Healy’s success over the past 12 months also saw her named women’s ODI Player of the Year and T20I Player of the Year.

This means the 28-year-old is the first Australian woman to claim the top two individual awards, introduced for the first time this year.

Australia’s opening batter and wicketkeeper Healy won 128 votes from her peers, team officials, umpires and the media to beat Megan Schutt (81 votes), Ashleigh Gardner (71) and Ellyse Perry (60). (READ MORE: Pat Cummins wins Allan Border Medal)

Healy came up with some superb performances in 2018, most notably in the team’s title run at the ICC Women’s World T20 where she scored 225 runs in six matches to be named Player of the Tournament as well as the ICC Women’s T20I Player of the Year last year.

Healy finished as the World T20’s leading run-getter with 225 at an average of 56.25 and strike-rate of 144.23 with four consecutive Player-of-the-Match awards. Her contributions helped Australia storm into the final against England Women, who were defeated by eight wickets in Antigua to claim their fourth world title in T20Is.

Overall during the voting period, Healy scored 578 runs in T20Is at a strike-rate of 145.96. In ODIs, she made 329 runs at 54.83.
