Tayla Vlaeminck's stunning first year with the Australian women's cricket team continued on Monday night.
The fast bowler from Bendigo was crowned the Betty Wilson Young Cricketer of the Year at the Cricket Australia awards at Crown Casino.
The 21-year-old was judged by her peers as the most promising player in women's cricket.
After overcoming a frustrating string of injury setbacks, Vlaeminck played for Australia 11 times, including a Test debut in the Ashes in England.
Her most recent form in the international Twenty20 tri-series against England and India proved that she could become Australia's premier pace bowler.
The Strathdale-Maristians product took career-best figures of 3-13 against India and backed-up with a game-changing spell of 2-18 against England on Sunday.
"I've never seen someone operate at a hundred percent more that I've seen Tayla," Australian star Ellyse Perry told cricket.com.au.
"She loves being out there, just cannot hold back and has to throw everything into it which I think is just amazing.
"She's so eager to have a go and also to learn, and that's really shown in the last little bit since she's had this opportunity at this level."
Vlaeminck will play for Australia in Wednesday's tri-series final against India before preparing for the Twenty20 World Cup on home soil from February 21 to March 8.
Vlaeminck was part of the Australian squad which won last year's Twenty20 World Cup final in the West Indies.
