The team's performance was also a fitting tribute to coach Rahul Dravid, who finally got his hands on a World Cup trophy.

Under Dravid, the side had finished runner-up in the 2016 edition in Bangladesh.

The Virat Kohli-led side was victorious in 2008 while Mohammed Kaif was captain when India triumphed way back in 2000.
