    Ricky Ponting and His Man Of the Match Award-Flawed Process

    Once again ponting gets man of the match,
    hayden deserved it more and you can tell that from their batting scores

    Australia innings (50 overs maximum) R B 4s 6s SR
    ML Hayden b Vettori 117 111 15 0 105.40
    RT Ponting c Fulton b McMillan 111 122 8 1 90.98

    This seriously puts this sort of process into question
    He was also chosen player of the year in tests which many think was flawed
    at this rate even if he hits a 50 and another player hits a 100 then he will still
    get man of the match
    and what about oram?
    he took his team so close and he deserved it more than ponting too
    heres orams stats

    New Zealand innings (target: 344 runs from 50 overs) R B 4s 6s SR

    JDP Oram not out 101 72 4 6 140.27

    Probably not. Either that or he blinked when Hayden was dropped 3 times whilst Ponting was perfection in an Aussie kit.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    Ponting's innings was much better and much more convincing really. Hayden was dropped three times - twice off very simple chances before he got to 5. He didn't look at all in control until he got to about 60 odd. It was a good innings no doubt - a hundred is a hundred. But Ponting's was by far a better innings overall and he thoroughly deserved the award.

    Sure, fair effort getting up at 4am. Anyways, the MOM award never holds that much meaning really. It's arbitrary and shouldn't be looked into that much. I would have liked to see Oram get it tonight but Ponting still deserved it for a wonderful knock. Certainly doesn't deserve a thread for something this trivial.

    Forget about umpiring controversies, drug cheats, chuckers, racism and quotas. Fight the real enemy - Man of the Match adjudicators.
