India may have lost the Freedom series against South Africa, but Indian cricketer and captain Virat Kohli continues to shine. Kohli, on Thursday, was named as the ICC Cricketer of the Year 2017 and awarded the prestigious Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy by the International Cricket Council (ICC). He was also named as the ICC ODI Cricketer of the Year 2017 for the second time after he was given the same honour in 2012. Kohli was also declared as the captain of both ICC test and ODI teams. Australian Cricketer Steve Smith too bagged the top honour as the cricketer was declared as ICC Test Cricketer of the Year 2017 for the second time.

Here’s a look at Kohli and Smith’s statistics:

– Steve Smith had a fantastic 2017 as the Australian scored six centuries in 11 tests and his average has been a staggering 76.76. He also registered his career best score of 239 runs against England at Perth in the Ashes series, which Australia won 4-0.

– Kohli, like Smith, has had a great year as well in test cricket. He slammed five centuries (three double centuries) in 10 matches with his batting average standing at 75.6. In ODI’s Kohli’s average was 76.8 in 26 matches.

Some others awards by ICC for the year 2017 are:

ICC T20I Performance of the Year: Yuzvendra Chahal
