Mumbai: Former India captain Ajit Wadekar will be honoured with the Col CK Nayudu Lifetime Achievement trophy at the annual Indian Cricket Board awards ceremony to be held in Chennai on December 10.
The award will comprise a trophy, citation and cheque for Rs. 15 lakhs, said a BCCI release today.
The 70-year-old Wadekar, who represented India in 37 Tests and scored 2113 runs, expressed his jubilation at receiving the honour. "This is wonderful, really. Whatever little services to cricket I have made have been recognised by the Cricket Board. It's good to get it at such an early age," said Wadekar.
