Yes, they can, if they're close enough to the boundary (the opposite happened to Harry Todd, who went from FS to WS). AFAIK spin types are similar to that of pace -- it's more of a spectrum than a binary classification.


Changes from FS to WS (and vice versa) are not supposed to happen - if/when it does happen, it is a bug (and should be reported in the bugs forum).


I didnt even know this , ive changed them with Pace training upwards never backwards with variation etc . Taught it was a function , done it twice intentionally a while back when is was running a high Moisture home ground .

What is the longest a team has gone without winning a toss in a league ?

I am currently 0 for 6 in OD and 1 for 6 in T20 So one toss win for my senior captain in 12 games.

Am I right in thinking there's an inbuilt weighting to batter success based on their position in the order?

E.g. if I had eleven equally skilled batters in my side I'd find that in the fullness of time batter 1 would perform best and batter 11 worst?

Or is this just a bad case of confirmation bias after tweaking my batting order?

A bit of both?

AFAIK, position is relevant to individual players when taken in context with the players around them.

It's about batting to come and the score on the board already. I know my #6 isn't going to have as good an average as my #4, but that's not because he's necessarily worse, it's because sometimes he comes in late game when he only has to try and smash it out the park. So he can get out for a low score, but he's just done his job.

Meanwhile, #1 might average 35, but if he's scoring at 65SR, he's going to be putting undue pressure on your middle order. So a batsman who averages 30 but at 90SR might be better, even though his average is lower.

Also, some players just perform better elsewhere. It's about finding balance. I shifted Bradfield from #5 to #2, and then to #3, and it drastically improved the performance of the team as a whole without changing Brad's average. So his change in position benefited the team but not him personally. So the improvement for my #4 is more down to Brad's change in position than anything to do with him.

TL;DR: it's complicated. Basically, no.

It comes down to shot choice. Pushes usually lead to better averages and lower strike rate and vice versa with attacks and slogs. Generally the higher the position in the order, the higher the ratio of push to attack/slogs. Although various other variables influence it such as match position. So all things being equal (which is never the case) higher order bats usually have better averages because they are pushing more.

Generally you want to put players into scenarios they can use their strengths and hide their weakness so it can be a waste to use your best attacking player as an opener in 50 overs as they won't use their attack as much - a player with higher defence is more useful then.

Thanks both. That's highlighted some areas I've been turning a blind eye to. My solid yet sluggish opening pair generally leave me in situations where I need one or other of my late middle order to rattle up a rapid 70-odd, which more often than not they fail to do.

My prior question was prompted by a minor thing - noticing that a guy (11-12-7) who averages 13 batting at 9 has shown signs of improvement since I moved him up to 6.

Hi. Just started.

Have this 18yo 46 potential that looks nice for my team right now. Is he a great player to train for the future, or is it better to look for younger potential to train?

He is certainly worth sticking with. 46 is a good potential, he is high attacking & has complimentary trait of finisher. He also has good fielding. Give him plenty of game time and a coaching session each week and he’ll achieve those potentials and be a strong asset to your side.

His fitness is good enough you should be able to play him three games a week. That will get his experience and batting skills up. They are OK for a young 18 yr old. If you can get a decent batting coach on him (level 6 to 10) on him a train his attacking skill that will help get this up towards 18. Leave shot selection until the end and you should be able to get that up to 12.

and I wouldn't buy any more than 3 experienced players. You should be able to win bot leagues without them anyway. Try and get a squad of 11 youth players with decent potentials (43+ ideally) and 3 more experienced players so you can rotate any youth players that get low on fitness.

Some nice advice Woody & Garth. That helps!

My good luck with that original squad member, 3 games a week and some courses for my coaches being done :)
