Aiden Markram, Lungi Ngidi and Junior Dala were all recognised for some excellent figures produced during the 2017/18 season.
Proteas opener Aiden Markram had a stellar summer at the top of the order, after making his debut against Bangladesh in late 2017. He garnered 1000 Test runs at an average of 55.55, including two fine centuries against Australia.
His partnership with Dean Elgar for the Proteas was a source of stability, and Markram's immediate impact was further emphasised when he was briefly handed the captaincy against India in the limited-overs series.
Ngidi, meanwhile, made an immediate impression with ball in hand. Having suffered a major injury the previous winter, he hit the ground running when he finally made his Test debut. Figures of six for 39, to help seal a most competitive series, showed that he was made for the big time. What made it even more special was the fact that he did it at Supersport Park Centurion, his home ground.
Ngidi has continued to strike regularly for the Proteas in all formats, and has already entrenched himself as a vital player across formats.
On the domestic scene, Dala was a thorn amongst opposition. He bowled with great pace and control, ensuring that there was no relenting in pressure for the Sky Blues.
Dala performed to the point where national selectors couldn't ignore him, and he has since gone on to make his international bow.
His assortment of slower ball variations make him a handy option in white-ball cricket for the Proteas.
The 2018 Annual also sees tributes for AB de Villiers and Morne Morkel, two Titans who served their franchise and their country with great distinction.
