#HardusViljoen named first Sunfoil Sizzler for 2015/16

The Lions are the current title holders.  The Sizzler award is worth R15 000.

Viljoen, who made his debut for the Proteas in the third Test match against the England touring team at the Wanderers Stadium, has had a phenomenal domestic campaign taking 30 wickets in four matches.  This included back-to-back 10-wicket hauls in successive matches against the Dolphins and the Warriors.  Other players who came strongly into contention for the award were his Lions team mate, Dwaine Pretorius, Werner Coetsee of the Knights, Keshav Maharaj of the Dolphins and Tabraiz Shamsi of the Titans.

Cricket South Africa General Manager: Cricket Corrie Van Zyl says:  'Congratulations to Hardus on his Sunfoil Sizzler award.  His performance in taking back-to-back 10-wickets hauls is special and earned him a fully deserved call-up to the Proteas.  The results over the past six weeks have also shown that our domestic game is healthy, particularly if you look at the way players have taken the step up to international cricket when the opportunity has arisen.  Stephen Cook’s century on debut for the Proteas underlines this point.'

The South African Cricketers’ Association Most Valuable Player index (SACA MVP) is used as the measuring tool in determining the Sizzler of the Month.
