Sabir got the nod from legendary St George’s wicketkeeper Dennis Wainwright and his committee for a spectacular diving catch running around to his left, to dismiss Sinclair Smith in the second innings on Friday.

Before then, Treadwell Gibbons Jr might have been a candidate after claiming a succession of catches close to the wicket when St George’s enjoyed a rare moment of ascendancy on the first afternoon of the Annual Classic.

The 19-year-old former Warwick all-rounder, who would have been disappointed not to break into Cup Match as a colt this year, follows Bermuda team-mate Dalin Richardson as the second Somerset reserve in the past three matches to win the award.

The presentation was held this morning at the offices of Bermuda Healthcare Services, with the player’s father, Chris Sabir, accepting the $1,000 cheque on his behalf.

Dominic Sabir is in Jersey with the Bermuda team ahead of the third and final leg of the ICC Cricket World Cup Challenge League B.

Bermuda begin their campaign under new head coach Niraj Odedra on Thursday against Italy.
