Virat Kohli nominated for Arjuna Award

Virat Kohli nominated for Arjuna Award

Royal Challengers Bangalore captain and top Indian batsman Virat Kohli has been nominated for the prestigious Arjuna Award for sportspersons by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The Arjuna Awards were instituted in 1961 by the government of India to recognize outstanding achievement in National sports.

To be eligible for the Award, a sportsperson should not only have had good performance consistently for the previous three years at the international level with excellence for the year for which the Award is recommended, but should also have shown qualities of leadership, sportsmanship and a sense of discipline.

Virat Kohli led RCB to the top of the points table in the 2013 IPL earlier and is among the top run scorers of the tournament. He has enjoyed two prolific years in limited overs internationals and has become a Test regular too with his performance over the last season. Kohli was named ICC’s ODI Cricketer of the Year 2011-12 in August 2012 and also received the Polly Umrigar Award for Cricketer of the Year in November 2012 from the BCCI.

Kohli will join fellow RCBian Zaheer Khan who became an Arjuna Awardee in 2011.

Former legendary batsman Sunil Gavaskar's name has been proposed for Dhyanchand Award for his lifetime achievement.
