Funniest moment of GT20 2019: The post-match presentation ceremony witnessed the most hilarious moment of the tournament.
During the final match of the recently concluded Global T20 Canada 2019, Winnipeg Hawks defeated Vancouver Knights in a thrilling super over to win their maiden title. Having registered victory over the defending champions, Hawks have defeated the best team in the tournament to lift the trophy.
Given the players involved in the second season of the tournament, there is no hiding to the fact that the tournament has been a success. The addition of some tried and tested names played a vital role in raising the standard of the game this time round.
GT20 has become even better in the 2nd edition. There’s so much talent on display & local cricketers are rubbing shoulders with international stars.
Some great atmosphere at all the matches. These are the early years of something really big for cricket in N America! @GT20Canada

Funniest moment of GT20 2019
In what ended up becoming the funniest moment of the tournament, it happened during the post-match presentation ceremony of the final. Turkish Airways, one of the sponsors of the tournament, were to announce two free business class tickets via a lucky draw.
Tariq Anwar of Turkish Airlines was present during the post-match presentation ceremony to take out a chit from a box. Having done the same, Anwar announced that the award has been won by a lady named Angela Singh.
However, what caused a lot of doubt regarding the lucky draw was that the lady was already standing some 15-metre away from the presentation area and appeared to wait for her name to be called out. Watch the full video below:
