Amid this, one could see Nita Ambani, clapping and cheering with tears in her eyes. Emotionally charged, she personally connected the win by stating that all these cricketing legends were part of her Mumbai Indians family. She narrated the last moments of WC, saying that the collective anxiety and ultimate jubilation of this nation was just incredible as India wrested victory from the jaws of defeat in that nail-biting last over.

Mukesh Ambani, chairman and managing director, Reliance Industries Limited, showed pride as he congratulated the cricketers for the rare achievement in the World Cup, elating it to India’s win in 2011. He felt a heartbeat in every nook and corner of the country with that.


Other guests included some of his Mumbai Indians teammates and other top Indian cricketersโ€” Ishan Kishan, Shreyas Iyer, Krunal Pandya, KL Rahul to name a fewโ€”and some legends of the game, like Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Star pacer Jasprit Bumrah was travelling and so couldn’t make it to the celebration.

The youngest son of Mukesh and Nita Ambani, Anant Ambani, is going to wed Radhika Merchant, daughter of industrialists Viren and Shaila Merchant, at the Jio World Convention Centre in Mumbai.
