The Indian captain Abhishek Sharma was not only spot on with his captaincy but also with his individual brilliance. The young all-rounder made his skills do the talking. He was the man who grabbed final for his team. Sharma scored a gritty 29 in the middle order and then backed it up with figures of 4/37 to be named Man of the Match. Unlike the other captains in the tournament, Sharma’s leadership skills were marked by some brave decisions.

In addition to that, he did not shy away from setting aggressive fields as against most of his counterparts. The skipper finished with 154 runs to his name at an average close to 31 with a top score of 59. He scalped 8 wickets with the ball at an average just over 18. He surely emerged as a good leader prospect for the future.
