Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi has been known to inspire many and the latest to join his fan club is none other than India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. Currently touring the Carribean for India’s limited-overs series, Jadeja was seen cycling on Wednesday morning outside the team hotel. Jadeja later took to Twitter on Thursday and revealed that Modi was his inspiration behind taking the bicycle ride.
It could also be a stance of Jadeja returning the favour. Earlier in 2015, Modi addressed Jadeja as “Sir”, on Twitter and wished the left-handed all-rounder best of luck prior to the World Cup which was jointly hosted by Australia and New Zealand. The final was played between the tournament’s two co-hosts and was eventually won by Australia.
Who is not a fan of Sir Jadeja? We all look forward to seeing your all round performances take India to victory! @imjadeja
