Jordan Silk and Peter Siddle have tied for Tasmanian cricket’s highest individual male honour on offer; the Ricky Ponting Medal.  It’s both players first Ricky Ponting Medal, and the first time top honours at the Cricket Tasmania Awards Night have been shared for the men since the 1992-93 season, with both players finishing even on 134 votes.  With Siddle finishing the season as leading wicket-taker for the Tigers in both the red and white ball formats, and Silk leading the run tally for the Tigers in one-day cricket, whilst ranking second for the Tigers in first-class runs, it’s not hard to see why both players couldn’t be split.

On the female side of the ledger it was also a tight affair, with Sarah Coyte taking out the program’s top honours, winning her maiden Female Tigers Player of the Year Award for season 2021-22.  It was a tight race between the Tigers two leading wicket-tackers for the season, with Coyte and Gibson both finishing the season with 13 apiece to their name – at averages of 23 and 22.15 respectively – but in the end Coyte edged ahead to pip Gibson for the award by a single vote.
