It is the most prestigious night in Australian Cricket, as the year’s best player is rewarded for his efforts with the Allan Border Medal. Like 2010, it was Shane Watson who again took home the award, becoming the only person other than Ricky Ponting to win the award, back-to-back. Watson was the shining light in a fading team throughout 2010/2011. He also took home the Test and ODI player of the year honours, tallying a combined total of 295 votes, 100 votes clear of the runner-up, Mike Hussey. Other winners included, Usman Khawaja (State Player of the year), and Trent Copeland (Young player of the year).
