Cricinfo awards

It's now the end of January, so Cricinfo has published their nominees for the performances of the year in the three formats of cricket. I am also stoked that this year they have included the best performances in Women's Cricket too.

Read the Men's nominations and the Women's nominations. Its great to reminded of some of the great performances from the past year.

So my picks are below:

Women's Nominations:
Batting: Ellyse Perry's 93* which guided Australia to a tense 2 wicket win against South Africa.
Bowling: I'd pick Leigh Kasperek, her 3-13 guided NZ to a win over Australia in the World T20 cup.
Full nominations.

Batting: Kusal Mendis 176* against Australia in Sri Lanka. His innings turned the test in favour of Sri Lanka. Who won their first test against Australia in 15 years (and eventually their first ever series win, 3-0).
Hon Mention: McCullum's 54 ball hundred in his final test.
Bowling: My pick is Mehedi Hasan Miraz. His 6/77 guided Bangladesh to their first win against England.
Hon Mention: Kagiso Rabada his 5/92 turned the Perth test in favour of South Africa.  It was an impressive performance (and more notable after Dale Steyn was injured and took no further part in the series).
Full nominations

Batting: David Miller, his 118* guided South Africa to a successful chase of 372. Currently the second highest successful chase.
Bowling: Kane Richarson 5/68 v India. He removed Kohli and inspired another Australian victory.
Full nominations

Batting: I still find it hard to remember many T20 games, but its hard to forget Carlos Braithwaite's four sixes to win the World Cup final against England.
Hon Mention: Glenn Maxwell's 145* against Sri Lanka.
Bowling: I'd pick Mitchell Santner's  4/11 against India in the World T20 cup.
Full list of nominations.
