Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday  hosted  the  women’s cricket team and told the players that  they  made  the  nation  proud  like several  other  “daughters”  of  the  country. The team has returned from London after  participating  in  Women’s  World Cup  in  which  India  lost  to  England  in the final played last Sunday.

Modi  had  posted  a  series  of  tweets before  the  match  to  wish  luck  to  the team  and  to  players  individually.  He had also tweeted soon after the match to hail the team’s performance. During  the  interaction  today,  the players said that this was the first time that  they  had  seen  a  Prime  Minister tweeting for the women’s cricket team, the PMO said.

They said that they felt proud, happy and inspired to know that the Prime Minister was following their progress, PMO said in a statement. Responding  to  questions  asked  by the  players  on  handling  pressure,  the Prime  Minister  said  that  yoga  helps achieve  a  good  balance  between  mind, body and action. He also said that practice of yoga helps develop detachment, it said.

Telling the players that they had not “lost”, the Prime Minister said that 125 crore Indians carried their defeat in the final, on their shoulders, and this was, in fact, their greatest victory, the statement said. Modi said India’s daughters have made the nation proud in many international sporting events and that the society is benefiting from the progress that women are making in various fields. Besides sports, he mentioned the school results of Class 10 and 12; and women space scientists who have played a key role in prestigious ISRO missions. The players presented a signed cricket bat to the Prime Minister.
