*********************************************************************************



The above lists the worlds greatest all time cricketers according to a new ranking formula.


The game of cricket has always been about runs/wickets/catches… the required disciplines reflecting player contributions to a game which ultimately determines a result.


To reward fielding contributions a catch has been classed as a wicket.


(Qualification 50 Test Matches = reasonable longevity)

(Formula (100 runs = 5 wkts)

(Rating = runs/Tests + wkts/Test x 20 + catches/Test x 20)


The formula can be used to highlight contribution and performance during a game/series/season. It can be used to reflect player development but above all it creates conversation.
