Shah Congratulates Team India on T-20 World Cup Win

Shah released a video congratulating Team India on their T-20 World Cup victory. He said,

“I mentioned in Rajkot that in June 2024, we will win hearts along with the cup. We will also wave the Indian flag, and our captain hoisted the flag. The last five overs played a significant role in this victory. I want to thank Suryakumar Yadav, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh, and Hardik Pandya for their contributions. After this victory, the next stage is the WTC final and the Champions Trophy. I am confident that under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy, we will become champions in both tournaments.”
