CAPE TOWN — AB de Villiers and Dale Steyn head the list of nominees for the 2013 Cricket South Africa (CSA) professional awards to be announced in Johannesburg on June 4.

The Proteas ODI captain and the world’s leading Test match bowler are two of the five nominees for the main award — the South African Cricketer of the Year. The other nominees are Test and ODI batsmen, Hashim Amla and JP Duminy, and ODI wicketkeeper/batsman, Quinton de Kock.

De Villiers has also been nominated for the Test Cricketer of the Year award and the One-Day International Cricketer of the Year.

Steyn has also been nominated for Test Cricketer of the Year, the T20 International Cricketer of the Year and the KFC So Good Award and remarkably has all three nominations for the Delivery of the Year.

Neither De Villiers, Duminy nor De Kock have previously been named South African Cricketer of the Year so there could well be a first-time winner of CSA’s most prestigious award. De Kock and Duminy also have two nominations each as the former has been nominated for the One-Day International Cricketer of the Year and the latter for the T20 International Cricketer of the Year.

The awards cover the period from May 1, 2013 to April 30, 2014.

This period covers two ICC events — the Champions Trophy and the World Twenty20 — as well as the Proteas tours to Sri Lanka where they won the T20 series and to the UAE against Pakistan where they won both limited overs series, as well as the home series against Pakistan, India and Australia.

“The individual performances have once again been riveting and are too many to mention,” commented CSA chief executive, Haroon Lorgat.
