All-rounder Ravindra Jadeja was declared the man of the match of the ICC Champions Trophy final against England, and was also given the ‘golden ball’ for picking the most number of wickets, 12, in the tournament.

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.
