"I congratulate all the winners of the BCCI Annual Awards. The last two years have been fabulous for Indian Cricket with both the men and women's teams doing very well. We are proud of their achievements and this is our small way of acknowledging their on-field efforts," Vinod Rai, the chairman of the CoA, said.

A BCCI release also stated: "To honour one of its finest administrators, the BCCI has rechristened four awards in remembrance of Late Jagmohan Dalmiya. The Jagmohan Dalmiya Trophy will be presented to the leading run-scorer and wicket-taker respectively in the U-16 Vijay Merchant Trophy and to the Best Junior and Senior Cricketer in women's cricket."

Not just players, but even cricket boards are recognised with the Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) being adjudged the best State Association for their "consistent performances in the BCCI domestic tournaments for the 2016-17 season" while the Delhi District Cricket Association will be awarded for the last season.

"Every year we have champion players delivering champion performances. Awards help boost a player's confidence and we only hope that we get more noteworthy performances in the season to follow," said Rahul Johri, BCCI's CEO.
