who do you think will take the trophy?

Afridi tops Player of Tournament table, Yuvraj lone Indian

Johannesburg, Sept. 23 (PTI): Shahid Afridi leads the race for the Player of the Tournament award but tomorrow's final of the Twenty20 World Cup gives Yuvraj Singh, lone Indian in hot pursuit, yet another chance to pip the Pakistani to the honour. Afridi has so far polled seven votes to top the table, but there are still four players -- including three of his teammates Misbah-ul-Haq, Younis Khan and Shoaib Malik-- who can catch up with him. Yuvraj, along with Stuart Clark, Sanath Jayasuriya and Morne Morkel, has garnered six votes. Afridi is the joint leading wicket-taker - alongside Australia's Stuart Clark - with 12 victims, and has also scored rapidly whenever he has reached the batting crease, making 91 runs from just 45 balls faced. In contrast, Yuvraj's 134 runs came from just 57 balls, giving him the best batting strike-rate of any player with 75 runs or more 235.08 runs per hundred balls. His total includes 12 sixes, seven during his 16-ball innings of 58 against England that included six maximums in one over from Stuart Broad, and another five in his 70 from just 30 deliveries against Australia in the semi-final. Malik (187) and Misbah (175) are among the leading run-scorers in the tournament and only Matthew Hayden of Australia, with 265 runs, has more than Malik's total. Younis' total of 103 runs includes 51 against Sri Lanka, part of a fourth-wicket record stand of 101 with Malik. Younis has also taken six catches, a mark only AB De Villiers of South Africa, among all outfielders in the tournament, can match. The votes for the player of the tournament award are cast by the commentators for the host broadcaster, ESPN STAR Sports. They nominate the player of the match for each game on a 3, 2, 1 basis, with three votes for the top performer, two for next best and one vote for the third choice. Those votes are then added together to produce the player of the tournament standings. All matches, including the final, count towards those standings and the player with most votes at the end of the tournament receives a superb trophy. If more than one player finishes tied at the top of the list then the player with the most Man of the Match awards (three votes) is declared the winner.

In that case, Yuvraj's chances are brighter, for he has two man of the match awards so far (against England and Australia ) while Misbah (Australia), Younus (Sri Lanka) and Afridi (Scotland) have one each.

Shahid Afridi deserves it more than anyone...he has received wickets during every match with his spin bowling!!!...hes an all roudner but still he has beaten many full time bowlers in receiving a lot of wickets!..

other than him i think SHoaib Malik deserves it because now hes the hightest run scorer with the bat(after Aus left since Hayden was leading before), he has led the Pak team from the front..and he has captained brilliantly and batted very well in all major matches!

but since Afridi is in the lead..Afridi deserves it hands down! Smile
