Best Memes From PM Narendra Modi’s Visit To 4th India vs Australia Test In Ahmedabad: The talks on the morning of Day 1 of the 4th Test between India and Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy weren’t as much about the cricket, but about two special dignitaries – India’s prime minister Narendra Modi and Australia’s prime minister Anthony Albanese, both of whom hogged all the limelight in the early hours at the Narendra Modi stadium before actual cricket took place.
Aussie PM Anthony Albanese is currently on a 4-day state trip to India from March 8 to March 11. It’s the first visit by an Australian prime minister in six years and comes on the heels of the Economic Cooperation and Trade Agreement (ECTA), which entered into force in December.
Anthony Albanese and Narendra Modi were in attendance for an hour at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad, where the 4th and last Test of this series is being played.
The BCCI president Roger Binny felicitated Australia’s prime minister Anthony Albanese, while the BCCI secretary Jay Shah felicitated the India’s prime minister Narendra Modi. Both the political leaders of their countries presented Test caps to their respective cricket captains: Steve Smith got his Baggy Green from Anthony Albanese while Rohit Sharma got his special blue Test cap from PM Narendra Modi.
PM Narendra Modi is a big Indian cricket fan
After this, both the PMs went on a lap of honor standing in a specially made grand chariot. They waved to the crowd with beaming smiles and the crowd reciprocated them with big cheers and salutes.
After the toss and prior to the kick-off, both the PMs met the players of their countries. Captains Rohit Sharma and Steve Smith strode alongside their respective Prime Ministers and introduced each player. Both the PMs also stood in the national anthems.
About an hour later, both took the exit for their other duties and to continue the trip of the Aussie PM.
As usual, fans on social media made some hilarious memes on this visit from PM Narendra Modi to the Narendra Modi stadium.
