Mumbai braces for Team India’s victory parade, Excitement turn into ‘stampede-like’ situation

With thousands of fans stomping their way around the Wankhede Stadium, it looks like we are in for long hours for the Team India victory parade.

Mumbai is a sea of blue today as the city gears up for a grand victory parade celebrating the Indian cricket team’s triumph in the T20 World Cup 2024. The excitement is palpable, with large crowds gathering at Marine Drive and along the parade route stretching to the Wankhede Stadium.

However, amidst the celebratory fervor, concerns are simmering about a possible stampede situation near the Wankhede Stadium, the culmination point of the open-bus parade.

Insane crowd near Wankhede Stadium!

The sheer number of fans expected to throng the streets of Mumbai poses a significant challenge for authorities. News reports indicate heavy police deployment to manage the crowds, but the enthusiasm of cricket-crazy Mumbaikars, evident even before the team’s arrival, raises concerns about crowd control.

While the festive atmosphere is undeniable, authorities must prioritize the safety of fans. Implementing stricter crowd control measures, especially near the Wankhede Stadium, is crucial to prevent a stampede situation.
