Cape Town - Proteas batsman Theunis de Bruyn capped a dominant domestic showing in 2018/19 by completely dominating the annual Titans Awards at Serengeti Wildlife and Golf Estate on Tuesday night.

De Bruyn was head and shoulders above his peers in all formats, and his reward was a haul of five trophies, including the coveted 'Player of the Year'.

"We were thrilled when we got him back from the Knights, and he has most certainly made up for lost time. Theunis remains one of the very best players in South Africa, and performances like these for the Titans can only strengthen his claims for more Proteas caps, across all formats," Titans CEO, Dr Jacques Faul told the Titan's official website.

De Bruyn also won the 'Players' Player of the Year', the 'Most Valuable Player' gong, as well as the 'First-Class Player of the Year' and the 'T20 Player of the Year', having finished the CSA T20 Challenge as the leading scorer in the competition - despite only playing seven games.

There were also two awards on the night for Proteas T20 fast bowler Junior Dala, who won the 'MODC Player of the Year' award and was voted as the 'Fans' Player of the Year'.

Young spinner Gregory Mahlokwana won the 'Newcomer of the Year' award.

The night also provided an opportunity to say goodbye to long-serving captain Albie Morkel, who announced his retirement during the course of the season.
