Addressing a function on the broadcasting rights of domestic cricket, the prime minister said that there is nowhere in the world as much talent in our country and if we change the structure of cricket. “No one can defeat us,” he said.
He said that the signing of the Broadcasting Agreement on Domestic Cricket was an important development and the Broadcasting Agreement would promote cricket.
The prime minister said that in the past, cricket was given a place to like-minded people, and recruiting people on the recommendation in institutions weakens the system but a strong system is needed to improve the players.
