In the ICC World Cup 2023, KL Rahul was named the best fielder by Team India’s fielding coach for the second time, a distinction that no other Indian player has achieved. While Virat Kohli, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, and other players have each earned this honor once, KL Rahul stands as the only Indian cricketer to clinch it twice.

KL Rahul showcased his exceptional fielding skills during India’s match against England in Lucknow. He made critical contributions behind the stumps, preventing a couple of boundaries on the leg side and expertly handling rising deliveries from the fast bowlers. To celebrate this achievement, the entire team gathered on the field, and KL Rahul’s name shone brightly as the recipient of this accolade.

Shreyas Iyer, the previous winner of the award, had the privilege of presenting the medal to KL Rahul.

For the record, India secured a resounding victory over England by successfully defending a total of 229, winning the match with a convincing 100-run margin.
