In the photo shared by Samson on Instagram, the new jersey features a significant update: a second star on top of the BCCI logo, symbolising India's second T20 World Cup win. The jersey proudly displays the word "champions" emblazoned across the front, a bold reminder of their hard-fought victory.

The addition of the second star is a nod to India’s first T20 World Cup triumph under MS Dhoni’s captaincy in 2007, linking past and present in a fabric of triumph and perseverance. After a brief rest at the hotel, the victorious 15-member squad, along with the Rahul Dravid-led support staff, are scheduled to meet Prime Minister Narendra Modi in New Delhi.

The meeting with the Prime Minister is set to be a momentous occasion, celebrating the team's achievement and honouring their dedication and skill on the global stage. After the meeting, they will return to the airport to board a special flight to Mumbai.
