There was discussion around the drizzle and the reserve day following the match. However, the finale started with a bit of passing shower. The Sri Lankan side collapsed in front of Indian pace attack. In addition the Sri Lankan side could merely do the formalities in the second innings as they set up just 51 runs to defend. Lastly, India triumphed in their 8th title by ten wickets.

Players of the Indian team, namely. Shreyas Iyer, Virat Kohli, Ishan Kishan, and Hardik Pandya were spotted at the airport.

Reacting to the win Rohit Sharma stated

“Yeah was a great performance. To come out and play like that in the final shows the mental character. Great start with the ball and clinical finish with the bat. I was standing in the slips, and something we take pride in – our seamers have been working really hard. Very very clear in their mind. It was good to see that. Such a performance we will cherish for a long time”

he further added

“I never thought it’s going to do that much. Comes down to the skillset of individuals. Siraj has to be given a lot of credit. Rare for seamers to move the ball in the air and off the pitch. He’s coming off age. We did everything we could’ve achieved as a team in this tournament. Look forward to the series that is coming up in India, and then the World Cup. The way Hardik and Ishan batted in that pressure situation against Pakistan, and then KL and Virat getting hundreds. The way Gill has been batting. Guys have stood up at various stages”
