Earlier in the day, the victorious team had a breakfast meeting with Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi. They arrived in Mumbai around 5 pm after flying in from Barbados earlier that morning.

The stadium reverberated with chants of "Sachin… Sachin," "Mumbaicha Raja, Rohit Sharma!" and "India… India," underscoring the fervent support of Indian cricket enthusiasts.
