New Delhi: Indian skipper Virat Kohli was presented with the International Player of the Year award for the year 2017-2018 by England’s popular fan club Barmy Army as the visitors concluded Day 1 of their practice match against Essex on Wednesday.

The Board Of Control For Cricket In India (BCCI), on their official Twitter handle, shared the picture of the 29-year-old posing with the award.

“The @TheBarmyArmy presents #TeamIndia Captain @imVkohli with the International Player of the Year for years 2017 and 2018,” BCCI tweeted.

93-ball 68 on a green wicket at the Chelmsford cricket ground against Essex was followed by the International Player of the Year award for 2017 and 2018 for India skipper Virat Kohli on Wednesday.

Earlier in the day, Kohli showed great footwork and temperament in the middle as the Indian team prepares for the first Test against England with the ongoing three-day game against Essex. Coming in to bat with the score on 44/3, Kohli combined beautifully with Murali Vijay as the two put on 90 runs for the fourth wicket before Vijay (53) was dismissed by Paul Walter.

India ended the day on 322/6 with Dinesh Karthik (82) and Hardik Pandya (33) at the crease.

India had a poor start to the match as they lost two quick wickets. Essex pacer Matt Coles removed Shikhar Dhawan on the first ball the batsman faced before he dismissed Cheteshwara Pujara even before the third over of the day completed.

Ajinkya Rahane then stuck around with opening batsman Murali Vijay before New Zealand’s Matthew Quinn dismissed the former for 17 runs off 47 balls.

In 2017, Kohli was the highest scorer in the One-Day Internationals (ODIs) 1,460 runs in 26 games at an average of 76.84. He had notched up six centuries and seven fifties in the same format. Whereas Test cricket was concerned, Kohli (1,059 runs in 10 Tests) finished fourth on the most runs chart behind table leader Steven Smith (1,305 runs in 11 Tests), Indian teammate Pujara (1,140 runs in 11 Tests) and South African Dean Elgar (1,128 runs in 12 Tests).
