Even if just for a day, Birmingham may have been mistaken to be part of India!
Seen here are Shikhar Dhawan with the Golden Bat, MS Dhoni with the Champions Trophy title and Ravindra Jadeja with the Golden Ball, posing after defeating hosts England.
The sheer magnitude of the win is symbolic in this image as the three players display their awards and trophies with pride that may not be visible here but can surely be sensed.
These three players - joined by Virat Kohli and Bhuvneshwar Kumar - also made it to the ICC Team of the Tournament, once again showing the dominance that Team Indian enjoyed in Champions Trophy 2013.
Such was the frenzy after winning the Champions Trophy crown that the players partied all night with champagne flowing as freely as moves from Gangnam style dance number.
