Healy's inspiring message to male counterparts


//

Belinda Clark Award winner Alyssa Healy has displayed a heartfelt show of support for her male counterparts after a tough 2018 for Tim Paine's side.

Healy capped off a tremendous season which saw her win the World T20 with Australia by winning the prestigious award, but she was grateful to be able to celebrate her achievements with all of Australia's best cricketers.

"It's not very often the men's and women's team get together and celebrate the success that they've had over the year," Healy said.

"I know that the men's team has been doing it a little bit tough.

"From me to Justin (Langer), to Tim (Paine) and to Aaron (Finch) captaining the World Cup, good luck to you guys.

"Whilst you've had a difficult 12 months, I need you to know that we are completely behind you. We support you 100 percent and we know that you are going to do Australia proud."

Healy's speech also included a hilarious jab at her uncle Test legend Ian Healy, which left the crowd in raptures.

"Uncle Ian's never won a Belinda Clark Medal so I'll take that one," she said.

The Belinda Clark Award was one of three awards for Healy on the night after being named the Female ODI Player of the Year and the Female T20 Player of the Year.

While Nathan Lyon was unable to win the Allan Border Medal, the off-spinner did not go home empty-handed, named the Test Player of the Year.

Victorian star Glenn Maxwell was named the Male T20 Player of the Year for his terrific all-round performances.

Cult hero Marcus Stoinis was named the ODI Player of the Year after an outstanding season which saw him score 376 runs and take 13 wickets in 2018.

Young Victorian duo Will Pucovski and Georgia Wareham were named the Bradman and Betty Wilson Young Cricketers of the Year, respectively.

Tasmania star Matthew Wade may have been denied a Test spot this summer, but he received some consolation for his outstanding domestic season, named the Male Domestic Player of the Year, while Heather Graham was named the Female Domestic Player of the Year.

New South Wales all-rounder Moises Henriques took home the inaugural Community Champion Award for the work he has done with regards to mental health issues.
