Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi applauded the Indian cricket team for their sumptous efforts against Australia in the “Border Gavaskar” series Down Under. PM Narendra Modi, in his latest ‘Mann Ki Baat’ episode, appreciated the spirit and character shown by the ‘Men in Blue’ in the Australian soil. The Ajinkya Rahane-led Indian side, despite of several drawbacks, managed to clinch the auspicious ‘Border Gavaskar’ trophy against the mighty Australians.
