    KP gets my vote. Obviously McGrath had a great month, and I too believe Lee deserved a 'nomination' but KP stands out the most for me.

    it seems a lot of people are picking KP over Pidge, largely due to the fact that its the beginning of his career. What more could McGrath have done this month?!?

    For me:

    McGrath
    Kevin
    Bretty boy
    ...
    Bracken?

    Brett Lee must get a mention.

    I'm sure nobody expected him to get man of the series in the VB series
    Maybe because McGrath bowled better ?

    If by that you mean he won't average 150 forever - no, he won't.
    But if it means he'll not have any real success again - I think otherwise, myself.

    It doesn't make a difference if he can maintain it or not the fact is he played well in this particular month and only this month, if he has a poor series v Bangladesh he simply wont win the May award.

    why should someone new get it ahead of someone who is older simply because they have done it before, does it somehow lessen McGraths achievements

    Yes.
    McGrath has done nothing special, he's just done what we know he can do.
    Pietersen has never before had the chance to do what he's done.

    Whenever McGrath performs well its special. hes a once in a lifetime player, the fact that pieterson is new to the scene shouldn't really have anything to do with it.

    Why not?
    McGrath is a special ODI bowler, we all know that, we've known it for God-knows-how-long (no offence scripted) - so him bowling exceedingly well in ODIs is not something that's any news to us.
    And it's new stuff that always makes most impression on the human mind.

    I agree with you here Andrew, the fact his new shouldn't be a factor really. It should be performance based only. We know what McGrath can do, but at the end of the day if he has bowled the best in Feb then so be it and he should win.

    The major problem here is how do you compare a batsman to a bowler both in their own fields both have performed outstandingly but how do you cmpare 450 runs @ 150 to (I don't know the excate figures so making them up) 16 wickets @ 15.


    I would personally pick KP as IMO he has had the more consistant performances ( 3 100's and a 50) over the month where McGrath has had a couple of really good spells he took what 5/27 and 4/16? that was pretty much his main contruibutions.
