The PM also took note of the fact the Indian team won the final without dropping a match, and mentioned it during the interaction with the players. He said it made the win even more special.

The PM said his office would coordinate the players’ visit to his residence.

Aware of India’s record in the tournament, the PM asked when did the team start to think that it could go all the way to pull off a win of this magnitude and create history.

Srikanth said that it was after the win over Malaysia in the quarterfinals that the team started to believe that it can do something special this time around. Sen and Prannoy echoed Srikanth’s thoughts, while thanking the PM for his encouragement and motivation.

Modi said the team’s coaches also deserve a lot of credit for this achievement, while observing that the quarterfinals was a neck-to-neck affair.

Vimal Kumar, the coach of the team, was short of words to describe his emotions and compared the win with Indian men’s cricket team victory at the 1983 World Cup in England.
