Sir, we extend our heartfelt gratitude to you for your inspiring words and the invaluable support you have provided to Team India.”

During the meeting with the Prime Minister, the ‘Men in Blue’ donned a special jersey featuring two stars above the BCCI emblem, symbolizing their two T20 World Cup victories. The jersey boldly displayed the word ‘CHAMPIONS.’

After the meeting, the Prime Minister tweeted, calling the meeting ‘excellent.’

“An excellent meeting with our Champions! Hosted the World Cup winning team at 7, LKM and had a memorable conversation on their experiences through the tournament,” PM Modi posted.

After the meeting, the victorious cricketers headed to the Delhi airport to catch a flight to Mumbai, where a grand victory parade awaited them at Marine Drive and Wankhede Stadium.

Shiv Sena leader Pratap Sarnaik told ANI, “Today’s program in Mumbai has been organized by BCCI. Team India players from Mumbai, including Captain Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dubey, and Yashasvi Jaiswal, will come to the Maharashtra Assembly tomorrow to meet CM Eknath Shinde.”
