Team India celebrated their historic T20 World Cup 2024 victory with a grand victory parade along Mumbai’s iconic Marine Drive. The Men in Blue, who clinched the title in the USA and West Indies, returned to a hero’s welcomed in Delhi and Mumbai. The team, delayed by a few days due to Hurricane Beryl in the Caribbean, finally landed in Delhi on Thursday, where they were greeted by large crowd of ecstatic fans.  

The celebrations continued in Mumbai, where thousands of supporters lined the streets to catch a glimpse of their champions. The victory parade commenced at Nariman Point and proceeded along Marine Drive to the Wankhede Stadium. The journey, despite covering just 1 km, took nearly an hour as the open bus carrying the team moved slowly to allow the players to interact with their fans.  

Upon arrival at the Wankhede Stadium, a special felicitation program was held. The highlight of the event was the presentation of a Rs 125 crore cheque to the team by BCCI Secretary Jay Shah, fulfilling a promise made prior to the tournament. The players were lauded for their outstanding achievement in bringing home the coveted trophy. 

Following the felicitation, the Men in Blue took a lap of honour around the stadium. The atmosphere was party-like and celebratory as the players sang, danced, and expressed their gratitude to the fans who supported them throughout their journey. The celebration was a heartfelt thank-you to the nation before the team retreated to the pavilion, marking the end of a memorable day.  

Adding to the joy, Indian fast bowler Mohammed Siraj invited fans for another victory rally in his hometown of Hyderabad. To recreate the victory rally in Hyderabad, Siraj took to Instagram to invite fans to join him on July 5th at 6:30 pm from Sarojni Eye Hospital, Mehdipatnam to Eidgah Ground. Looks like India just can’t get enough of the celebrations after the long-awaited win in the T20 World Cup.
