    Allan Border Medal

    Who do you all think will win the Allan Border Medal?

    IMO I think Ricky Ponting will win.
    My 2003 Australian Cricketers Rankings No.1's

    Test Batting: Mathew Hayden
    Test Bowling: Stuart MacGill
    ODI Batting: Ricky Ponting
    ODI Bowling: Brett Lee

    Ford Rules!

    Ponting has it easy.

    Ponting will win test player of the year over hayden than daylight


    ODI player is a little harder - Ponting will do well, i think Brett Lee might get this one, with Symonds 3rd - Clarke should also go pretty well (esp considering that he didn't play in the WC)


    Ponting will take out the AB medal pretty easily though

    Ponting.

    The only serious challenge can come from Hayden IMO.

    In their Lees last 30 ODI's hes averaged 19 with the ball taking 58 wickets with 2 5wi

    In Symonds Last 35 ODI's (back to start of teh WC) hes averaged 48 with the bat but 38 with the ball. so his batting vs Lees bowling directly.

    it will be pretty close but i think Lee has got him covered

    Id like to think Symonds was a batting allrounder... and 48 at his pace is most impressive...

    Ponting will win, but not as easy as you think.

    Everyone remember when we all expected Hayden to win? He was IMO the best player that year, but its a pity you don't get extra points for extra big scores.

    For example, Australia could be rolled over for 50 with Martyn getting the high score of 20. Then, none of the bowlers would get wickets, or bowl well.

    Martyn gets 3 points

    Next game, Hayden makes 140 not out, a brilliant innings.

    He gets 3 points

    See what I mean?

    Gilly won the ODI and overall AB Medal awards last year right? Who won the tests last year, I've drawn a blank. Just trying to refresh my memory.

    My predictions this year:

    AB Medal: Ponting
    Test Award: Ponting
    ODI Award: Symonds
    Young Cricketer: Clarke
    Domestic: Not too sure haven't paid enough attention recently.
