Warner & Perry Steal The Show
The Allan Border Medal and Belinda Clark Medal went to David Warner and Ellyse Perry respectively. This was the third time that both got the prize. These two awards are for the best men’s and women’s side players who are elected by the votes of players, umpires, and media from across the cricket world. Both had won it the first time in 2016 with Warner getting the second one 2017 and Perry in 2018.

Warner had a superb ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019, scoring 647 runs across the tournament, just behind the leading run-scorer Rohit Sharma’s 648. On the other hand, Perry had a bumper year too. Thanks to her contribution that Australia could dominate in the Ashes and win the multi-format series 12-4. In the only Test of the year, Perry scored a brilliant 116, and also took record figures of 7/22 in the Canterbury ODI. She eventually finished the series with 378 runs and 15 wickets, topping both charts across both teams.
Labuschagne Impresses One & All
Alyssa Healy got both Women’s ODI and T20I Player of the Year as Marnus Labuschagne got the Men’s Test Player of the Year. Healy won after scoring more than 1000 runs across the two formats in 2019, including a record 148* in a T20I against Sri Lanka in Sydney. Labuschagne was incredible since his rise in the Ashes and scored 1249 runs in 15 innings. David Warner got the Men’s T20I Player of the Year award and another star opener Aaron Finch won the Men’s ODI Player of the Year.
Cricket Australia took to Twitter to congratulate all the winners. They wrote, “A fantastic night celebrating a huge year of cricket. Congratulations again to all of our award winners! #AusCricketAwards”
