Johannesburg, May 24 (IANS) Cricket South Africa (CSA) on Monday announced the nominations for the annual awards, with 26-year-old prolific run-getter Aiden Markram being nominated in three categories – ‘Cricketer of the Year’, ‘T20 I Cricketer of the Year’ and ‘Test Cricketer of the Year’.

The winners will be announced virtually on May 31.

CSA said in a statement on Monday, “The Proteas men had a mixed bag of results against England, Sri Lanka and Pakistan as they entered a new era following the retirement of many legends of the game. Not surprisingly, all four nominations for the ‘Men’s Cricketer of the Year’ — Temba Bavuma, Aiden Markram, Anrich Nortje and Rassie van der Dussen — have never won the award before.”

Praising the women’s team, CSA said: “It has been a stellar year for the Momentum Proteas (women) who achieved a first-ever white-ball double over India on the sub-continent and achieved a similar result at home to Pakistan in a restricted programme.

“The Momentum Proteas paint a picture of much more experience with Shabnim Ismail [2015], Sune Luus [2017] and Laura Wolvaardt [2020] all being previous winners of the ‘SA Women’s Cricketer of the Year Award’ with the fourth member of this nominated quartet being Lizelle Lee, currently ranked No. 1 batter in the world in ODI cricket.”
