Habitual run-getter Hashim Amla won as many as four awards including being adjudged as the cricketer of the year in the Cricket South Africa awards on Monday.

A veteran of 70 Tests and 76 ODIs, Amla was also named the Test cricketer of the year, South Africa fans' cricketer of the year and a triple century - first by a South African - brought him the KFC 'So Good' award. The awards were based on performances in Tests, ODIs and T20Is played between 1st May 2012 and 30th April 2013.

While AB de Villiers (ODI cricketer of the year) and pacer Dale Steyn (T20I cricketer of the year) were the other major winners, the ceremony was mostly about the 30-year-old Amla who currently averages above 50 in Tests (52.11) and ODIs (54.85).
