Dravid to get 'Polly Umrigar' Trophy

New Delhi: Veteran batsman Rahul Dravid will be bestowed 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, who scored 1258 runs in 15 Tests at an average of 53 this season, notched up six hundreds during the year.

Dravid was the only Indian batsman who performed well during India's disastrous tour of England earlier this year, which cost them the top spot in the ICC Test rankings after they were whitewashed 0-4.
