In a rare and heartfelt social media post, T20 World Cup 2007 winning captain MS Dhoni celebrated India’s T20 World Cup 2024 triumph, expressing his deep gratitude to Rohit Sharma and the Indian team. India clinched their second T20 World Cup title by defeating South Africa by seven runs in a thrilling final at Kensington Oval, Barbados. This victory marked a significant milestone for Indian cricket, ending an 11-year drought for an ICC trophy.

MS Dhoni, who seldom posts on his social media handles, took to Instagram to share a photo of the victorious Indian team. In his post, he wrote, “WORLD CUP CHAMPIONS 2024. My heart rate was up, well done on being calm, having the self-belief, and doing what you guys did. From all the Indians back home and everywhere in the world, a big thank you for bringing the World Cup home. CONGRATULATIONS. Arreeee thanks for the priceless birthday gift.” The heartfelt message from Dhoni, who led India to their first T20 World Cup win in 2007 and the 2011 ODI World Cup.

Dhoni’s acknowledgment of the team’s efforts and his gratitude for what he called an early “priceless” birthday gift underscored the emotional significance of this victory for both the players and fans. The victory in Barbados was not just a win on the field but a moment of immense national pride and joy, a reminder of the days when Dhoni himself led the team to glory.
