    CW awards for the 21- 28 Jan.

    Congratulations to the following:

    Did not receive the milestones this week, so we will double up next week

    Thanks to Pasag who is filling in for Alternative.

    A very good week of debating on most threads this week, which was good to see. We are also introducing a new award this week for the best prediction. For obvious reasons this award may not be awarded to a prediction made in the same week as the awards (have I just won the Inzi for next week?)

    Still looking for another member to join the team

    The CW Awards Team

    Alternative (milestones)
    Marc (awards judge)
    Position Vacant (Sir Geoffrey, and Sobers)
    Adharcric (Afridi and Hussey)
    Nightprowler10 (Warne and Bradman)
    Archie (whatever else is left over)

    If you are celebrating a “Posts” milestone this week, please let Manju (Alternative) know, you can contact him at hunterbhai at hotmail dot com

    If you would like to discuss anything to do with the awards, please let me know, you can contact me on kehlers at iprimus dot com dot au

    If you notice a post or thread that you think is worthy of an award please contact Marc at marc at robbins46 dot freeserve dot co dot uk

    If you notice any worthy nominees for the Sir Geoffrey, Sobers or AA awards this week, please let Dravid know, you can contact him at nnindia at hotmail dot com

    If you notice any worthy nominees for the Afridi or Hussey awards this week, please let adharcric know, you can contact him at adhar at berkeley dot edu

    If you notice any worthy nominees for the Warne or Bradman awards this week, please let nightprowler10 know, you can contact him at usmangreat@hotmail.com



    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: FaaipDeOiad for this click here No wonder he is beating me in the battle of the CC posters

    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 Langeveldt for this click here , created some good discussion (I picked the winner this week)

    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: silentstriker click here there is a good comeback here somewhere

    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: Fiery , has been around awhile, but seems much more active of late

    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: GeraintIsMyHero for this click here at least wait until he gets there

    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: silentstriker for this click here I am not sure if this is vague, wrong or if fact right but completely meaningless. So it must be an Inzi

    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: Mr Mxyzptlk , very impressive week of posting, has made some very impressive points


    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: pup11 for this click here Txt speak: r u ok 2 e-joy tis?

    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:
    pup11 Two awards this week, (still I want to correct most of his spelling) well done

    The Gatting V Rana award for the best debate of the week, and the winners are: Too many to mention for this click here many members involved in the debate, really enjoyable stuff

    Saj Award for best rant of the week (following Saj's outburst after the 3rd Test, and no Saj, we don't know what you were doing out there either, it's a sad indictment on the quality of our reserves: And the Winner is: LA ICE-E for this click here He slowly builds up to his rant, a controlled ‘Saj’ if you will

    Marsh/Lillee Award (Best prediction of the week) they took 500/1 against England winning after following-on, and won, um lost. And the Winner is: Slow Love for this click here The only one who was not writing them off at the time, good call


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

    Just read it, was none too bad, but I don't pick this award, and I still think Sean had you

    Actually, I did read your response and I read the response to your response as well. Both of you made some interesting points and I spent some time reading them over.
    In the end, the two of you were the top contenders but I felt my selection was the more balanced post. Perhaps next week ... shouldn't be too difficult considering your activity.

    Bemused by a couple of calls there. Faaip has made a few far superior posts this week, IMO.

    Also can't understand pup11's Hussey award. His posts are mostly incomprehensible and relentlessly plugging the same one or two points. Must be a slow week for newcomers

    Haha, cheers. I'm not on here often enough to be able to make the right calls. It just happens that I've seen enough of Faaip and pup11 this week to be a bit mystified.

    Richard: we may not get along, but there's nothing wrong with your posting style, or your knowledge of the game

    Why, thank you.

    Glad we've at least got that one straight.

    That's why we ask for nominations. I got home at 3 am yesterday and tried to scan through all the major threads and make a pick for the Afridi rather than leave it empty.
    As for the Hussey, we have been rather generous of late but there haven't been too many quality newcomers in recent times. The Hussey is not one of the major awards ...

    Haha yeah, I didn't that post was all that great either, and if pup11 is a great addition to the forum then I clearly have no idea what's going on.
