Re: Why is it hard to get batsmen?

I'd guess this is because for bowlers, extreme weakness at variety or movement isn't a problem - they can still play a specialist role. Whereas for batsmen, extreme weakness in either shot selection or defence is killer. The nature of batting and getting out means that big mistakes are not balanced...

Re: Superstars

1/10th wouldn't be the right number in any case - the penalty should probably be something like 20% of the batting bonus and 25% of the bowling bonus (noting that there's only likely to be 4-5 other bowlers, and 5-6 other recognised batsmen). I'm assuming that the bonus / penalty are based on the s...

Re: Stumped conversation: Wasim Akram

Remembering him at Lancs, he was brutal at times with the bat. Would be thinking his Attack would be higher and defence lower

Re: New character

Basically, you want to know if we're actually going to get any new characteristics? So the question is: Are we? And if so, is it a small job or a big job? I think we do need to add in a new opening seamer characteristic. And there are others that are cool. :) They are on the list, they aren't anywh...

Re: New character

Well, people are guessing that the reason they can't all be done is due to limited development time and possibly making some of the current traits less widespread. As well as of course some of them might not be code able. If its down to limited development time then a vote could be relevant to decid...

Re: Season 24

Hit 350 against ProC. Majozi hit 6 sixes in 17 balls. Surely they can't chase that down which pretty much knocks them out of the Div 1 title chase. Could do with Woody holding off Setameres before we play them next season. No chance i'm afraid, Setameres are a complete bogey team of mine. I think e...

Re: SA T20 Internationals

Well done Paul ... better than me. Didn't think you get experience for NT games though did you ? Not 100% sure on that though. I was at a loss to explain our poor form when I was in charge as tactics that worked at club level didn't seem to work. We were swamped with superstars though which may have...

Re: automatic order

That would be helpful, as a newbie it might be nice to just have sort of sensible line up as a starting point.
