    All other awards nominations to be sent to cwawards@cricketmail.net


    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: fusion for this click here A voice of sense

    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 , some very good debate on this thread, went a little skewed towards the end though

    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: FRAZ click here Gotta love the Spice Girls

    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: Matt79 can always be relied on for quality 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: Richard for this click here special mention to Turbinator for his effort


    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: Steulen for this click here Don’t call me potato

    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: KiWiNiNjA contributing with some quality post to the WC threads

    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 they’re 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: Richard For is unflinching defence of ‘the removal of the minnows’. Is it only cricket that refers to the lesser teams as minnows?

    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:
    sirdj showing promise

    The Gatting V Rana award for the best debate of the week, and the winners are: Richard V Too many to mention for this click here Richard seems to be winning this almost on a weekly basis

    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: no award this week

    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: Neil Pickup for this click here awhile ago but still worthy of an award


    Please remember, these awards are not officially endorsed by CW management

    Excellent week this week, all very well deserved except for the Inzi. Some should be candidates for the end of year awards tbh.

    Scaly unlucky to miss out on the Marsh/Lillee for this effort, one feels. Nonetheless, congrats to all the winners, some good stuff.

    I think Prince EWS predicted Ireland a heap of times tbh, also quite unlucky.

    If you keep predicting you are bound to be right at some point
    Beware the lollipop of mediocrity. Lick once and you suck forever...

    Given my run of Greigys, and the fact that I picked Ireland in 4 seperate threads - and then put a stack of money of them - and I'm really gutted not to get the Marsh/Lillee. I didn't do it an upsets thread where everyone knows they can look stupid and get away with it, either.

    Anyway, congrats to all the winners (except Neil. ) - it's been a good week of posting really so all the winners had a lot of competition. Well done.

    congrats to all winners.


    As Archie said, a great week in one sense but a really really depressing one in another.


    Haven't had the opportunity to post after all that happened over the weekend here yet. So gonna post here now, even if this is the wrong thread and forum.


    Good to see Ireland and Bangladesh do well. Felt the format of the WC was okay right from the start and nice to get confirmation like this.


    India and Pakistan need to get their act together big time. Feel India will never do too well when they put their best ODI batter as of now at no.6. Yuvi needs to bat at 4, period. And having 4 openers as your top four was never the best idea.


    Pakistan team is going through an amazing lot right now and I really cant help but sympathize with them. Wish Godgives them the stregnth to go through all this.


    Still punting on India making it to super 8, although it has become very difficult now.
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
