India’s tradition of naming the best fielder after every game and presenting an award for the same in innovative, often grand manners in the 2023 World Cup has been loved by one and all, especially among the Indian cricket community.

The award is generally presented to motivate players to perform their best in the upcoming matches.

The fielding coach of India, T Dilip, started the tradition of announcing the best fielder after every game in a ceremony in the dressing room from India’s first match at the 2023 World Cup against Australia in Chennai.

After India’s mammoth 302-run success against Sri Lanka at the Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai, legendary batter Sachin Tendulkar made a surprise appearance to announce Shreyas Iyer as the best fielder of the day. 

Before revealing Iyer's name, Team India invited Sachin Tendulkar to make the announcement. 

The legendary cricketer  said that the "Fielder of the Match" award reminds him of the 2003 World Cup when they used to sign a chart with the words "I can, we can."

Tendulkar also praised Rohit Sharma's side and said that he simply loved the brand of cricket that they have played so far in the tournament.

Shreyas Iyer took back the medal from KL Rahul, who had won it in Lucknow after the win over England.

He took an excellent catch of Sadeera Samarawickrama in the slips on the ball bowled by Mohammed Siraj. Iyer grabbed another of Lanka’s last man, Dilshan Madushanka, on Ravindra Jadeja’s delivery.

Dilip has been very imaginative in how he has delivered the medals to his players, who in turn have been eager to receive them, often gesturing in the field about winning one after taking a catch.

Here is the list of all the best fielder awardees after every India game at the 2023 World Cup:

Match 1: India vs Australia, Chennai – Virat Kohli

Match 2: India vs Afghanistan, Delhi – Shardul Thakur

Match 3: India vs Pakistan, Ahmedabad – KL Rahul

Match 4: India vs Bangladesh, Pune – Ravindra Jadeja

Match 5: India vs New Zealand, Dharamsala – Shreyas Iyer

Match 6: India vs England, Lucknow – KL Rahul

Match 7: India vs Sri Lanka, Mumbai – Shreyas Iyer
