Following the match, captain Rohit, Virat Kohli, and Ravindra Jadeja declared their retirements from T20 international cricket. Before the tournament even began, Dravid had said that come what may, he would be leaving his position as team head coach. Throughout his stellar playing career, he guided India to the World Test Championship and World Cup finals in 2023. It meant that Dravid, whether it was for the T20 or ODI format, bowed out with his first World Cup title.

After India won the championship, there were tearful scenes in Barbados with both sets of players breaking down in tears. The nation as a whole was ecstatic about the historic victory. The Indian squad returned home after winning. In New Delhi, the esteemed Prime Minister Modi congratulated Team India and enjoyed breakfast with them.
