India finished as runners-up in the World Cup, but there was still a sense of unity within the team as they gathered to award the best fielder medal. The medal was presented by fielding coach T Dilip, and the recipients were announced in creative ways throughout the tournament.
In Mumbai, Sachin Tendulkar announced Shreyas Iyer as the 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, including groundsmen holding up signs and the use of Spidercam.
The final recipient of the medal was Virat Kohli, who won it after his outstanding performance in the semi-final match against New Zealand. Ravindra Jadeja had been declared the winner through a dressing-room TV announcement and Suryakumar Yadav had presented him with a touch of poetry. The announcements for other recipients were made using various creative methods such as groundsmen holding up signs and using Spidercam.
