Indian cricket all-rounder Hardik Pandya has experienced a rollercoaster of a year. His first season as captain of the Mumbai Indians during the IPL 2024 was a letdown, leading to some fans at Wankhede Stadium booing him. Despite this, Pandya made a spectacular comeback in the T20 World Cup 2024, where he was a standout player, excelling with both bat and ball. His efforts were pivotal as India triumphed over South Africa in the final to secure the T20 World Cup title.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi recently remarked on his memorable conversation with the T20 World Cup-winning Indian cricket team, discussing their journey through the tournament held in the USA and the Caribbean.

The squad, led by Rohit Sharma, returned to Delhi early morning after being delayed in Bridgetown, Barbados due to a category 4 hurricane. Modi hosted the team at his residence, 7 Lok Kalyan Marg, for a breakfast meeting filled with engaging discussions about their World Cup experiences.

Photos shared on ‘X’ by Modi captured the lively interaction, with the players seated in a circle around him. Captain Rohit Sharma was positioned to Modi’s right, while head coach Rahul Dravid sat to his left. The team donned special jerseys emblazoned with ‘CHAMPIONS’ in bold letters and two stars above the Team India crest, symbolizing their two T20 World Cup victories.
