Rohit made this request to the fans on social media Team India will participate in the Victory Parade in Mumbai on July 4

New Delhi. Rohit and his party will reach Delhi early on Thursday (July 4), four days after winning the T20 World Cup. The celebration phase will begin once Team India reaches home. The players are also very excited about this. After arriving in New Delhi, the Indian team will have breakfast with Narendra Modi at the Prime Minister’s Residence (PMO). Team India’s return to the country was delayed by four days due to the stuck Beryl storm in Barbados. The BCCI sent a charter plane to Barbados to evacuate the players from there. The charter plane is carrying Indian players along with their families and team support staff including BCCI officials and Indian media personnel. Team India will leave Delhi directly for Mumbai where the victory parade will be held. On the occasion of this special occasion, Rohit has urged his fans to come in maximum numbers and enjoy this special moment.

Rohit Sharma wrote a post on x.com, ‘We want to celebrate this special moment with you all. Let’s celebrate this victory with a victory parade at Marine Drive and Wankhede on 4th July from 5pm onwards. The trophy is coming home.’ India defeated South Africa by 7 runs in the final of the 2024 T20 World Cup to become T20 World Champions for the second time.

Rajiv Shukla Confirmed
BCCI vice-president Rajiv Shukla said, “The Prime Minister has hosted a welcome ceremony for the team at his residence at 11 am. Team India, tired from the month-long T20 World Cup played at six venues in the US and the Caribbean, will leave for Mumbai after spending time with the Prime Minister.

A 2-kilometer victory parade will be held
After returning from Delhi, the Indian team will start a 2 km lap of honour from the National Centre for Performing Arts (NPCA) to the Wankhede Stadium at 17:00 IST. Just like after winning the inaugural T20 World Cup in 2007, the entire team will hold a victory parade in an open bus to celebrate. There will be a small ceremony for the Indian team on arrival at the stadium.

The schedule for the Indian team’s T20 World Cup celebrations is as follows:
Team India will arrive in Delhi on Thursday morning at 6:00 am. After this, they will have breakfast with PM Modi at 11:00 am. After meeting PM, Team India will leave for Mumbai where a 2 km victory parade will be held. It will start at 5:00 pm from NPCA to Wankhede Stadium.
