Morning Everybody: Rohit Sharma wakes up with T20 World Cup trophy beside him; picture goes viral

On Sunday, June 30, Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, shared a candid picture of waking up with the T20 World Cup trophy beside him on his official Instagram account. The 37-year-old, who led the Indian cricket team to a T20 World Cup 2024 title triumph, has already announced his retirement from the T20I format after the conclusion of the tournament.

Notably, the Indian cricket team, led by Rohit Sharma, won the T20 World Cup trophy for the second time after defeating South Africa by seven runs in a last over thriller at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. They clinched the title after winning eight matches out of nine in the T20 World Cup 2024, becoming the first-ever undefeated team to achieve this monumental feat.

After playing a key role in helping Team India win the T20 World Cup 2024 with his batting and captaincy exploits, Rohit Sharma celebrated success in style with his teammates at the Kensington Oval. The next morning in Bridgetown, Barbados, was just as sweet for the Indian captain, taking to Instagram to post a picture of himself lying in bed in his hotel room, waking up with the T20 World Cup trophy beside him.

Moreover, Rohit Sharma finished his T20I career on a high with a T20 World Cup title triumph, but his time in international cricket is far from over. He is still the captain of the Indian Test and ODI teams, who are going to be playing a lot of cricket in the next year or so, heading into the ICC Champions Trophy 2025 and the World Test Championship Final 2025.

The Nagpur-born cricketer could play next for India during the upcoming three-match ODI series in Sri Lanka, which will begin from August 2 onwards.
