there seems to be an absurdly large number of nominees

I think Onions has been entered into the cricketer of the year category more for comedy value rather than anything else.

That's certainly an explanation. It's very hard to see why he'd be in there for any other reason, to be honest. I know the England selectors are barking but leaving out a potential cricketer of the year for two tests in a series would be rather absurd were he a remotely sensible nominee.

The nominations were made by a five-member selection panel headed by former West Indies captain Clive Lloyd and included former cricketers Anil Kumble of India, Mudassar Nazar of Pakistan, Bob Taylor of England and New Zealand's Stephen Fleming.

August 13th 2008 until end of August this year.

From SA I would have thought Duminy or Parnell would be good emerging nominations.

I'd like Strauss to win, but Samaraweera has made more runs than Strauss from fewer matches at an average of 83.30, and there is the added factor that he was the most badly injured player in the terror attack in Lahore and has come back strongly since recovering.

As to Emerging Player of the Year: Ian Bell won this award three years ago and we're still waiting...

Some just take longer than others to fully emerge.

I assumed Lily Allen was on the judge's panel.

Smith has expressed surprise that neither VDM or Parnell have been nominated for the emerging player award and that they had fewer than expected nominees. I have a feeling that Duminy was nominated last year because of ODI performances so players probably can only be selected once.



"When I look at the achievements we have achieved over a period of time I am obviously surprised that we don't have more nominations, particularly in the limited-overs format," Smith told the SABC

On second thoughts I would give ODI cricketer of the year to Sehwag. An average of 60 at a strike rate of 127 is staggering.

In fairness, that's hard to argue with.

I had forgotten that Duminy had debuted in ODIs ages ago so maybe he's not emerging any more. I didn't realise he'd already been nominated as well.

I'm sorry, I didn't realise we were only allowed to consider the batting candidates for player of the year?

Overall Player of the Year- Mitchell Johnson (even with the disappointing Ashes he has had a big year- it says a lot that the focus was on him throughout the Summer)
Test Player of the Year-Dale Steyn (best player for best team)
ODI Player of the Year-Ajantha Mendis or Umar Gul
T20- Dilshan or Afridi
