“In your trademark unassuming style you shared a video that was enough to become a passionate discussion point for entire nation. 130 Cr Indians were disappointed but also eternally grateful for all that you have done for Indian cricket in the last decade-and-a-half,” PM Modi wrote in a two-page long letter.
