Here is how fans reacted:
Gambhir picked Stoinis as the captain of his team because of his good all-round show in the tournament, where he amassed 352 runs in 17 matches and picked up 12 wickets as well. Coming in late in the order, Stoinis gave Capitals the finish they were looking for in some matches and also did a decent job when he opened the batting before the final.
At the time of filing the copy, the Capitals after having opted to bat first was reeling at 42 for three in six overs.
