The Jana Bankable trophy has been especially conceptualized and designed by Foley Designs, creators of the Commonwealth Games Queen's Baton and the Formula One winners' trophy.

"The essence of the Jana Bankable trophy design comes from symbolically projecting 'enduring values of excellence' in a cricketer at the highest level of the sport - a precursor to being defined as most 'bankable'. The trophy expresses exclusivity and excellence, through a bold black sculpture of metal, 'carved' with the fluidity of the Jana symbol. At the pinnacle of the form is a finely crafted gold Jana symbol, a powerful visual property of Jana, in a sense fusing the values of the organisation and the award itself," said Michael Foley, Founder, Foley Designs.

"Jana Bankable Player award was introduced in alignment with our philosophy to be consistent and dedicated. So far we have given away 18 awards and it was an honour to handover each of these awards to deserving bankable players. Conclusion of the Ind-Eng PayTM T-20 series was a perfect occasion for us to introduce an additional award and trophy for Jana Bankable Player of the Series. The awards also are a representation of how dependable Jana is as an organisation to its customers, just as a player is to his team," says Puneet Narang, Chief Marketing Officer, Janalakshmi Financial Services.

Jana had tied up with BCCI as an official partner for the next three years across three different formats. The audience voted for 'Jana Bankable Player' by simply voting on

The award has continued to recognise bankable players through the series which began from 22nd September with India - New Zealand series. The Jana Bankable Player award presented an opportunity to fans to reward the most consistent player in India's home matches. The bankable player award was handed to the cricketer during the post-match presentation.

The Jana Bankable Player Award is different from a Man of the Match or a Man of the Series Award, since it recognises the player that delivered for his side, when it mattered the most.
