Can we make sure this is a populist poll, no point otherwise.

In terms of impact on the outcome, Bairstow - obvious.

If it's become an award for entertainment as implied by the announcer then, equally obviously, Stokes.

Not really. The man in whose slipstream he played nicely had a larger impact. A supporting role should be seen as just that. His second innings contribution wasn't as important as it could have been as rain and bad light meant that even had he been out first ball it was highly unlikely play would have lasted long enough for ZA to have got near England. Sorry to pee all over your White Rose parade.

Come on, get the poll up, let's see how many believe MotM was anyone other than either Stokes or Amla?

I think only one will vote against those two and we all know who that is.

If you're giving it to someone other than Stokes, you can't justify giving it to Bairstow instead of Amla.

The whole Test was played in the shadow of Stokes' innings, though.

That is democracy for you. There are always contrarians (and the lunatic fringe), but it sort of works out.

I don't remember Bairstow being dropped as often as Amla was.

I don't think I've ever seen a poll shoot so far up in one direction.


Make up your own Harry Styles joke there. For legal reasons I couldn't possibly comment.

Democracy is for idiots who prefer to be seen to think like everyone else rather than do what is actually right. The labour party tried it and ended up with Jeremy Corbyn.

I liked this bit from the online dictionary:

Explains a lot.

Plus Stokes, blindingly obviously.

Probably because with a fairly obvious conclusion most of the time you wouldn't bother with one.

In a game where there were lots of runs, few bowlers stood out and he made the biggest and quickfire double, it's a no brainer.

I was tempted to play devil's advocate and vote "anyone else" with Amla and others who still had to make their runs under more pressure than Stokes was under bearing in mind England weren't 600 runs behind when they were batting...........

Maybe I should change my vote , that is a valid point
