The Mumbai Indians team was greeted by their fans during an open top-bus ride on Monday and the players were given a rapturous reception to celebrate their win over Chennai Super Kings.

The victory parade started from Antilia - the residence of the Ambanis and came to an end at the team hotel in Nariman Point.

Captain Rohit Sharma waved at the fans along with Jasprit Bumrah, Yuvraj Singh, coach Mahela Jayawardene. Team owner Nita Ambani, was there with the team throughout the ride.

The bus crawled through the thousands of flag-waving fans as crowds built up around Peddar Road and Chowpatty. Puneri dholas accompanied the parade.
