It was a thriller of a game but take nothing away from the Lasith Malinga’s grit to bowl that slower yorker. One could say that it was Mumbai Indians’ entire season in a nutshell. Taking risks, being brave and then performing at the main stage. The winner of the Indian Premier League 2019, partied late into the night after their victory.
The team along with the staff and owners came back to their home city, Mumbai. As expected, the celebrations were carried all the way for the home fans as well. The team and owners partied and paraded in an open-bus from Antilla (residence of the owners) to The Trident (team hotel).
Here are pictures and videos of the joyous occasion for the MI Paltan.
Home of the champions
The champions were welcomed home by a sea of blue. The fans, dhol, gold and blue, everything created a surreal atmosphere on the streets of Mumbai.
The homeboys went old school with the open-bus parade. While most would think of a luxurious bus, the team found their happy selves on top of a BEST bus. The double-decker open bus is iconic in the city and what better than that to choose for your parade. The bus was covered in blue with “Champions 2019” and the team logo covered all over it! The Mumbai Indians team in their blue relaxed kit looked like the perfect icing on the cake, with the shiny trophy as the cherry! Of course.
The two big guns were also spotted with the trophy during the parade with beaming smiles. We could literally see the lights shine of their wide smiles. Mahela Jayawardene also posted a video of the parade and the fans celebrating on his Instagram profile.
Congratulations to Mumbai Indians for their stellar performance and triumph in the Indian Premier League 2019.
