Virender Sehwag recently said he always wanted to emulate his idol little master Sachin Tendulkar and winning the Best Cricketer of the Year Award of the Cricket Board and was happy to achieve the feat after eight years in international cricket.

I have always watched Sachin on TV and it's a great honor to win this award, especially a year after my role model Tendulkar won it.

My first award was the Castrol Award.I thank the BCCI for this honor, Sehwag said after receiving the Polly Umrigar Award from Board President Shashank Manohar.
