Mumbai: Jan 11, 2014

Former India captain Kapil Dev was on Saturday honoured with the CK Nayudu Lifetime Achievement Award by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) at its seventh annual awards ceremony.

Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin was bestowed with the Polly Umrigar Award for being the best international cricket last season.

Ashwin in the 2012-13 season during which he claimed 43 wickets, inclusive of four 5WI and one 10WM, and scored 263 runs, inclusive of two 50′s from 8 Tests, besides grabbing 24 wickets from 18 ODIs, and three wickets from four T20 Internationals.

The Polly Umrigar Award comprises a trophy and a cheque for Rs 5 lakh and the award has been won in previous years twice by Sachin Tendulkar (2006-07 and 2009-10) and once each by Virender Sehwag (2007-08), Gautam Gambhir (2008-09), Rahul Dravid (2010-11) and Virat Kohli (2011-12).

Legendary all rounder and 1983 World Cup-winning captain Kapil became the 21st Indian cricketer to receive the C K Nayudu Award.

“When we started playing, it was only for passion as we didn’t think about any awards. I would like to thank all the captains under whom I have played. Bishan Bedi, Sunil, Venkat [S Venkataragahavan], Gundappa Viswanath. I would like to thank my family who allowed me to play the game for so much time. I believe all of us including me should feel proud for making the game popular in the country,” Kapil said after accepting the award.

One of the greatest cricketers of all time, Kapil was the first player to complete the ‘double’ of 5,000 runs and 400 wickets in Tests.

The most poignant moment of the short award function was when Mahendra Singh Dhoni and Kapil were caught in the same frame posing with the Prudential Cup and the ICC World Cup Trophy. Dhoni then handed the ICC World Cup Trophy to Kapil while the veteran handed the Prudential Cup to Dhoni.
