Now it's time to reveal the winners of The Cricketer's Lockdown Heroes awards.
Over the course of 30 days in May, we received in excess of 400 nominations across our five categories - Club Hero, Pro Hero, Fundraising Hero, Social Media Hero, and Young Hero - highlighting the incredible contributions of cricketers of ages, from across the UK, during lockdown.
During June, voting was open to the public, and in July the process was passed on to our judging panel - with an equal 50 per cent weighting given to the two.
"It has been quite a moving and life-affirming experience running the nominations, and hearing the stories of the good that has been done in, by and for the community during this difficult summer," digital editor Sam Morshead said.
"While there had to be a winner in each category, it should be noted that everyone who was nominated made a real difference to someone at an incredibly harsh time for cricket - and all the stories will be retained on thecricketer.com to mark those efforts."
