Dale Steyn is the 2008 Mutual & Federal SA Cricketer of the Year.
This was announced at the prestigious Mutual & Federal SA Cricket Awards gala dinner held at the Sandton Convention Centre on Tuesday, 17 June 2008.
Congratulations to Dale for not only being our cricketer of the year but for being named the Castle Test Cricketer of the Year, SA Players’ of the Year and SuperSport Fans’ Cricketer of the Year.
The Mutual & Federal SA Cricket Awards recognise the achievements of players at all levels of the game, from Under-15 through to the SA National team and they also give recognition to the many men and women who work behind the scenes such as groundsmen, scorers, umpires and franchise coaches.
The Mutual & Federal SA Cricketer of the Year award has become the most prestigious means of recognition for individual achievement in South African cricket and Steyn follows an impressive list of previous winners in Jacques Kallis (2004), Makhaya Ntini (2005 and 2006) and Shaun Pollock (2007). Both Kallis and Ntini were also multiple award winners.
Through the “Wishes for Wickets” and “Rands for Runs” sponsorship from Mutual & Federal, Shaun Pollock raised R91 800 during the past season with his performance on the cricket field, which will go to Reach for a Dream. The John Wesley School in Pinetown will receive a scoreboard and cricket mat, donated by Mutual & Federal on behalf of Shaun Pollock.
