The awards, that were mostly given out at BCEW’s Twenty20 Finals day at Wolverhampton Cricket Club in late September, also included a number of awards specific to batting, bowling or fielding. All are listed further down this article.

Hossell’s award for an outstanding season follows his incredible performance in England’s Ashes victory away to Australia at the start of the year, in which he twice achieved the best ever figures by an England bowler in international VI cricket.

This year’s awards included four first time winners, Tahseen Sabir and Amjad Khan from Lancashire Lions as well as Somerset VICC’s Steve Cook who collected two trophies. The fourth was Ian Morris who, after a number of near misses in several categorie,s finally got his hands on a trophy.

The most successful club in this year’s awards were Somerset who collected 4, Lancashire took 3, Warwickshire 2 and there were one each for Metro, Northants, Surrey and Sussex.
