The Indian skipper Virat Kohli added another feather to his hat, by becoming the first player in history to win the top three awards of ICC.
ICC Chief Executive David Richardson said about Virat Kohli, "Sincere congratulations to every one of our individual winners and those players named in our ICC Test and ODI teams of the year. Special mention must go to Virat Kohli, who becomes the first ever player to win the Sir Garfield Sobers award along with Test Player of the Year and ODI Player of the Year and be named as captain of both teams."
"This is well-deserved recognition for an extraordinary talent. His regard for the game and particularly for Test cricket is also recognized and appreciated. He is passionate in his support of the longest form of the game and its continued importance. To be recognized as a true cricketing great you need to be successful at all formats of the game and Virat has become a great ambassador for our sport," he added.
Last year, Kohli had won the Sir Garfield Trophy and ICC ODI Player of the Year awards and was also the ICC ODI Player of the Year in 2012.
