    First time around, I'd say unlucky, she couldn't handle the conditions and just broke down.

    Second time, she knew she wasn't going to win, so she quit. That's disrespectful to the other competitors for a start, and just quite pathetic really.

    When she walked off the track she didn't look as if she was about to collapse did she? I don't think she even sat down.

    Naughty Paula.

    ICC Awards 2004

    Rahul Dravid is the ICC's player of the year


    September 7, 2004




    Rahul Dravid picked up both the Test Player of the Year, and the ICC Player of the Year at the ICC inaugural awards ceremony at Alexandra Palace in London. "It was a great honour, totally unexpected", said Dravid. "I was very surprised because a lot of people here have had a good year. I'm really happy, and honoured, to be selected."

    Earlier, the first award of the night, Umpire of the Year, went to Simon Taufel, the young Australian umpire. He received the award after receiving the most votes from cricket's Test captains and match referees.

    The next award, Emerging Player of the Year, went to Irfan Pathan, the 19-year-old Indian left-arm pace bowler. "I feel really good about this," said Pathan. "I have the confidence to do well in international cricket, but this award will boost my confidence even more. It will motivate me a lot, but it's a big motivation to play for India anyway. Every single match is a big challenge."

    Malcolm Speed, the ICC's chief executive, praised Pathan's winning of the award, saying: "On behalf of the ICC and the cricket community, we congratulate Irfan Pathan on winning the Emerging Player of the Year award. He is a highly gifted player, and along with the other nominees in this category, all have very bright futures in cricket."

    The New Zealand team won the Spirit of Cricket Award, while Andrew Flintoff, rounding off an excellent summer, scooped the one-day player of the year prize. Flintoff, 26, took 12 wickets at an average of 20.50, and scored 551 runs at an incredible 78.71 during the year-long voting period. Unsurprisingly, Flintoff was also part of the one-day team of the year.

    Ehsan Mani, the ICC's president said: "Andrew Flintoff has certainly had a tremendous year in 2003-04 and we congratulate him on winning this award, as One-Day International Player of the Year."

    Flintoff was his usual self-effacing self, saying: "If somebody had said three years ago that I'd be up here with Ricky [Ponting], and Jacques [Kallis], I probably wouldn't have believed them," said Flintoff. "My career over the past 18 months has taken a massive turn-around. I'm in a bit of a purple patch at the moment - not only in my cricket, but in my life."

    "My job's been made easier by the class players in the [England] side," he continued. "We're really just 11 mates who go out and play, and enjoy eachother's company, and enjoy eachother's successes."



    World one-day XI
    1 Adam Gilchrist (wk), 2 Sachin Tendulkar, 3 Chris Gayle, 4 Ricky Ponting (capt), 5 Brian Lara, 6 Virender Sehwag, 7 Jacques Kallis, 8 Andrew Flintoff, 9 Shaun Pollock, 10 Chaminda Vaas, 11 Jason Gillespie.


    World Test XI
    1 Matthew Hayden, 2 Herschelle Gibbs, 3 Ricky Ponting (capt), 4 Rahul Dravid, 5 Brian Lara, 6 Jacques Kallis, 7 Adam Gilchrist, 8 Chaminda Vaas, 9 Shane Warne, 10 Jason Gillespie, 11 Stephen Harmison.

    Two very fine players scooping awards there. And not a bad one-day XI at all. Lack of a specialist spinner may be a problem? Unless you count Gayle.

    It is looking more and more like Sven is out if England lose.

    Will that be a good or bad thing?

    Personally I would prefer Sven to stay.
