A video showing no Indian cricketers getting nominated for the prestigious Arjuna Award for their poor performance last season which resulted after a communication gap between sports ministry and BCCI.


As the deadline for the respective sports associations to send the names of the candidates is over, it has been found that BCCI hasn't sent any names despite the fact that in 2011 the senior cricket team won the World Cup and Virat Kohli was one of the top run-getters in ODI cricket.


Abhijit Rai, OSD to Sports Minister Ajay Maken, said, “The question of sending form to BCCI doesn't arise as it is available on the internet. Any sports association can download it and fill it up. As of now, I am unable to provide you with further details as to why BCCI didn't send their nomination.”
