KYLE ABBOTT of the Sunfoil Dolphins has bagged the Sunfoil Series Sizzler of the Month award for the month of February following his strong bowling performances in the two rounds of qualifying matches.

The Sunfoil Sizzler of the Month award is worth R15 000.

Abbott took 12/125 for the Dolphins in the match against the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras. He is the joint leading wicket-taker in the competition (22) along with Simon Harmer of the Chevrolet Warriors. He has the best average (13.09) of those who have played more than three matches and he is also the most economical bowler (2.28).

Other players who came strongly into contention for the February award were Rudi Second of the Chevrolet Knights, Keshav Maharaj of the Sunfoil Dolphins, Shaun von Berg of The Unlimited Titans and Dane Piedt of the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras.

“Congratulations to Kyle on his Sunfoil sizzler award,” commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat. “His splendid form earned him a recall to the Proteas Castle Lager Test squad and that should serve as an inspiration to all Franchise players.

“It is also interesting to note that three of the five top performers in February were spin bowlers.”

The South African Cricketers’ Association Most Valuable Player index (SACA MVP) is used as the measuring tool in determining the Sunfoil Sizzler of the Month.

The top 5 performers in the Sunfoil Series during the month of February were:

The SACA MVP is calculated using an internationally recognised formula which takes into account every discipline in the game of cricket.  Batting, bowling, fielding, captaining and winning are all factored in within the context of each individual match. Individual player performances in pressure situations, for example, carry more weight; thus players who deliver when their team needs them most, earn more points.

The SACA MVP latest ranking standings are updated weekly on the SACA website (www.saca.org.za), and may be viewed ‘per competition’ or by having a look at the ‘overall’ standings.
