World Cup Final: 'We will bounce back', Shami, Jadeja share heartfelt message following India's defeat to Australia

Sharing a photo of Prime Minister Narendra Modi consoling him, Shami wrote: “Unfortunately yesterday was not our day. I would like to thank all Indians for supporting our team and me throughout the tournament. Thankful to PM  @narendramodi for specially coming to the dressing room and raising our spirits. We will bounce back!”

Ravindra Jadeja too shared a photo of India players meetiing PM Modi in the dressing room after the final, terming as “special and motivating”.

India’s wait for a major ICC trophy in 10 years extended even further following the loss, and the defeat was even more traumatic given that the Men in Blue had won all 10 matches leading upto the final.

Having been put to bat by Australia, Rohit Sharma (47) got the hosts off to a fiery start before falling short of a fifty in the 10th over. Virat Kohli (54) and KL Rahul (66) steadied the ship with a allow 67-run stand, but the likes of Shreyas Iyer (4) and Shubman Gill (4) fell to big match pressure.

India were dismissed for 240, and even though Australia suffered initial hiccups in the chase to be restricted to 47/3, Travis Head (137) and Marnus Labuschagne (58*) forged a 192-run stand to eventually take Aussies to their sixth ODI World Cup title.
