zaheer deserves man of the match award if he would not have taken vaughn`s wicket, match may ended as a draw even there is a chance of loosing the match india struggled to chase a target of 73 if they could put a target of 173 result would havebeen different

I dont think there is any thing to think about. He grabbed the wickets of 5 batsmen that too in from the top 7. Also none of the indian managed to hit a century. So Zaheer was left as the best and the last choice.

I think he deserved the man of the match award. He bowled really superbly with good consistency as well as good variation. Earlier we dont see Indian seamers changing angles to trouble the batsmen but now both Zaheer and RP Singh are bowling around the wicket to trouble the batsmen. It always happens that a batsman gets used to a left arm bowler bowling over the wicket but when he comes around the wicket, a whole lot of things change.. Zaheer used the angles to good effect in this test match. The wicket ideally suited his type of bowling. But he is now a more renowned bowler as he can now swing the ball both ways which was not the case earlier. All in all, a very good performance from Zaheer and also the other Indian bowlers who maintained the pressure at the other end. Hope they will continue their form in the next test as well to clinch the series.

Ofcourse he is.. coz he performed in both innings of the match.. This is a game won by the bowlers and by Zaheer in particular.. It was batsman friendly conditions, with vaughan and collingwood puttin up a good parternership.. Zaheer turned the match on its head.. No one ele can be given MOM.. it was the obvious choice..and was made.. cheers mate, Mike

yes.. it was a righ choice of giving him the Man Of The Match.. because he had taken many wickets... and what the above person(forgot name...sorry)said is right... Vaughan could have easily got if England won the Match... Thanks!

obviously he was the right choice for man of the match.. he showed everyone that he has class and very good temprament.. he can bowl in the right areas quiet often.. micheal vaughan was good but didnt get any support from rest of his batsmen...
