Cape Town - The Knights had their annual awards ceremony on Wednesday night at Tuscan Rose, in Bloemfontein.

Duanne Olivier, in absentia, won the big award as he was announced as the Knights' most valuable player. Rudi Second, also in absentia, celebrated one of the most successful seasons of his career by taking two awards home, the Sunfoil 4-Day Series Player of the year and Knights Player’s player of the year. 

Young Patrick Kruger also walked away with two awards as he was announced as the One Day Cup Player of the Year and winner of the Knights Fans Choice Award. 

This year the Knights introduced a new category, Knights Fans Choice Award. Fans sent in names of their players of the year and a fan with best motivation was selected to join the awards ceremony. This year’s winner was Shaheed George from Kimberley. Shaheed and a partner of his choice were brought to Bloemfontein and booked accommodation for the night, all expenses paid. Shaheed even had the honour to present the award to the player of his choice, Patrick Kruger.

Other winners of the night were David Miller (T20 Player of the year) and Mbulelo Budaza (Knights Most Improved Player of the Year).
