The batsman Rob Quiney has won his second successive Bill Lawry Medal as Victoria's best first-class player of the season. Quiney also picked up the Dean Jones Medal as the state's one-day player of the year at the Cricket Victoria awards night in Melbourne on Wednesday.
Quiney, 29, was rewarded for a season in which he scored 938 Sheffield Shield runs at 49.36 and 310 at 44.28 in the Ryobi Cup. It capped off an outstanding year for Quiney, who in February was named Australia's Domestic Player of the Year at the Allan Border Medal night.
David Hussey was named the Melbourne Stars Player of the Year and Aaron Finch won the Melbourne Renegades award. Meg Lanning collected both the Sharon Tredrea Trophy and the Cathryn Fitzpatrick Award as the WNCL and Women's T20 Player of the Year.
The left-arm spinner Clive Rose won the Jack Ryder Medal as the best player in Melbourne's grade competition in a season when he also made his state debut for Victoria. Rose, 22, took 35 wickets for Casey-South Melbourne at 22.57 during the season and also scored 402 runs at an average of 28.71.
