A Day Full of Celebrations

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) has organized a series of events for the victorious team, including an audience with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi and a roadshow in Mumbai later in the evening. Upon landing in the national capital, the team checked into the ITC Maurya Hotel and immediately headed to the Prime Minister’s residence for a special meeting.

Meeting with Prime Minister Modi

The team’s meeting with Prime Minister Modi took place in two batches—first with the players and then with the support staff. This meeting started at 9:30 AM and was followed by a special meal. During this event, the team carried the T20 World Cup trophy, symbolizing their recent triumph.

Journey to Mumbai

The group took a charter airplane to Mumbai after the conference. The Indian cricket team arrived in Mumbai in the afternoon ready for a huge victory parade. The open-top bus procession began at the Air India Building at Nariman Point and ended at the historic Wankhede Stadium.

Victory Parade and Felicitation

The victory parade in Mumbai was a spectacular event with thousands of fans lining the streets to catch a glimpse of their heroes. The traffic police had closed several roads and prohibited parking on key routes to ensure a smooth procession.

At Wankhede Stadium, the team was felicitated by the BCCI in a grand ceremony. The event was a celebration of their hard-fought victory and a recognition of their dedication and hard work.

Hurricane Beryl Ordeal

The team’s departure from Barbados was delayed due to Hurricane Beryl which caused a complete shutdown of the island including the airport. The team eventually left Barbados around 4:30 AM (Eastern Time) on Wednesday and arrived in New Delhi after a 16-hour non-stop flight.

Rousing Reception in New Delhi

The team was welcomed by hundreds of fans waving the national flag and holding placards upon arrival at the IGI Airport in New Delhi. BCCI secretary Jay Shah was present to greet the players and handed a bouquet to captain Rohit Sharma.

Celebrations in Delhi

At the ITC Maurya Hotel the team was greeted with chants of “Chak De India” and traditional dhol beats. Players like Rishabh Pant and Suryakumar Yadav were seen dancing along with the performers adding to the festive atmosphere.

Traffic Restrictions in Mumbai:

For the victory parade in Mumbai, several roads were closed and parking was prohibited on key routes. The Mumbai traffic police ensured smooth proceedings by managing vehicular restrictions and traffic diversions.

The Indian cricket team’s victory has rekindled the nation’s passion for cricket and restored its pride on the international stage. As the celebrations continue, the team will cherish this momentous achievement and look forward to future successes.
