After yesterday’s win, India ended their 20-year-old losing streak against New Zealand in an ICC event.
After India clinches a remarkable four-wicket win against New Zealand, it’s time to announce the winner of the best fielder award happening within the Indian team.
Last time the medal went to Ravindra Jadeja for his stunning flying catch at the India vs Bangladesh clash on 19th October. Fielding coach T. Dilip found a unique way to present the award not verbally but displaying Jadeja’s epic flying catch on the big screen.
This time as well, T. Dilip finds another unique way to announce the winner. Before announcing the winner, the fielding coach requests all the players to come outside the dressing room as the surprise was waiting over there.
The moment the boys went outside with sheer excitedness , they saw the name along with the photo of the winner hung on the spidey cam coming towards them.
The winner was none other than Shreyas Iyer for his brilliant catch of Devon Conway. After the catch, Iyer gestured for the best fielding medal to the fielding coach as well.
Continuing the tradition, Jadeja also did the honours by passing the medal to Iyer. Prior to Iyer and Jadeja, Virat Kohli, Shardul Thakur and KL Rahul were awarded with the best fielder medal.
Last time we revealed our “Best fielder winner” on the giant screen
Our “Spidey sense” says this time we’ve taken it to new “heights”
