For his stupendous all-round performance, he was named the ‘Player of the Match’.
- In the final of the tournament, a rain-affected game against Sri Lanka, he had recorded figures of 2/23 in 6 overs, at an economy rate of just 3.83. India had chased down the paltry target of 102 runs with great ease to lift the title.
