The Indian captain had struck form in the previous match, and he carried it forward in the final. Rohit Sharma's 56 of 42 was crucial, but it was undone because of the steady fall of wickets at the other end.

Dinesh Karthik walked in to bat when Indian fans had lost all hope. With 34 needed from the final 12 balls, the Bangladeshis wouldn't be judged for dreaming about how they'd celebrate the night. But DK had other plans.

Hitting the first ball he faced for six, Karthik went on to play the innings of a lifetime. The keeper-bat went on to blast 29 runs from eight balls to steer his team to victory. India needed five of the last ball, and DK managed to get a maximum. Team India won the 2018 Nidahas Trophy, and Dinesh Karthik earned a permanent spot in the hearts of millions of fans.

The Men In Blue went on a lap of honour, thanking fans at the Premadasa for the steady support right through the tournament. Team India enjoys support in every country it plays in, and Sri Lanka was no different.

The star of the night, though, was one man and one man only - Dinesh Karthik. With his surreal knock on Sunday, DK has ensured Indian fans will remember his name forever.
