The chefs of ITC Maurya designed a special three-tier cake with the hues of orange, blue and white, representing the colours of the Indian flag. The cake was topped with a replica of the T20 World Cup trophy and photos of India’s memorable win at Kensington Oval, Barbados. The players were also wearing special India jerseys designed for the celebration with ‘Champions’ inscribed in place of the sponsor’s name in India’s T20 World Cup jersey.
