Flamboyant middle-order batsman Glenn Maxwell was named T20I Player of the Year. Maxwell, who previously won the award in 2015, became the third multiple winner as Australian cricket's top men's T20 player after Shane Watson (2012, 2013 and 2017) and Aaron Finch (2014, 2018).

While all-rounder Stoinis polled 30 votes to win the top ODI award ahead of Aaron Finch (22 votes), Shaun Marsh 18, Travis Head (14) and bowlers Billy Stanlake and Andrew Tye who each earned nine votes.

Maxwell, on the other hand, polled 33 votes to narrowly win the top T20I honour ahead of D'Arcy Short (30 votes) and AJ Tye (29 votes).

Among other awards, Matthew Wade clinched the Australian domestic Player of the Year.
