    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: nightprowler10 for this click here emotive issue, and one of the rare posters to try and see both sides

    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 grant28 for this click here , the best debated of all the Murali V Warne threads, is CW growing up?

    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: Marc will post this award in a separate post

    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: silentstriker , two in a row, and must have been a chance for a repeat Bradman. According to the judge of this award “this guy (SS) posts too much”

    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: Sir Redman click here I missed this last week, (I don’t read that thread tbh) but you guessed it they went onto win the match, and a deserving winner

    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: Marc will post this award in a separate post

    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: arjun , Is there anything this poster does not know about Indian cricket? Especially knows his recent players back the front





    The Bradman Award (Overall CW poster of the week) Simply the best no matter what the debate or criteria. And the Winner is: no award this week

    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: no award this week

    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: The Sean new poster, who fitted like an old glove, plus he has lived in Canberra, so he must be smart (it’s in the water )

    The Gatting V Rana award for the best debate of the week, and the winners are: Nightprowler10 V silentstriker click here not sure who had the best of it, too close to call

    Please remember, these awards are not officially endorsed by CW management
    You know it makes sense.

    LOL - the one that did get through (Greigy) and it wasn't the one I gave it to!

    Anyway - the Skull was completely missed by all this week - didn't see anyone even acknowledge this quite superb effort from a first time winner in Scaly Piscine:

    Skull

    Meanwhile, I've managed to lose the Inzy, not sure what happened with my email having the same post 3 times - pretty poor effort IMO. The Inzy will go unclaimed this week (another first I believe)
    marc71178 - President and founding member of AAAS - we don't only appreciate when he does well, but also when he's not quite so good!

    Anyone want to join the Society?

    Beware the evils of Kit-Kats - they're immoral apparently.

    He didn't take steroids (necessarily), he took a diuretic.

    diuretic adj. Tending to increase the discharge of urine. n. A substance or drug that tends to increase the discharge of urine.

    Ah. OK, now I got it. Well he was injured during the time and came back faster than normal, so I have my doubts. In any case, thank you for explaining it. The rest of you are bastards.
