    CW Hall of Fame 2nd Ballot- Top 4 Elimination

    Due to no player getting the required %age of the vote, I have taken the top 4 for a further round of voting.

    The winner of the vote gets automatic entry into the CW Hall of Fame and if a 2nd player gets over 35% they will be inducted also.

    Only change is that you can only cast one vote in this elimination round.

    No, looks like just WG as Warne doesn't have 35% of the votes. IMO, this is the way it should be with the earlier greats (e.g. WG, Hobbs, Hammond, Sutcliffe, Harvey, Miller, Davidson, Benuad, Botham, Lillee, Hadlee, Imran, etc) being inducted before the current greats.

    I don't think a hall of fame list should be done by elimination, IMO all 4 of those people deserve to be on that list no question.

    I agree. At the very least, we need to lossen the voting criteria. Why not make it to where the top 5 get in every ballot? Because the first few ballots are going to have "no brainer" candidates that deserve to be in. Otherwise people will keep splitting their votes on deserving candidates and we'll drag this out forever.

    I may be alone in thinking this, but i think the first 20 or so entrants into the hall of fame will be complete no brainers and only then should we have a vote to see who else we think deserves to get in.

    Probably right, but deciding who the 20 or so "no brainer" candidates are can be tricky. So I think if we just let people vote more liberally at first (like voting for upto 5 candidates at time), all the deserving candidates will get in. Then, clamp down and start debating.

    Or maybe we should do them by era, with more recent eras having more nominations (more Tests played, and more Test players)

    Era one from say 1877- 1920

    Grace
    Fry
    MacLaren
    Jackson
    Barnes
    Shrewsbury
    Ranji
    Rihcardson
    Trumper
    Hill
    Noble
    Murdoch
    Trumble
    Gregory (Syd)
    Spofforth
    Blackham
    Rhodes
    Faulkner
    Schwarze
    Sinclair

    Just off the top of my head so sorry if I missed someone important
    You know it makes sense.
