    CW Ranks Top 25 Batsmen of All Time (Version 2010)

    It has been a long time since Adharcric conducted this fantastic exercise. Now with the changed demographics of CW, I guess it will be a good idea to re-do it. My suggestion will be not to have a look at the earlier one, since that might cloud our judgment in some cases.

    This time there'll be a very small change in the procedure. As always, we'll be going from selecting rank 1 to all the way selecting rank 25. All the members will select their top 3 picks for each position. Pick 1 gets 3 points, pick 2 gets 2 points and pick 3 gets 1 point. Each position will get approximately 2 days of voting time (some slightly more and some slightly less, depending on when I get time for counting votes). After 2 days of voting, rank 1 will be selected. Then we'll move to rank 2, and so on. Any batsman who has played a First-Class match is eligible, like last time (and for the same reason).

    As an example, I shall start by casting my 3 votes for rank 1.

    1. Donald Bradman (3 points)
    2. Jack Hobbs (2 points)
    3. Garfield Sobers (1 point)

    Looking forward to some meaningful cricket discussions in this thread, too - the CW way.

    "This is a clash of strategy. And of methods, culture and politics. This is a new-era rivalry. Not as ancient as the Ashes, or as passionate as India-Pakistan. Two countries that are so different, yet share rampant egotism, high self-opinion and a belief that being born in their country is superior to other births. This brings together a belligerent bunch of brats, bullies and braggers."- Jarrod Kimber

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!
