    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: Richard for this click here did not agree with it all, but some quality stuff, and well written

    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 Pup Clarke for this click here , a bit light on for threads this week, I thought this the best of the new ones

    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: Steulen click here I don’t get it? But its not the first time that has happened

    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: Pup Clarke , not to everyone’s liking but I think on the whole he had a good week of posting, and visited a lot of threads

    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: sideshowtim for this click here & click here first and second place this week for SST

    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: bullet for this click here One post, might be an idea to stop now!

    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: The Sean , Very high quality posts this week, knows his cricket history


    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:
    Salamuddin can be a little bit contrary, but makes some fair points

    The Gatting V Rana award for the best debate of the week, and the winners are: Gunner, LT, C_C, Richard and SS for this click here mostly interesting, threatened to jump the rails a couple of times. Some of us still need to work on NOT making personal attacks against other members.

    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: gunner for this click here I must admit I had my money or the Kiwi

    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: Jono for this click here tipping against Hussey; a brave man, and deserving winner


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

    Oh, OK...

    So someone who joined in December 2002 and posted regularly-ish and not often could win the award 200 weeks in a row?

    As I say - I've instantly grown to love these awards and I just think it'd be better to have the Hussey awarded according to join-date rather than post-count.

    We tend to only award this once. But if this weeks winner did not post for say 6 months and then came back, I imagine he could win it again

    As for the Afridi, it was recommended by Marc, I forwarded on to Adharcric, but did not hear back from him re- his choice this week. As I also thought it a deserving winner I went ahead and awarded it

    That may be the better option, I will discuss with Adharcric and Marc. What time frame would you impose?

    I'd go for had to have registered (and posted a minumum 20) in the week of the award and the week previous.

    Or something along those lines.
