    I don't think I participated last time round. Eager to see if my rather unorthodox submissions have any effect.

    What are we doing? Sending a list of 25 players all time for tests only?

    To whom do we send it?

    Yep. To cwtop50@hotmail.com

    The top 50 will then be chosen by a simple process involving the rigorous cleansing of results to eliminate anomalies, dishonesty, errors, carelessness, quirks, interesting results, personal bias, personal preferences, and personal opinions. Those whose lists betray any of these defects will be subjected to robust interrogation techniques to force them to reveal their motives, intentions and influences before being named, shamed and eternally banned from CW.

    That said, it'll be great fun. I've submitted my list and am awaiting the 3am knock at the door from masked men from CW because, acting under the influence of both a foreign power and a foreign lager, I wantonly put Wally Hammond above Shane Warne.

    Ah, me too actually - was just going with cricketers generally. Not going to change my votes - if I just looked at Test cricket the good Doctor would miss out, and I won't be having that.

    I trust you didn't place him above Tendulkar, for your own safety.

    I'll have a crack at this this morning. Will put back that conference I have.

    Mate, just what you did with 25th - I know it's only 1 point but can you please just pick the one player for the spot, I'm not giving out half points or in your case .2 of a point.

    Thank you kyear.

    If two or more people end up level how does everyone want us to split it?
    a) Say both are equal
    b) Give the vote to the cricketer with the most votes
    c) Give the vote to the cricketer with the highest vote

    I'm thinking B - smali what do you think?

    What does it mean to have a test only list? Does that rule out Grace?
