    Andy Flower only got 39% though? I think 50% would be a decent minimum, because he only just scraped in ahead of Bird. Without Richie in the ballot, the numbers would have been totally different.

    I think the best system might be everyone who gets over 50% is inducted, unless nobody gets that much, in which case it's the winner. One person per week is fine if the votes lean that way.

    I also think 33% is too low and at least 50% of the vote should be required (which in fact is actually only 25% of the votes cast as each person can vote for two people).

    While the first ballot would then just result in Bradman and Benuad, other ballots would be a lot closer once these obvious choices are already voted in.
