Ryan ten Doeschate, the Netherlands allrounder, has been named the ICC Associate and Affiliate Player of the Year for the third time in four years, and for the second year running. ten Doeschate was chosen ahead of Afghanistan allrounder Hamid Hassan, and the Irish duo of Paul Stirling and Kevin O'Brien, both centurions in the 2011 World Cup, during the awards ceremony in London.

ten Doeschate, 31, played six ODIs in the voting period - August 11, 2010 to August 3, 2011 - all of them in the World Cup. He scored two centuries and a half-century, and averaged 61.40 for the period with a strike rate of 89.24.

"I'm really sorry I couldn't be there tonight," ten Doeschate said. "It's obviously a great privilege to win this award and I'd like to thank all the coaches and my team-mates who have helped me during what has been a very good year for the Netherlands cricket team."

ten Doeschate also was the first Associate player to win an IPL contract. He was bought at the 2011 auction by Kolkata Knight Riders.

    I am surprised that Ryan ten Doeschate has been selected ahead of Stirling. He has not played any international cricket since worldcup. Whereas Stirling has been scoring centuries after centuries.

    Congrats to both RtD and Trott on their achievements. Both alumni of Western Cape Universities (RtD - UCT and Trott - Maties)!

    @Kris Ballantyne as you say this is the Associate/Affliate player of the year award, therfore it should be awarded to players based on performances for associates/affiliates and not for a few glamour ties in World cups and slogging a few runs for Esseex in CB40 and T20 matches, otherwise why not consider Arul Suppiah as well? He plays his cricket for Sommerset in Div1? The consistant OUTSTANDING associate/affiliate performances have come from Hamid Hassan and probably Paul Stirling runs him a close second. Giving the award to RTD is a slap in the face for the folks who turn out match after match for their countries. I am not tryng to say that RD is not a class player only that he does not play enough matches for Holland. And for those who think he is Englands missing player he has already said he would refuse, now if SA came in for him he would jump at the chance! @Santosh Choudhury SRT does not play for an associate/affiliate nation does he?

    Surely JonathonJosephs that comment was written whilst drunk. Bopara scored a brilliant 96 against India 2 days ago. Tendo wantsto play for South Africe if anyone as that where he was born. He stated that in an interview last year before he was injured. Great player. Achieves big for a player in a Netherlands side who don't usually play Test Nations

    @Kris Ballantyne: O'Brien would have been my choice, but ten Doeschate is a worthy winner, congratulations to him

    Where is sachin tendulkar.. who take india world cup final and one of the real legend of cricket... and also best avg. and strike rate.. ////?????

  • Rar0 on September 13, 2011, 9:19 GMT

    He is an awesome, consistent player who thoroughly deserved it. He first caught my eye playing for Canterbury in the New Zealand domestic competition (I was gutted when I found out he was not a kiwi)... But a great player who is much more consistant and talented than the other nominees. Well done to him!

  • Rahibb on September 13, 2011, 6:44 GMT

    A disappointing evening for Hamid Hassan. He was well deserved person for the award......... He took 61 wickets in 10 1st class matches against Scotland, Netherlands, Ireland, Canada, Kenya He is the key player of Afghan cricket . He should have considered by the selectors all over world for county. He has proved him self on every trough .

  • on September 13, 2011, 4:13 GMT

    Hamid Hassan was deserving this award,hence he havent got any international support,this shows the lack of intrest the ICC do among associates and affilites, No worry Hamid Hassan,this award is meant nothing then a simple piece of cup. U are the Super STAR OF AFGHANISTAN.. Keep the RISE oon...

  • johnathonjosephs on September 13, 2011, 0:02 GMT

    Truly class player. Shame that Netherlands cricket does not get much international venues. I feel this is the missing allrounder England need to have the ultimate team. Problem is -> who to drop? If there is an injury of Morgan/any batsman/bowler, I wouldn't hesitate to give this man a call up instead of Ravi Bopara. Bopara is yet to prove himself in the international arena, but Doeschate in the few matches, has already proved himself

    Newsflash, Irish supporters - this is Associate Cricketer of the Year, not performance of the year.

    Ryan ten Doeschate would walk into just about any international side in the world, Kevin O'Brien hasn't even been stolen by England, a nation infamous for stealing players from neighbouring countries. O'Brien's century was impressive but one century does not make up the huge gulf in class between a glorified slogger who bowls medium pace and a guy who is legitimately one of the strongest all rounders in one day cricket.

  • on September 12, 2011, 22:29 GMT

    I am a Pakistani supporter , this guy caught my eye during the World Cup. He seems to be a class act.Its a well deserved award.

  • on September 12, 2011, 21:27 GMT

    How the heck did he get it again??? Stirling or Hassan is a much better choice. He hasn't even played for the Dutch since the WC (I don't think). This shows, the lack of interest, the ICC show in the Associate nations

  • bigdhonifan on September 12, 2011, 20:45 GMT

    May England will Pick him Soon!! England wont have English players.. well done Ryan!!!

  • on September 12, 2011, 19:30 GMT

    ten Doeschate deserved it, its a great honor and privilage to be judged as ICC Affiliate player of the year. Hope he does well for his country and intern for cricket as well.

  • Jonah58 on September 12, 2011, 19:07 GMT

    So RTD played a WHOLE 6 games for Holland during the qualifying period, all in the world cup, all the matches were lost. How does that deserve an award? Fantastic choice.(not) Perhaps the award could have gone to one of the other 3 who play for their teams outside of the glamour world cup matches? Personally speaking as an Irish fan I think perhaps Hassan just beat Stirlo for the award in my ideal world.

  • on September 12, 2011, 19:04 GMT

    While he has had a good 12th months in his handful of ODI's and particularly with Essex in T20 cricket, I can't but be slightly baffled. I would have had him as third choice. Kevin O'Briens century against England is worth more than ten Doeschates efforts, but I'd have given first place to Hamid Hassan. Remember Doeschate is a professional county cricketer, expected to perform. Hassan has no professional support but still managed an exceptional 12 months. Take the 2009-10 Intercontinential Cup, where he took 43 wickets at 19.18, and the current 2011-13 Intercontinential Cup where he has already taken 10 wickets in just a single game at 8.50. He's been equally impressive in ODI's as well. Odd decision.
