'You faced so many things these past few months yet you stayed calm and focused. And today bhaiya you got the result of your hard-work, honesty and sincerity. There’s so much more i feel and want to say but words will fall short. You are a champion and you are rare ♥️💪🏼"

Hardik Pandya and the Indian contingent reached Mumbai after a journey from hurricane-hit Barbados. Upon their arrival in India, they first landed in New Delhi, where they met Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi. 

Then, immediately after, they took a flight to Mumbai, where they were once again greeted by lakhs of people as they went on a victory bus parade to Wankhede Stadium. There, more celebrations broke as India celebrated the homecoming of the World Champions, and BCCI awarded them with INR 125 crore prize money.

Pandya played a crucial role in India's T20 WC 2024 campaign. He bowled the final over of the finale against South Africa, successfully defending 16 runs, helping India clinch the crucial victory and bring home the coveted trophy.
