Big ICC honour for Quinton de Kock

Indian leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal won global Twenty20 performance of the year for his incredible haul of 6-25 against England at Bangalore last February.

But the biggest victor of the awards was India captain Virat Kohli, who walked away with twin awards: ODI Cricketer of the Year and the Cricketer of the Year - the former being the second such win of his glittering career.

"Congratulations to Virat Kohli on becoming the ODI cricketer of the year and the ICC cricketer of the year. It's called test cricket for a reason and I'm very humbled to win that award", Smith said.

The award, which was decided for performance based on the period between September 21, 2016 to December 31, 2017, the Indian skipper scored 2,203 Test runs at an average of 77.80.

Reflecting on the same, Kohli said, "It means a lot to me to win the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for ICC Cricketer of the Year and ICC ODI Cricketer of the Year".

Kohli also won his second ICC ODI Cricketer of the Year award after having won the same award in 2012, making him the first cricketer to win the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy and the ICC ODI Cricketer of the Year award in the same year.

"Two Indians winning it back-to-back makes it really special".
