MSN prediction: Michael Clarke
Why: Clarke has simply been the best Test batsman of 2012. Amassing 1595 runs from just 18 innings with an astonishing average of 106.33, Clarke was lethal, brutal and sensational in almost every single game he played in the year. A batsman in the form of his life, it's hard to pick anyone else but him for the highest run-scorer spot.
