BCCI formed a technical committee panel under Ravi to find out who all should be shortlisted for inaugural BCCI ghanta awards. Ravi, Arun Lal and Nikhil Chopra discussed in detail for every aspect while shortlisting the candidates.
Their criteria was what are the things that support the team the most. When Virat does well, it helps in maintaining good atmosphere for the team. If he does not do well no one wants to have dinner with him. There Anushka comes to rescue! Good or bad days she is standing by Virat like Rahul and Sonia are doing for Congress.
Along with Anushka, panel also shortlisted Indian batting friendly conditions, West Indies and Srilankan bowlers, crowd support for supporting actor award. BCCI went for an opinion poll and Anushka came out as clear cut winner.
Anushka was excited to get inaugural BCCI ghanta awards. She thanked the Jury as well as all the batsman who got out before Virat so that he got a chance to bat in these batting friendly conditions. She also requested the openers to bat well so that Virat does not get much chance in overseas conditions. She has requested BCCI not to select Rohit as opener for world cup, in that case Virat might not be able to spend 2 minutes with her in pavilion.
Some of the other notable winners are Meiyappan as best actor, Srinivasan as director, special award to Ashish Nehra and Balaji for their stupendous comeback and Vindu Dara Singh for his short cameo.
