Jay Shah presents INR 125 crore cheque to World Cup-winning Team India at Wankhede Stadium

July 4, 2024, became a monumental day in the annals of Indian cricket for numerous reasons. The team had the privilege of meeting India’s Prime Minister, Narendra Modi, in Delhi, where they enjoyed a heartfelt interaction. Additionally, they were overwhelmed by the intense and unwavering passion of the crowd that filled every corner of Marine Drive. During the open-top bus parade, the team witnessed the fervent adoration from spectators and fans who ceaselessly cheered as the bus made its slow journey amidst the absolute pandemonium from Nariman Point to the Wankhede Stadium, approximately a kilometer away from each other.

Upon arriving at the stadium, the Indian team embarked on a victory lap around the entire ground which was packed to its last seat. Rohit Sharma & Co. visibly appreciated the fervent enthusiasm of the crowd. The scene became even more entertaining and wholesome when the Indian players began showing off their dance moves, breaking a leg to some lively music and beats, making for an absolute treat to watch.

However, the most anticipated moment came after all this, when head coach Rahul Dravid, the iconic Virat Kohli, pace-bowling spearhead Jasprit Bumrah, and the local boy and skipper Rohit Sharma, were interviewed and shared their heartfelt emotions with the ardent Wankhede crowd. Following the dialogue, a special moment unfolded involving the Secretary of the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Jay Shah, along with the Indian team.

As promised by Shah and the BCCI via a recent tweet, the team was presented with a cheque of an additional bonus of an elephantine INR 125 crore. This reward was given in recognition of their tenacity and effort in ending the 11-year drought in terms of bagging an ICC trophy. This came after the International Cricket Council themselves awarded the team a pre-decided INR 20.12 crore for their victory in the mega-event hosted in the USA and the West Indies.
