Robin Uthappa‘s fairytale run with the bat for franchise and state was rewarded with the CEAT domestic player of the year award. It was yet another feather to the Karnataka batsman’s hat this year and in his acceptance speech he praised his coaches on working on his technique and stated that the IPL win made it all the more sweeter. | Australian Mitchell Johnson, who was instrumental in his country winning the Ashes Series in overwhelming fashion against England at home, and compatriot Glenn Maxwell received the Test Player of the Year and Popular Choice awards respectively, while Bangladesh all-rounder Shakib Al Hasan got the T20 Player of the award.
