While Monday nights are generally reserved for track-pants and red wine on the couch, Australia’s cricketing community has scrubbed up and made its way to Sydney’s The Star for the 2017 Allan Border Medal awards.
In news that will come as a surprise to no one, the ladies dominated the blue carpet (red carpets are so last season, you guys) with a mix of custom-made gowns, off-the-rack cocktail dresses and a few sneaky onesies.
Channel 9 presenter and member of the ‘Jacketgate’ fiasco Julie Snook even wore white, which was perfect beyond words.

Fashion aside, though, the Allan Border Medal is one of the most important prize’s a cricketer can be awarded in their career, recognising the most outstanding players of the past season.
Winners of the medal are voted for by their fellow players, umpires and the Australian media. The eight medal categories include test player of the year, one day international player of the year, Twenty20 international player of the year, Bradman young cricketer of the year, Betty Wilson your player of the year, state player of the year, women’s international cricketer of the year, and female domestic player of the year.
