    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: Natman 20 for this click here Very tough competition this week for the Afridi, Natman just in front of BoyBrumby click here

    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 Swervey for this click here , lots of 20/20 threads this week, not sure why

    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: Neil Pickup click here You may have to read the previous posts, to understand this one. Special mention to Jono for this: click here & also a special mention for this effort from Barney Rubble click here

    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: Jono I think Jono has one this award more than anyone else, top stuff!

    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: moshnz for this click here I agreed at the time, but was not silly enough to post. Although it was close; NZ Tailender click here

    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: LAICE-E for this click here Okay, lost me, but that might be just me?

    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: FaaipDeOiad top week of posting, all quality stuff

    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:
    Poker Boy This has turned into the most controversial award on the site, tough job, but a deserving winner this week

    The Gatting V Rana award for the best debate of the week, and the winners are: Swervy V Richard for this click here Tom and SS were in the thick of it as well, interesting read.

    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: dass for this click here Why oh why?

    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: no award this week, lots of late tips for the Kiwi’s but a little late to win such a prestigious award imo


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

    I think the Hussey should be determined on sign up date as opposed to the amount of posts. Poker Boy has been around for a while and is definitely not a newcomer.

    I made an exception this time because I planned to give him the award a few months ago but forgot about it at the time. Deserving winner IMO.

    By the way Archie , computer is the best invention cuz you don't have to type the whole stuff again and again ,As I type one line and I always need a little walk and a glass of juice or water to get rid of exhaustion of superior sports journalism .
    As I was talking to a new comer about the "copy - paste art of precision and accuracy" , IMHO it sure is a good tool !! !

    Apologies for the lack of some awards this week people, I was away all week and unable to catch up on the forum in time to let archie know...
    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.
