How to pick the best cricketer in any format of the game?

Recently ICC awards 2010 were announced and I began wondering how the process works. I haven't seen any good documentation of the process, so I started thinking  how would I do it. Here's my version. Thoughts?



Note: I is impossible to determine this by number crunching only as there are many factors that are not qualitative e.g. on and off-field behavior etc.
