The open-top bus parade from Nariman Point to Wankhede Stadium was a picturesque journey for the Indian team, with thousands of fans stationed along the sides of Marine Drive. Throughout the parade, players were seen lifting the coveted trophy high in the air and appreciating the support of their fans. The love of the fans was clearly visible when some of them climbed trees and cheered for the team as the bus went past them. The victory parade was followed by a felicitation by the BCCI at the iconic Wankhede Stadium, attended by a full-packed crowd.

Following the Men in Blue’s victory parade, many women cricketers reacted to the event. Australian cricketer Amanda Wellington acknowledged the craze of the victory parade through a tweet.

Fellow Indian women cricketers also reacted, with Indian spinner Shreyanka Patil tweeting about her fortune to represent the nation and her excitement for the upcoming Women’s T20 World Cup.
