India ended their impressive run in the World Cup with a second place finish. Despite this, 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 the semi-final match against New Zealand, Dilip declared Ravindra Jadeja as the winner through the dressing-room TV. Suryakumar Yadav, who won the previous year, presented the medal with a touch of poetry. Other medal recipients were announced in various creative manners such as groundsmen holding up signs and using Spidercam to announce them in different locations like Mumbai where Sachin Tendulkar announced Shreyas Iyer after India defeated Sri Lanka and Lucknow where winner was illuminated in a dark stadium after their win over England. The giant screen on ground, Spidercam and even local field crew were used to announce recipients of this prestigious award.
