Indian Cricket Captain Virat Kohli and world champion Weightlifter Mirabai Chanu will receive the prestigious Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna on the 25th of this month, the Sports Ministry announced on Thursday. 

Kohli, the world's Number One Test batsman as per the ICC rankings, has been in stupendous form in the past three years though he missed out of the top award despite nominations in 2016 and 2017. The 29-year-old Kohli has 6147 runs in 71 Tests with 23 centuries and 9779 runs in 211 ODIs, including 35 tons.

Chanu was chosen for the prestigious award following her gold medal in 48-kilogram category at the World Championships last year. She also bagged the yellow metal in this year's Commonwealth Games but did not compete at the Asian Games due to injury.

Star javelin thrower Neeraj Chopra is among 20 sportspersons picked for the Arjuna Awards and they will be honoured by President Ram Nath Kovind. The President will also present the Dronacharya and Dhyan Chand Awards on the same day.
