"Tim Southee headed off several players in a very close voting result before ultimately securing his second The Players' Cap with a compelling series against India at home," the New Zealand Players' Association said in a statement.

Southee, who was player of Test series with 14 wickets in the two-match rubber earlier this year, joins Kane Williamson and Ross Taylor as multiple winners of the award.

Daniel Vettori presented the cap to Southee and said that "Tim has had a remarkable year and is a truly deserving recipient of this award".

The awards were presented online as all events have been cancelled or postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Devine's award is her third consecutive.

NZCPA board member and former White Fern Rebecca Rolls announced the 2020 recipient to the team, stating "it is a real honour to be able to present this award to such a deserving recipient in Sophie."

The third CPA Players' Award bestowed on Devine by her teammates places her alongside Williamson's three-peat (2015-2017) and is a fitting reflection of the contribution she has made to the White Ferns team.
