    The left-handed batsman scored an unbeaten 33 off 25 balls, which included two boundaries and sixes each, led India to post a decent target of 130 from 20 overs. With the ball, the spinner took 2/24 from his four overs.

    I did well throughout the tournament and I was very positive. It was quite difficult to rotate the strike, so I and Virat (Kohli) just tried to build a good partnership. I was enjoying bowling on this wicket. My skipper always backs me when I bowl,” said Jadeja at the presentation ceremony.

    India beat England by five runs in the final here at Edgbaston after scoring 129/7 in their 20 overs after rain delayed the start of the match.

    India were also the joint winners, with Sri Lanka, of the 2002 Champions Trophy.
