thanks for posting Fusion.......
it is a pretty decent list I believe....well done guys
And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW
Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta
I think it was weldone who wanted to know which player made the top 50 last time but failed to attract a single vote this time.
Now, Smali did the last 3 or 4 emails, so I'm not 100% sure if this player got mentioned in those emails, but from the first 53 lists, Jim Laker had 0 votes. Crazy hey.
very difficult to remember so many cricketers who have played over the years......onlly the very best stick out
Sutcliffe,Weekes and Barrington the three 1.2 times very good players miss out.

Yeah I'm pretty sure I voted for Laker last time too although close to 25th.
From the top 50 we ended up having:
West Indies 11
South Africa 7
New Zealand 1
Sri Lanka 1
All Rounder 11
Wicket Keeper 1
Obviously a little debatable what category some people belong to. For instance I had Wasim and Benaud as bowlers, but Hadlee as an all rounder so some might disagree with that.

I inexplicably left Gilchrist out altogether. It's weird too because I considered sending in an entirely mathematical list but decided not to because it ignored things like wicket keeping, and decided to just use it as a guide instead because of that... and then still missed out Gilchrist. I also wish I had Marshall higher. To this day I don't know why I put him in as low as I did.
I would have made some changes as well. Maybe some day a public vote can be done. Wouldn't be as difficult and peoples votes would be out there for all to see.
