Jali and Shalulile have also been nominated in the MTN8 last man standing and Premiership players’ player of the season categories.
The players' player award is being contested by three Sundowns players as Themba Zwane is the third nominee.
Jali will also vie for the Premiership midfielder of the season and Nedbank Cup player of the tournament awards.
Sundowns received a total of 14 nominations and are followed by Cape Town City who have had a decent season, including being runners up in the MTN8.
