    was sticking to a 30+ batting average and a < 35 bowling average for this. the poll options become too many if i dont divide the prelim polls. the final poll will feature the top four from here and the top two from the other poll. see the main thread for the other names.

    Went Imran, Miller, Botham and Kapil Dev - tempted to give a vote to Noble and/or Woolley because I hate seeing both of them on zero.

    Hard to take any all-rounder poll where Pathan is included seriously IMO.
    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.

    Bagapath listed everyone that met the criteria. He's not asking you to consider him seriously over the other candidates.

    Suggests that the criteria are a tad over-simplifying things then.

    I chose Faulkner over Kapil from your four. I almost went for Noble instead of Faulkner. I am disappointed I did not give Kapil more consideration than I did even if I did not finally chose him. On second thoughts I should have chosen Kapil too.

    pathan is in because we are using stats against all nations. minus minnows, he wont be there. since he alone seems to be the odd one out, i decided not to tamper with the criteria too much and left him in. his numbers are not very different from mankad's, who is definitely one of the best all-rounders of all time. so it didnt seem to be that big a crime to leave pathan in. usually, i dont have the "funny" last option in my polls. treat him as that and choose four other guys.
