Groundsmen announce India's best fielder award

Who's the winner?

India have reached the semi-finals of the World Cup without dropping a game, but perhaps more than the emphatic wins, what the players are relishing is getting the best fielder medal, a dressing-room award given by their fielding coach, T Dilip. He has announced the winners in a creative fashion and for India's final league game, against Netherlands in Bengaluru, he roped in some very important people - Chinnaswamy's groundsmen held up signs to declare Suryakumar Yadav as the winner.
At Eden Gardens after the 243-run victory over South Africa, the four contenders for the medal were asked to stand in a circle by the sight screen and a camera buggy panned on each player before freezing on the eventual winner, captain Rohit Sharma. Below are the other the medal-winning announcements.
In Mumbai, after a massive win over Sri Lanka, local boy and World Cup winner Sachin Tendulkar announced the medal winner - Shreyas Iyer.
In Lucknow after India's 100-run win over England, Dilip plunged the whole stadium into darkness before lighting up the winner's name - KL Rahul.
In Dharamsala, after they beat New Zealand, he got the Spidercam to deliver the medal to Iyer.
In Pune, after India's seven-wicket win over Bangladesh, he announced Ravindra Jadeja's win via the giant screen on the ground.
