Star of the Month

Performance of the Month - January

January's candidates are:
Graeme Smith Need we say more? His decision to go out to bat at No 11, while nursing two painful injuries, to try to save the dead-rubber Test for his country at the Sydney Cricket Ground is the stuff of folklore. The skipper’s never stood accused of lacking old-fashioned guts …
Giniel de Villiers The Dakar rally may presently be staged a million miles from that destination (in South America, nogal!) but the South African still made us all proud by winning the auto section of the mega-gruelling event.
Steven Pienaar The Everton and Bafana midfielder was hailed in the UK press for being a “ceaseless engine” in a fierce Monday-night, Merseyside Premiership derby draw with Liverpool. He shone in another draw with Arsenal a few days on. Good omen for the World Cup?
Henry Davids It was one of those “were you there?” moments – the Cape Cobras batsman’s withering assault on the Warriors attack for a century (112 off 48 balls) and the best ever individual score in the Standard Bank Pro20 competition. Pure Kaboom …
Albie Morkel The first game in the one-day series in Australia, and South Africa were faltering worryingly in their chase. Enter our Albie: 40 not out off 18 eventful balls, four sixes … 1-0, goodbye Aussies!
