    Clark.

    The pitches have been largely benign, and therefore he falls in ahead of Ponting who has been imperious (especially when the Series was still alive) and totally driven.

    Do the coaches of each team still pick 1 man from each side to have 2 men of the series? or will it be just 1 man picked via a commitee or something?

    Anyway...

    Australia: Clarke
    England: Pietersen

    Obviously Clarke to be MOS if only 1 is picked.

    Clark has not bowled badly in the entire series. No-one has ever done that before in a 5 Test series.

    Sho-in for mine.

    Undoubtedly Stuart Clark.

    Clark > McGrath. Discuss.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    They pick a MOS from each team, but then give the Compton-Miller medal to the single overall MOS.

    Warne 25 3 74 0

    Not saying he bowled badly, but his figures aren`t great. Whereas Clark has good figures for all 10 times he`s bowled. Incredible.

    Monty has the best average of any bowler for England. Shows how badly our Pacers have been!

    Ponting and Clark are very close with Ponting perhaps shading it for mine, though it does depend a little bit on what happens tomorrow. There's still a chance for either one of them to put in a good performance.

    Anyway, as I said in the 5th test thread the other day, Clark has been absolutely remarkable and has bowled well in every match, but generally the match defining spells have come from other bowlers. Clark's been a rock and taken plenty of key wickets, but it was Warne who turned the game in Adelaide and Melbourne and McGrath in Brisbane. Clark's not really dominated with the ball at any point to quite the extent that Ponting did with the bat across the first two tests. Obviously though, Clark has been good in every match while Ponting did nothing of note in Melbourne in his one chance.

    If Australia are set a decent chase of 100+ tomorrow, I have a feeling that Ponting might take control and take Australia to the win, which will probably seal the MoTS award for him. If Clark grabs a few tomorrow and it ends quickly he might take it though. It's that close.

    Can never beat a pair
