As with the every Ashes series since 2005 and the combined Australia - South Africa series of 2008-09, I am awarding points to the Best on Ground (BoG) on each day of this four Test series. Not sure of a title yet, but my points for the opening day of the First Test are:
3 pts - Ed Cowan,
2 pts - Umesh Yadav,
1 pt - Ricky Ponting.
