"I got a chance to meet them this week only. I spoke to them and was feeling great. But I realised that they had this guilt of not winning the World Cup. They were feeling nervous," he said.

PM Modi said "But I told them, in this day and age, expectations are raised so much. And then, if our team can't win some people don't even respect basic decencies. But, the way India supported the women's cricket team shows a shift. I am happy how India took pride in the team's accomplishment."

"I told them that it was the first time that when our team lost in the finals, 125 crore Indians carried their defeat in the final, on their shoulders, and this was, in fact, their greatest victory. Even though the team could not win the World Cup, they won the hearts of 125 crore Indians," he added.
