With this win, India secured its second T20 World Cup title after a 17-year gap. The victory brought immense pride to the nation, but Kohli’s retirement added an emotional layer to the celebrations.

As India basks in the glory of this historic win, the nation also bids farewell to one of its greatest cricket legends. Virat Kohli’s retirement marks the end of an era in T20 cricket, but the legacy he leaves behind will inspire future generations. Congratulations Team India!
