Amla named South African ‘Cricketer of the Year’


Johannesburg: Indian-origin batsman Hashim Amla was the star of Cricket South Africa’s Annual Awards night, clinching the ‘Cricket of the Year’ honor along with four other trophies, including a special one for a knock against India.

Amla was also named “Test Cricketer of the Year” and lauded by both his peers and fans, who ensured that he won the “South African Players’ Player of the Year” and “CSA Fans’ Cricketer of the Year” awards.

Amla’s fifth trophy was the “So Good Award” sponsored by popular chicken fast food franchise KFC in recognition of his match-winning knock of 253 not out in the first Test against India in Nagpur last year.
