    It depends on how the final games run out but Starc has been the man of the tournament in the sense you went in aware of him and came out completely transformed about his impact on cricket (at least I did). We all knew Sanga was a great. Starc's been a revelation.

    Also, not MOTS, but if Watson has a good final couple of games this will be the crowning achievement of his career, considering how little he's achieved to date.

    If we're talking ODI's then Watson has nearly 6000 runs at an average of 40.7 and a strike rate of 90. He also has 166 wickets at 31 each.

    Those figures are a pretty good achievement. Not to mention he played very well in the last World Cup Australia won.

    Yeah Watson has had a top ODI career. People even considered him in their ATXI.

    TPC rightfully coming into contention with three 50s on the bounce.

    Think it'll be a bowler though. Starc or Boult are my tips unless de Villiers goes de Villiers in the semi and final.

    Shows how important bowling still is.
    You know NZ has chased an awful lot and Aus had played one less game than the other teams?

    Also won Australia the 2009 champions trophy. Played a brilliant knock in the final.

    Corey Anderson?

    231 runs at 39 @ 110 SR
    14 wickets at 16 @ 15 SR

    Only weak point is his bowling economy.
