Rabada set to win major CSA awards

Philander and Rabada voice doubts over day-night Test

South African fast bowler, Kagiso Rabada, leads the nominations pack for the 2015/2016 Cricket South Africa (CSA) Awards.

The gala event will take place on 26 July 2016 at the Sandton Convention Centre, a day after the CSA 25- Year Anniversary Dinner.

The CSA Awards Judging panel recently finalized the nominations list for the glittering occasion.

Rabada has been nominated in the following categories: SA Cricketer of the Year, Castle Lager Test Cricketer of the Year, Castle Lager ODI Cricketer of the Year, KFC So Good Award and RAM Delivery of the Year.

Rabada, since his Test debut against India in Mohali last November, has taken 24 wickets from six Tests at an average of 24.70. The seamer burst into life during the home series against England after being surprisingly left out of the side for the opening Test in Durban.

He scalped four wickets at Newlands and five at the Wanderers, before returning impressive figures of 13 for 144 in South Africa’s solitary win in Centurion. Rabada also made his mark in the limited-overs formats, taking 37 wickets in 20 ODIs at 21.45 and 22 in 16 T20Is.

“It is my great pleasure and privilege to congratulate all our nominees in this special year in which we celebrate the 25th year of our existence,” commented CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat. “And let us not forget to thank all the selfless people who work so diligently behind the scenes to create playing opportunities for our leading cricketers to excel at all levels.

“Our country continues to produce world-class players. As proof, we need only reflect on the superb way in which Quinton de Kock, Kagiso Rabada, Temba Bavuma and Tabraiz Shamsi have blossomed over the past year and begin their journey alongside our established greats like AB de Villiers, Hashim Amla, and Dale Steyn.”

Loyal Proteas fans can also have their say in the awards. The SA Fans Cricketer of the Year and the RAM Delivery of the Year require fans to vote for these respective awards.
