Since we are approaching the end of the rankings a request from DoG. Could you post a table for quality / career / peak points for all 100 batsmen?

There's nothing I can say to praise Sir Donald Bradman's skill with the willow that hasn't already been written by scores of cricket writers. I will stick to the cold, hard facts. The gap between Bradman and Sobers is a massive 544 points. And yet there are only 288 points between Sobers and Polly Umrigar at no.100. The Don has 15 great innings. That's 1 per every 5.33 innings played. Those two facts alone should convince anyone that Bradman is not only the greatest cricketer ever but probably the best sportsman of all time when you look at the sheer chasm between himself and the rest of the field.
And that brings us to the end of the list. The feedback I have received from this has been amazing. Thanks so much everyone. I have incorporated the updated formula into Bradman's stats as a preview of the coming adjustments to the top 100. I will also put the same updated formula into the bowler's list so it may be a while before I can present a top 100 of test bowlers. Stay tuned.

Indians can't bowl - Where has the rumour come from as I myself and many indian friends arwe competent fast bowlers ?
With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

Headley receives a maximum of 705 career points having only played 22 matches and thus drops down to no.13.
That's quite the gap.
The final list it so perfect that I wish all the sexy girls in Takasaki storm your house and bury you in their passion for one whole week. Bravo DoG!
Damn, and I was expecting Tikolo.
Edit: Bradman played 4 Tests at Headingley, and in every single one he hit one of the finest innings of all time. Well.
Well done DoG. Been fascinating reading.

Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

The Don liked Leeds more than most of us who live here by the looks of it.
Marvelous job DoG and can't wait for the bowlers list. A bit sad to see Pollock so low as was becoming more of a fan, but he and Headley must be rated with a disclaimer I guess. Wonder how that would transfer to O'Reilly's rating.
Quick question, what were the adjustments made again and DoG would you be inclined to give us a sneak peek of the formula of the bowling calculations?
Again, fabulous job Sir.

Think his list deserves to be on the main page.. Wonder if you can post it up as a series with just the players and the write ups and their rankings, maybe along with a simpler explanation of the formula.. Great job DoG.. Absolutely loved the journey
We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.
