The seemingly fitting nomination was made by Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Other sportspersons nominated for the award are: Golf player Anirban Lahiri and shooter Jitu Rai.

The nominations come in the wake of brilliant performances by these sport stars during the year 2015. While Kohli's romance with the bat is known to all, Lahiri and Jitu have brought immense recognition to comparatively less followed sports in the country.
