The T20 World Cup 2024 was a core memory for every Indian. It was a total rollercoaster of emotions we felt throughout. Anyway, these ads connected deeply with Indian emotions, blending the passion for cricket with clever marketing strategies.

Meanwhile, for Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, the final was their chance to bid of farewell to the shortest format as world champions. Both had experienced the joy of lifting a World Cup—Rohit in the maiden T20 World Cup in 2007 and Kohli in the 2011 ODI World Cup. However, after early success, they faced years of near misses in ICC tournaments. At ages 37 and 35 respectively, this tournament was crucial for them to cement their legacies.

Their desperation to win was evident, especially with Rohit’s explosive 92 off 41 balls against Australia in the Super Eight, which set the stage for India’s triumph. As we celebrate India’s victory, we also honor these legends whose careers have shaped Indian cricket.
