After arriving at the ITC Maurya Hotel, the players were treated to a special breakfast prepared by the hotel. Following this, they proceeded to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his residence. The meeting was a significant moment, celebrating not just the team’s victory but also their resilience in the face of challenges.

The Journey Home: A Tale of Delays and Determination

The team’s journey back home was not without its hurdles. Originally scheduled to travel from Barbados to the USA and then to India via the UAE, their plans were disrupted by Hurricane Beryl. With international flights canceled, the BCCI arranged a chartered flight, ensuring that the team, their families, and the media professionals stranded in Barbados could return home together after a two-day delay.

On to Mumbai: Victory Parade and Celebrations

After meeting the Prime Minister, the team departed for Mumbai, where a grand victory parade was scheduled. The celebrations were set to commence with an open-top bus parade along Marine Drive, culminating in a special function at Wankhede Stadium. This function, organized by the BCCI, would include the presentation of a prize money of 125 crores to the team, honoring their outstanding achievement.
