Andrew Ellis named NZC's Domestic Player of the Year

Andrew Ellis Canterbury captain has been named New Zealand Cricket’s Domestic Player of the Year for the second time in three years.

Selector Gavin Larsen said the jury particularly took in account Ellis’ role as a “leader in pressure situations.”

“In addition to his significant performances with bat and ball, we considered Andrew Ellis’ role as a leader in pressure situations – a season in which he led by example both on and off the field,” Larsen said.

“Todd Astle Canterbury, Scott Kuggeleijn Northern Districts and George Worker [Central Stags] would all have been a worthy winner, and the panel would like to acknowledge their excellent individual seasons.”
