How to play a prot pvp pally in bg's?

Before the recent patches leading up to Cata, I understood paladins for the most part. Now I have no idea what is going on, or what my main abilities are, or how to use them in a good sequence.

In pvp, right now, what I do is use crusader strike a lot, then while crusader strike is on cooldown I use avengers shield, hammer of the righteous (i think), and then holy wrath as well, then usually back to crusader strike. I try to let myself get at least 2 charges of holy power before using hammer of the righteous too.

I see prot paladins topping the charts in damage sometimes and I can't get anywhere close to what they're doing. All the abilities seem so clunky, don't work together well, and have long cooldowns for pvp. I rarely see avengers shield as a proc either. I die very quickly. So how do u good bg paladins play?

I should say I am level 56 right now too, so maybe I don't have a key ability yet? I dunno.

Just posting if someone can look up my talents and whatnot if they need to.

At lower levels, I feel that HotR is better than CS at times even when it's not an AoE situation. Esp. vs other plate.

Preemptively taking lots of Tylenol, once you get past the first wave of headaches from ur forhead smashing the keys. It's easy.

Kinda like getting over that caffine headache you get on ur days off and no coffee, which i'm currenly going through.

I wrote a detailed Prot PVP Guide for 4.0, here's the thread:

I've been following Taugrimm's guide as I level my Pally. Granted I'm only 43 but I am constantly top on damage and healing.
