COLOMBO — Australia's Shane Watson was presented with the World Twenty20 player of the tournament award on Sunday night after dominating the event with bat and ball.
The opener topped the run-scoring list with 249 at an average of 49.80, including three half-centuries.
Watson also claimed 11 wickets at 16.00, second on the bowling list behind Sri Lanka spinner Ajantha Mendis (15 victims at 9.80).
The star allrounder's form tapered off in Australia's last two games of the tournament, scoring 15 runs and taking only one wicket.
Australia lost to eventual champions West Indies in the semi-finals.
The Windies beat hosts Sri Lanka by 36 runs in Sunday night's final in Colombo.
