Imperial Lions Award Nominees 2021
The annual Imperial Lions Awards will be held on Thursday, 22 April 2021 at the Maslow Hotel, Sandton under the theme #SimplyTheBest. All Covid19 protocols will be adhered to throughout the awards ceremony.
With so much more than this season’s two trophies to honor, the Imperial Lions now announce a comprehensive list of 2020/2021 season nominees.
“Thank you to each and every player on the field and stakeholder off it for representing the Franchise with such great pride – I congratulate the nominees and wish them all well for the announcement at our special awards function but the awards on the night is not only about celebrating individual greatness but also about celebrating this great brand and the team, sponsors, support staff and all role players. The night will not only celebrate team Imperial Lions themselves but also an incredibly memorable and accomplished franchise period where we honestly gave it our all on and off field,” says a proud Lions Cricket CEO Jono Leaf-Wright.
Imperial Lions Head Coach Wandile Gwavu says that absolutely anyone can take it on the night;
“We’ve certainly had a memorable season, with so many players excelling right across the spectrum, making it a tough job for our panel. The 2020/2021 season will be remembered as one of absolute teamwork. When our batsmen failed, our bowlers stepped up. And always our fielding was top-notch. Thursday will be a proud evening of celebrations and I wish everyone the best of luck!”
