We stand with you today and always: Narendra Modi writes on X after India's World Cup defeat

Indian PM Narendra Modi on Sunday penned down a heart-warming message for Indian team after Rohit Sharma and his men were defeated in the World Cup final by Australia where he said the nation will always stand with the Men in Blue.

"Dear Team India, Your talent and determination through the World Cup was noteworthy. You've played with great spirit and brought immense pride to the nation," Modi wrote on X.

"We stand with you today and always," he said.

He congratulated the Australia squad for winning their sixth World Cup title.

"Congratulations to Australia on a magnificent World Cup victory! Theirs was a commendable performance through the tournament, culminating in a splendid triumph. Compliments to Travis Head for his remarkable game today," he said.

Travis Head played like a champion as he smashed a heroic century to help Australia beat India by six wickets in the final of the 50-over World Cup at the showpiece Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday, shattering the dreams of a cricket-crazy nation which was believing that their heroes would lift the trophy for third time.

India dominated the tournament with 10 straight victories and with Australia in the final, the script was set for a grand show in the world's biggest cricket stadium that was hosting the mega event for the first time.

Australia put up an all-round performance against the host nation as the bowlers first bowled out India for 240 runs in 50 overs and then the batsmen completed the task of reaching the target in 43 overs by losing four wickets.
