Indian Test Captain, continuing his gigantic stride for successful career was awarded ‘The Cricketer of the Year’ title , while Mithali Raj the first Indian woman and second overall to complete 5,000 runs in ODI format this year was picked for the top women’s award in the BCCI annual honours to be given away on January 5 in Mumbai.
The 27-year-old batsman took over as Captain in the middle of the Australian tour after MS Dhoni’s sudden retirement and showed pretty good results.
The Indian Cricket team under Kohli’s captaincy ended a 22-year wait for a series win on Sri Lankan soil before battering world No.1 South Africa to give them their first overseas loss in nine years.
Furthermore, Virat this year scored 640 runs in 15 Test innings that he played at an average of 42.67, while managing 623 runs at an average of 36.65 in his 20 ODI outings this year.
We hope and wish 2016 proves to be amuch better and stronger year both for Virat as well as the whole team.
