    Nice! It took me so long to get my first Hat Trick.
  2. weldone RM Chowdhuri

    Going great on a slow, as usual:

    D. Japaniya 6-0-42-1, R. Karandikar 36 (43b), A. Dutt 55 (55b)

    End of over 20 (10 runs) - weldone XI(122-2) RR 6.10

    In battrick it took me about 4 seasons. In FTP it took 4 games. :laugh:

    Varaiya on A I'm guessing because he's a weaker bat so his loss won't be so expensive?

    What's your reasoning exactly?
  5. Skippos SM Morgan

    Duyn should be your quickest bat. Essentially, putting him on D brings him back to the pack a little, but still should be your quickest bat or at worst even.

    But what it's also doing is minimising the risk associated with him, so he can score at a decent rate for prolonged periods.

    Boyle's a liability at the moment, low power, tech > bat so he's set to be slow and get into ruts. Speeding him up a bit, essentially.

    How the hell does weldone know my players? :lol:

    EDIT: Thanks Skippos. Will try it out and see how it goes. Boyle been pretty solid so far, usually scores fast for me. But yes, bridging the gap and then giving him power.

    Generally, if there are no opener/seam specialist/spin specialist/finisher/BH/accumulator talents, I generally open with my best and 6th best or so batsman - and keep the lesser batsman on aggressive, and the best one on normal (let my best batsman play his natural game, in Ravi Shastri's cliched words :p ). If I'm playing with 5 batsmen, this 6th best might be the allrounder or the keeper in some cases.

    However, if one of my batsmen is opener/seam specialist, I definitely open with him. Also, if one among the two (best and 6th best) is spin specialist/accumulator/finisher, I don't open with him and pick another similar batsman in stead.

    In reality, among my batsmen in my current team one has opener talent, 1 finisher, 1 spin specialist and 2 boundary hitters. The opener is my 4th best batsman. So, I keep him on aggressive, and his partner is the best batsman among the rest (but definitely not the spin specialist or the finisher) on normal.

    That's the rough guideline I follow - but change strategies depending on situations.

    Almost forgot, this guy popped to accomplished fielding last week, should I move to training him in bowling now?

    Seriously advise against opening with allrounder unless they're capable bat or below for fatigue reasons. especially if chasing.
  13. weldone RM Chowdhuri

    Probably because I didn't go to your club overview page, and went straight to your senior team page through the link you provided in your earlier post?
  14. Skippos SM Morgan

    Evans - move to bowl tech.

    Moss - keep on WKB. I've never taken a keeper off it before 25
  15. Teacups CJ Evans

    I thought that's what Skippos did and his name appeared :p

    Maybe he navigated manually
  16. Starris ER Starris

    bugger - lost my youth match... I outrated him but he had better bowlers and it was a green and he had 3 mediums two of which were better than my best bowler.

    oh well I still have the rest of the season to chase him down.
  17. weldone RM Chowdhuri

    In the match ratings 'Fielding/Keeping' number what fraction is contributed by the keeper and what fraction by the other 10 fielders - does anybody know?

    If not, then I might ask Ash.
