'I never thought I would get so many awards in one night,' Kagiso Rabada

Fast bowler Kagiso Rabada has become the first player to scoop six awards at CSA's annual dinner, including the coveted South African cricketer of the year prize.

Rabada told Xolani Gwala that working hard is his secret to this great achievement.

He surpassed AB de Villiers and Hashim Amla, who had previously won five awards each.

Not only is Rabada the only player to notch up that many awards, but he is also the youngest to win the main prize.

The only major award Rabada did not win was the T20 cricketer of the year, which went to leg spinner Imran Tahir.

It's amazing to play with these guys because not so long ago I would watch them on the TV hoping to be amongst them. It feels like I'm dreaming.

Kagiso Rabada, cricketer

I never thought in my life I would get so many awards in one night. But it's a historical moment and I will cherish it.
