Following Virat Kohli’s phenomenal show in the past two seasons, the Indian captain has been presented with the prestigious Polly Umrigar Award for the best international cricketer (2016-17 and 2017-18) at the BCCI Awards (Naman) in Bengaluru on Tuesday.

The BCCI Awards recognises and honours the top domestic and international cricketers across all age groups.

While Virat gets top honours in the men’s category, Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana are recipients of the award for best international cricketer (women) for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons respectively.

To honour one of its finest administrators, the BCCI has rechristened four awards in remembrance of Late Jagmohan Dalmiya. The Jagmohan Dalmiya Trophy has been presented to the leading run-scorer and wicket-taker respectively in the U-16 Vijay Merchant Trophy and to the Best Junior and Senior Cricketer in women’s cricket.

The BCCI has also raised prize money for nine categories by Rs 1 lakh and the revised prize money is Rs 1.5 lakh.

The Cricket Association of Bengal has been adjudged the best State Association owing to their consistent performances in the BCCI domestic tournaments for the 2016-17 season while the Delhi and District Cricket Association receives the prize for the 2017-18 season.

Here’s a look at all the award winners.
