Australia v South Africa - First Test: Day 2

The Australian Cricket Awards will be held on Monday, January 30 at the Randwick Racecourse, with the top gongs - the Allan Border Medal and the Belinda Clark Medal - to headline the evening.

The medals are awarded to the best players over the last 12 months in the men's and women's game, with a number of other awards to be handed out as well.

This is Zero Wicket's guide to watching the awards on TV, or live streaming them online, with the event to start at 7:30pm (AEDT).

Who are the favourites?

The favourites for the Allan Border Medal appear to be Usman Khawaja, Nathan Lyon, Marnus Labuschagne and Steve Smith, while captain Pat Cummins has the advantage of playing across all three formats.

On the women's side, Meg Lanning, Alyssa Healy and Beth Mooney appear to be the favourites, although it's tipped to be a tight race for the award.
