The Indian cricket team is already on cloud nine after winning back to back series against West Indies and Sri Lanka and what increased the motivation of cricketers were the awards that were given to them by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).
BCCI has titled its awards as Naman Awards and many cricketers were awarded for their contribution to the Indian cricket. The Indian star pacer Jasprit Bumrah was awarded with Polly Umrigar award and Dilip Sardesai award for his wonderful performances in 2018-19. In women category, Poonam Yadav was awarded with Best International Cricketer and Shafali Verma got the award for Best International Debut while Mayank Agarwal got this award in Men category. The former Indian cricketer K. Srikkanth was awarded with Col. CK Nayudu Lifetime Achievement Award and BCCI Lifetime Achievement Award went to Anjum Chopra.
However, more than for these awards, the Indian Twitter users talked about a photo which was posted by BCCI. The event was attended by all the players of the Indian cricket team including the skipper Virat Kohli but he was missing from the pic which was posted by BCCI with the caption, “#TeamIndia all smiles at #NAMAN”.
Here’s the photo:
