CSA set to honour cricketers

2015-05-13 06:00

THE countdown has begun for Cricket South Africa’s (CSA) glittering season­ending awards function.

This much-anticipated event will take place on 3 June 2015 at Gallagher Estate in Midrand, Johannesburg.

The evening will be part of CSA Day, which will see a breakfast awards ceremony in the morning, honouring those who excelled on the amateur front, as well as a golf day featuring key stakeholders, sponsors and Protea players.

Judging for the CSA Awards has been completed. Last year’s CSA Cricketer of the Year, AB de Villiers, is once again a nominee for the coveted award. He will compete against Hashim Amla, Dale Steyn, Morné Morkel and Faf du Plessis.

Convener of the judging panel, Aslam Khota, highlighted the closeness in determining the nominees for the various categories.

“We really had a tough time in reaching the shortlisted nominees,” said Khota.

“We were blessed with excellent and consistent performances on both the domestic and international front and this created healthy debate amongst the panel as we finalized the shortlist.”

The Fans’ Cricketer of the Year and the Ram Delivery of the Season are awards in which fans can participate.

For the Fans’ Cricketer of the Year, fans can SMS the name of their player to 45732.

For the Ram Delivery of the Season, fans can check out either CSA’s Facebook or YouTube pages and watch the insert. You can then vote for your favourite delivery by sending an SMS with the letter A, B or C to 45732. There will be a draw for two lucky fans to attend the CSA Awards and be part of the presentation.

The judging panel for this season’s awards comprised:

) Aslam Khota (convener)

) HD Ackerman

) Victor Mpitsang

) Neil Manthorp

) Makhaya Ntini

) Andrew Samson (statistician)
