Encouraging news has surfaced for the Mumbai crowd: after a morning meeting with Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi, plans are underway for a grand event to celebrate the squad’s victory. The team will fly to Mumbai for a noteworthy and memorable celebratory parade on Marine Drive later that evening.

Rohit Sharma, the hometown hero from Borivali and erstwhile skipper of the Mumbai Indians, took to Twitter to extend a public invitation to the residents of Mumbai to join in celebrating the team’s triumph. It is anticipated that they will partake in an eloquent and grand parade on an open bus along Marine Drive, famously known as the Queen’s Necklace, and at the Wankhede Stadium from 5pm onwards.

This venue holds special significance for Indian cricket, as it was where India clinched their last 50-over World Cup during a historic night in Mumbai back in 2011. The forthcoming celebrations promise to be a fitting tribute to the team’s hard-fought victory and a moment of pride for the entire nation.
