West Indies batsman Roston Chase stole the spotlight at the West Indies Players’ Association/Cricket West Indies’ annual awards ceremony in Jamaica on Friday.
Chase was named Cricketer of the Year, Test Cricketer of the Year, Emerging Cricketer of the Year and Regional Four-Day Cricketer of the Year.
The 25-year-old only made his Test debut last July, but he has already shown his class in the 10 Tests he has played to date as he has scored 728 runs, which includes three centuries and three fifties, at an average of 48.53.
Chase has also had an impact with the ball as he has taken 17 wickets in the longest format.
Meanwhile, Test and ODI captain Jason Holder received the ODI Cricketer of the Year award, while all-rounder Andre Russell, who is currently serving a one-year ban, took home the T20 International Cricketer of the Year prize.
Elsewhere, Stafanie Taylor won three prizes as the women’s captain was named Women’s Cricketer of the Year, Women’s ODI Cricketer of the Year and Women’s T20 Cricketer of the Year.
