by | May 26, 2021

Cricket South Africa gave due recognition to its leading women’s players who have kept the flag flying during extremely difficult Covid-19 times with the announcement of the nominations for the annual CSA Awards.

The various winners, including the prestigious SA Women’s Player of the Year Awards, will be named during a social media takeover at 19:00 SAST on Monday, 31 May 2021.

It has been a stellar year for the Momentum Proteas 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), Suné 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 One-Day International (ODI) cricket.
