IND vs NED: India’s best fielder medal continues to catch headlines. The award which has been an out-of-the-box thing, not only highlights players’ contributions on the field but is also one of the most awaited things after an India game. There have been several creative ways that India’s fielding coach T Dilip has implemented to reveal the winners. In the latest medal ceremony after the clash against the Netherlands, the Chinnaswamy groundsmen revealed India’s best fielder for the clash.
T Dilip implemented another new way of naming the medal winner. Unlike in the previous times when contenders for the medal are announced inside the dressing room and then the players go out to know the winner, this time the contenders and winners – all were named on the ground. Dilip used the umpire’s walkie-talkie to announce the contenders before the groundsmen revealed the medal winner.

Heartwarming & innovative from Team India in this edition of the Best Fielder award,” BCCI wrote in the caption to the video shared.
