India Fielding Coach Hails Suryakumar Yadav's "Awareness" During The Game-Changing Catch In T20 WC Final

Suryakumar Yadav was spot on with his decision-making and awareness while pulling off the game-changing catch in the T20 World Cup final against South Africa in Barbados, said India's fielding coach T Dilip. Needing 16 runs from the final over, the dangerous David Miller hit a wide full toss from Hardik Pandya but Suryakumar steadied himself on the ropes, caught the ball, released it just as he went over the boundary ropes and then came back in to complete an astonishing catch.

"When the moment comes, it's his decision and awareness of rope, that's very important, and knowing with confidence that he can throw and come back, it's a decision making at that time, and he got on to that," Dilip told PTI Video while speaking about the catch.

Dilip, who had started the innovative practice of awarding medals for best fielding performance at training, said the young and experienced players "gel well" and called it one of the best things of this Indian team.

"I must give credit to the players for taking time out to come for even optional practice despite such a tight schedule. They themselves take responsibility and come for optional practice.

"Second, we all come through a system, like India A, NCA... One great thing about this squad is that there is a combination of experienced players and a combination of youth, and they really gel well together," Dilip said after the team's title triumph on Saturday.
