Meeting Between The Indian Cricket Team And PM Modi, With An Open Bus Parade Planned In Mumbai

The winning Indian cricket team, captained by Rohit Sharma, had breakfast with Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Thursday at his home.

In the final held last Saturday in Bridgetown, Barbados, the Indian squad defeated South Africa by seven runs to win the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. Unfortunately, the Indian team’s travel plans were delayed by bad weather that resulted in the closure of airport operations and a lockdown scenario because of the hurricane.

Air India organized a special flight to return the stranded cricket players, support staff, and media contingent home after the Bridgetown airport opened.
The Indian team visited the Prime Minister for breakfast shortly after arriving in the city and booked into the ITC Maurya. To commemorate India’s World Cup victory, ace batter Virat Kohli, coach Rahul Dravid, and captain Rohit cut a special cake at the hotel.

Players laughed and told stories of their victories during the hour-long meeting. ‘Champions’ was inscribed on a personalized jersey worn by the team.
The Prime Minister praised the team as the meeting got underway at approximately 11 a.m. During the morning meeting, Dravid, Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav, and Hardik Pandya also shared their experiences.

Attendees included the president Roger Binny and secretary Jay Shah of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
In the meantime, everything is set up for the Indian team’s Thursday night open bus parade in Mumbai. The BCCI will honour the cricket players at Wankhede Stadium, where the bus procession will begin at Nariman Point and end.

The open bus is blue, as one might anticipate, and has a billboard on the sides celebrating India’s World Cup victory.
A large poster of the Indian team winning the T20 World Cup is also present.
‘Champions 2024’ is inscribed on the front of the open bus.
Free admission for spectators to the Wankhede Stadium has been announced by the Maharashtra Cricket Association.
The winning Indian team would receive INR 125 crore in prize money, according to BCCI secretary Jay Shah.
