The main problem is that it would change from time to time, unless we went for all classic players. I know it's tough to imagine, but eventually people may forget about Alex Barrow.
But I'm up for keeping the rankings fresh! I did something very much like this on a Nintendo forum. I would, however, need contributions of particular fan-favourite players (and fan-loathed players) from up and down the CC. I can probably do Middlesex, maybe Warks.
Oh - Dernbach or Haddin for the second-lowest rank?
Okay, nothing set in stone but I figured I'd create something just to get us started.
0: Danish Kaneria 1: Jade Dernbach 5: Alex Barrow 10: Keaton Jennings 20: Karl Brown 40: Rob Key 60: Steve Magoffin 80: James Vince 100: Young Jonny Bairstow 150: Alastair Cook 500: Jack Shantry 25000: WG Grace.
I had the post counts higher at first - 0, 1, 25, 50, 100, 200 right up to Shantry at 10,000 - but I didn't want to stuck with a load of Jade Dernbachs for weeks..
As the forum ages the numbers will increase. For now if you have any changes you make do say - it's all for just a bit of fun.
Aye, I think that's a good starting point. Ideally, I think we'd want someone from each county (possibly two from Surrey and whoever Kaneira/Grace used to play for), to give everyone good/bad representation. (I'd nominate Fireball for 30, but we may want to save the lower ranks for Leics. and Kent players.) Although that will lead to problems with people like Sri protesting that Durham's chosen player is a rubbish one...
Oh, and - James Vince above Steve Magoffin? Hampshire bias scorching through!
Balladeer: Happy new year and Christmas and all that to all. (Sorry - again, I mostly browse on mobile, so didn't see your earlier wishes!)

pierredelafranchesca: Gale and Pyrah to support Lions as coaches.....OK, i mean Gale has been shit for Yorks and is potentially neck deep in this racism case, but sure why not. In fact, keep the useless prick.

Balladeer: Definitely needed to be a thread. I came up with one of the same answers as you because I can't see the chatbox on mobile.
