Ahmedabad: In the final of the World Cup, the humiliating defeat at the hands of Australia not only handed India a significant loss but also showcased Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s lack of sportsmanship towards the winning Australian captain.
At the conclusion of the World Cup final in Ahmedabad, Prime Minister Narendra Modi came to award the trophy to the victorious Australian captain, Pat Cummins. Modi handed the trophy to Cummins, turned away without shaking hands, and left without any exchange of pleasantries.

The surprising act left Pat Cummins holding the trophy in his hands, watching the Indian Prime Minister’s departure with bewilderment. The video of Prime Minister Modi’s derisive behavior with the Australian captain went viral on social media, drawing widespread criticism.
Many social media users expressed their expectation of such behavior from Modi, given his association with extremist ideologies. They believe that Modi’s conduct brought shame to India on the global stage.
