South Australian Alex Ross was named Bradman Young Cricketer of the Year, which is open to any player who was aged 24 or under and had not played more than 10 first-class matches at the start of the voting period.
In the 2015 calendar year, the 23 year-old right-hand batsman scored five hundreds for South Australia. Ross was the standout young player in the eyes of his peers with 31 per cent of the vote. Victoria’s Travis Dean (24 per cent) and Western Australia’s Joel Paris (21 per cent) polled the bulk of the remaining votes.
Alex Ross said: “The carrot at the end of the line is to go on and achieve international honours but all I need to focus on now is finishing the season strongly with the Redbacks.”
