Indian captain Virat Kohli might be in England, looking to bring back the World Cup home, but the importance of the political situation back home is not lost upon him. Reacting to the massive victory of Bharatiya Janata Party in the parliamentary elections, Kohli tweeted a message congratulating Prime Minister Narendra Modi on winning a second term.
“Congratulations @narendramodi ji. We believe India is going to reach greater heights with your vision. Jai hind,” Kohli wrote on the social media platform.
Apart from Kohli, many cricketers and other sports personalities have also extended their congratulatory messages to PM Modi, who is now set to start his second term as PM.
Kohli and the Indian team has reached England and also had their first practice session on Thursday. The team will play a warm-up match against Bangladesh on Saturday. They next take on New Zealand in their final warm-up match before opening the campaign against South Africa on June 5.
