Captain Brendon McCullum picked up the Sir Richard Hadlee Medal at last night's New Zealand Cricket Awards, while Williamson won the batting award as well as being named international T20, ODI and Test player of the year.

Williamson says all the players and staff worked together in making the squad a successful one.

"From when I first started you can certainly see the changes from my perspective to now," the 24-year-old says.

"There's no coincidence the results have changed, cricket certainly is fickle in its nature, you win games and you lose games, but the way that we wanted to play our cricket is something that I do think we've achieved."

Trent Boult received the bowling award and Suzie Bates the womens player of the year award.
