ESPNcricinfo staff

Cameron White has capped off an outstanding season by winning the Bill Lawry Medal and the Dean Jones Medal at Cricket Victoria's awards night in Melbourne.

White was comfortably on top in both awards, for Victoria's Sheffield Shield Player of the Year and Ryobi Cup Player of the Year respectively, after a consistent summer in which he made 675 Shield runs at 45 and 387 one-day runs at 77.40. The productive season was his first since relinquishing the state captaincy to Matthew Wade last year.

In other awards, Aaron Finch was named as the Player of the Season for the Melbourne Renegades and Luke Wright took out the same honour for the Melbourne Stars.

Sarah Elliott won her fourth Sharon Tredrea Award as Victoria's best player in the WNCL, while the Cathryn Fitzpatrick Award for the state's best player in the WT20 went to Elyse Villani for the second consecutive summer.
