New Delhi: Veteran batsman Rahul Dravid will be bestowed the `Polly Umrigar Award for India`s best cricketer of 2010-11` season during the BCCI`s annual awards ceremony to be held on December 10 in Chennai.

The 38-year-old Dravid, who scored 1258 runs in 15 Tests at an average of 53 this season, pulled off six hundreds during the year.

Dravid was the star of India`s disastrous tour of England earlier this year, which cost India the top spot in the ICC Test rankings after they were whitewashed 0-4.

Only Dravid stood up and hit up three centuries as rest of the Indian batting tumbled.

The Bangalorean will be honoured with a trophy and prize of Rs 5 lakh.

India women`s team captain Jhulan Goswami will also be honoured at the annual awards. The pacer will be awarded the `M A Chidambaram Best Woman Cricketer of 2010-11` trophy for claiming 21 wickets in eight matches, including a five-for.

The Col. C K Nayudu Lifetime Achievement award will be bestowed on former captain and coach Ajit Wadekar.
