Prime Minister David Cameron welcomed team members including captain Paul Collingwood and player-of-the-tournament Kevin Pietersen to Downing Street.
England won the ICC World Twenty20 for the first time earlier this month after beating Australia in the final in Barbados.
The PM said:
It really was a fantastic result and you made the whole country incredibly proud. As a cricket fan myself, you always remember where you are for the great England victories and everyone will remember what you all achieved in the Twenty20.
He added that although it was a team victory, he especially wanted to praise Mr Collingwood, Mr Pietersen and Craig Kieswetter for their “inspirational” performances during the tournament.
