Prime Minister congratulates Team India

June 25, 2010 13:04 IST

Prime Minister Manmohan Singh on Friday congratulated the Indian cricket team for winning the Asia Cup after a gap of 15 years.

India overwhelmed the hosts Sri Lanka by 81 runs in the final on Thursday to win the four-nation tournament in Dambulla.

"The players displayed team spirit and fighting qualities in bringing laurels to the country," he said.

India had last won the Asia Cup in 1995 under Mohammed Azharuddin in Sharjah.
