BCCI Awards 2018-19: Jasprit Bumrah wins Polly Umrigar Award, Poonam Yadav adjudged best women's international cricketer
Annual BCCI Awards will recognise and reward the best cricketers - international and domestic - and teams from the 2018-19 season.
Virat Kohli won the Polly Umrigar trophy for the third time while Ravichandran Ashwin won the Dilip Sardesai award in the 2017 BCCI awards ceremony.
Kohli said that the greatest moment of his career so far is the Test series in Australia, which India lost 0-2, but not before giving a tough fight to the hosts.
Under Kohli, the Indian team 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.
Former captain Dilip Vengsarkar on Friday received the prestigious BCCI-instituted Col. C K Nayudu Lifetime achievement award for his contribution to Indian cricket.
