India's star all-rounder Hardik Pandya was seen posing with the prestigious T20 World Cup trophy in Barbados, marking a defining moment in his career. 

Pandya played a crucial role in securing the trophy for India, snatching victory from South Africa in the final over of the T20 World Cup 2024 at Kensington Oval.

Pandya's performance in the last over was pivotal, ensuring India's first ICC title in 11 years. The official BCCI account on X shared pictures of the vice-captain with a bright smile, kissing the trophy and showcasing his new look.

In the historic final over, South Africa needed 16 runs, but Pandya dismissed the dangerous David Miller with a catch from Suryakumar Yadav, turning the tide in India's favor and securing a seven-run victory.

Due to a hurricane in Barbados, Team India's departure has been delayed. They are expected to leave for India on Wednesday and arrive in New Delhi early Thursday morning.
