Chasing a target of 51 runs, India reached 51/0 in 6.1 overs, with Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan remaining unbeaten. Gill smacked 27* off 19 deliveries and Kishan clattered 23* off 18 balls.

Speaking after the game, Siraj, who received the Player of the Match award, said, "Have been bowling well since a long time. Was missing the edges earlier. But found them today. The wicket was seaming earlier, but there was swing today. Thought that I will bowl fuller because of the swing."

"When there's good bonding between fast bowlers, it's helpful for the team. I was thinking it would be great if I could stop the boundary. My best spell. This cash prize goes to the groundsmen. This tournament wouldn't have been possible without them", he further added.
