Cricket South Africa hosted its annual awards breakfast on Saturday, when the stars of amateur cricket were honoured for their performances over the past 12 months.
Over 20 awards were handed out, with the big winner being South Africa U19 captain Bryce Parsons.
The 18-year-old all-rounder was named U19 Cricketer of the Year for his efforts with the national team and also collected the Khaya Majola Cricket Week Player of the Tournament.
Neil Brand of Northerns bagged the CSA Student Cricketer of the Year prize, while his former coach at the union, JP Triegaardt, who has left over the winter to rejoin Northern Cape, picked up the Senior Provincial Coach of the Year title.
Northerns also swept the women’s awards with Nadine de Klerk named CSA Girls U19 Player of the Tournament for her supreme all-round efforts during the competition. Her more senior compatriot, Sune Luus, who also captained the Proteas Women in 2019, was voted CSA Women’s Provincial Cricketer of the Year.
The CSA Three-Day Provincial Cup and Provincial One-Day Cricketers of the Year went to Glenton Stuurman of Eastern Province and Mpilo Njoloza of Western Province, respectively.
There were joint winners in the Groundsman of the Year category for the first time, with Bethuel Buthelezi and Evan Flint securing it for their outstanding work in keeping the Wanderers Stadium in a world-class condition.
‘Congratulations to all our award winners. They are the individuals who keep the spirit of our amateur game so strong. And a special word of congratulations to those who have had to overcome disabilities to be honoured here. We can be very happy with the strength of our various development programmes that play a vital part in our talent identification pipeline,’ said CSA chief executive officer Thabang Moroe.
