Celebrations flooded the streets with waving national flags and crackling firecrackers, marking India’s second T20 World Cup triumph and their first title in 13 years.

Led by captain Rohit Sharma’s decision to bat first after winning the toss, India posted a competitive total of 176-7, anchored by Virat Kohli’s crucial half-century, which he later revealed to be his final T20 international appearance. South Africa, in pursuit of the target, initially seemed poised to chase it down but stumbled in the closing stages, ultimately falling short of the mark.

Sharma’s retirement announcement from T20 internationals lent a poignant moment to the celebrations. Cricket holds a special place in India, deeply ingrained in the hearts of 1.4 billion people with its fervent fanbase and profound cultural significance.

The triumph not only solidified India’s standing in global cricket but also ignited scenes of unity and pride across the nation, highlighting the sport’s unparalleled popularity in India’s sporting landscape.
