Australia has an annual awards night, which is basically an excuse to make the players get dressed up in tuxedos, show off their girlfriends, and tell themselves how wonderful they are.
Anyway this year, Ricky Ponting got the Allan Border Medal for the best cricketer of the year, Shane Warne got Test cricketer of the year, and Michael Hussey got Best limited overs player of the year.
It’s broadcast on television here, although it isn’t my cup of tea so I watched a DVD movie instead. The most interesting thing in the media coverage was Warne saying he might play till he is 40. That means he might still go to England in 2009. Good stuff!
