    Cricketer of the year.

    Player of the Year

    R Dravid (India)
    A Flintoff (England)
    Inzamam-ul-Haq (Pakistan)
    Jacques Kallis (South Africa)
    Adam Gilchrist (Australia)
    Glenn McGrath (Australia)
    Ricky Ponting (Australia)

    I'm sorry but how Shane Warne isn't in that group is completely beyond me.

    KP should win the ODI and emerging players awards IMO.

    If Flintoff doesn't win, the ICC should be shot. All of them.

    1st thought was Shane Warne to be honest, I feel a traitor.

    You should!

    Seriously though, the voting period was 1 August 2004 to 31 July 2005, and most of the Ashes came after those dates. He wasn't nominated for the same reason Strauss wasn't nominated in the Test Player of the Year - good performances, but not enough of them in the right period.

    Relevant period is August 04 - July 05. Warne's Ashes performances outside the Lords test don't count.

    I would love it if AB de Villiers would get Emerging Player of the Year but I know Pietersen will (and he fully deserves it too)

    If it's based on that period and not on The Ashes as well then, I'd go for McGrath, since he made his comeback to international cricket and dominated everyone, got back to the top of the rankings in both tests and ODIs, and averaged about 20 or less in every series in the relevant period.

    How is this a gimme for Freddie, by any stretch of the imagination? It doesn't encompass the Ashes, for England it includes the series against the Windies last year at home, the tour of South Africa, the home series against Bangladesh and the NatWest Series, and then the first test of the Ashes.

    Anyway, for the record, here are the stats for the players nominated in the period:

    R Dravid
    Tests - 841 runs @ 56.07, 4 fifties, 3 centuries
    ODIs - 722 runs @ 45.13, 8 fifties, 1 century

    A Flintoff
    Tests - 366 runs @ 30.50, 4 fifties, 0 centuries - 44 wickets @ 24.64, 0 5WH, 0 10WH
    ODIs - 464 runs @ 38.67, 2 fifties, 1 century - 25 wickets @ 23.12, 0 5WH

    Inzamam-ul-Haq
    Tests - 721 runs @ 65.55, 3 fifties, 3 centuries
    ODIs - 1036 runs @ 49.33, 12 fifties, 0 centuries

    Jacques Kallis
    Tests - 1478 runs @ 70.38, 8 fifties, 6 centuries - 20 wickets @ 41.15, 0 5WH, 0 10WH
    ODIs - 697 runs @ 41.00, 6 fifties, 1 century - 8 wickets @ 56.75, 0 5WH

    Adam Gilchrist
    Tests - 1003 runs @ 62.69, 3 fifties, 5 centuries
    ODIs - 871 runs @ 39.59, 5 fifties, 1 century

    Glenn McGrath
    Tests - 135 runs @ 15.11, 1 fifty, 0 centuries - 68 wickets @ 17.13, 3 5WH, 0 10WH
    ODIs - 8 runs @ 2.67, 0 fifties, 0 centuries - 38 wickets @ 19.61, 1 5WH

    Ricky Ponting
    Tests - 915 runs @ 70.38, 5 fifties, 2 centuries
    ODIs - 920 runs @ 35.38, 4 fifties, 2 centuries


    McGrath seems the obvious candidate to me, given his remarkable record and his comeback from cricket and acendancy to the top of both rankings when so many people wrote him off. If he doesn't get it, Inzy had a remarkable year and did good things with the Pakistani team, and then there's Flintoff and David who we both very good too, and Kallis as the highest runscorer by far in tests.

    It's all a bit harsh. Freddie scored 167 on the 30th July!

    Actually, by those stats, Freddie's probably the outsider. McGrath 1st, Kallis 2nd, Dravid 3rd for mine.

    Maybe next year, unless he has a severe drop in form/gets injured. Warne will be a contender too.
