A fun game I thought we could do. We'd need pretty much all our active members to play for it too really work though.
Basically the idea is that everyone compiles a list of who they think the greatest players, who have made their debuts after 1999, are, in order. Just like in this thread, but doing 20 instead of 5. Each player in your list will get points, the higher they're ranked by you, the more points they get. I've explained exactly how many points each player in your list will get below. After everyone has done their list, PM it to me, I'll tally up the points and we'll get a final list, based on everyone's individual list. This final list will represent who the Cricfire members think have been the best players of the very modern era.
When I find out the whole list, I'll post the results. However, I want it to be fun so I'll reveal who came were in stages. So for instance first I'll reveal who came 20th-15th, and then 14th-10th etc...I'll also do a summary on each player, much like Cricinfo player profiles.
How the Point system will work.
Where the person is ranked on your list - how many points they'll get
1st - 20 points
2nd - 19 points
3rd - 18 points
4th - 17 points
19th - 2 points
20th - 1 point
Let me know if you want to do it, or have any more questions.
Cliffs Version: Rank, in order, the best 20 cricketers in your opinion , who made their debut after January 1st, 2000. Base it on their careers so far, and not on potential or form. I.e. what they did iin 2003 holds just as much weight as what they did last week. PM it to me.
