    CW Top 50 Cricketers of All Time - 2nd Edition

    Gentlemen and Gentlemen (there don't seem to be any ladies on CW) after the popularity of CW top 50 cricketers of all time I decided to act on NUFAN's idea and recreate this thread that was done about 5 years earlier by the Sean. Also CW demographics have probably changed over the last 5 years so the list would probably be different from last time. Would be an interesting exercise IMO to see what list this time's voting throws up.

    The idea is simple.

    People have to send in a list of their top 25 test cricketers of all time to me on cwtop50@hotmail.com

    The scoring will be as follows

    The cricketer on the 25th rank will get 1 point and the top ranking cricketer will get 25 points.

    The sum total of all points individually for all the cricketers will determine their overall rank.

    The cricketers ranked 50 - 21 will have a thread on them in groups of 5 each. The top 20 cricketers will then have a thread. In case people would prefer individual threads for only the the top 15 or top 25 do let me know. I will go ahead with that.

    I hope this will be as good if not better than the last edition.

    Ok guys, you have till Thursday 29th of March 2012 3 pm GMT to send in your entries.

    Let the games begin
    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

    Sent.

    Probably some controversial picks in there, but I went with the 25 I believe to have had the greatest impact.

    I figured quite a few would get in easily anyway, so I thought I'd spare some votes to some other players who are deserving, but won't get nearly as many.

    I have given a long time for people to send in their lists because people usually don't frequent CW on the weekends.

    Do you guys reckon I should shorten the period where people can send in their entries?

    Nah, I think the length of time is fine mate. The more numbers the better. I'll get you a list, I'm just trying to work out who should fill my last few positions.

    How about setting a qualification of receiving a vote from at least 5 voters to eradicate joke picks like Jardine and Flintoff last time around?

    Thinking along this line, I think that (total points * total votes received by that player) might make an interesting final list...In that case, we won't need the cut-off criteria, too...

    For example, if Bradman receives 435 points, and 18 out of 20 memebers have voted for him, his total point would be (435*18)=7830 and so on...
