Bumrah was India's best bowler in the tournament with 18 scalps in nine games.
Ravindra Jadeja, who was included in India playing eleven only for the last two games, played a spectacular role of an all-rounder, from saving 41 runs on the field in just two matches, to getting important wickets and bowling economic spells for the Men in Blue, to a crucial innings reviving knock of 77 against New Zealand in the semi-finals that almost saw India over the line. Hardik Pandya, on the other hand, played his quota of an all-rounder with grace as he picked up ten scalps in nine matches alongside playing the role of a finisher for the Men in Blue, coming in to bat at the number five position.
