Unlike captaincy in many other sports, leading a cricket team requires a unique blend of intellect, charisma, fortitude and respect. The Lord's Taverners has identified five criteria as central to being a great captain:
Leadership – high quality performance and conduct on the field
Teamwork – build team spirit and instil work ethic in a team over a season
Motivation – encourage and get the best from each player in the team
Inspiration – leading by example
Fair play – always lead a team according to the spirit of the game
The Captain's Award acknowledges cricket Captains under 18 years old who have displayed outstanding examples of these five pillars of captaincy.
Applications for the Captain's Award must be made by an adult (teacher, coach, or parent). Details of the captain (name, date of birth and club/school played for) should be emailed to us. A personalised certificate will be emailed to the applicant completely free of charge.
The Five-fer Award, which is endorsed by the 22 fast bowling legends who attended the Macquarie Fast Bowlers Dinner, acknowledges the achievement of young bowlers (under 18) taking their first five-wicket haul in an organised cricket match.
Nominations must be made by an adult. Details of the five-fer (player's name and date of birth, date of game, club played for/against) should be emailed to us. A personalised certificate will be emailed to the applicant completely free of charge.
By applying for these awards you are agreeing to receive email communications from the Lord's Taverners unless specified otherwise in your applications.
