Pakistan's Hasan Ali won the Emerging Player of the Year while Afghanistan's Rashid Khan was voted the ICC Associate Player of the Year. "Only the best of the best have won this award and Virat certainly deserves to be in that select group of cricketers", Richardson said.

Kohli had a prolific 2017 in which he scored 1059 runs from 10 Tests at a staggering average of 75.64, besides amassing 1460 runs from 26 ODIs with an astonishing average of 76.84.

After being named as the Best Cricketer and Best ODI Cricketer for 2017, Virat Kohli has called it an honour to win the Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for the first time.

"It's the first time winning the Garfield Sobers Trophy, and it's a huge honor for me", Kohli said in a statement.

Virat Kohli has become only the second India batsman after Sunil Gavaskar to reach the 900- point mark in the latest ICC Player Rankings for Test batsmen, which were released following the conclusion of the Centurion Test. Last year, the honour had gone to R Ashwin for his all-round performances in Test cricket.

The International Cricket Council in a report said Thursday that Khan has been named as the victor of the award for his outstanding and historic performances during the year 2017.

Hasan's 3 for 19 played a vital role in Pakistan's Champions Trophy to win the game in front of India.
