Joe Root says he is "thrilled to bits" to win the England Men's Cricketer of the Year award for 2014-15, while Charlotte Edwards says she is "absolutely delighted" to pick up the women's prize.
Yorkshire batsman Root credits former coach Peter Moores with helping to simplify his game, while Edwards believes turning professional in the last year has helped her concentrate on the sport and deliver performances and results.
Lancashire and England Under-19s right-arm seamer Saqib Mahmood won the England Development Programme Cricketer of the Year, while the England Disability Cricketer of the Year award was presented to Luke Sugg from the England Visually Impaired team.
