DANE PIEDT of the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras has bagged the Sunfoil Series Sizzler of the Month award for the months of March and April following his strong bowling performances which included five-wicket hauls in three of the last four matches.

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

It enabled him to finish the season as the leading wicket-taker in the competition with 45 dismissals. His average of 19.93 and his economy rate of 2.50 were also both up among the best performers in these categories. To back it up he played a career-best innings of 92 in the final match against the bizhub Highveld Lions and this contribution together with his seven wickets in the match, resulted in an outstanding all-round performance.

Other players who came strongly into contention for the final award of the season were Rory Kleinveldt of the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras, David Wiese of The Unlimited Titans, Andrew Birch of the Chevrolet Warriors and Cliffe Deacon of the bizhub Highveld Lions.

“Congratulations to Dane on his Sunfoil sizzler award,” commented Cricket South Africa (CSA) Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat. “He is shaping up as an outstanding young talent and it is great news when young and talented spin bowlers perform in this manner.”

The other monthly winners of the inaugural Sunfoil Sizzler award were Stiaan van Zyl of the Nashua Mobile Cape Cobras (November), Ashwell Prince of the Chevrolet Warriors (December) and Kyle Abbott of the Sunfoil Dolphins (February). The overall Sunfoil Player of the Season will be announced at CSA’s annual awards function in June this year.

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 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.
