Last Sunday was a pretty unusual sight in the country where every house was bleeding blue but this time for the Indian women cricket team competing against England for the Women's World Cup final. 

Even though Mithali Raj and her girl lost the match by just 9 runs, they won several hearts back home. 

Congratulatory and encouraging messages started pouring in from the fans, Bollywood celebs and even Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The feisty Indian Women cricket team returned to the country this morning and their fans thronged the airport in huge numbers to extend their warm welcome to the team. The players also received a grand reception at the airport, with family members putting 'tilak' on the girls' forehead.

Speaking to a leading news agency, Indian spinner Poonam Yadav, lauded the performance of the team.

"We played really well during this World Cup. Our performance was consistent throughout the tournament. Our performance was not dependent on any particular individual. It was a complete team performance. I think this performance will really boost the girls in the future,' she said while adding, "We just couldn't win the World Cup. It doesn't matter."

"Both Mithali and Jhulan are legends. They made very important contributions to the team. We wanted to win the World Cup for them. We tried our level best. They both helped us a lot and that's why we ended up being the runners-up in the tournament," she added.
