New Delhi: India Prime Minister Narendra Modi has been known to inspire many and the latest to join his fan club is none other than India all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja. Currently in the West Indies for India’s limited-overs series, Jadeja was seen cycling on Wednesday morning outside the team hotel and on Thursday Jadeja revealed that Modi was his inspiration behind taking the bicycle ride.

Taking to Twitter, Jadeja wrote: “Thanks a lot sir. You inspiring all the Indians around the world. #greatmen #proudindian.”

India play five ODIs and one T20I against the West Indies. While the first two ODIs were played in Port of Spain, the next two ODIs are set to be played at the Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound before the teams finally move to Jamaica for the fifth ODI and the lone T20I.

While the first game of the ODI series was washed off due to rain, India produced a stunning all-round performance to thrash West Indies by 105 runs in the second ODI at the Queen's Park Stadium to take a 1-0 lead in the five match series on Sunday.

The bowlers stunned the hosts with their impeccable line and length after India's top three came up with the goods as the Men in Blue recorded their biggest ever victory in West Indies. Ajinkya Rahane smashed his third ODI hundred as India produced a dominating batting display to pile on 310 for 5 in their second cricket ODI.

Rahane (103) and his opening partner Dhawan (63) laid a strong foundation with a 114-run stand and despite a bit of a wobble in the middle overs, India went past 300 with captain Virat Kohli stamping his class with a 66-ball 87 later in the innings. Chasing a mammoth target of 311, West Indies got off to the worst start possible as Bhuvneshwar Kumar removed Kieron Powell for a duck.
