    Nah, **** off.

    A guy who places highly on 2 people's lists is more deserving of a place than a guy who gets 5 25th places.

    Not a fan of this. It works well for the top few players, but not so for the cricketers who will be receiving votes in the 20 to 25 range.

    Then I can collaborate with Turbi to put Harbhajan in top 50

    Keep it simple - 25 points for top down to 1 for 25th and total up.

    No, but a guy who gets in the 20's for 10 people's list should be more deserving than if 1 person put someone else at the top...
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    If 1 1st place vote is enough to put someone in the top 50 then that's fine by me.

    Proudly against the bring back Bennett movement since he is injury prone and won't last 5 days.

    Problem GF is that we would have barely 30-40 voters at the end, this makes it possible for an individual to manipulate the outcome. If there were hundreds of voters, this problem wouldn't occur.

    Anyways, I sent my list (and picked a list I honestly believe in). Why do you guys still use hotmail, btw?

    Otherwise, isn't it too easy to manipulate this list?

    For example, I know Bradman will do well but I also want Kapil ahead of Botham in the list. I can simply place Kapil at no. 1 and throw Botham out of the 25. I personally don't think Kapil to be the best test cricketer ever, and I know that in spite of me rating him no. 1, he won't come out no. 1 in the final list - but it serves my purpose..

    We should all just agree to be honest with our votes irrespective of the methodology used. Are we allowed to discuss our list before all votes are in?

    Count me in, for Kohli too.

    If the rules don't change, let's collaborate for the middle-finger.

    BTW, the list that I have sent has been prepared very honestly. But if the rules don't change, let's send a revised list by 28th?

    Agreed the top ten in particular are pretty predictable and will get in there with or without my vote so I plan to use my number one pick to promote a great servant of NZ cricket



    Please join me in voting for Bruce.

    Think putting up Kohli as avatar is already enough pain inflicted on the forum

    I know what your saying, but like I say it doesn't work for players who get lots of votes in the 20s.

    Why should a player who gets ranked 23, 25, 25, 24 = 7 x 4 = 28 get so much more points than someone who gets ranked 22, 23 = 7 x 2 = 14

    Also, I don't really understand why anyone would have a purpose like that. Just pick the best 25 in order and see where your favourites finish.
