South Africa is the cradle for many outstanding athletes. In particular, it has produced some of the greatest batsmen in world cricket. Many of them already completed their professional careers, while others still have many sporting achievements to reach.

All South African batsmen are united by a passion for cricket, a desire to win, and incredible skill. Despite their natural talent, they reached the heights in sports, thanks to the diligence and hard work. The result was nationwide love and recognition. Cricketers from South Africa have achieved considerable results:

  • The conquest of many trophies;
  • Set a lot of world records;
  • Known for their athleticism and the will to win.

Counting all outstanding athletes will take a lot of time. Let’s shorten the all-time list down to five. Each fan has their favorite batsmen, but the achievements of these athletes cannot be denied. Here are the top five of the Greatest SA batsmen of all time by Parimatch official website in Tanzania.

Herschelle Gibbs

It is an outstanding athlete who is popular far beyond his homeland. His career is like a roller coaster. But the world he will be remembered for his 175 in the famous 438-9 match against Australia. This game is still used as educational material for beginners.

Despite the eccentric tricks on the field and in life, this athlete has built an iconic career and has become one of the most popular cricket stars in CA. Now, this is a successful head coach of the Rotterdam Rhinos who transfers his knowledge and puts into practice tactics.

Hashim Amla

Hashim Amla is an iconic person for South Africa. He proved that even his awkward backlift would not be a problem on the road to sporting achievement. The fact is that since childhood, he trained on the cramped streets of his city. It affected his technique but did not affect sports achievements.

He is South Africa’s sixth-highest run-scorer in Test cricket and first South African to score 300. His speed and technique hit opponents on the field. Now he has completed his career as a player and is a batting mentor.

Jacques Kallis

Jacques Kallis is known far beyond its homeland. First of all, it became possible thanks to his achievements. He is famous for 10,000+ runs and takes 250+ wickets (both ODI and Test); He spent a very bright career defeating eminent rivals in the composition of Cape Cobras, Royal Challengers Bangalore, and other teams.

Despite a considerable number of injuries, this batsman was able to become an indispensable part of the team and show a good game. Now he has resigned and is engaged in advising teams.

Shaun Pollock

It is a famous player in the past and is now a commentator. He took 10th place in all-time best-ever bowler rating (LG ICC Ratings). Shaun repeatedly became the best player in the match and always surprised opponents with impeccable technique.

During his bright career, Shaun Pollock set four world records, led the national team to significant victories, and became an example for most modern professional batsmen. His domestic and international career has developed as successfully as possible.

Gary Kirsten

This cricketer has established itself not only as a first-class player but also as a successful coach. Throughout his career, Gary Kirsten has received many awards and has performed internationally. He is remembered for his match-winning 76 in the final innings. He excelled at home games and the international stage and always dedicated his victories to South Africa.

All of the mentioned players showed their talents and proved the right to be called stars of South African cricket. They are remembered and appreciated for their contribution to the development of sports and the demonstration of beautiful skills.

DR KASSER TEE

The Chartered Institute of Marketing, Ghana (CIMG), has launched the 33rd CIMG Annual National Marketing Performance Awards, which was held at the Coconut Grove Hotel in Accra. The event took a hybrid form with virtual and in-person attendees.

 

In his welcome address, the Registrar of the CIMG, Mr. Kwabena Agyekum said, “The success of these awards has gone beyond the event itself. Many businesses have now redeveloped their corporate strategies and significantly changed their business operating models, enabling them to be marketing-oriented by meeting the key requirements of market focus, integrated marketing, long term profitability, and customer and competitor orientation.”

 

In his opening remarks, the National Vice-President of CIMG and Chairman of the Awards Planning and Selection Committee, Mr. Theodore Osae, lauded the CIMG for its historic accomplishments in previous awards ceremonies.

“There is no denying that the scheme has incredibly evolved into what could be considered Ghana’s benchmark awards scheme. As we take delight in the successes achieved by our awards, I wish to boldly say that the CIMG takes pride in the several landmark accomplishments, which have greatly contributed towards improvements in organisational and professional performances, and especially, for practicing Marketers,” Mr. Osae said.

 

Being mindful of these achievements, the Institute has resolved to keep the stakes as high and as relevant as possible so that the standards, by which CIMG assesses individual and corporate performances, are not compromised.

 

The institute, for the past few years, has adopted the online system of completing the awards questionnaire by nominees as well as online assessment for the judges, who are chosen from various sectors of the corporate world. This set up has made it easy for CIMG to continue to drive a rigorous process whilst maintaining its stringent standards.

 

The Awards cover six major competitive areas, namely: Hall of Fame, Personality, Media and Marketing Communications organisations, Business organisations, Products, and Not-for-Profit organisations.

 

There is a non-competitive award category known as the CIMG President’s Special awards which are given to noticeable female and male achievers in any endeavour, or a business entity or product or service that has positively contributed to national progress.

 

Mr Osae indicated that “the judges and assessors for the year’s event will devote time and attention to ensure the success of the 33rd CIMG Awards, as it represents Ghana’s benchmark awards ceremony.”

 

The criteria for selecting the winners and benchmarking their performance will include:

  1. Marketing Metrics including awareness, numeric distribution (where appropriate) and others
  2. Marketing Innovation

III.       Technological Innovation

  1. Segmentation, Targeting and Positioning (STP)
  2. Social Impact
  3. Contribution to National Development

VII.      Public Image

VIII.     Success in the Market Place

  1. Market Share
  2. Customer Service Orientation
  3. Ecological and Ethical Issues

XII.      Competitor Orientation

 

Launching the awards ceremony, the National President of CIMG, Dr. Kasser Tee, urged organisations “to refrain from cutting marketing budgets in hard times, as effective deployment of marketing communications is necessary for stimulating demand for their products.”

 

Dr. Kasser Tee added that organisations must re-examine their marketing mix elements and ensure an optimal blend for organisational success. He explains that “in the same way that you cannot do without products, or pricing, or distribution, so must you not cut promotion or marketing communications budget. You must however spend in critical areas, using the most critical, influential and most cost-effective media vehicles. You must differentiate your corporate and product brands to enable them stand out in the midst of intense competition and low consumption.”

 

He further encouraged all corporate organisations “to pay attention to some of the very key pillars of marketing that guarantee effective performance, by way of growing market shares, revenues and profits in these difficult times.”

 

For 32 years, CIMG has consistently held the Annual National Marketing Performance Awards with the upcoming one being the 33rd edition
