Ellyse Perry has won her first Belinda Clark award, having starred in Australia's successful women's Ashes campaign.
Perry polled 33 votes to claim the coveted prize ahead of two-time winner Meg Lanning (20) on Wednesday at Cricket Australia's awards night.
The allrounder led the Southern Stars for runs and wickets in the 10-match voting period.
"I'm living a dream job, which is wonderful," Perry said in her acceptance speech.
"The last 12 months has been a huge highlight for myself and the team.
"Women's cricket has definitely taken a huge number of steps forward ... the WBBL recently being a watershed moment.
"More and more young girls want to play the sport. Hopefully, the more we play, the more young girls want to play."
The 25-year-old scored 375 runs and snared 17 wickets for Australia in 2015, while she captained the Sydney Sixers in the inaugural Women's Big Bash League season.
