WATCH : Rohit Sharma consoles and embraces an emotional Hardik Pandya after India’s World Cup triumph


With 16 runs needed off the final over, Indian captain Rohit Sharma handed the ball to his reliable ally, Hardik Pandya. The Mumbai Indians’ all-rounder displayed his best form, crucially dismissing the well-set David Miller.

What followed was a masterful over where the 31-year-old claimed the wickets of Kagiso Rabada and, importantly, restricted Anrich Nortje’s dead rubber single, sparking jubilation among the Men in Blue as they clinched their second T20 World Cup.

Amid the uproar of jubilant Indian fans in a packed Barbados stadium, Pandya’s emotions ran high. Having shouldered the immense pressure of the final over, he was overcome with emotion, tears streaming down his face as teammates rushed out of the dugout in pure elation.

Surrounded by waving Indian flags and the echoes of patriotic songs, Pandya’s emotional release was evident. As he joined his teammates in celebration, an emotional Rohit Sharma embraced him tightly, a moment destined to be etched in the annals of Indian cricket and the storied history of the Mumbai Indians.

This raw display of emotion resonated deeply with fans, as the Twitterverse erupted with heartfelt tributes, commemorating this unforgettable moment.
