India’s T20 World Cup winning squad was welcomed with a water salute at Mumbai’s Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport. Notably, a water salute is a rare occurrence and is done as a mark of respect or appreciation. India managed to win the T20 World Cup after 17 years and an ICC trophy after 11 years, for which, a special arrangement was made.

Meanwhile, thousands of fans have gathered at Marine Drive and Wankhede Stadium to celebrate India’s win. The crowd in Wankhede Stadium was seen cheering the names of Rohit Sharma and Hardik Pandya while people in Marine Drive didn’t leave despite heavy rain. For Hardik Pandya, life came full circle.
