    Nick Knight has been impressive in this series, tailing off a bit at the moment but he's still one of the top run scorers in the series.

    Well I voted for Brett Lee because I think that he's done pretty well without McGrath an Gillespie (who really needs a hair cut!), although I still think he was down right rude to bump Tudor and the rest of the tailenders in the tests.:!(

    Yes Lee is an excellent ODI bowler right now.

    Most of them has had excellent performances so far, but Knight has been the most consistent one.

    Yeah, at least Knight scored a few, which can't be said for some of the England team!

    It's been a bit of a bummer that Blackwell hasn't scored the runs that were expected of him, but his bowling wasn't that bad and I hope Tres'll score in the next (most probably last!) of the VB finals.

    Even though they failed to get through, what about the possibility of Jayasuriya? consistently high scoring while he's seen the rest of his team perform fairly average..(being polite :P)

    Well Collingwood was left out at the beginning of the series and he's fought his way back into the side and has been very impressive. Not player of the series but still impressive. Bowling needs some more work though, 6 an over is too much.

    Jayasuria's been good yes, but Knight's been so consistant...

    Nick Knight. No contest in my book. Brett Lee has bowled well but with the pressure eased by in-form batsmen, he had the freedom to bowl fast and pick up wickets. Nick Knight has been on the back-foot (figuratively speaking) for most games England have played and he's delivered almost every time.

    A real disappointment must be Russel Arnold, though. He played SO well early on and it's a shame he didn't kick-on from the start he had because he looks quite good technically and is a fighter.

    While Knight has had a very good series, Matt Hayden has been just as good if not better.

    Knight 456 @ 57 (HS 111*) 3x50, 1x100
    Hayden 389 @ 65 (HS 98) 3x50

    Hayden just doesn't stand out because of some good batting performances from Ponting, Martyn and Lehmann. They may take votes away from him.

    The most outstanding individual contribution came from the blade of Sanath with his 'almost' triple tons. No doubt in my mind that he is the player of the series.

    By the way, shouldnt Darren Lehmann be included in the list ? Made a lot of noise both on and off the field!

    And also , how do i activate the bloody signature pic ??

    Isn't that the point though - Knight has been the only England batsman making runs, whilst for Australia it has been a team effort. OK Hayden was the best of the team, but Knight did it on his own.

    Well, if you look at it that way, then Jayasuriya should be Man of the Series because whilst England did get some good performances by other players on the odd day, SL nearly never had any other performer but Sanath.

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."

    Brett Lee won it. Probably helped by his exellent performances in the final's and the fact Knight faild both times.
