A Clash Against Bangladesh Ravindra Jadeja beats KL Rahul to win 'Fielder of the Match'

For his spectacular diving catch at backward point against Bangladesh in the ICC World Cup, the star all-rounder of team India Ravindra Jadeja won the fielder of the match award by fielding coach T Dilip, beating wicketkeeper-batter KL Rahul and Kuldeep Yadav. In an entertaining behind-the-scenes video posted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India, Team India can be seen having fun in the dressing room as the fielding coach announces the medal winner.
The teammates surrounded Jadeja. Rahul, who won the award in the previous match, did the honours and handed the medal over to Jadeja, who placed it around the neck of India's fielding coach.
In the posted video, Dilip Singh said, "We have played enough. We all know that winning isn't built into runs or wickets. I think it is also built on marvelous catches and tremendous diving, and today was a great example of that. Just not the way we save, but the numbers saved. Two game-changing catches by KL and Jadeja We, as a team, saved 13 runs today. That was fantastic. So let's roll the carpet for today's evening star. On the field today, one person was like a lion. Commanding on the field, outstanding effort with the direct hit, saving, and fantastic top catch—Jadeja.”
