India triumphed over the formidable South Africans by seven runs in the T20 World Cup 2024 final in Barbados, ending a decade of near-misses in ICC tournaments. One of the most unforgettable moments for Indian fans was Rohit Sharma’s confident strut to collect the trophy at the presentation ceremony.

“The Worldwide Sensation! WOOOOO!” Flair captioned his post, drawing a parallel between his wrestling theatrics and Rohit’s celebratory walk.

This isn’t the first time the WWE legend has acknowledged Rohit’s swagger. On June 30, just a day after the final, Flair posted a video of Rohit heading to the stage to receive the trophy, captioning it, “.@ImRo45 Taking A Page Out Of My Playbook! WOOOOO!” Flair’s enthusiastic endorsement added a touch of entertainment to the cricketing triumph.

Post their victory, the Indian team found themselves stranded in Barbados due to Cyclone Beryl, which led to the closure of the local airport for safety reasons. With weather conditions improving, the team is now set to depart today at 6 pm Barbados time, arriving in New Delhi at 7:45 pm local time on Wednesday, July 3.

Upon arrival, the victorious squad is expected to meet with Prime Minister Narendra Modi, a significant event likely contributing to their scheduled landing in the capital.
