Mumbai:

Veteran batsman Rahul Dravid will be presented with the 'Polly Umrigar Award for India's best cricketer of 2010-11' season during the BCCI's annual awards ceremony to be held on December 10 in Chennai.

The 38-year-old Dravid, who scored 1258 runs in 15 Tests at an average of 53 this season, pulled off six hundreds during the year.

Dravid was the star of India's disastrous tour of England earlier this year, which cost India the top spot in the ICC Test rankings after they were whitewashed 0-4.

Only Dravid stood up and hit up three centuries as rest of the Indian batting tumbled. The Bangalorean will be honoured with a trophy and prize of Rs 5 lakh.

India women's team captain Jhulan Goswami will also be honoured at the annual awards. The pacer will be awarded the 'M A Chidambaram Best Woman Cricketer of 2010-11' trophy for claiming 21 wickets in eight matches, including a five-for.

The Col. C K Nayudu Lifetime Achievement award will be bestowed on former captain and coach Ajit Wadekar.
