    Compton Miller

    So who gets MOTS?

    Smith is top run scorer but Root deserves it over him I'd say, even without my obvious bias

    If we look at the bowlers, Broad probably the best of the lot but not exactly had a great Test here

    Probably the first time since the award was introduced in 05 that the winner isn't completely obvious.

    I would guess Root though, unless Broad takes a hatful to prevent Oz chasing down the 36 we set them

    Broad and Rogers IMO.

    Or is the Compton Miller a separate thing to standard MotS stuff?

    Has to go to Root IMO. Broad hasn't been consistent enough over the whole series.

    Broad has been really good up until this match and Root has had just as a poor game here. I guess the thing in Root's favour is that in a series dominated by the ball he has been the best England bat by miles.

    The man who's had the greatest influence on the series, without playing a single game, is Rhino - if he'd partnered Johnson and Starc rather than Hazlewood I dread to think what might have happened

    Yeah Compton Miller is given to the overall MOTS. First won by Freddie

    I'm not necessarily saying they shouldn't, but it would be strange to give it to the batsman that was third highest scorer, no?

    How has he not been consistent enough?

    21@21.

    Everyone was saying he was the best bowler in the series BEFORE Trent Bridge.

    Australian would've still batted like complete amateurs in the 3rd and 4th tests.

    Only needed to make a difference at Cardiff in theory

    Obviously this assumes the series then proceeds as it otherwise has which wouldn't be the case but

    It has to be either Broad or Root. They didn't give the medal to Warne in '05 when he took 40 wickets and made 250 runs, so they won't give it to an Aussie here.

    Normally you'd give the award to a bowler, but I think Root has been the difference in this series.

    Root for me. In a series full of players that only showed up when the going was good, Root scored runs in both tough batting conditions and when England were behind in the game.
