Mumbai: Off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, who won the Polly Umrigar Trophy best player award in 2012-13 season, has been recommended by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) for the prestigious Arjuna Award this year.
"Yes, Ashwin has been recommended for the Arjuna Award before the April 30 deadline. No other cricketer has been recommended (for the awards)," said Ratnakar Shetty, BCCI General Manager (Game Development).
A total of 46 cricketers, including women, have been conferred with the sporting honour. Last year, top-order batsman Virat Kohli received the award.
