I have to put this on site for info:-


"Faf du Plessis and Dane van Niekerk have been named South African Cricketer of the Year in their respective categories at the Cricket South Africa (CSA) awards on Saturday.

It was a first for the Standard Bank Proteas captain and a remarkable display of consistency at the top level by Van Niekerk who has won the award for three of the last four years. She was also honoured by her peers in being named SA Women’s Players’ Player of the Year.

Du Plessis was the leading award winner on the night, also being named Standard Bank ODI Cricketer of the Year as well as being honoured by his peers in being named SA Players’ Player of the Year.

The other men’s awards were shared around. Quinton de Kock was named Standard Bank Test Cricketer of the Year and David Miller as Standard Bank T20 International Cricketer of the Year, while Rabada was honoured by the fans on being named SA Fans Player of the Year. The CSA Delivery of the Year went to Vernon Philander for his dismissal of Azhar Ali of Pakistan in the 3rd Castle Lager Test match.

Dale Steyn was honoured with the KFC Streetwise Award for his achievement in becoming South Africa’s leading Test match wicket-taker and one of the top 10 on the all-time list.

The International Newcomer of the Year award went to Rassie van der Dussen who had the outstanding average of 73 and strike rate of 81 in ODIs and a strike rate of 133 in T20 Internationals in his debut season. These figures included an average of 62 and a strike rate of 90 in his maiden appearance at the ICC Cricket World Cup.

The other top awards in the women’s category went to Marizanne Kapp who was named ODI Player of the Year and Shabnim Ismail who was named T20 International Player of the Year. Tumi Sekhukhune was named International Women’s Newcomer of the Year.

“Faf and Dane have both had very good years, both as contributors in their specific disciplines and also in the leadership qualities they bring to our two senior national sides,” commented CSA chief executive Thabang Moroe.

“Both our Standard Bank Proteas and our Women’s Proteas are well ranked both as teams and individuals across the various formats. I must particularly highlight the Proteas first ever away ODI bilateral series win in Australia. It is quite remarkable that over the past few years Faf has led the Proteas to home and away ODI Series wins over Australia as well as our first ever home Test series win against the same opponents.

“Just how much Dane means to our women’s team became evident when she was ruled out of action for a considerable period of time through injury.

“It is also a very special moment for the CSA Family to honour our leading Test wicket-taker of all time, Dale Steyn, with the KFC Streetwise award. He has been a wonderful brand ambassador for both CSA and the Proteas for well over a decade and he has not only been a great leader of the Proteas attack but has also played a key role as mentor of the next generation.

“Our domestic cricket remains blessed with great talents and congratulations to all the winners in those categories as well."

I know it  not a good WC for the tear for SA - but have to place my sincere sympathy on record to Mozart.  Despite his vicious attack on De Kock and glorifying  of Amla - the latter was not even mentioned in the report.      Always wrong on everything about cricket and rugby he always need all sympathy he can get.

In the meantime Gibson was fired as coach and temporarily replaced by Van Zyl

Thank fuck!

Maketa and Benkie were fucking useless.

We achieved NOTHING with them.


Bring back some old school fellas... guys like kepler, cullinan or others who have some coaching creds.

We picked Maketa and Ontong baased on what? Skin color?

Benks??? he's never achieved much as a coach and as a bog average player.

Good riddence!


I feel for Otis.

"Maketa and Benkie were fucking useless."

"I feel for Otis."

Why so?

Otis is the one who appointed Benkenstein. The two had worked together in the past.

Oh dear...

“Our domestic cricket remains blessed with great talents and congratulations to all the winners in those categories as well."

Now there's a laugh.

Mike, the trouble with the report is it stops with the current admin staying put when it's quite clear that the rot started at the top. They've had over enough time and it's now time for cricket people to run the admin side of things not a bunch of desk clerks.

No - first of all the problem always was at the top - having a selection panel consisting of members with no real top class cricket se4perate from the coach always would have been a disaster.

What has happened now is they have done away with the whole top structure system.   Both the coach  and separate Selection Committee are gone.  The restructuring allowed for appointment of a Director of Cricket - based much on the practice used in both soccer and rugby.  This Director will -

*   take over the functions of the selection committee;

*   appoint assistant coaches and experts to deal with the coaching and other team issues;

*   supervise the new appointees and will thus play a role in coaching itself.

They have not appointed a Director yet - Van Zyl is acting in that position until a suitable candidate could be found.    This is where the problem comes in - they desperately needed a person with a strong character and not easily intimidated.   Any SA appointee would be under severe political pressure - so a better way to go is to appoint a foreigner that would not be subject to such pressure.

No sign of the "emotional" boyjie Hmmmm?.....guess its another deep dive.

What a farce.......the only thing they missed was the only award that is meaningful for the Proteas.....Choker of the Year.

Aug 07, 2019, 04:53

"Our domestic cricket remains blessed with great talents...."

Have you ever heard anything more delusional?

Aug 07, 2019, 05:13

Great talents who are giants at home and chokers the moment it counts.

Aug 07, 2019, 08:00

No Mozart

The main choker causing massive damage was AMLA and a few others like Duminy.  Was also involved in previous choking - so Amla qualifies for the Choker of the Year award.

Amla WC average 41.......tiny little Quintie 38, boosted by a dead rubber game. New flavour of the day Markram 23, boosted by a dead rubber game.

No doubt who the Choker of the Year was.....Aid-him Markram!

Lost in most games where Amla batted.   He was by some distance not a ODI player - with a strike rate of  64,8 he was a liability and no asset in the ODI environment.

Lucky he did not play in the OZ ODI  match - otherwise the Proteas would have lost that match too.

I remind you of this Muck:

'You were talking about yesterday Poofter.....I answered you about Y....E...S....T....E...R...D...A..Y. You said he scored worthless runs.....if Amla never hung in there after Quintie's deer in the headlights innings I doubt we would have made 200. He made a match of it, which we could have won if de Kock figured out the player 4 ft in front of him had snicked the ball.....or if he simply supported his bowler.

Pathetic stuff from your man Poof.'

Best news this year: Dismissal of Otis Gibson .... what contribution has this oke done to SA Cricket?

The International Newcomer of the Year award went to Rassie van der Dussen who had the outstanding average of 73 and strike rate of 81 in ODIs and a strike rate of 133 in T20 Internationals in his debut season. These figures included an average of 62 and a strike rate of 90 in his maiden appearance at the ICC Cricket World Cup.
