Passengers at the Dubai International airport were in for a midnight surprise on Tuesday. The Indian heroes, who won the Twenty20 World Cup on Monday, were all there walking towards the transit lounge. Arriving by the Emirates flight EK 762 from Johannesburg, they were in transit in Dubai on their way to Mumbai. Stunned by the sight of their heroes, many passengers left the exit gates and rushed to greet them. Despite looking tired
and sleepy after the eight-hour flight from Johannesburg, skipper
Mahendra Singh Dhoni acknowledged their cheers. Yuvraj Singh, the
author of six sixes in one over, was clapped all the way down the
elevator as he proceeded towards the Emirates Business class lounge. A mini chaos by some excited passengers, who tried to push their way into the lounge, was thwarted in time by the authorities.
