    Test Batting: Clarke's 151 at Cape Town
    Test Bowling: Anderson's 5fer at Lords.
    ODI Batting: Ponting's century in the WC. (Its a gritty innings so gets points in my book for that.)
    ODI Bowling: Broad's 4fer against SA in the WC

    I also suspect the awards will end up with some strange results if the standard cricinfo commenter votes.

    Tricky.

    Test batting: Rahul Dravid 146* 4th test v England at Lords
    Test Bowling: Doug Bracewell 6/40 2nd test v Australia at Hobart
    ODI batting: Kevin O'Brien 113 v England in the World Cup at Bangalore
    ODI bowling: Stuart Broad 4/15 v SA in the World Cup at Chennai


    As defensive efforts go, Rahul carrying his bat for 146 in an innings where none of his team-mates made even 50 is pretty special.

    Bracewell's spell completely turned the game on its head after Oz looked home and hosed.

    O'Brien came in at 111/5 and effectively won the game for Ireland.

    Broad took the first two SA wickets and then returned to get the last two just as it looked as if the choke was off.
    Cricket Web's 2013/14 Premier League Tipping Champion

    - As featured in The Independent.

    "The committee discussed the issue of illegal bowling actions, and believed that there are a number of bowlers currently employing suspect actions in international cricket, and that the ICC's reporting and testing procedures are not adequately scrutinising these bowlers."
    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Replace the test bowling with Steyn's 5-fer against India at Cape Town and that'd be my list.

    How much weight should we give performances in close victories, as oppose to those performances that set up a great position straight away, or heroically defeated lone hands?

    I can't help but think it's an easy trap to fall into by mixing up how good the performance was with how good the match was.
    And we still haven't walked in the glow of each other's majestic presence.

    Test Batting: Michael Clarke 151 v South Africa at Cape Town
    Test Bowling: Dale Steyn 5-75 v India at Cape Town

    I've gone for Michael Clarke's 151 v South Africa at Cape Town as it was a difficult pitch to bat on against a very good attack. Looked like he was batting on a different pitch against a different attack to everyone else in the game.

    There were quite a lot of contenders for best bowling, which I think is a good sign, but I've gone for Dale Steyn's performance at Cape Town against India. He swung the ball and troubled all the batsmen on the 3rd day and I don't think his figures reflect how well he bowled. Doug Bracewell's 6-40 against Australia a very close second.

    ODI Batting: Kevin O'brien 113 v England at Bangalore
    ODI Bowling: Stuart Broad v South Africa at Chennai

    Kevin O'brien for his stunning knock against a good attack at practically 2 a ball, to win it for Ireland from a position of no hope.

    Stuart Broad gets the bowling honours for bowling England to victory in a low scoring thriller.

    Can't really think about the T20 performances (there weren't many this year.) JP Duminey at Cape Town against Australia or Kevin Pietersen against India at Kolkata. Ravi Bopara a good shout for bowling performance of the year against the West Indies at the Oval.

    Alright my turn

    Test batting
    Dravid 117.. He was one of the least expected batsman to score as much as he did this time around.. He went through alot to craft that innings..got hit with the ball so many times in a moviing track.

    Michael Clark 151.. it was an out of charactor innings by michael clark and that is why maybe most people will vote his innings as one of the best of the year.

    Winner
    Samarweera.. an Innings that inspired SL to a historic win. considering that he was dropped before the series unfairly.. what a way to come back to the side.

    Test Bowling

    Ashwin 6-47.. on a debut and when ur team is down and out almost 100 runs behind. To inspire that kind of performance.. it needs at least a mentioning somewhere.

    Winner
    Vernon Philander 5-15.. your team gets out at 96 runs barely missing a follow on.. You strike back by getting the opposition out for under 50.. sounds almost unreal.

    ODI Batting

    Winner
    Rose Taylor 131*... If you would have told me that NZ would pass 200 runs during the 30th over of this match, I would have laugh out loud.. yes he may have been dropped and got lucky afew times but the fire work that he produced afterwards was brutle. He single handedly finished, killed and destroyed the career of the fastest bowler of the world. Shoaib akhtar was still capable of bowling over 90 mph so you guys know.

    ODI bowling.
    Shahid Afridi 5-35
    defending a total of 200 and when the opposition is only 155 for 4 with two set batsman in the crease. he bowled his team to victory single handedly after batting incredabilly..
