The ESPN India Awards 2019 was announced. The ESPN.in Awards recognise the best individual and team performances in Indian sport on a calendar-year basis. Cricket is already covered by ESPNcricinfo’s annual awards, and so is not included in these awards. ESPN Multi-Sport Awards recognised achievements across 10 categories.

PV Sindhu completed a hat-trick of ESPN India’s top honours after being named Sportsperson of the Year (Female) for 2019. In addition, her victory against Japan’s Nozomi Okuhara, which made her the first Indian to have claimed the World Championships in badminton, was chosen as Moment of the Year.
