    I think people are just seeing what they expected to see with respect to Ponting.
    So what, the runs that he made before the final don't count for anything just because he scored one in the final, without his knocks prior to the final, we might not have even made it that far.

    You're comparing him to Shane Watson though, who scored runs before the final AND in the final.

    Why does it matter who gets the MOTS, Ponting was superb with the bat and as captain, Watson was superb with the bat and the ball. Who was the better player cannot be qualified as both excelled in their roles which were different in so many ways. Somehow I dont think either of them feel they deserved it more than each other and in their own way look at it more of a team achievment than an individual honor. Well done to both of them I say.

    Ponting scored runs in difficult batting conditions against West Indies and India, then he backed it up with a brilliant century against the Poms on a beautiful batting wicket, and to put it simply he hardly put a foot wrong before the final, and to add to that as Streetwise mentioned, he lead the side very well which would have also been considered.

    He scored extremely slowly against India, and in any case the innings was inconsequential, and the West Indies were crap. Even then, he failed to go on with it both times.

    Put it this way- I wouldn't trade Watto's century in the final for both of Ponting's group-stage knocks put together. When you throw his bowling into the equation it becomes a non-contest.

    Ponting just seems to get MOTM/MOTS when other more deserving players seem to miss out, happens loads. Watson should have got it.

    Slightly off topic and perhaps already mentioned, but surely Watto is now the only player in history to win 2 CT Final MOTM awards?
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Ponting is the only captain in history to win two consecutive CT's.

    TBF, apart from the Windies and us, has anyone actually played in two consecutive finals?

    Having a look at Pontings record I think you have mixed him up with someone else.
