The cricketing world was treated to an unforgettable and joyous moment as India clinched the T20 World Cup trophy in Barbados on June 29. Adding a touch of entertainment to the victory celebration, captain Rohit Sharma imitated the iconic strut of wrestling legend Ric Flair, with the latter approving the move himself.

The Indian cricket team is the World T20 Champions. They eliminated their decade-long ICC trophy drought by beating South Africa in a thrilling finale in Barbados on Saturday.

With SA needing 31 off 30 deliveries, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh, and Hardik Pandya bowled tight spells to leave the Proteas 7 runs short of the 177 runs chase.

The scenes at Barbados were jubilant and emotional as India not only ended its trophy drought but also won a nearly lost contest. Meanwhile, Indian captain Rohit Sharma added extra flair to the winning celebrations while collecting the trophy.
