“The young team had faced various problems. We lost so badly, but we overcome fast and win next match. Despite injury problems our players stay in the field. In challenging conditions, our young players had faced challenges, they find out new solutions. Some players had less experience, but their determination was so strong. As soon as they got a chance they made a history. The young team had both talent and temperament and they defeated a team who has experience and senior players,” Modi said.


The Prime Minister said this performance of the young players is not only important in view of sports, it also a big life lesson.
