PIX: Australia cricketers glam up awards night

Last updated on: February 12, 2019 13:54 IST

What a year it has been for Australian cricketers Pat Cummins and Alyssa Healy and after some stupendous performances they took home the big awards at the Australian Cricket Awards on Monday.

Cummins won the 2019 Allan Border Medal and Healy got the Belinda Clark Award after a tumultuous year for the Aussies.

Cummins edged Lyon to win the top honour, while Lyon was adjudged Test player of the Year.

As one of only four players along with skipper Tim Paine, Usman Khawaja and Shaun Marsh to have played all 10 Tests during the voting period, Lyon polled a combined total of 25 votes from his teammates, umpires and media representatives, Cricket Australia reported.

Other than the Belinda Clark medal, Healy was also awarded the ODI and T20 player of the year prizes.

All-rounder Marcus Stoinis was named ODI Player of the Year. He made four half-centuries in 13 innings among his 376 runs and claimed 13 wickets to cement his position in the team. Stoinis earned his Test call-up last week and is expected to be part of the Ashes squad later this year.

Elsewhere, all-rounder Glenn Maxwell received T20 Player of the Year award for the second time, having won it in 2015. He polled 33 votes to narrowly win ahead of D'Arcy Short (30 votes). The voting list also included AJ Tye (29 votes), Aaron Finch (19) and Billy Stanlake (18).

Maxwell played 19 T20 games, scoring 506 runs at 36.14 with a strike rate of 143.75.
