Best of the year: Cricket Wellington announce season award winners

Press Release – Cricket Wellington
Cricket Wellington are pleased to announce the winners of their season awards, held at the Royal Port Nicholson Yacht Club. The event recognised players’ efforts throughout the season, including the Norwood Awards for Men’s and Women’s Cricketer of the Year.

The 2016-17 season was a breakout one for the prodigiously talented Amelia Kerr, who made her debut for the White Ferns and scored her first century in domestic cricket. Her performances over the season have seen her rewarded with four trophies at Cricket Wellington’s awards, including being given the Norwood Award for Women’s Cricketer of Year.

Hamish Bennett was a standout performer with the ball in his first year with the Firebirds, finishing in the top ten wicket-takers in all three competitions. Bennett’s success this season sees him receive three awards, including the Norwood Award for Men’s Cricketer of Year.

Cricket Wellington congratulate all of the award winners and thank their sponsors and fans for their support this season.
