In his heartfelt post, Bumrah said that he has been “living a dream” for the past few days. Bumrah shared a 42-second clip on his social media, showcasing the memorable moments from the grand welcome he received at the Delhi airport to the stupendous crowd celebrating India’s 2024 T20 World Cup during the victory parade.

The clip also included some amazing moments from Team India’s celebration at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The most heartwarming part of this viral post is that Bumrah used modern-era legend Virat Kohli’s voice in the background during the facilitation ceremony.

It was certainly a great way for Bumrah to show his admiration for Kohli and at the same time express his emotions for receiving so much love from the fans. During his speech at the Wankhede Stadium, Kohli called Bumrah a “once in a generation player.”

The right-handed batsman added: “What I would like everyone to do is applaud a guy who brought us back to the games time and again. He was phenomenal. He is a once-in-a-generation bowler. I am very happy that he is playing for us.” These words are played in the background of Bumrah’s video.

Sharing the heartwarming clip on X, Bumrah wrote in the caption, “I’m so grateful for the last few days. I’ve been living a dream and it’s filled me with happiness and gratitude.🇮🇳💙.”

Notably, Bumrah played a key role in India’s victory at the 2024 T20 World Cup, taking 15 wickets to help the team win its second T20 World Cup title and first in 17 years. Bumrah was named Player of the Tournament for his stellar performance at the 2024 T20 World Cup in the USA and West Indies.

Bumrah also received a grand welcome upon arriving in his hometown Ahmedabad. He also handed over the 2024 T20 World Cup winners medal and Player of the Tournament award to his mother Daljit and shared the post on Instagram.

Notably, Bumrah became the second Indian to win the prestigious Player of the Tournament award after Kohli, who achieved this honour twice in consecutive editions in 2014 and 2016. Kohli retired from T20I cricket after winning the 2024 T20 World Cup on June 29.

Apart from Kohli, Jadeja and Rohit Sharma also announced their retirement from T20I after the 2024 T20 World Cup triumph in Barbados. They will now play only ODI and Test cricket for Team India. All of them will be seen in action in the ODI series on the tour of Sri Lanka in August 2024.
