RELIGIOUS AWARD Indian cricketer Harbhajan Singh was selected as ‘Sikh Sportsperson of the Year’ at the World Sikh Awards 2011. According to a PTI report, the award citation noted that Singh “has the second highest number of Test wickets by an off-spinner. He is the 11th bowler in the history of Test cricket to claim 400 wickets. Harbhajan Singh was a major contributor to the Indian cricket team's victory during the World Cup."

Singh wasn’t able to receive the award in person – he was busy thwarting the batsmen of the Royal Challengers Bangalore and leading the Mumbai Indians to victory in the final of the Champions League Twenty20 tournament.

In other news, fans of Sachin Tendulkar and Zaheer Khan are waiting eagerly to see if they’ll be selected as ‘Hindu Sportsperson of the Year’ and ‘Muslim Sportsperson of the Year’ respectively.
