    All Awards nominations to be sent to cwawards@cricketmail.net. PLEASE NOMINATE guys, we judges don’t read every thread and it’s easy to miss hugely worthy stuff.

    Best Of The Best

    The Shahid Afridi Award (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: Venter for this, again I’m afraid I picked this, if you disagree please let me know.

    The Shane Warne Award (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: Craig for this. Stops the stats boys from having a say, so a rare thing based on personal opinion.

    The Skull Award (Funniest post of the week)
    Just like the king of the one-liner Kerry O’Keefe, can also be serious.
    And the Winner is: Neil Pickup for this,

    The Garfield 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: pasag, been around the boards this week, has our esteemed Vice-Admin Mr Gelman.

    The Tony Greig Award (Worst prediction of the week)
    Will he ever live down that “I intend to make them grovel” prediction re- the West Indies in 1976?
    And the Winner is: dave.a7x for this. Special mention too, on this Greigy comeback week, to Top_Cat for this.

    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 knew twice as much as Richie.
    And the Winner is: no Award this week, been very little in the way out outstanding posting the last seven days.

    The Agarkar/Mohammed Award (“At least they’re trying” award)
    Just like Ajit Agarkar and Dave Mohammed, they may not be quite good enough for any other award, but at least we remember them.
    And the Winner is: sirdj, even though he has been a member for a while and has a hundred odd posts. I am sure if the awards hadn’t been off for so long he would have been recognised earlier.

    The Sajid Mahmood Award (Best rant of the week)
    Following Saj's outburst after the Third Ashes Test 2006\07, and no Saj, we didn't know what you were doing out there either, it was a sad indictment on the quality of our reserves.
    And the Winner is: Sir Redman for this, wowee.

    The Marsh/Lillee Award (Best prediction of the week)
    In 1981 Rodney Marsh and Dennis Lillee took odds of 500/1 against England winning after following-on, and won, um, lost.
    And the Winner is: sudhindra9 for this, correctly predicting all the IPL finalists Blake tells me. Not that I was taking any notice.

    The Jeff Thomson Award (“Whooooooooosh”)
    Thommo was both very quick and not very smart, so hence could conceivably have had plenty of things going over his head. He’s very fitting for a “whoooooooosh”.
    And the Winner is: Jakester1288 for this, is about all that can be said TBH.

    Will never win a CC award if I can't for the last week. Made about four or five solid predictions, but were IPL-based so I guess that makes sense. They were actually during the week in question aswell.

    Blake evidently fancied sudhindra9 ahead of you.

    Anyone who posts all that often will have a pretty decent chance of winning something though TBH.

    I'm a little dissappointed I never won an award for my debut post, it took me long enough to write!

    You're a decent shout - very decent in fact - for a Hussey very soon, provided you stick around.

    Just a minor clarification. That should have read "hundred odd extra posts" (over and above the criteria of 500 max)

    No, no, there's no posts criterion for the Agarkar\Mohammed. I've been given it before, with 30,000-odd posts and 40,000-odd too. That's why I removed the "extra" from the sentence in your email.

    Thanks for clarifying. It does make the job of selection so much easier.

    I'm so sure you've won one before. Can't think what it might've been, and I'm not about to check back through the 40 or 50 Awards threads, but I'm pretty sure I gave you something sometime myself.

    Post in the tour thread during the upcoming Test and you're always a decent shout for a Boycs.
