Rohit led Team India lift the T20 World Cup trophy after defeating South Africa in a thrilling finale in Barbados last week. The Indian Cricket team took Mumbai by storm during their victory parade from Marine Drive to Wankhede Stadium on Thursday. The open-bus show, which was to begin at 5:00 PM, started late, but once it was underway, lakhs turned up in numbers to celebrate the homecoming of the newly-crowned world champions.

Rohit also shared a picture of himself lying down at the Kensington Oval to mark the moment if victory. “This picture epitomises how I’m feeling right now. So many words but can’t find the right ones to express what yesterday meant to me but I will, and I will share them, but right now I’m basking in a dream come true for a billion of us,” Rohit wrote.

Meanwhile, fans are eagerly awaiting the release of Deadpool & Wolverine. Directed by Shawn Levy, the Marvel Studios’ project will release in India on July 26 in English, Hindi, Tamil and Telugu. It also stars Emma Corrin, Morena Baccarin, Brianna Hildebrand, Jennifer Garner, Leslie Uggams, Karan Soni and Matthew Macfadyen.
