Ryan ten Doeschate, the Netherlands allrounder who played for Canterbury in the HRV Cup, has been declared the Most Valuable Player of the tournament.
Canterbury finished third in the HRV Cup with 22 points behind Central Districts and eventual winners Auckland, and ten Doeschate was one of their most consistent performers right through the tournament. He ended the tournament as their second-highest run-scorer with 284 from nine games at an average of 40.57 with a strike-rate of nearly 122. He was also their joint fourth-highest wicket-taker, with 12 wickets in nine games at an average of 17.66 and played a key role in their wins over Wellington and Otago early in the competition.
ten Doeschate will now play for Tasmania in the ongoing Big Bash series in Australia. He will also be the mainstay of Netherlands' batting in next month's World Cup in the subcontinent.
