    CW decides the greatest All-Rounder ever, 64 man knockout tournament: Voting Thread

    So we're deciding the greatest All-Rounder ever. We are including any and all formats of cricket when deciding our vote, Test, FC, ODI, Twenty20, List A and T20.

    Greatest All-Rounder Ever - Challonge

    There's the bracket. I ended up randomizing again it as this is a fairly wide open race so seeding would have been a little silly I think. Having said that, there are two names that always come up when discussing the title of greatest AR ever and as chance would have it they can't run into each other until very late in the piece. There are no howlers like McGrath drawing Marshall in round 2 of the bowling tournament I think so that's good.

    I think there are some interesting match-ups here in round 1.

    Slogger vs Slogger and Country vs Country appear a few times. A few matches that might have occurred a little later than round 1 or 2 had i seeded, but oh well. I like the unpredictability.


    I apologise again for making people vote 32 times in round 1, it's always an effort.


    Here we are, the matches(should last around 48 hours):

    Round 1:

    Dan Vettori vs Frank Foster
    Trevor Bailey vs Tony Greig
    Wasim Akram vs Shane Watson
    George Giffen vs Monty Noble

    Ravi Ashwin vs Abdul Razzaq
    Chris Harris vs Neil Johnson
    Gilbert Jessop vs Lance Klusener
    Jacques Kallis vs Aubrey Faulkner

    Andrew Flintoff vs Warwick Armstrong
    Kapil Dev vs Maurice Tate
    Shaun Pollock vs WG Grace
    Imran Khan vs Frank Woolley

    Dwayne Bravo vs Keith Miller
    Sanath Jayasuriya vs Gubby Allen
    Ravi Bopara vs Richie Benaud
    Wally Hammond vs Shahid Afridi

    Mustaq Mohammad vs Andrew Symonds
    Chris Gayle vs Angelo Matthews
    Jacob Oram vs Shakib Al-Hasan
    Chris Cairns vs Ravi Jadeja

    Wilfred Rhodes vs John Reid
    Vinoo Mankad vs Richard Hadlee
    Ian Botham vs Ray Illingworth
    Mitch Johnson vs Mike Procter

    Mohammad Hafeez vs Ryan ten Doeschate
    Azhar Mahmood vs Garry Sobers
    Alan Davidson vs Steve Waugh
    Clive Rice vs Trevor Goddard

    Steve Tikolo vs Heath Streak
    Jack Gregory vs Stuart Broad
    Learie Constantine vs Carl Hooper
    Chaminda Vaas vs Brian McMillan


    I think group 6 and 3 are the groups of death. A lot of potential quarter finalists in both 8-packs yet only 1 in each can make the final 8.

    oh well, vote away!

    I'm sorry. Being completely honest here because a lot of the noms that had him also featured Ajit Agarkar I put them down as joke votes in my mind, not even having a shot at Ajit either I just thought it's a running joke around here that he sucks. You'll see all my noms right after were joke noms too... I thought that's what we were doing. You guys naming Indian 'all-rounders' and I named austalian 'all-rounders'.

    I'm sorry dude I see Jadeja is actually pretty deserving based on his stats, didn't know a lot about him tbh. All of this happened before Jbmac came in started nomming Imran, Hadlee, Botham, Sobers etc and I spent the whole thread using that as the leap-off point for the serious noms


    In my defence I posted a 'qualified' list about 10 times over the past week, I wish you had let me know earlier that he was meant to be on there, technically.


    EDIT - Ravi Jadeja has replaced JP Duminy

    Waugh then. Totally underrated as an ODI all rounder.

    was just fatigued and wanted to get this going. extending the list from 32 to 64 really allowed some nuffies to sneak in ha

    i just cant see any justification for Duminy. i dont rate his bowling highly enough for this. at least bopara did the rounds at domestic level

    Irani probably deserves it more than Bopara for that tho. O what a mess. lets get to round 2 already
