The T20 World Cup-winning Team India returned home to a euphoric reception on Thursday morning, after winning the title in Barbados.  Hundreds of fans were seen holding the national flag and cheering for their favourite players at the Indira Gandhi International Airport. They spent close to two hours at the residence of the Prime Minister before heading back to the hotel. The players will fly to Mumbai at 2pm to participate in an open bus victory parade starting at 5pm followed by a felicitation ceremony at the Wankhede Stadium.

Some fans claimed that they had been waiting outside the airport since last night.

A fan, Piyush Arora expressed happiness and said, “…We came to T3 because we are very excited. We came to the airport at 3 am.”

A young fan of the Men`s Indian Cricket Team, Viren said, “I am a huge fan of Jasprit Bumrah and I am waiting for him. I have been standing here since 5:30 AM. I am a huge fan of the Indian Cricket Team..”

Earlier, the flight of the Indian players was delayed due to Hurricane Beryl in Barbados post the T20 World Cup 2024 final.  The fans in Mumbai are eagerly awaiting the arrival of their heroes. A similar road show was held in Mumbai 17 years ago when Mahendra Singh Dhoni`s team defeated arch-rivals Pakistan in the final of the inaugural 2007 World T20 in South Africa.
