    Well he MoTS will have to be Siddle you'd reckon, after tomorrow's 266*(88) and 9-16 (4.1) to get us home by 18 runs with an over and a half to spare....

    As much as I appreciate the efforts of Alastair Cook, he has been magnificent, my MOTS would have to be James Anderson. Jimmeh has been simply superb. He's led the attack brilliantly, taken key wickets and just generally bowled beautifully all series. I wouldn't be at all bothered if Cook gets it, but for me, it's Jimmy all the way.

    Jimmy has played a phenomenal series, and I usually vouch for the bowlers in these things. But Cook has gone so far above and beyond what was expected of him, that's what clinches it for me.

    Warne and Botham are both saying it should go jointly to Jimmy and Cook

    It's gone to Cook. Fair decision I guess, he did have an amazing series. Shame they couldn't share the award with Jimmeh.
