Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Tuesday released a video from the Indian dressing room after ICC World Cup finals loss where he is heard having a pep talk with the players.

Trying to lift their spirits, the PM spoke to the players, including Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma, Jasprit Bumrah, Ravindra Jadeja and Mohammed Shami.

"Aap log poora 10-10 game jeet ke aaye ho, yeh toh hota rehta hai. Muskuraiye bhai, desh aap logon ko dekh raha hai. Maine socha mil lun sab ko.” Modi said.

Speaking to Ravindra Jadeja, the PM said, "Kya babu,” and to Jasprit Bumrah he asked: “Tum Gujarati bolte ho, (both laughed as Bumrah replied thori thori)".

The Prime Minster also praised Mohammed Shami who ended the tournament as the top wicket-taker. "Arrey Shami, bahut accha kiya iss baar," and he hugged him.
