    Kohli tried hard but he could not win it off Shane Watson.

    OK, they're back for 2014:

    Awards 2014 | ESPN Cricinfo

    I'll say:

    Test Batting: McCullum 302
    Test Bowling: Johnson 7/68

    Don't really care about the rest.
    5-0

    Morkel nominated with 3/63? Really?

    It was a good spell, but really...

    EDIT: This nomination gets odder when you notice they've overlooked the Steyn spell in the last innings of the same match.

    If anything other than McCullum's triple wins the batting award it'll be a complete travesty. Rahane at Lord's would've won any other year imo. The bowling one has lots of cracking nominees... Harris' no-knee spell, Dhammika's headingley 5-fer and Herath's 14 were awesome, but yeah I'd go for the Mitch 7/68 too.

    Test
    McCullum 302 (the double maybe a little unlucky not to get mentioned?)
    Mitche 7/68
    ODI
    Anderson 131* (but the 264 will win)
    Malinga 5/56 (Hazlewood not far off)
    T20
    Kohli or Hales, all pretty meh
    Herath by a country mile
    Direbirds FTW!

    Test ones are pretty obvious tbh, despite there being a few really good performances. McCullum's triple and Mitch running through the SA top order like he did were ATG performances.

    Morkel was scary during that though. It was really something else.

    Typical Morkel bowling a great spell for 3 fer. Glorified Ishant Sharma with a Styen and Philander next to him.

    Morkel averages 25 since 2013. In the same period, Philander has pretty much been a glorified Stuart Binny.

    Ishant has done decently too in recent times tbf. Maybe we're simply seeing the era of the unlucky, he's bowled better than his figures suggest, bowler.
