    Angelo Mathews earns four major SLC Awards

    October 20, 2015

    Angelo Mathews' excellent form with the bat and consistent performances with the ball, have earned him four major Sri Lanka Cricket awards, including his second successive Cricketer of the Year prize. He also won the Test batsman trophy, and the ODI batsman and allrounder awards.

    Mathews' stretch of good form has extended into 2015, but he received his prizes for last year's work. The period under consideration was January 2014 to December 2014, in which he hit 1160 Test runs at 77.33 and 1244 ODI runs at 62.20. He claimed 18 ODI wickets at 36.16 during this period.
    Rangana Herath won the Test bowler prize for a 2014 that brought him 56 wickets at 27.17. 
    Ajantha Mendis was the Best ODI bowler for his 38 wickets at 21.63.
    Kusal Perera and Nuwan Kulasekara won the T20 batting and bowling awards respectively. Kusal also won the Emerging Cricketer of the Year award, having recently flourished in ODIs and made a bright start in Tests.
    Mathews could not budge Kumar Sangakkara's six-year grip on the People's Choice Award, which was voted through online and text message polling. However, Mathews' award for Test batsman of the year broke Sangakkara's five-year streak for the award. Both Sangakkara and Mahela Jayawardene were in attendance.
    Chamari Atapattu won the batting prize in the women's category, with Inoka Ranaweera and Eshani Lokusuriyage taking the bowling and allrounder awards. 
    The visiting West Indies team was in attendance, along with support staff. Clive Lloyd, Curtly Ambrose and Richie Richardson all presented awards.
