Maharashtra Chief Minister Eknath Shinde on Friday announced a cash reward of Rs 11 crore for the Indian cricket team which won the T20 World Cup.

The announcement was made in the central hall of the Vidhan Bhavan (state legislature complex) here where four Mumbai players from the team -- captain Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shivam Dubey -- were felicitated.

CM Shinde in his speech expressed his delight over the team's victory against arch-rivals Pakistan in the World Cup. He specifically praised Suryakumar Yadav's remarkable catch in the final match against South Africa.

Shinde also noted the contribution of support team members Paras Mhambre and Arun Kanade by felicitating them. The chief minister also commended Mumbai Police for their effective crowd management during the team's victory parade in south Mumbai on Thursday.

During the presentation ceremony at the Wankhede Stadium on Thursday, the 37-year-old said it's a massive relief to bring the trophy back home after a massive wait of 13 years.

"Bringing the World Cup to this country means the world to us. This is for the people who support and watch the game, and, along with all of us, for the last 11 years, they're the ones who've been wanting this trophy to come back. Finally it's here, and I'm very happy and relieved."

The Nagpur-born cricketer retired from T20I cricket as the leading run-getter with 4231 runs in 159 matches.
