Women star cricketers Harmanpreet Kaur and Smriti Mandhana, who played a crucial role in India’s impressive runners-up finish at the Women’s World last year, were chosen for best international cricketer (women) for the 2016-17 and 2017-18 seasons respectively.

“Following his phenomenal show in the past two seasons, Team India captain Virat Kohli will be presented with the prestigious Polly Umrigar Award for the best international cricketer (2016-17 and 2017-18) at the BCCI Awards to be held in Bengaluru on June 12,” the BCCI stated.

To honour the late former President Jagmohan Dalmiya, the BCCI has given a new name to four awards in remembrance of him.

“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 Cricket Association of Bengal was adjudged the best State Association (2016-17)while the Delhi and District Cricket Association got the prize for the 2017-18 season.


“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,” Committee of Administrators Chairman Vinod Rai said.
