Twenty-two children, including 10 girls and 12 boys have been selected for the Indian Council for Child Welfare (ICCW) National Bravery Awards, 2019. One award has been given posthumously.

The gallant children come from 12 different states of India.

The coveted Bharat Award has been conferred on 15-year-old Master Adithya K, who is from Keral. Adithya saved more than 40 lives when a bus they were travelling in bus caught fire in Nepal in May 2019. Just 50 killomentres short of reaching Indian border, the bus caught fire at Daunnein.

Another Kerala resident and award recipient was as brave but not as lucky. The only recipient to recieve the award posthumously is Muhhamed Muhsin EC, who has honoured with the Abhimanyu award.

From Kozhikode, Muhhamed Muhsin risked his life to save three of his friends from drowning in deep sea. The friends survived but Muhsin, their saviour, died. Mushin’s family held back tears and emotions.

The two awardees from J&K Sartaj Mohidin Mughal and Mudasir Ashraf were found with great difficulty. The security forces knocked on their doors to inform them that both had won the bravery award. Mughal saved his family during live shelling from Pakistan. Mughal lives at the Line of Control (LoC) while Mudasir helped IAF and rescue personnel during the IAF chopper crash in Budgam in February 2019.

ESPN Cricinfo Awards 2019-20

ESPN Cricinfo Awards 2019-20: The ESPNcricinfo Awards 2019 recognise the best individual batting and bowling performances in cricket over the calendar year. They are voted on by an independent jury of former cricketers, commentators, and ESPNcricinfo’s senior writers. Previous winners have included Dale Steyn, Lasith Malinga, Mitchell Johnson, Shahid Afridi and Kumar Sangakkara.

Test batting performance of the year: Kusal Perera
Perera’s innings was one of the greatest of all time, not just of 2019

Test bowling performance of the year: Kemar Roach
Shades of the West Indies’ 1980s pomp in the best Test bowling performance of 2019

ODI batting performance of the year: Ben Stokes
One man (and a boundary) stood between New Zealand and a World Cup title

ODI bowling performance of the year: Matt Henry
Or how India were knocked out of the World Cup

T20I batting performance of the year: Glenn Maxwell

T20I bowling performance of the year: Lasith Malinga
Twelve years after he pulled off the impossible, Malinga did it again

Morgan unshackled the team from the ignominy of 2015 to lead them to their greatest World Cup triumph

Debutant of the year: Jofra Archer
Archer had a part in every high England hit in 2019

Women’s batting performance of the year: Meg Lanning
The opposition better beware when Australia’s apex predator is on the prowl

He came, he yorked, he blew Hong Kong away

ESPN India Awards 2020 Winners List

Lifetime Achievement award: Balbir Singh Sr.

This year’s lifetime achievement goes to three-time Olympic gold medallist and former Indian hockey captain Balbir Singh Sr., who starred in India’s wins in London (1948), Helsinki (1952) and Melbourne (1956), wearing the captain’s armband in the third of those campaigns. Balbir’s five goals in a 6-1 final win against Netherlands in 1952 is also a record for most goals scored by an individual in an Olympic final. Balbir was the manager for the Indian team when they won their only World Cup till date, in Kuala Lumpur in 1975.

Sportsperson of the Year (Female): PV Sindhu

PV Sindhu’s third successive such award comes on the back of an accomplishment no Indian badminton player had achieved before her — securing the singles title at the BWF World Championships. Her dominant run culminated in a thrashing of Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara that lasted a little more than 30 minutes.

Sportsperson of the Year (Male): Saurabh Chaudhary

Pistol shooter Saurabh Chaudhary had a phenomenal year, winning five gold medals in World Cups through the year in his pet event 10m air pistol. Two of them came in the individual category, and three of them in the mixed team event.

Comeback of the Year: Koneru Humpy

Chess player Koneru Humpy, who had taken a maternity break from the sport between 2016 and 2018, claimed her first World Championship title with a win at the Women’s World Rapid Chess Championship in December 2019.

Emerging Sportsperson of the Year: Deepak Punia

Freestyle wrestler Deepak Punia marked himself out as a potential medal hopeful for India at the 2020 Olympics with twin successes at the World Championships in his sport in the 86kg category. First, he won the Junior World gold at the start of the year, and then made the senior final in the World Championships later in the year. He had to be content with silver in his endeavour to complete a rare double, having withdrawn from the final due to injury.

Coach of the Year: Pullela Gopichand

Pullela Gopichand, ESPN India’s Coach of the Year during the inaugural season of the awards in 2017, reclaimed his title thanks largely to Sindhu’s World Championship crown. With a big year in Indian badminton looming on the horizon thanks to Tokyo, Gopichand’s inputs as coach will remain invaluable.

Team of the Year: Manu Bhaker-Saurabh Chaudhary

The young 10m air pistol mixed team of Manu Bhaker and Saurabh Chaudhary virtually swept away all competition during the year’s World Cups in their event, marking their potential to contribute a medal for India in Tokyo.

Differently-abled Athlete of the Year: Manasi Joshi

Manasi Joshi, who trains at Pullela Gopichand’s academy, picked up gold in the women’s singles badminton at the BWF Para-Badminton World Championships in Basel, adding to a silver and bronze that she had won at the event in previous editions.

Moment of the Year: PV Sindhu’s World Championships final win

Sindhu had made it close to the top crown in badminton’s World Championships before, but her dominant run to the crown in 2019 found the perfect exclamation mark with a 37-minute 21-7, 21-7 demolition of Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara in the final.

The Courage award: Dutee Chand

Dutee Chand has fought challenges all through her short but eventful career as an athlete, most notably when her name featured in the controversial hypoandrogenism regulations of the IAAF, global athletics’ governing body. Dutee eventually got a ruling in her favour to earn the right to race again. In 2019, she became the first Indian athlete to come out in the open about a same-sex relationship. ESPN’s Courage award is a hat-tip to her seemingly simple act of speaking out fearlessly, something that drew respect and admiration from the global sporting community.
