Mumbai Indians captain Rohit Sharma had already given an indication about the gala celebration that they were going to have when he said ‘the party has just begun' after winning the IPL-8 in Kolkata on Sunday. 

True to the skipper's words, it was mayhem till the wee hours of Monday, http://www.sagebook.us/doku.php?id=kids_on_the_iphone_ipad_o_mac_too_long as no Mumbai Indians player was allowed to skip the revelry. 

Mumbai team owner Nita Ambani couldn't be present through the length of the celebration as she flew back early on Monday to prepare for the team's return to Mumbai.

According to the plans, after the customary celebrations at the Wankhede Stadium, where the trophy was on display with all players present, they attended a dinner at the owner's house. 

Speaking to Mail Today, a member of the MI management said it would be a simple dinner at Ambani's place. 

"Just like in 2013, we will be having a party at Ambani's place before the players disperse. The foreigners will be leaving on Monday night itself and the Indians will go back to their homes on Tuesday," he said.

Coming back to the after-party, it all started with the team song being sung as the players drenched each other with champagne inside the dressing room. 

The party got wilder when the players reached the team hotel. The music wasn't restricted to just Bollywood numbers, as international chart-toppers were also played. 

One of the Mumbai players said the feeling of winning a second title after 2013 took some time to sink in. 

"It was such a special feeling. We were all jumping around, maybe even without realising that we had achieved the dream that we have been chasing since April 8 when we played Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens. We have worked very hard and it feels very special when the end result is so sweet," he said. 

"But slowly, the achievement sunk in and honestly, sometimes you don't need speeches to understand the relevance of an achievement. We just hugged and took ‘selfies' with the trophy. Not to forget how we signed autographs for each other and it was like madness. And then after we went to the hotel, it was like just letting go."
