The Indian men’s cricket team earned laurels at the recently concluded Asian Games 2023. The Ruturaj Gaikwad-led side, who began their campaign in the quarterfinals owing to their higher rank in the ICC Rankings, made their way into the final, beating Nepal and Bangladesh before going past Afghanistan in the final after the match was abandoned with rain playing a spoilsport.  

After they returned to India post their successful campaign in Hangzhou, China, the athletes were called by the Prime Minister Narendra Modi in a greeting meet. While all athletes, who were part of the Asian Games 2023, were seen donning their kit in the greeting ceremony, specially organised for them and amid this, the Indian men’s cricket team was seen expressing a brilliant gesture.

The Gaikwad-led side gifted the Indian PM a signed bat and Indian jersey, pictures of which are now doing rounds on social media.
