Dolphins veteran Vaughn van Jaarsveld picked up six awards at the Dolphins’ Annual Awards on Thursday.
His accolades included the coveted Players’ Player and Player of the Year awards.
The Dolphins made the play-offs in both of the white-ball competitions, losing to the Titans in the final of the One Day Cup, and losing out to eventual winners the Highveld Lions in the CSA T20 Challenge semi-final. He was also named Most Valuable Player of the Year, and Fan’s Player of the Year.
Van Jaarsveld was the most influential batsman in the Dolphins side across all three formats, and his record for the season underscores that. He received the awards for T20 Batsman of the Year, having played just three games in the competition where he scored 207 runs at an average of 103.
In the CSA 4-Day Franchise Series he notched up 673 runs at an average of 48, including three centuries and two fifties with a top score of 138. These numbers led to him being awarded 4-day Batsman of the Year.
Van Jaarsveld was the only batsman in the country to finish in the top ten run-scorers across all three competitions this season.
‘I just want to help the Dolphins win trophies,’ Van Jaarsveld said after receiving his awards. ‘If I can score runs and help the side to win games and be in play-off’s, then I am doing my job. This season we might not have done that, but we are all ready to go for next season.’
