A fitting reward

The celebrations concluded with a grand gesture by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), as Team India was presented with a check for INR 125 crore. This generous reward served as a token of appreciation for ending India’s 11-year ICC title drought, a testament to the team’s dedication and perseverance.

“A big thank you to all the people turning up in the stadium and what we saw on the streets is something I’m not going to forget in my life,” said a visibly moved Kohli. This heartfelt message echoed the team spirit that propelled them to victory. Speaking at the presentation ceremony, captain Rohit emphasized the collective effort, stating that the T20 World Cup trophy “belongs to the entire nation.”

The day was not just about celebrating a victory; it was a celebration of the unifying power of cricket and the unwavering support of Indian fans. The team’s heartwarming display at the Wankhede stadium will be etched in the memory of fans for years to come.
