The recent Cricket South Africa Awards for the 2019/20 season once again gave the Momentum Multiply Titans plenty of reasons to be proud of players and coaches from the Sky Blues franchise.
“The national awards are always a fantastic evening to reflect on the highest levels of the game in South Africa,” acting Titans CEO Pierre Joubert commented.
“We are so thrilled to see so many Titans excelling around the world, and we pass on huge congratulations to all of them, as well as the coaches in our structures. Without the system that continues to produce excellent players, we wouldn’t be half as successful, and the player depth is testimony to the hard work behind the scenes.”
National limited overs captain Quinton de Kock was once again a standout, collecting the Men’s Cricketer of the Year, the Test Cricketer of the Year and the coveted Players’ Player of the Year for his fine efforts across the international campaign.
Lungi Ngidi, who had to fight off injury, won the One Day International Player of the Year for the Proteas, as well as the T20 International Player of the Year, after an excellent showing in the second half of the summer.
There was also success for veteran Momentum Protea Mignon du Preez, whose match winning exploits in the Womens T20 World Cup group match against England were honoured as the KFC Streetwise moment of the season.
Easterns coach Richard Das Neves has produced fine cricketers that have moved onto the Titans, and his trophy winning season was rewarded with the Pitch vision Provincial Coach of the Year prize.
“As ever, these successes reflect what has come, but also serve as motivation for what we will try to achieve in the future,” Joubert added.
“We salute all the other winners on the night, and we look forward to hopefully getting back on the field soon, to push each other to new heights.”
