New Delhi, Feb 15: Prime Minister Narendra Modi tweeted his congratulations to the Indian cricket team for its victory over Pakistan in a World Cup pool match in Adelaide.
"Congrats Team India. Well played. We are all very proud of you," the prime minister wrote on his Twitter handle @narendramodi.
India defeated Pakistan by 76 runs in their first Pool B match of the World Cup at the Adelaide Oval Sunday. Chasing India's 300/7, Pakistan were bowled out for 224.
The Prime Minister had earlier wished all the Indian cricketers individually just before the start of the quadrennial extravaganza.
In the high-voltage match between the bitter rivals, India again emerged victorious in a rather one-sided affair, thus maintaining their magnificent record against Pakistan by winning the sixth consecutive World Cup game since the rivalry started way back in 1992.
Congrats Team India. Well played. We are all very proud of you.— Narendra Modi (@narendramodi) February 15, 2015
