The IPL match between Rajasthan Royals and Delhi Daredevils in Ahmedabad saw Narendra Modi supporters cheering for the BJP prime ministerial candidate and shouting slogans in his favour.

Around 400 Modi supporters, wearing saffron caps with the message 'Modi for PM' and seated across the stadium, kept up the 'Modi-Modi' chant from the start.

Modi is set to take over as the next prime minister of India, with counting trends showing the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) headed for the most resounding election victory the country has seen in 30 years.

The BJP was winning in 277 seats of the 543-seat parliament, counting trends showed. An alliance led by the party was ahead in 336 seats, reports said.
