McGilvray Medal

The McGilvray Medal is an annual award given by ABC Radio to a player chosen by the commentators. It is awarded at the beginning of the calendar year to honour the player's achievements of the preceding year. Awarded since 1997, the medal is named for Alan McGilvray, a former cricketer and long-serving veteran cricket commentator, and is usually presented by his surviving family members.
