Tens of thousands of fans lined the streets of Marine Drive, eager to catch a glimpse of their cricket heroes. This outpouring of support, however, led to overcrowding and a few cases of discomfort.

Additional Injuries and Discharges

One fan received treatment at St. George’s Hospital near Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Terminus before being released. Another person was treated at a private hospital in South Mumbai and discharged after treatment.
