The former Australian opener was the MC at the Allan Border Medal at Crown Palladium in Melbourne on Monday night.

Smith had an 84 vote lead of second-placed Warner, who claimed the ODI Player of the Year Award while the third in the list was off-spinner Nathan Lyon with 156 votes.

In regards to being named Test Player of the Year at the Allan Border Medal ceremony, Smith accumulated 1,305 runs in the longest format during the voting period at an average of 81.56.

He captained a hard-fought series loss in India, a drawn series in Bangladesh and a triumphant 4-0 Ashes victory over England at home in which he was also named man of the series.

No player has won the Border Medal three years in a row and Smith's imperious form means that trend is set to continue. Smith's record for the year reads; 1,754 runs at an average of 67.46 across all worldwide formats.

The relevant voting period lasted from the final Test match of the 2016-17 season to the last Ashes Test of the current season.

Aaron Finch claimed the T20 International Player of the Year, edging out Adam Zampa by one vote.

Perry's unbeaten 213 against England in November is the third-highest women's Test score and broke the Australian record.

Allrounder Ellyse Perry won the Belinda Clark Award for a second time, confirming her as Australia's best female cricketer over the past 12 months.

Apart from topping the Australian global batting with 756 runs at 68.73, the fast-medium bowler was also third with the ball, snaring 20 wickets at 32.10.

Western Australia pace bowler Jhye Richardson took home the Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year award, while Georgia Redmayne snapped up the Betty Wilson Young Cricketer of the Year award.
