Kohli clinches top honours at ICC Awards


India captain Virat Kohli has become the first player to clinch all three top honours – including cricketer of the year – at the International Cricket Council awards.

Kohli, who recently led India to their maiden Test and one-day series triumphs in Australia, was also voted Test and ODI player of the year as the world governing body unveiled its annual awards, chosen by former players and veteran journalists.

The 30-year-old, who first came into the limelight when he led India to victory at the U19 World Cup in Malaysia in 2008, finished 2018 as the top-ranked batsman in Tests and ODIs.
