    Sanga isn't the best off spinner in the history of cricket? News to me.

    Disappointed that SpinnaInATurban didn't receive the Skull, was the funniest thing I've sen in quite a while TBH, no disrespect intended to BB. Very pleased to win the Sobers, I have been posting a lot recently and I'm stoked that people value it.

    Yeah, I was sort of hoping SW\BLE would win the Skull, TBH. Would have been great for the novel value.

    Also, good to see altoz and hbh posting consecutively again.

    And I guess this is also the best place to say congrats to altoz on his latest promotion.
    Very pleased to win the Sobers, I have been posting a lot recently and I'm stoked that people value it.
    Well... I value it. It's my choice, and mine alone (though Marc and Sean retain the right to veto any award nomination).

    Nonetheless, I'd imagine most agree with me that your absence being short is better than had it been long. IMO you add a hell of a lot to the forums, and it's very good to have people like you, Rob, Jono and myself who realise that the game is about more than just their own team.

    He'd be neglecting his responsibilities if he got it, you see.
