I'm not sure. In the past 3 weeks there have been 2 batsmen over 45 potential on the TM, both are due to go for well over 1mil.
Meanwhile there have been at least 4 bowlers of the same skill on the TM and they're not hitting 1mil.
Take, for instance:http://www.stumpedgame.com/player.php?Player=185884
Both 48 potential. The batsman is erratic, the bowler is a crowd pleaser with F&G. Yet the batsman is worth 8 times more, apparently.
Finding that top order batsman is really tough. I've got plenty of players I would consider middle order batsmen, but only a couple of top order batsmen.
