Why not consider the Olympics as such? – Saariko Nov 19 '13 at 7:39
@Saariko - They do not include all sports. – hims056 Nov 19 '13 at 8:09
You seem to have two questions here. "Which is the highest award for sports worldwide?" and "Which is the highest award in individual sports?" Correct me if I'm wrong. – ᴍᴀsᴛᴇʀᴍɪɴᴅ_ᴇᴅ Nov 19 '13 at 14:13

The Laureus World Sports Awards are awarded annually to sportspeople who have been outstanding during the previous year. The awards are given globally.

If we talk about cricket, awards given by ICC (i.e. ICC Awards) are the highest awards for cricket. Also Wisden Cricketers of the Year is also considered one of highest awards.
