Packed-to-the-brim Marine Drive in raptures as Indian team embarks on open-top bus parade

The meet-and-greet session with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi and the grand reception at Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai were merely the tip of the iceberg in setting the stage for the exuberance and jubilation that followed. The true celebration unfolded along the entire stretch of Marine Drive, where passionate Indian supporters, adorned in vibrant Indian jerseys, eagerly awaited the afternoon’s open-top bus parade, which commenced around 4:30 pm from Nariman Point – a delayed start due to traffic and rain obstructing the team to be there for the majestic event on time.

It seemed as though the Queen’s Necklace had lived up to its name, adorned with a twilight backdrop as the sun gracefully transitioned into another phase of its celestial journey. Despite the waning sunlight, there was no diminishing the spirit of the passionate Indian fans, who wholeheartedly engaged in chanting support and capturing countless moments with their array of electronic devices.

From an aerial perspective, the scene resembled a radiant spectacle, illuminating the stars of the day – the highly-celebrated Indian team.
