New Zealand captain Kane Williamson and women’s all-rounder Amelia Kerr picked up national player-of-the-year awards at a ceremony in Auckland on Thursday. Williamson, who led the Black Caps across all three formats, won the Sir Richard Hadlee Medal for the men’s player of the year and was also named their best test player after scoring 801 runs in the season at a remarkable average of 89.
Kerr, 18, was crowned the women’s ODI player of the year for scoring 415 runs at an average of 59, which included a world record knock of 232 not out against Ireland last June in a game where she also took five wickets for 17 runs.
The awards ceremony also included a tribute to the victims of the attacks in Christchurch that killed 50 people last week.
