Ten Years Of The Cace
The yesterday, today and tomorrow of Indian cricket have been feted at the CASTROL Awards for Cricketing Excellence Ceremony since 1997. The winners and achievers on the stage have been applauded by the cream of India’s cricketing fraternity.
Four awards were added to the roster in 2004-05. These were individual awards, given to Indian players for outstanding batting and bowling performances in Tests and ODIs. The function for 2004-05 was the first to be held overseas, in Johannesburg, South Africa. The venue was specially selected to commemorate 15 years since South Africa returned to international cricket and special awards were also given to South African cricketers.
Now in their eleventh year, the CASTROL Awards for Cricketing Excellence have become synonymous with Indian cricket. It is only fitting that 2007, when the Awards celebrate their tenth anniversary, also marks the 75th anniversary of India's inaugural Test match!
