White Ferns international Amy Sattherthwaite was crowned the player of the Twenty20 tournament, rewarded for a stellar campaign in which she scored 368 runs for the Melbourne Renegades at an average of 33.45. She also took 11 wickets.

Satterthwaite polled 35 votes to win from Perth Scorchers captain Elyse Villani (28) and Sydney Sixers skipper Ellyse Perry (27).

Australian international Perry and former White Fern Sara McGlashan had cause to celebrate later on Sunday when Sydney defended their title, beating the Perth Scorchers in the final for a second straight year.

McGlashan, 35, didn't need to bat as her top-qualifying team cruised to 100-1 in 15 overs after dismissing Perth for 99 in the decider in Adelaide.
