With former Indian cricketer Anshuman Gaekwad battling cancer, appeals have reportedly made to the BCCI to fund his medical expenses.

The team has showcased exceptional talent, determination, and sportsmanship throughout the tournament. Congratulations to all the players, coaches, and support staff for this outstanding achievement!"
