Indian all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja is one of the 19 sportsmen who will receive the Arjuna Award. He was nominated for the prestigious award by the selection committee on Saturday and joins players like Poonam Yadav, Tejinder Pal Singh Toor, Mohammad Anas and Swapna Barman as the recipients of the award. 

The BCCI had earlier recommended names of Mohammad Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Jadeja and Poonam Yadav for the Arjuna Award. The award is given by the Ministry of Youth Affairs and Sports in India to honour excellence in sports. In 2018, Indian women's team opener Smriti Mandhana was the only Indian cricketer to get the award. 

Jadeja starred in the World Cup 2019 semifinals against New Zealnd recently as he scored 79 in 59 balls. He is also in the top ten in the bowler and the all-rounder's ranking in Test cricket. 

Wrestler Punia along with para track and field athlete Deepa Malik will be awarded with the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna Award - the highest sporting award given to a player in India.
