Kallis is South African Cricketer of the Year



All-rounder Jacques Kallis dominated the South African Cricket Awards, winning three honours, including the prestigious Cricketer of the Year.

Kallis also won Test Cricketer of the Year award and the KFC "So Good Award!" for his centuries in both innings of the Test match against India at Sahara Park Newlands in Cape Town, where he persevered despite a painful injury.

This is the second time Kallis has been named Cricketer of the Year. He won the honour in 2004 as well.

Among other awardees was AB de Villiers, named ODI Cricketer of the Year and Hashim Amla remained the choice of his peers, being named SA Players' Player of the Year and SA Fans' Player of the Year.a
