    Australian Cricketers Rankings

    I have developed a ranking system for the Australian Cricket Players this year for both Tests & ODI's (updated after every game Australia plays). It revolves around points obtained through my criteria, my criteria just does not revolve around runs scored or wickets taken, but it also takes into account other factors such as batters strike rates, bowlers economy, number of madiens a bowler has bowled, not outs by batsmen etc. Here are my rankings to date this year. Feel free to agree or disagree with them. There are some suprises, though some players are further down the rankings then they should be due to injuries obtained this year etc.

    So what do you think about my rankings? Do you think that they are good or bad?

    Before commenting, I should like to see the criteria you are using.
    Obviously 'trips to the chemist' aren't involved because Warney hasn't any points.

    <quack> Warney is definitely 'old and busted' now - hence his 'setting the record straight' interview. Although, in Warney's case, hilarity is but a phone call or a weather forecast away.

    At the moment, Rikki is 'teh new hotness', but Brad Williams could well come into the frame for ridicule alongside his namesakes GLA (Greatest-living Australian) Hogg and Cheaty.

    Can he throw? What does Cameraman Joe think about him?

    Thanks for the welcome Mr. Ponting.

    My points allocation/criteria is a closely guarded secret.

    Fair comment - in which case, we can just look upon it as opinion.

    For instance, consider the following bowlers...

    Walsh
    Warne
    Muralitharan
    Cork
    McGrath
    Marshall
    Trueman
    Gibbs
    Clarke
    Underwood

    I too have applied a formula based upon their test records and come up with the following sequence :

    Malcolm Marshall 114.72
    Derek Underwood 111.79
    Glenn McGrath 109.30
    Shane Warne 108.15
    Courtney Walsh 102.32
    Rikki Clarke 101.18
    Dominic Cork 101.05
    Muttiah Muralitharan 99.98
    Fred Trueman 95.66
    Lance Gibbs 92.79

    Amazing, eh? Rikki Clarke is ahead of Muttiah Muralitharan.

    However, even when I tell you that the table is deternined from the age of their first test victim on the day they took their first wicket (in days, divided by 100 so it has decimal points and therefore looks as though a complex algorithm has been used and some mug might accept it), it's still as valid as yours. :P

    Only joking. Welcome to Cricket Web

    Only I know. For one it keeps people in suspense (and interested) wondering who is no.1 in my rankings etc.

    luckyeddie, In regards to your formula, you should of also (after dividing by 100) square root the numbers. Then you'll probablly get some long complicated decimal number :P

    Nah, just kidding, thanks for the welcome.
