    OK, first step is to nominate 40-45 people.

    When nominating someone, please put a link to their cricinfo page, so its easy for people to see their stats, and also post a link to a picture if you can find it.

    So far...

    1) Ricky Ponting
    2) Mark Waugh
    3) Mark Taylor
    4) Roger Harper
    5) Viv Richards
    6) Clive Lloyd
    7) Derek Randall
    8) Jonty Rhodes
    9) Herschelle Gibbs
    10) Bob Simpson
    11) Garry Sobers
    12) Norm O'Neil
    13) Paul Sheeham
    14) Lance Gribbs
    15) Gus Logie
    16) Sachin Tendulkar
    17) Mohammad Kaif
    18) Yuvraj Singh
    19) Paul Collingwood
    20) Mohammad Azharuddin
    21) Shahid Afridi
    22) Suresh Raina
    23) Brian Lara
    24) Imran Khan
    25) Kapil Dev
    26) Mike Hussey
    27) Shaun Pollock
    28) Greg Chappell
    29) Mahela Jayawardene
    30) Tillakaratne Dilshan
    31) Muttiah Muralitharan
    32) Dwayne Bravo

    Special thanks to SS because I used his battle of the subcontinent thread as a guideline as to how battles work.

    I nominate Monty Panesar. And Jonty will likely win the whole thing, making it a bit pointless TBH.

    True, but atleast it'll be interesting to see who comes 2nd, 3rd and so on.

    Wally Hammond. One of the finest slip fielders of all time, definitely deserves a place.

    There's some weird ones in there anyway. I mean, Imran Khan? You may as well include McGrath and Brett Lee.

    Will you be using winning percentage for this one too, SS?

    No, draw percentage. Obviously, better fielding would equal the batsman being more defensive for fear of run out or hard catchees taken, and thus become defensive, thus leading to a draw.

    Dwayne Smith.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I dont think Jonty Rhodes would be a clear cut winner as everyone thinks he will be, sure he was a magnificent fielder in the ring but there have been some amazing slip fielders over the years who, although they do different things could probably be considered equal.

    Nothing special about Murali, Afridi or Lara. Not sure about Imran, Kapil and Pollock. Haven't heard of a few others in there. Get rid of a few and keep it to 32, IMO.
