Chris Lynn was the ultimate winner but the evergreen Scorchers batsman & Mitch Marsh weren't far behind.

Michael Klinger has finished fifth and Mitch Marsh equal seventh in the voting for the KFC BBL|06 Player of the Tournament.

Brisbane Heat big-hitter Chris Lynn won the gong with 18 votes, with Sydney Sixers all-rounder Sean Abbott and Adelaide Strikers wicketkeeper-batsman Ben Dunk runners-up on 16 votes.

Votes are awarded on a 3-2-1 basis by the standing umpires at the end of each match meaning a player can receive up to six votes per match.

The ever-consistent Klinger, who scored 334 runs at an average of 37.11, finished with 12 votes in fifth spot, boosting calls for an Australia T20 call-up.

Marsh dominated the early stages of the tournament, blasting 210 runs in five matches with a strike of more than 150, to finish with 10 votes.
