BCCI took to Twitter to post the same as the caption read: “Say cheese..The @TheBarmyArmy presents #TeamIndia Captain @imVkohli with the International Player of the Year for years 2017 and 2018.”
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.
