Michael Clarke has been named Australia's leading cricketer for a second straight year.
He also joins Ricky Ponting as a four-time winner of the Allan Border Medal which was first awarded in 2000.
The award is voted for by players, media and umpires, with Clark topping the table with 198 votes, ahead of Mike Hussey and Shane Watson who each polled 165.
Clarke was also named the country's Test cricketer of the year for the second consecutive season, after scoring 1,080 runs at 77.14 in nine Test matches between February 25, 2012 and January 28 this year.
Watson, meanwhile, was a comfortable winner of the Twenty20 award, with pace bowler Clint McKay collecting the one-day international prize.
