This is T20 month although it does include a CC1 match in the middle. I think we ought to consider the Warwickshire game with the 3 games in September and simply assess this on the basis of the T20 campaign. I have not included James or Jerome or Lewis as although they were involved I doubt they will garner very many votes for their involvement.

How on earth does Jamie Overton have a vote, for the T20, having gone for 10+ an over, without taking a single wicket?

Incredible.

Somebody likes him and doesn't look at the stats as much as you do?

Looking at the stats totally unnecessary - all one would need is a vague idea of what happened in the games in question.

How do I vote for Jerome?

You should probably keep your own council on these votes, Agod.

Seems people might be having a chuckle at your expense.

Yes... they (the two that voted after my comment) are predictably juvenile, indeed, Nailsea. I agree with you. I assume that, perhaps, the first voter was either making an ironic point or, else, they didn’t read the instructions that this was a T20 poll.

If the poll gets silly (and we have had one that did a few years ago.

I'll simply take options out and redo it. It's not a long job.

That’s what I like to see, Grockle. If you don’t like the result of a vote make them do it again.

It can only "get silly" if the list of options is "silly" surely.



A glass half - empty or a glass half - full?
Regardless, both glasses need filling up.

Or you look at the list of options in a 'silly' way Tom

But surely it's proper for Grockle to give us as wide a range of options to vote on as is (reasonably) reasonable?
Tom, would you really be in favour of Grockle making his own shortlist of worthy candidates before giving the rest of us the chance to vote?
I have to say, voting for an obviously nonsensical candidate just because another poster irritates you does strike me as a little bit childish.

Re: Poll: Player of the Month August 2019
Grockle 10 September, 2019 13:29
The level of silliness would have to be massive for me to have to do anything to this result anyway.

I think we are pretty much done people so I'll let it continue for about another 24 hours and then announce a result I doubt many will be surprised at.

I do hope you don't think it has been manipulated CH by those awful people who run this place. (Sm100)

, I don’t understand the point of this poll, Grockle, unless you actually send the winner a bottle of something or something so what the hell does it matter who wins - kudos?

Don't involve yourself then CH. We've been doing it for over 15 years but it isn't compulsory.

The August player of the month is

TOM BANTON


no real surprise there but a pretty significant first season in the formats.

Other sites run a player of the month so why not us.

Having said that I have noticed that I've missed July!!!

Will look at that.

Looking at the July games can I put something past people?

The start of July was CC1 games and then we were into the T20 campaign.

I doubt if we put a poll up, the vote would change in relation to the T20 player of the season - Tom Banton

The CC1 games would split the view and the vote for July I think.

So, I intend to provide a vote for the CC1 player of the second half of the season and ask people to take into account the second half of the season, the games in July, the one in the middle of the T20 and then the last September ones? Any problems with this?
