Team India Captain Rohit Sharma’s Triumphant Homecoming

Team India captain Rohit Sharma received a special welcome from his childhood friends and family members as he returned home on Thursday, following India’s T20 World Cup success. Rohit led India to their second T20 World Cup title last week, with the team defeating South Africa in the final in Barbados. Upon arrival in Mumbai, the Indian team received a raucous reception, with fans gathering in large numbers to witness the team’s open bus victory parade. The BCCI also organized a special felicitation ceremony at the Wankhede Stadium, where they distributed Rs 125 crore in prize money to the team. Late on Thursday, the players and support staff members headed to their respective homes after celebrating the victory with the fans.

Rohit Sharma reached home on Thursday, unaware of the surprise his friends and family had planned for him. India batter Tilak Varma was also present, and he, along with Rohit’s friends, saluted the Indian captain. In a viral video, they mobbed Rohit, hugged him, and lifted the star batter on their shoulders. Rohit fondly recalled being part of the 2007 T20 World Cup victory parade in Mumbai when he was an emerging star in international cricket at the age of 20. He expressed happiness at how much this win means to people in India and the pride he felt leading the team to victory.

“2007 was a different feeling. We started off in the afternoon and this is in the evening. I cannot forget 2007, as it was my first World Cup. This is a little more special because I was leading the team. So it is a very proud moment for me. This is going to be mad. You can make out the excitement, and it shows how much it means not just to us but also to the entire nation. It means a lot. So I am very happy that we could achieve something like this for them as well,” said Rohit.

For the unversed, Rohit announced his T20I retirement hours after India’s win in the final.
