    Player of the Year awards

    Who ought to win?

    Bear in mind its for the period 1 August 2004 - 31 July 2005

    NOMINATIONS

    Player of the Year
    # Andrew Flintoff (England)
    # Inzamam-ul-Haq (Pakistan)
    # Jacques Kallis (South Africa)
    # Adam Gilchrist (Australia)
    # Glenn McGrath (Australia)

    Test player of the year
    # Adam Gilchrist (Australia)
    # Inzamam-ul-Haq (Pakistan)
    # Jacques Kallis (South Africa)
    # Glenn McGrath (Australia)
    # Shane Warne (Australia)

    One-day player of the year
    # Andrew Flintoff (England)
    # Adam Gilchrist (Australia)
    # Brett Lee (Australia)
    # Kevin Pietersen (England)
    # Andrew Symonds (Australia)

    Emerging player of the year
    # Aftab Ahmed (Bangladesh)
    # Ian Bell (England)
    # Dinesh Karthik (India)
    # Kevin Pietersen (England)
    # AB de Villiers (South Africa)


    For me, I reckon Player of the year and Test player of the year ought to be split betwen Kallis and McGrath, with KP either ODI or Emerging Player of the year

    I reckon, really, de Villiers should win Emerging Player (a notoriously meaningless award in any context - ICC or other), Kallis Test Player Of The Year, Pietersen ODI Player Of The Year and, well, anyone's guess for Player Of The Year. Kallis' ODI form has been poor in 2005, Flintoff's hardly played and hasn't exactly been especially impressive when he has, and Gilchrist has had 4 superb Tests and 5 poor ones.
    So really it probably should be McGrath.

    Indeed maybe Warne is more deserving than Kallis of Test Player Of The Year.
    And given his massively larger Box-Office appeal he'll very, very probably win it.

    i would be very suprised if warney doesnt win it, and if anyone other than de villiers wins emerging player its pretty criminal as well imo.

    What's the point in the cut-off period? Big media OG if a non-Ashes-player wins a biggie.

    I think the cut-off period is the only thing that prevents a Flintoff clean sweep.

    I think he should retain the ODI award, but probably won't win the other 2.

    Question is, will the Ashes be in people's memories come the 2006 awards?
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    gOOD POINT mARC, I WAS WATCHING THE CRICKET SHOW LAST NIGHT AND aLAN bORDER WAS SAYING THE SAME THING..oops sorry for yelling, he was saying the test matches from ashes are only including the first test match that australia won and that was the cut of point.Gives gilchrist some hope then.Be a shame if Flintoff doesnt win it though as he has been the best in world cricket IMO,but it dont always work that way does it?

    I can't see how Fred-o deserves the ODI award over KP. 464 runs at 38 compared to 786 runs at 87; even adding his bowling -- 25 wkts at 23 -- I can't see how he deserves it.

    ABDV and KP should be head-to-head as emerging player -- if KP gets the ODI award, ABDV gets the emerging player award, otherwise its a toss-up.

    For the test and overall awards, I still think Kallis and McGrath split them; Fred-o in the cut-off period wasn't up there, and Warne... I have the feeling people are thinking about his exemplary Ashes series. What did he do in the qualifying period that makes him the best?

    Or you could turn that argument on its head and say that if Ashes performances dominate the decision-making the ICC has made a mockery of its own rules about the cut-off.

    FWIW, the judges are the 10 Test captains, 15 umpires and referees, and 25 veteran players and journalists; At least there's more chance they'll be aware of the cut-off than a popular vote of fans would be.

    Only two that had a chance were Vettori for ODI player and Marshall for emerging.
