Explosive left-handed batsman Shikhar Dhawan won the 'golden bat’ for scoring the most runs in the tournament, after India beat England by five runs in the final of the ICC Champions Trophy at Edgbaston on Sunday.

The opener scored 363 runs from five matches at an average of 90.75. He hit two centuries and a half-century with a highest of 114.

“I'd dreamt of this, I'm really happy with it. The bouncy tracks suit my game. I worked hard in practice and in the warm-up games. It makes it more special because I was out of the side for a few years,” said Dhawan at the presentation ceremony, dedicating his award to the people caught in the Uttarakhand floods at the moment.

India beat England 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.
