While bowling first, they bundled the Lankans for just 50 runs in 15.2 overs and then, chased down the target in just 6.1 overs. Mohammed Siraj won the Player of the Match award for his six-wicket haul. 

After the match, Rohit heaped praises on his bowlers and said: "It was a great performance, especially to come and play like that in a final. Shows the mentality of the team. Our seamers are actually working really hard for many years, so it's pleasing for the side to see them rewarded like that. Very clinical. A performance like that will be cherished for a very long time.”

Rohit had a decent tournament with the bat as he scored 194 runs in five innings, at an average of 48.50, including three fifties. In the final, he did not come out to open as Ishan Kishan came out to bat alongside Shubman Gill. Now, he will be in action in the upcoming three-match home ODI series against Australia. Then, Rohit will look to guide his team to the upcoming ODI World Cup triumph as they will begin their campaign on 8 October in Chennai against the Aussies.
