Indian captain Virat Kohli won the Sir Garfield Sobers Award as the best male cricket player of the last decade on Monday, celebrating the ICC’s highest honor of the decade. Kori was also selected for the ODI Cricket of Decade Award.
Former skipper MS Doni was awarded the “ICC Spirit of Cricket Award of Decade” by fans for his gesture to bring back English batter Ian Bell after a strange runout in the 2011 Nottingham test. The International Cricket Council (ICC) has awarded the announcement via Twitter the highest honor to Kori, who won 66 out of 70 international hundreds during the “ICC Awards”.
At the same time, he was also the hitter of most 50 (94) and most runs (20396), in addition to having the highest average (56.97) of players over 70 innings.
Overall, the 32-year-old has accumulated 12,040 runs in ODI, 7,318 runs in tests and 2,928 runs in T20 International, averaging over 50 runs across the format. Kori was also a member of the Indian national team who won the 2011 World Cup. This is what he cherishes for the rest of his life.
“First of all, I’m honored to win this award. The moments I’ve been most impressed with in the last 10 years are arguably the 2011 World Cup, the 2013 Champions Trophy, and the 2018 Australia Series. “Must be,” Kori said in a statement.
To the honor of ODI, Kori was the only player to have more than 10,000 runs, including 39 hundred and 4850, with an average of 61.83 during the “ICC Awards”.
The world’s governing bodies have named Australian batting enthusiast Steve Smith a 10-year test cricket player and Afghan star Rashid Hahn a T20 10-year cricket player.
In Australia, Ellis Perry swept the Women’s Awards and won the ICC Women’s Cricket 10-Year Honor alongside the ODI and T20 Cricket 10-Year Awards.
