Prime Minister Narendra Modi during his visit to Chennai clicked a picture of the ongoing test match between India and England from up in the air on February 14. 

"Caught a fleeting view of an interesting test match in Chennai," Modi posted on his official Twitter handle with a beautiful image of the 'Chepauk' Stadium captured from his airplane. The tweet was then re-tweeted by the official handle of BCCI. 

The Prime Minister arrived in the Tamil Nadu capital earlier on Sunday morning and handed over the indigenously developed Arjun Main Battle Tank (Mark 1A) tanks to Army Chief General MM Naravane.

PM Modi also recently praised Team India’s exploits in the Test series against Australia, where they came back from behind and fought injuries to win the four-match series 2-1. 

In the ongoing second Test, India posted 329 after winning the toss and choosing to bat. Rohit Sharma scored 161 in an attacking knock, while Ajinkya Rahane and Rishabh Pant chipped in with crucial half-centuries. Ravichandran Ashwin then took his 29th five-wicket haul in Tests as England were bowled out for 134. India are looking to level the four-match series, after losing the opening match - also played at the same venue - by 227 runs.
