After India’s defeat, Bollywood megastar Shah Rukh Khan released a special message on social networking website X (formerly Twitter) to encourage his team.
Shah Rukh Khan said “It is an honor to see the passion and dedication with which the Indian team played this entire tournament, all the players showed great spirit and determination”.
The actor said, “It’s a game where losing is always winning, not always winning. There are days when a team loses and that’s what happened in the final. Despite the defeat, we are grateful to the Indian team who made us feel proud by showing a wonderful game.
