thread about this in the Site Discussion forum once. I think it should be permissible to update opening posts in threads of this nature for as long as necessary.

Tendulkar would be slightly better and Clarke/Ponting slightly worse. While recent form is important to the system, if a player is still playing and is an all-time great like Punter the difference in his batting won't be huge.
The important thing is that, irrespective of the time difference, the system I used in the second database is far more accurate and far more suited to a competition of 16+ teams. Reckon it'd feel more fun and accurate to have players by their current abilities anyway.
