The IPL organizers had introduced a new award in the tournament this year, the glam shot award and that went to David Warner.

A sum of one Million Indian rupees also came with the award for the Hyderabad captain.

Out of all the games played in the season, some of the shots, were identified as the glam shots by the commentators and were put on the official website of IPL for public voting.

The shot, which eventually won the award, was played by Warner in a game in the Round Robin phase.

The left hander had taken a delivery from half a foot outside his off stick and with a whip much similar to the helicopter shot, had got it to go flying into the advertising boards at the cow corner fence.

Another shot that might have been close to that of Warner in terms of the no. of votes was the straight drive of Krunal Pandya, the Mumbai Indian player.

That drive of Krunal did not come off a full delivery. He was actually not even on the front foot, but, the ball rose so nicely to him that he just extended his back foot defence a little further and took his wrists a little higher for the shot to have some elevation.

The Indian top order batsman, Virat Kohli, has said that he is not thinking about the captaincy and he just wants to focus on his game at the moment. Virat gave this statement while talking to the correspondent of an India news paper yesterday.

After India’s early exit from the recently played World T20 Championship, there have been reports that the selectors are planning to appoint Virat Kohli as the T20 captain of India.

When asked whether he wants to lead the Indian team, Kohli said, “Every player in the world wants to lead his national team at some point of time in his career and I am not an exception. But, I am not thinking about it at the moment. Whenever, the selectors will give me this responsibility, I will try to do justice to it.”

“Right now, I just want to work hard on my batting. I want to play some big innings in the upcoming test series against England.”

Virat Kohli was seen crying after India’s exit from the World T20 Championship.  When asked about that, Virat replied, “It was a big disappointed for all the players. We won four out of the five games and still, we didn’t manage to qualify for the semis. We should have batted with a bit more aggression in that last super 8 match against South Africa. But, we didn’t do that. We needed to stop South Africa at 121 or less and it was not an easy task for the bowlers.”

When asked about his relationship with the Indian skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Virat said, “We are very good mates on and off the field. We were not that close when I first came into the side, but, as the time went on, we became really good friends.”
