PM Narendra Modi praises Indian Cricket Team, R Ashwin for their heroics

Prime Minister Narendra Modi today heaped praises on the Indian Cricket Team for having done the nation proud after their recent heroics against England. 

In his popular 'Mann Ki Baat' address to the nation, the Prime Minister appreciated Virat Kohli and his men for routing England 4-0 in the just-concluded Test series.

"Being Indians, it is but natural for us to feel elated. In the cricket series against England, India has triumphed 4-0. In this, the performance of some of the younger players deserves a special word of praise. The young Karun Nair scored a triple century and K L Rahul played a brilliant 199 run innings. Test captain Virat Kohli batted extremely well and also provided inspiring leadership," Modi said. 

He also spoke of off-spinner R Ashwin after the Tamil Nadu lad clinched the ICC Award for Best Test Cricketer. 

"Indian Cricket team's off-spin bowler R Ashwin has been declared 'Cricketer of the Year' as well as the 'Best Test Cricketer' by the ICC for the year 2016. My heartiest congratulations and many good wishes go to all of them," he added.
