Hobart Hurricanes opener rewarded after a stunning KFC BBL season in purple

Hobart Hurricanes opener D'Arcy Short has been honoured for his record-breaking season, named Player of the Tournament for BBL|07.

Short hammered a record 504 runs for the Hurricanes in the regular season, a tally that included a tournament record score of 122 and led to his maiden international call-up for Australia's Gillette T20 Tri-Series campaign.

The left-hander has a chance to add to his run tally when his Hobart side take on the Strikers in tonight's KFC BBL final.

Short won the award by polling 26 votes on the 3-2-1 system, eight clear of Sydney Thunder skipper Shane Watson and 10 in front of third-placed Alex Carey.

Votes are awarded by the standing umpires at the end of each match.

Perth Scorchers allrounder Ashton Agar has also been honoured, named the BBL|07 Young Gun as the leading player aged under 25.

The 24-year-old polled 15 votes to finish fourth on the overall tally, one ahead of Scorchers teammate Ashton Turner and Strikers spinner Rashid Khan, who sit in the same age bracket.

Agar picked up eight wickets at the impressive economy rate of 5.74 and averaged almost 50 with the bat to also earn a call-up for Australia's tri-series campaign.

Melbourne Renegades duo Amy Satterthwaite and Sophie Molineux won the equivalent awards in the Rebel WBBL.
