India’s skipper Virat Kohli bagged the Polly Umrigar Award for being the best international cricketer in the particular season and Ravichandran Ashwin won the Dilip Sardesai Award for his performance in the four-match Test series against West Indies in 2016.
Mithali Raj, Jalaj Saxena, Axar Patel, Shreyas Iyer and Shahbaz Nadeem were among other notable winners at a ceremony held at the Ritz Carlton Hotel.
