Former India cricketer and head coach Ravi Shastri hailed the Prime Minister for visiting the Indian team dressing room after a heartbreaking defeat to Australia in the final of the ICC World Cup 2023 at the Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad.

"I think it's an outstanding thing simply because I know what a dressing room feels like and I have been in that dressing room for more than seven years as a coach of India apart from many years as a cricketer. It is a gut-wrenching feeling and when you are down then you seem that you are out."

"When you get someone like the Prime Minister of the country coming and visiting the dressing room, it is something massive because it can lift the spirits of the players. This is no ordinary man walking in. When you have Prime Minister of a country walking into the dressing room is special. I know what the players would have felt like I know what I would have felt like you know if I was a coach of India," said Ravi Shastri on PM Modi's visit to Team India dressing room while speaking to ANI.
