Williamson named NZ Player of the Year at ANZ Awards
The ceremony began with a tribute to the victims of the terrorist attacks in Christchurch last week, which claimed the lives of more than 40 people.
Williamson, New Zealand's captain in all formats, claimed the Sir Richard Hadlee Medal for men's Player of the Year, in addition to being named the Test Player of the Year. He scored 801 runs during the judging period at an average of 89.
Taylor, who scored 759 ODI runs last year at an average of 84, was named the ODI Player of the Year, while Boult was awarded the Windsor Cup for first-class bowling after taking 35 wickets at an average of 24. Munro was chosen as the men's T20 Player of the Year.
Teenage allrounder Amelia Kerr was the big winner among the women, honoured as the ODI Player of the Year following an impressive season in which she amassed 415 runs while averaging 59. The highlight of her season was a world record 232 not out against Ireland in Dublin last June, a match where she also claimed 5 for 17.
