Cricket fans, here are all the Player of the Year nominees



Proteas fans, your 2021/22 Men’s Player of the Year will be one of five cricketers – Kagiso Rabada, Keshav Maharaj, Temba Bavuma, Rassie van der Dussen or Quinton de Kock.

Cricket South Africa on Tuesday named the nominees for the CSA Awards, which will be a virtual ceremony taking place on August 14.

Performances from May 2021 to April 2022 were taken into account, i.e. from the West Indies tour to the end of the Test series against Bangladesh in April.

Who will be the favorite to win the overall title will depend on your preferred format.

Rabada, Maharaj and Bavuma were outstanding in testing, while Van der Dussen and De Kock shone in clean ball formats.

Rabada took 30 wickets at an average of just 20 in the five Tests he played, while spinner Maharaj also took 30 wickets in the judging period, in eight Tests at an average of just 18.20. He also played in the ODIs with 18 wickets in 14 games at an economy rate of just 4.61.

De Kock averaged 73 in the three Tests he played before his retirement from the longer format, and his main successes came in ODIs – 523 points in eight games with an average of 65.37 and a rate batting of 108 – and the T20s (524 runs in 14 innings at 43.66, SR 131).

Kyle Verreynne, Marco Jansen, Keegan Petersen and Sarel Erwee are the new talents competing for the Proteas Newcomer of the Year award.

Women dedicated to ODIs

Proteas women’s team mainly focused on over 50 cricket last season due to the ODI World Cupin which they reached the semi-finals.

Prolific goalscorer Laura Wolvaardt and all-around star Marizanne Kapp are likely favorites for the overall SA Women’s Player of the Year award, with bowlers Shabnim Ismail and Ayabonga Khaka and all-rounder Sune Luus also nominated.
