• De Kock named SA Cricketer of the Year

    Proteas wicketkeeper-batsman Quinton de Kock has been named as the CSA Cricketer of the Year at its annual professional awards on Saturday evening.

    De Kock, who replaced Faf du Plessis as the new skipper in the limited-overs formats, edged fast bowlers Lungi Ngidi and Anrich Nortje for the top accolade.

    In what has been a rather tough past 12 months for the national side, De Kock was a talisman for the Proteas camp, proving his worth time and time again with the bat.

    Earlier in the evening, the 27-year-old was also named Test Player of the Year for a number of value contributions in losing causes against India and England, respectively, while getting the nod from his fellow teammates for the Players’ Player of the Year award as well.

    Nortje, though, was rewarded for his impressive performances throughout the year by being named Newcomer of the Year, while Ngidi walked away with both the T20I and ODI Player of the Year awards for his efforts against England and Australia.

    On the women’s front, Shabnim Ismail was crowned the women’s T20 Cricketer of the Year after an extremely successful season for the bowler, with Laura Wolvaardt winning the women’s ODI Player of the Year award and subsequently the overall women’s Cricketer of the Year accolade.
