    MOTS contenders

    Thread for MOTS contenders. With SL out, Sangakkara is probably not in contention. Who are the contenders still?

    Starc
    Boult
    de Villiers
    Dhawan

    Who else? And who do you think will win it?

    BMac has a good chance if he keeps getting quickfire 50+ scores and NZ can win the thing. If not, then probably Starc if he can take another few wickets

    It'll pretty much be decided by who performs in the semis and the final, and very likely will go to someone on the tournament-winning team.

    Usually MotS is announced before the final.

    If you're talking about MOT pool games then Sanga and deVilliers would take my vote. Otherwise MOTS is too early to decide.

    Probably going to be one of AB, Shami, Boult or Starc.. one of the players from a team that reaches the final.

    I don't think mass of runs or wickets should be the major factor in deciding a MOTS. For example, I rate Vettori's performances right up there with Sanga, deVilliers etc. Vettori hasn't got many wickets but he has performed well in all games. If you look at the key game between NZ and OZ, Vettori's performance was crucial. Likewise BMac has not scored a lot of runs but the way he has played has had a devastating effect on the opposition.

    Starc has been unreal this WC.. Average of 8, is it? WTF? He is the leading guy for MOTS at the moment IMO, given that this has been a bat dominated tournament.

    Nah, I think it should be mass of runs or wickets.

    Loving how vettori is bowling but you can't argue against 16 wickets at an average of 8.5.
