India’s impressive run in the World Cup came to an end 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.
After India’s semi-final match against New Zealand, Dilip declared Ravindra Jadeja as the winner through the dressing-room TV. Suryakumar Yadav, who won the medal in 2019, presented it to him with a touch of poetry. Other recipients were announced in various creative manners such as groundsmen holding up signs and using Spidercam to capture their reactions.
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 a dark stadium. In other locations, giant screens on fields and local field crews were used to announce medal recipients.
Throughout this tournament, it was clear that creativity and innovation were key factors in presenting these awards. These efforts not only added some excitement to these moments but also brought some joy to fans who watched from home or live at venues around the world.
In conclusion, while India may not have won this tournament, they can take pride in their impressive play and their ability to come together as a team even after such a close call. And Virat Kohli can be proud of his performance on the field and his award-winning performance throughout this tournament.
Overall it was an exciting tournament full of twists and turns that kept everyone on edge until the very end. The final match between Australia and England was closely contested until Australia clinched victory with just two runs needed off two deliveries from Ben Stokes’ over.
