Best of The Best
Shahid Afridi Award for (Best post of the week) Like an innings by the great man, it does not have to be very long, to be great viewing. And the Winner is: C_C for this click here some good points, not that I agree with all of it. Although it should be mentioned I am Australian, and Ricky is the best!
Shane Warne Award for (Best thread of the week) Like his bowling it must be interesting but just like his private life it can also be controversial. And the Winner is Goughy for this click here , the thread starter has asked not to be considered for any awards, but I hope he won’t mind just this once. Top thread, and has to be recognised.
The Skull Award (Funniest poster for the week) Just like the king of the one liner Kerry O’Keefe, can also be serious. And the Winner is: Son Of Coco for this click here always a chance for this award, funny poster
The Sobers Award (Most varied poster of the week) The true all-rounder of CW you must be able to contribute to a number of threads. And the Winner is: aussie tragic , visits lots of threads, and contributes quality posts
Tony Greig Award (Worst prediction of the week) Will he ever live down that ‘We will make them grovel’ prediction re- the West Indies? And the Winner is: Steds click here just because you heard it here first, does not mean….
Inzamam Award (Vaguest poster of the week) We are not sure what he is talking about, but we hope he knows. And the Winner is: Neil Pickup click here This was amusing, but we don’t want any copycats, similar post will be studiously ignored
The Sir Geoffrey Award (Most knowledgeable poster of the week) We were going to call this the Richie Benaud award, but after speaking to Boycs, he assured us he new twice as much as Richie. And the Winner is: Matt79, great to have him back full time (although he still owes me a book review ).
The Bradman Award (Overall CW poster of the week) Simply the best no matter what the debate or criteria. And the Winner is: FaaipDeOiad Great week of posting, an easy choice, well done Sean
Agarkar/Mohammed award for ('At least their trying' award)
just like the players this award is named after, they may not be quite good enough for any other award, but at least we remember them. And the Winner is: mohammad16, new poster, seems to have some passion or something similar, but not sure if the word filter will allow the description.
The Mike Hussey award for best newcomer (less then 500 posts), not too many have had a great debut and continued success like “Mr Cricket” And the Winner is: no award this week. Come on where is all of the new blood?
The Gatting V Rana award for the best debate of the week, and the winners are: C_C Vs CW click here argued well but the weight of opposition seemed to suggest he was flogging a dead horse (that is a shocking expression)
Please remember, these awards are not officially endorsed by CW management
