Former Indian captain Virat Kohli was named the player of the month for October. He showed tremendous consistency so far in ICC T20 World Cup so far with a brilliant 82* not out off 53 balls against arch-rivals Pakistan at Melbourne Cricket Ground and helped Team India win an impossible match.
Kohli then followed with an unbeaten 62 against the Netherlands and helped team India post a big total. Apart from his brilliant two knocks, Kohli produced another magical unbeaten knock of 49 from 28 against South Africa in the second T20I match at Guwahati.

“It is a great honor for me to have been voted the ICC Men’s Player of the Month for October. Being chosen as the standout player by fans across the globe as well as the panel makes this accolade even more special for me,” Kohli said after winning the award.
