The cricketing world witnessed a historic moment on Saturday as India clinched their second T20 World Cup title, defeating South Africa in a nail-biting final by a mere seven runs. The victory sent a wave of elation across the nation, and former Indian captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, who led the team to their maiden T20 World Cup win in 2007, was no exception.

Taking to his Instagram account, Dhoni, known for his stoic demeanor on the field, couldn’t hide his excitement. He addressed the team as “WORLD CUP CHAMPIONS 2024,” acknowledging the immense pressure they faced throughout the tournament. His message highlighted the team’s ability to stay calm under duress, particularly praising their “self-belief” – a quality Dhoni himself instilled in his teams during his captaincy.

The final itself was a tense affair. India, batting first, set a competitive target of 176 runs, with Virat Kohli returning to form with a brilliant 59-ball 76 and Axar Patel providing a crucial 31-ball 47 lower down the order. The bowling attack then rose to the occasion, with Jasprit Bumrah and Arshdeep Singh showcasing exceptional control in the death overs. However, the true hero of the final might be Suryakumar Yadav, whose breathtaking catch in the final over secured a win for India.

His playful “arre” followed by “thanks for the priceless birthday gift” perfectly encapsulated the joy of the nation and the personal connection Dhoni feels with the team’s success.
