Team India captain Virat Kohli will be presented with the prestigious Polly Umrigar Award for the best international cricketer (2016-17 and 2017-18), following his phenomenal show in the past two seasons, at the BCCI Annual Awards (Naman) to be held in Bengaluru on June 12.
 
The BCCI Awards recognizes and honours the top domestic and international cricketers across all age groups.
 
While Kohli has been chosen for the top honours in the men’s category, Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana will be the maiden recipients of the award for best international cricketer (women) for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons, respectively.
 
To honour its former President Jagmohan Dalmia, regarded as one of the finest cricket administrators, the BCCI has rechristened four awards in his memory. 
 
The Jagmohan Dalmiya Trophy will be 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 gets the prize for the 2017-18 season.
 
Mr. Vinod Rai, Chairman, CoA, said, “I congratulate all the winners of the BCCI Annual Awards. The last two years have been fabulous for Indian Cricket with both the men and women’s teams doing very well. We are proud of their achievements and this is our small way of acknowledging their on-field efforts.”
 
Ms. Diana Edulji, member CoA, said, “This year we will be presenting awards for the past two seasons and it is going to be a big occasion ahead of the historic Test against Afghanistan. For the first time, an award category for the best International Cricketer (Woman) has been introduced and it is a step in the right direction.”
 
BCCI Acting President, Mr. CK Khanna said, “The BCCI Annual Awards is an occasion where former greats of the game, the present generation and the stars of tomorrow come under one roof. For BCCI, it is an opportunity to show its gratitude towards cricketers who enrich this game with their skills and hard work.”
 
Mr. Rahul Johri, CEO, BCCI said, “Every year we have champion players delivering champion performances. Awards help boost a player's confidence and we only hope that we get more noteworthy performances in the season to follow.”
