Who should succeed the retiring Graeme Smith as South Africa's Test captain?
David Warner quickly corrected a year destined for desperation, Graeme Smith was the gift that kept on giving, Cheteshwar Pujara answered India's call and AB de Villiers knew no bounds.
Alastair Cook was not allowed to ride on former glory, Steven Finn slipped down the pecking order entirely and Australia's indecision didn't do Phil Hughes any favours.
Cricket365 readers have spoken, with over 50,000 votes separating the great from the good among a select group of a dozen Test batsmen.
Dale Steyn, Vernon Philander, Faf du Plessis, Hashim Amla or AB de Villiers will be named South Africa's Cricketer of the Year on Monday - and, really, the winner of the prestigious accolade is all but a forgone conclusion.
