From a youthful 21-year-old to grace the field during the 50-over World Cup final against Sri Lanka in 2011 and scoring a priceless 35-run knock to becoming the central figure during the celebratory open-bus parade five days after clinching the T20 World Cup 2024, Virat Kohli has held a significant position in the hearts of Mumbai’s public. His Player of the Match performance in the pivotal final in Barbados, 13 years later, underscored his enduring impact, both as an impeccable player as well as a vibrant personality.

The fervent gathering of fans at the Queen’s Necklace vividly displayed its passion, with many enthusiastically chanting and capturing moments on their devices. In a notable scene captured at Marine Drive during twilight, the crowd echoed “Kohli-Kohli.” This prompted an impassioned response from Virat, who graciously acknowledged the crowd with a gesture of affection, a flying kiss, further igniting their enthusiasm and creating a truly memorable atmosphere for all witnesses.

Following the culmination of the 90-minute open-top bus parade, the Indian team proceeded to a packed Wankhede Stadium for an elaborate ceremony. This grand occasion featured in-depth personal interviews with key players and head coach Rahul Dravid, marking his final assignment in the T20 format for the nation. Additionally, BCCI officials were on hand to present the team with a substantial bonus cheque of INR 125 crore, recognizing their unwavering grit, tenacity, and exceptional determination throughout the 20-over World Cup campaign in the Americas.

Kohli, who declared that the match against South Africa would mark his retirement from T20Is, experienced an unforgettable farewell. The raucous chants of his name from the Mumbai crowd represented the pinnacle of his departure, a moment he would undoubtedly cherish for years to come.
