Mumbai: Thunderous celebrations erupted to welcome the U-19 World Cup winning Indian team which landed here on Tuesday after a successful campaign in Australia.
The team under skipper Unmukt Chand beat hosts Australia in the final on Sunday to lift the coveted trophy for the third time, an achievement much appreciated by fans gathered outside the airport to greet the young stalwarts. Chand, who slammed a match-winning unbeaten century in the summit clash, was the first to come out of the Shivaji Chhatrapati International airport terminal, holding aloft the trophy.
Nasik Dhol and bhangra music had been arranged and the players seemed to soak in all of it with delight. They also showed the trophy to the fans.
