    Bracewell should have been given the Man of the match

    It was a great knock by Warner, but IMO bracewell deserved it more. They should have atleast shared the award

    It is the problem when the watching Australian public gets to vote for the Man of the Match.

    I bet Cricket Australia wont try that during the India tour. Indian public will make sure we win all 4 MoM awards even if the result is 4-0 to Oz.

    It's quite obvious, Australians don't love cricket. Australians love Australian cricket.

    Yes of course you can, I wasn't having a dig at the Ausse public, I was just being specific to this Test.

    Totally agree but C9 viewers loved that knock of Warner.

    Apply such rule in India and no foreign player would get the MoM award, EVER!

    I'd have given it to Warner. Lots of bowlers took wickets but only one batsman scored runs.

    And quite frankly, the fact the voting was open well before the end of the test with the result possibly going either way is equally to 'blame' for the support for Warner.

    Actually agree with Uppercut here too. Making a hundred on that deck was something pretty special from Warner. Only the 6th man to carry his bat in the 4th innings. I don't begrudge him MOTM.

    Yeah, would rate a bowler getting on a roll below having to bat and change tempo like Warner had to, especially as the rest of the side crashed around him. But for bugger-all runs, it was a match-winning knock.

    Don't think anyone disagrees that Warner's knock was an excellent effort on that pitch, but there's only one man that changed the match entirely around and ultimately led his side to victory, Warner couldn't manage that.
