The Allan Border Medal is one of the prestigious honors given to the players in the Australian cricket circuit. The Allan Border Medal 2018 awards recently took place in Melbourne. At the event, there were several awards given away to the players. The annual awards were given to the players for their good show in the calendar year of 2017.
Australian skipper Steve Smith was named as the Test Cricketer of the Year. Smith’s herculean run in the Tests has been widely appreciated. He was the highest scorer in the Test cricket during the year of 2017. Smith also led the Australian side to a thumping Ashes win this season. Opening batsman David Warner won the ODI cricketer of the year.
Warner’s consistency in the limited overs has been a big plus for the Aussies. Meanwhile, youngster Jhye Richardson won the Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year.
