Team India to celebrate T20 World Cup 2024 title win with open bus parade, small function at Wankhede in Mumbai | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Like it was in 2007, when an MS Dhoni-led Team India won the inaugural T20 World Cup, the Rohit Sharma-led Indian men’s cricket team will celebrate the T20 World Cup 2024 title win with an open bus parade, followed by a small function at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. Stranded in Barbados for the past three days due to hurricane Beryl, India’s victorious players took a specially arranged ‘Long Range’ Air India chartered aircraft to Delhi late night (local time), when it was Wednesday afternoon in India.
After their arrival in New Delhi in the early hours of Thursday, Rohit & Co are likely to to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi for breakfast. After that, Team India will board a chartered flight to Mumbai. In 2007 as well, after winning the inaugural edition of the T20 World Cup, Indian players celebrated the historic feat with an open bus parade in Mumbai.

“The BCCI is planning a victory parade for the World Champion India team tomorrow evening at the Wankhede Stadium. Further details are awaited. The same will be shared as soon as the final plan is chalked out,” a reliable source told TOI.
It’s learnt that the Team India players will be driven from the Mumbai airport to near the Wankhede Stadium. From about a kilometre from the stadium, they will be taken in an open bus parade to the Wankhede, where a small presentation ceremony -with Rohit handing over the World Cup trophy to BCCI secretary Jay Shah, is likely to take place.
India defeated South Africa by seven runs in a thrilling T20 World Cup 2024 final played in Barbados on Saturday to end their agonising 11-year wait for an ICC trophy, and 17-year wait for the T20 World Cup trophy.

Barbados has been on high alert due to the Hurricane Beryl threat in the island nation since Sunday.
