    Doug! Really happy to see that.

    Great to see O'Brien get the award too, although that was the obvious choice.

    Meh, Wahab Riaz should have got the ODI bowling, seems like they don't really put much importance on WC performances.

    Yeah, genuinely awesome innings. It would've been great no matter who played it, but for a chap from an associate it was unworldly.

    Bracewell's spell ranks pretty high in the awesome stakes too. Both got my votes anyway.

    Pleased for young Braces. Some consolidation for being robbed of the MOTM award in Hobart too.

    I'd give it to:

    Hashim Amla 196 @ Perth
    Monty Panesar 6 for 81 @ Mumbai

    Some great innings last year. Would probably go for KP at Mumbai or Mehala at Galle. Can't decide for now.

    When KP returns he will be the banana..

    KP at Mumbai. Faf's was just inspirational and Amla's at Perth was sheer dominance, but KP's was something else. You should not have been able to play that innings on that pitch.

    That's an amazing group of batting nominees. I don't expect them to go anywhere near winning against some of those monster knocks, but thrilled to see Taylor and Williamson get mentions - two of NZ's best Test innings in a long time, so it's great to see them get that recognition.

    I think votes for KP innings will be divided, so most probably Amla at Perth or MJ might win.

    Mahela's knock was bleeding awesome, in fairness. Wouldn't begrudge him the knock
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.

    Amla's 196 at Perth in the batting performances for me. SA came in as a suspect No. 1 against a confident and building Australia. Australia scored more runs losing five wickets in the match than SA did losing fifteen in the first test and the second test headline screamed 'South Africa - the best test nation in the world - survives against Australia'.

    Two low scores first up in the third test, Virus goes early in the 6th over at 28 and game on. After that, In 200 balls, Amla puts Australia out of the series that they've been on the prowl to win for the last 2 weeks.

    Great innings regardless but considering the context, absolutely glorious.

    KP's Mumbai heroics and Mahela deserve a mention too.

    5-30 at Lord's in the bowling performances list. Have always been a massive fan of him for a while but this is the spell that really sold Vernon for me. No team ever could have stopped him from getting wickets that day. Fairly comfortably his best performance so far IMO.

    I went with Faf (although there were plenty of good batting performances), and Rehman for Tests.
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.
