Smart, who led Hong Kong to a second place finish at the 2006 ACC Trophy in Malaysia, pipped a number of well-performed players for the title, including Mark Fuzes, Mark Eames, Rahul Sharma and Hussain Butt.
Neisha Pratt won the Woman Cricketer of the Year for the third year in a row whilst Irfan Ahmed was named Young Cricketer of the Year. Ahmed also claimed a share of the Schoolboy Cricketer of the Year Award, sharing the honour with Zuaid Khan. Chan Sau Har, who made her debut for Hong Kong as a 12 year-old, was named Young Female Cricketer of the Year.
In a break with tradition, the Young Dragon of the Year Award also went to a female, with HKCC's Godiva Li winning the title whilst KCC's Kristine Wong was named the Most Improved Women's Player.
Trevor Warburton received the prestigious Jungu Vachha Umpire of the Year honour.
