Voting Procedure[edit]

Under the current procedures, the three field umpires (those umpires who control the flow of the game, as opposed to goal or boundary umpires) confer after each match and award 3 votes, 2 votes and 1 vote to the players they regard as the best, second best and third best in the match respectively.

Players who are suspended during the season are rendered ineligible to win the award, however, they may still continue to poll votes.
