    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: Beleg for this click here great read, even managed to include the name of the awards dedication.

    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 Francis for this click here , great opening post, and some good debate

    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: steds click here when I was a boy. We also have special mention for this: silentstriker click here it does not count as an award SS

    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: no award this week

    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: social for this click here social, social, social. We also have special mention for this: Scaly piscine click here It hurts


    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: no award this week

    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: no award this week

    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: cover drive man has greatly improved and hopeflly he'll go from strength to strength , well done.


    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:
    HeathDavisSpeed two awards good start


    The Gatting V Rana award for the best debate of the week, and the winners are: no winners this week

    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: HeathDavisSpeed for this click here good rant, We also have special mention for this: silentstriker click here it does not count as an award SS

    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: wpdavid click here the only person who can read the English selectors minds.

    Sorry about the lack of Sir Garfield and Sir Geoffrey Awards, has been the quietest week since I joined the team.

    Had one hell of a difficult choice for the Saj this week, though. Good stuff from HDS, 3 awards in 2 weeks. Congrats to Yawer (Beleg), Manan having the Afridi snatched from under his nose again... (And he doesn't even seem to be online to make his usual early "ah, ****" post this week either)

    I don't pick the Agarkar\Mohammed but if there was ever a deserving winner and one who I was certain about it was this week. Great stuff cdm - and it says a bit that you were the only one I even remotely considered for the Sir Garfield too.

    And one of the best Marsh-Lillee-s in history.

    Good to have you back, too, Sean, I might add.

    SS was legitimately ripped off this week, I feel.

    In that it's always legitimate to rip him off, yes.

    Go heathy, go heathy, go heathy.

    It's going to be tough to keep this level of performance up, but I am ready for the challenges ahead. Before long, others will be able to bask in my award winning glory!

    Oh, and btw, if there was ever an award for most bizarre or out of place post, I would have nominated Amanda (forget her username) for her very interesting discourse on Spain yesterday, in a thread which seems to have been deleted (cos I can't find it). I thought it was excellent.

    Dunno if i'm the best judge of bizarre. Someone elses bizarre is common-or-garden to Heath. Mind you, people send in nominations don't they? Might stop me from giving it to myself every week (hey, an award's an award, right?)

    Sean (Akhil?), what do you think about a new addition to the Panel?

    I like it, myself.

    HDS for the most bizarre post, you mean? He can certainly choose the award but I suppose we need to come up with a unique, cricket-related title for the award.

    Indeed.

    (I thought the Heath Davis Award would be best, but if you can think of something better, please do...)

    What did you think of the suggestion for a Jimmy Adams Award, BTW?

    Yeah, genuine LOL at the drumming into ss that he's not winning an award in these cases.
