Proteas, Cape Cobras and Cape Town Blitz spinner George Linde has been named the South African Cricketers’ Association’s Most Valuable Player for the 2019-20 season.
Linde topped the Saca MVP rankings with 325.337 points, ahead of Dolphins spinner Prenelan Subrayen and wicketkeeper-batsman Grant Roelofsen with 306.297 and 302.650, respectively.
‘It’s a great feeling finishing top of the Saca MVP for the season,’ said Linde.
‘It was a short, but great season for me this year and I am looking forward to next season.’
Linde was part of the Proteas’ squad for this month’s series against India. The tour was aborted after one ODI as a preventative measure against the coronavirus pandemic.
‘It has been another great season of cricket and I would like to congratulate George on winning the coveted title and Prenelan and Grant, who finished in second and third, respectively,’ added Saca chief executive officer Andrew Breetzke.
‘Despite an early end to the season, there were a number of strong individual and team performances and I would like to thank all the players for their ongoing commitment to the game and the hard work put in by them.’
