Highlight Story

Sachin Tendulkar will be awarded with the Polly Umrigar Trophy for being the best cricketer during the 2009-10 season at the BCCI awards on May 31, the Board said.

The World Cup-winning squad will also be felicitated during the function.

During the 2009-10 season, Tendulkar scored 1064 runs, including five hundreds and a double ton, from 10 Tests at an average of 82. In 12 ODIs during that period, Tendulkar scored 695 runs at 69.5.

Last year he also became the first to score a double hundred in ODIs, against South Africa at Gwalior in February.

Tendulkar will receive a trophy and cheque for Rs 5,00,000.

RR Chief Executive Sean Morris said in an e-mail to RCA secretary Sanjay Dixit that the franchise had decided to take disciplinary action against Warne and the Australian has accepted it.

“We have decided to take disciplinary action against the player,” Morris said in the e-mail.
