This the 29-year-old's first such award and makes him the first seam-bowling allrounder to win the men's ODI title since Shane Watson did so from 2010-2012. <p></p> <p></p>Stoinis polled 30 votes to be named Australia's ODI Player of the Year over Finch (22 votes), Marsh (18) and Travis Head (14). <p></p> <p></p>During the voting period of January 7, 2018 to January 9, 2019, Stoinis was the constant factor in the 13 ODIs that Australia played. None of his team-mates featured in all 13 games, of which Australia won just two. <p></p> <p></p>In these games, Stoinis finished as Australia's third-highest run-getter with 376 at 28.92 while batting in the lower middle order and he claimed the most wickets (13) at 36.77 apiece. <p></p> <p></p>In comparison, Marsh scored three centuries in seven games during this period at an average of 59.83. Finch, Australia's limited-overs captain, led the team's run-chart with 493 at 44.82 with three centuries.
