In a recent post that is going viral,  Ibrahim Shiuree, the CEO and Managing Director of MMPRC, and Ahmed Nazeer, Secretary General of MATI, stated that they look forward to hosting the team, which returned to India on Thursday last week

"We would be honoured to host you and ensure that your stay is filled with memorable moments, relaxation, and bespoke experiences," Shiuree and Nazeer said in in the joint statement. 

After Team India returned to home soil, they received a grand welcome at the Delhi Airport after that they visited Narendra Modi's residence for a 'special breakfast'. Then Rohit Sharma and Co. travelled to Mumbai for the open bus 'Victory Parade' from Marine Drive to Wankhede Stadium. 

"We eagerly await the opportunity to host them, offering the perfect setting for them to create lasting memories of their victory celebration," Shiuree added.

In January 2024, the political relations between India and Maldives became strained due to derogatory remarks by Maldivian cabinet ministers and concerns over racism, targeted towards Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi as well as India. 

Amid this Political tension between the two countries, Maldives Tourism's invitation to the Indian cricket team can be taken as a positive note. 

Currently, the team is on a break and will next play against Sri Lanka in a six-match limited-overs series that will start on July 27. The series will have three ODIs and as many T20 Internationals.
