The Indian cricket team went on an open bus victory parade at the Marine Drive in Mumbai before making their way to the Wankhede Stadium, where they were honoured by the BCCI in front of thousands of fans.

Just a day later, Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, and Yashasvi Jaiswal were felicitated by the Chief Minister of Maharashtra, Eknath Shinde.

The four cricketers are slated to get felicitated at the Maharashtra Vidhan Bhavan Complex later today, according to the report from The Week.

Moreover, Rohit Sharma announced his retirement from the T20I format in the aftermath of the T20 World Cup triumph in the Caribbean. In the upcoming five-match T20I series against Zimbabwe at the Harare Sports Club, he is going to be replaced in the captaincy role by Shubman Gill.
