T20 World Cup 2024: Delhi Police took to social media to mark India’s victory against Australia in yesterday's ICC Men's T20 World Cup match at the Daren Sammy Cricket Ground in Gros Islet, St Lucia.

In a post on X, the Delhi Police wrote, “This Just In: In a 'hits-and-runs' incident in the Caribbean, 11 Indian men have 'stolen' over a billion hearts. Initial investigation points out the revenge of 19/11 as the motive.” This post draws attention to the ODI World Cup match on November 19, 2023, where Australia won against India by six wickets at the Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Australia needed 29 runs from six balls to chase India's magnanimous target of 206 but eventually lost to India by 24 runs. With this win, India entered the semi-final and will play England on June 27 at the Providence Stadium in Guyana.
