The Indian men’s cricket team, led by captain Rohit Sharma, celebrated their monumental T20 World Cup 2024 victory at the residence of Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In a meeting on Thursday, Sharma expressed the team’s hard work and long wait for this achievement, highlighting their perseverance and dedication.

Reflecting on the journey, Sharma mentioned, “The team had come very close to winning the World Cup 2023 but could not finally win it. This time, we were able to achieve it owing to everybody’s efforts.”

Former captain and star batter Virat Kohli shared his personal challenges and triumphs. Kohli, who faced back-to-back failures in the previous World Cup, emphasized the importance of setting aside his ego to perform at his best during the World Cup Final against South Africa.

Suryakumar Yadav, who took an extraordinary catch to dismiss South African batsman David Miller in the final over, turning the match in India’s favor, spoke about the team’s rigorous practice. “The team practices such catches a lot, and I did not think much while going for it,” Yadav said.

All-rounder Hardik Pandya, a key player in India’s victories throughout the tournament, and who bowled an exceptional spell in the final match, expressed his desire to silence critics through his performance. “I wanted to give an answer to my critics, and I wanted to give it through my performance,” Pandya stated.

Jasprit Bumrah, who led the Indian bowling attack and won the Man of the Tournament trophy, shared his satisfaction in contributing to the team’s success. “I feel good whenever my efforts help Team India win from a difficult situation,” Bumrah said.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi praised the team for their dedication and hard work, hosting them at his residence to honor their achievement. The celebration marked a significant moment for Indian cricket, as the team reflected on their journey and looked forward to future successes.
