And specialists are in demand, too, especially specialist opening bowlers.

Hell, I've been after one for ages, too. 2 actually, one for each team. And there's nothing. Ireland was the one who came available, but I couldn't spend that much of my affiliate's budget on an upgrade rather than a needed player. Now, as I pulled a keeper, I would. But the chance has gone, so it's a waiting game again.

It just feels like the TM has really tightened.


But I’m not at all looking for a proper all-rounder on the tier of Ireland or even a top class bowler who can bat. I still don’t believe that the par price for an experienced 37 skilled swing bowler who is also an average bat and fielder, would be over 1 million. Heck, I even said in my reply to Rich that I might just ditch any kind of batting requirement if that’s what bumps up prices so much.

For instance Squarebear’s player if he was 10mph faster would be fine, in fact I’d say that he’s more skilled with the all than required.

Do you ever get the feeling that in a couple years time, most teams will have no batsmen and eleven bowlers, who would all prefer to bowl at the death. Whilst any passable all rounder will be worshipped as a batting god.

I have five specialist bowlers and poor-ish batsmen for my team's league level - I must be ahead of the curve!
