Perhaps that statistic suggests I'm not missing very much.
Me neither, how many 'followers' would the average man on the street have? I'm guessing Broad and Anderson have a bigger presence than Root because they have been around longer.

I have about a 1200. Built most of them up a while ago but have fallen out of love/don't have the time to use it as I once did so stagnated somewhat. Used it professionally, and gained sufficient profile that people I met for the first time had heard of me through Twitter beforehand.

Rumours that it might be switched off in 2017 anyway.

Oh look, the editor of the Cricketer thinks he's more influential than the editor of Wisden!

I saw that list this morning and p!ssed myself. The notion that "Aggers" is more powerful / influential than the England coach is, quite frankly, risible.

When it comes to Wisden, surely it's not any particular editor that has any influence, it's to annual itself, the bible of cricket.

A contestant on Make me an Egghead was able to identify Colin Graves as ECB chairman, which I thought fairly impressive.

I think Farbrace is far to low. He is responsible for the England ODI team playing like they are. I'd have him in the top 10.

He might have more influence next year when/if he's the Yorkshire coach.

Whereas the editor of the Cricketer has?

(although let's hope the editor of the Cricketer's influence wins out when it comes to the subject of (not) picking Bell for India)

The Editor of Wisden writes the notes, commissions the articles in the most influential cricketing publication and has the authority of the Wisden pulpit to allow us glorious moments like this http://www.telegraph.co.uk/sport/cri...nce-Booth.html

Do you think so? I think he will stay with England and as there is so much cricket there is talk that Bayliss will get a rest and Farbrace will be in charge of some tours.

Only just remembered Farbrace isn't going to Bangladesh.

Surely Chris Broad should feature highly on this list?

Just below Johnny Bairstow's mum, presumably.

Wrote the foreword to his book, worked together at Channel 4 etc

The fact that Giles Clarke is in there almost made me recycle my lunch.
