    The Allan Border Medal

    The AB medal, a celebration of Australia's best performed cricketer over the last 12 months, is on again tomorrow night.

    The voting period captures all games from last year's ill-fated Chappell/Hadlee series through to yesterday's game against India.

    For the first time in its eight year history, it's not being shown live and in full on Channel Nine, but it is live on Fox Sports.

    My tip: Matthew Hayden- although Brett Lee, despite missing the World Cup, could be a bolter.

    Who's your tip?

    What do you think of the AB medal?

    Hayden'll probably get it, but Lee deserves it.
    Or something.

    Hayden's a candidate for all three.

    He'll definitely get the ODI award, for excelling in NZ, World Cup and India.
    He's right up there for the Test award, 3 centuries in the India series, but realistically, Lee should get this one.
    The AB Medal is touch-and-go, only seven Tests were played so they'll be weighted very heavily.

    I'm really looking forward to the Gilchrist tribute, I wonder if he'll be making a speech.

    It'll be on Channel 9 from 10:30pm (for those in Sydney). It'll be on FOX Sports from 6:30pm.

    Check your local guides.

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    Well, you asked. Boring and uneccessary. That it's being broadcast at 10:30pm on Channel 9 tells you a lot about its ratings.

    Tips;

    AB Medal: Lee
    Test: Lee
    ODI: Haydos
    State: Noffers
    Young: Pommersbach

    Not at all looking forward to the Hayden acceptance speech, if it comes to that.

    He has a shocking habit of waffling on, and murdering phrases and analogies...carrot at the end of the rainbow etc etc.

    I wonder if Pomers is elligible for the award now....Remember he copped the ban halfway through the season? That was imposed by the Warriors rather than Cricket Australia so...Not sure there. If he doesn't get it, there are no others that really stand out. Phil Hughes maybe?

    I'll be watching it for exactly this reason!
