Australian cricket captain Steve Smith has been honoured with this year’s Allan Border Medal at an event organised to honour Australian cricketers in Melbourne. The Allan Border Medal is awarded to the most outstanding Australian cricketer of the past season.

Smith, who last month was named the International Cricket Council’s Test Cricketer of the Year, became the fifth player after former skippers Michael Clarke (2005, 2009, 2012, 2013), Ricky Ponting (2004, 2006, 2007, 2009), Shane Watson (2010, 2011) and David Warner (2016, 2017) to win the medal on multiple occasions. This was Smith’s second AB Medal. He previously won it in 2015.

Smith received this honour after he led Australia team to a 4-0 victory over England to reclaim the Ashes. He was also in his prime touch during Australia tour of India earlier in 2017.

Meanwhile, David Warner won the One-Day International Player of the Year for the second consecutive time. In the past year, Warner played 13 innings scored 691 runs at 57.58 strike-rate. He also scored 3 tons.
