Rohit And Co Head to Mumbai After Meeting PM Modi

The Indian cricket team, led by Roht Sharma, met Prime Minister Narendra Modi at his residence in Lok Kalyan Marg in New Delhi for breakfast on Thursday. PM Modi congratulated the T20 World Cup-winning team during the hour-long meeting. After meeting PM, They are now headed to airport.

In a video, Prime Minister Narendra Modi and the Indian cricket team players were seen sharing a laugh as they were reminiscing the World Cup campaign. Head coach Rahul Dravid was also speaking as the players sat together with the Prime Minister. PM Modi was smiling all through the video while seemingly enjoying the anectodes from the players. Jasprit Bumrah, Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya also spoke during the meeting. BCCI secretary Jay Shah and president Roger Binny attended the breakfast meeting with the Indian cricket team.

The Men in Blue donned a customised India jersey with 'Champions' written on it as they left to meet PM Modi. It was reported that PM Modi hosted the players for a special breakfast during which he listened to the experiences of the World Cup heroes in the USA and the Caribbean. India defeated South Africa in the final on Saturday at the Kensington Oval in Barbados to win their second T20 World Cup crown.

The Indian team left the Prime Minister's residence and headed back to the New Delhi airport, from where they will head to Mumbai for an open-top bus parade.

India's T20 World Cup heroes, the members of the support staff and around 20-odd members of the media arrived at the New Delhi airport in a special charter plane arranged by the Indian cricket board (BCCI). 

Thousands of fans lined-up outside the Terminal 3 of the Indira Gandhi International Airport in New Delhi, braving early morning rain to catch a glimpse of the returning players. The Indian stars did not disappoint as they greeted and waved at fans who were cheering for the big-ticket players. Rohit Sharma walked out of the airport with the T20 World Cup trophy in his hand. He held it aloft in what has become a viral pose and made sure the scores of fans caught a glimpse of the coveted trophy.

Rohit Sharma led the celebration on Thursday too. The India captain danced to dhol beats outside the team hotel. Suryakumar Yadav, who took that catch in the T20 World Cup final, also flaunted his Bhangra skills along with Rishabh Pant. Hardik Pandya, the vice-captain and the last-over hero, returned home with a tinge of Caribbean flavour as he wore a white hat while posing to the shutterbugs at the airport.
