Rahul's wicket-keeping in the game was exceptional. He displayed his brilliance by preventing several boundaries on the leg side and confidently managing deliveries that rose sharply from the pacers.


The privilege of awarding him the medal was bestowed upon Shreyas Iyer, the best fielder in the previous game.
