The Indian streets of Mumbai came alive today as the T20 world cup team celebrated their win through a procession in the city after they returned from the Caribbean.

Rich in tricolour attire, thousands of fans welcomed the team on the Marine Drive, cheering out loud ‘India, India’ while the team traveled through the open top buses. The Indian cricket team led by captain Rohit Sharma heroically posed with the trophy they claimed after winning the T20 World Cup by seven runs in a nail-biting last match against South Africa in Barbados on June 29.

The celebration in Mumbai was followed by a hectic day for the team as they flew to Delhi this morning and then went straight into a meeting with the Indian Premier League. Upon arrival, the players were taken directly to the ITM Maurya Hotel for a breakfast meet before the scheduled face-to-face with Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi at his residence.

The formal send off happened during the parade when Rahul Dravid, the outgoing coach said, “I will miss this love” indicating his time with the team was up. The wicket keeper batsman has been one of the key figures in leading Indian team to its current state and now his exit also brings a sense of ending to Indian cricket.

This event caused the team to be stranded for two days in India as they arrived late due to Hurricane Beryl in Barbados. When the violence erupted the BCCI booked a chartered flight for the safe return of the players, the support staff that included their families and the media professionals who were covering the event.

India has won this T20 World Cup title to add to the title they won in 2007, seventeen years ago. The victory has created joy and festivity across the country as the cricket fans celebrate over the team’s victory.

In the final moments of the parade, players expressed their gratitude towards the spectators for their support during the entire competition. Apart from it, it strengthens India’s position in cricket and gives a rare moment of joy and pride for every Indian.
