Bhuvneshwar Kumar has been declared the winner of the ICC People’s Choice Award for 2014. He has been one of our most consistent cricketers with bat and ball in the recent past. He is the third Indian to win this annual award, after Sachin Tendulkar and M.S. Dhoni. On behalf of the BCCI, I congratulate him, and wish him all the best for the forthcoming matches and series.
