He scored 2277 ODI runs at an average of 45.54 in the voting period.

Making it a Scottish double in the awards, Kathryn Bryce scooped the women's accolade for her T20 efforts in which she averaged 50 with the bat and 9.93 with the ball.

She got the nod ahead of her sister Sarah, Sterre Kalis of The Netherlands, and a trio of Thailand cricketers - Natthakan Chantham, Chanida Sutthiruang, and Sornnorin Tippoch.

"It is a real honour to win this award, thanks for all your support!" said Bryce on Twitter.

"A special mention goes out to every woman that played for Scotland before me that contributed to getting this team into a position to play in global tournaments."
