India’s impressive run in the World Cup ended with a second place finish. However, there was still a sense of unity within the team as they gathered for one last occasion to award the best fielder medal, presented by fielding coach T Dilip. The winners had been announced in creative ways throughout the tournament, and Virat Kohli was the recipient of the final medal.
Fielding coach T Dilip took charge of announcing the recipients of other medals. In Mumbai, Sachin Tendulkar announced Shreyas Iyer as the medal winner after India defeated Sri Lanka. In Lucknow after their win over England, the winner was illuminated in the dark stadium. In other locations, various methods were used to announce the medal recipients, such as groundsmen holding up signs and even local field crew being utilized.
One of these creative methods was in New Zealand during their semi-final match against New Zealand when Ravindra Jadeja was declared as the winner through dressing room TV and Suryakumar Yadav presented him with a touch of poetry. Additionally, groundsmen held up signs and Spidercam were used to announce other recipients.
Overall, India’s team came together to celebrate their successes and award their fellow teammates for their outstanding performances throughout the tournament.
