David Warner was named Australia’s Test player of the year today, beating captain Steve Smith for the Allan Border Medal.

Warner won Australian cricket’s highest individual prize — judged on performances in Tests and one-dayers over the season — with 240 votes, 21 ahead of Smith and 57 more than Mitchell Starc.

The prolific run-scorer totalled 30 votes for Test player of the year, six more than Smith with Starc again in third position (18).

“My heart is racing. I honestly thought Smudge (Smith) had a terrific year and he would have taken this out,” Warner said.

“People said to me I could have been one of the greats of the game but I just sat there and let it go through my ears.

You can only control what you control on the field.”

Twenty-nine year-old Warner, who last year was named Test vice-captain, powered his way to his 16th Test century this summer.
