Meanwhile, once everything was wrapped up, India captain Rohit Sharma returned home. Notably, another surprise was waiting for him there.

They all donned a customised t-shirt featuring Rohit’s picture with the T20 World Cup title as well.

Once the veteran Indian opener came out of his car, all of his friends saluted him and went on to imitate his trophy-lifting gesture as well. After that, they all came running towards Rohit and lifted him on their shoulders as well. They also felicitated him with a garland. Meanwhile, young Indian batter Tilak Varma was also seen there and enjoyed every bit of the celebration.
