Chris Gayle entertains
The Universe Boss seldom fails to entertain the crowd when he is on the field or even off it. Chris Gayle, now 38, quite predictably picked up the ‘Popular Choice Award’ at the CEAT Cricket Awards. The first man to record a hundred in the IPL this season, scored 368 runs in 11 matches for Kings XI Punjab at an appreciable average of 40.88 and a strike rate of 146.03.

Promising Mayank Agarwal
The 2017-18 domestic season was a record-breaking one for Mayank Agarwal as he amassed a total of 2141 runs. The first player to score more than 2000 runs in a single domestic season across all formats, Agarwal was duly rewarded as he bagged the CEAT ‘Domestic Player of the Year’ award. His performances have certainly stamped his credentials and is surely the one to watch out for in the future.
