CSA awards: Keshav Maharaj named South Africa’s Men’s Cricketer of the year

Ayabonga Khaka, meanwhile, bagged the SA Women’s Cricketer of the Year award

Keshav Maharaj was on Sunday named South Africa’s Men’s Cricketer of the year for 2021/22 for enjoying an outstanding season across formats. The left-arm spinner, across the past 12 months, bowled the side to multiple Test wins, scalping 21 wickets @ 20.66, and not only established himself as a mainstay in the T20I set-up but also pretty much locked himself in as a future captaincy candidate, leading the side in as many as five matches. 

He also, during the said period, took 14 wickets at an ER of 4.54 in ODI cricket and played a key hand in the side’s 3-0 whitewash of India at the start of the calendar year. Thus for his efforts across formats, the 32-year-old was named the Men’s Cricketer of the Year.

On the other hand, Ayabonga Khaka bagged the SA Women’s Cricketer of the Year award. Khaka took a staggering 41 wickets in 29 appearances in the 2021/22 season, proving to be the nucleus of the bowling attack, and was deservedly rewarded with the Women’s Cricketer of the Year title.

On the Men’s side, Kagiso Rabada was named the Test Player of the Year, while Aiden Markram was named the T20 International player of the year. Janneman Malan, for his relentless run-scoring, was meanwhile named the One-Day International Player of the Year. The International Newcomer of the Year award was bagged by Maro Jansen, who in the past 10 months has risen rapidly and has become a mainstay in the Proteas’ Test XI. 

The now-retired Lizelle Lee was named the Momentum Women's T20 International Player of the Year while Laura Wolvaardt bagged the Momentum Women's One-Day International Player of the Year award.

On the domestic front, meanwhile, Sisanda Magala bagged three awards: ivision 1 One-Day Cup Player of the Season, Domestic Players' Player of the Season, and the SACA Most Valuable Player Award.
