    I hope so but no idea what it looks like without a contract, whether fast > fast medium or not. I suspect that fast medium go for fewer runs but fast takes more wickets. So weíll have to see

    Who needs a contact when there is a boost

    But yeah we need to see some more matches to conclude something out of it.

    Two boosts will be going to the ARs, so the third can go to one bowler (for matches when we use 3).

    We did well but I think we can do better. Actually my thinking is if we play spicy, our spinners will do just as good if not better but our all rounders come into play (and we have to play them regardless since the all rounders are our only other spinning options). We will also be boosting them so actually we will have 3 top class spinners/wicket takers on a spicy pitch, as well as better batting depth than the other team since we are playing two boosted all rounders (which is equivalent to 8 batsmen, 4 of whom are diamond class)

    Letís try both normal and spicy and see which works better?

    Indeed. We will try out the spicy pitch as well in the practice matches and see what happens.

    Absolutely agree with you about the allrounders.

    I have no issues with changes , as long as final database is done (covering all 6 teams).

    If you think change will make your team better then go for it.

    @Thunderbolt14 letís ask some practice matches.

    We could go for two matches at home and one away.

    Any ideas for the opposition, I was thinking about Misbah United, Pindi Boyz and Cerebral Assassinís.

    Let me know.

    @Thunderbolt14 want 6 batsmen, just for the guarantee?
    If you guys wants changes like add batsman in exchange for Bowlers or AR. Please do it quicker. So you can see it on trial matches.

    I was thinking of converting one fast bowler to a batsman as this will give us less variety but the option of a 7-man batting attack (it seems there is no benefit to playing 4 bowlers vs 5 bowlers in terms of variety, so Iím thinking we should switch @Invincible Gujjar to a batsman and play 7 pure batsmen, 2 all rounders (spinners), 1 pure spinner diamond (you) and 1 fast bowler (me). It seems like this would be the optimal use of resources. This way Gujjar bhai will also be able to play more matches.

    On fast bowling friendly pitches we will swap the AR spinners with AR fast bowlers. For shorter formats, we will still have the option for 5 bowlers as we have Wasim Akram and QalandarFan.

    Is this okay? To summarize:

    Player type change for @Invincible Gujjar from (Bowl, Right Arm Fast, Right Arm Bat) to (Bat, Right Arm Bat)

    Regarding matches ó I want to try two ODI with our bowlers at the Cage. First one will be spin heavy 3/2 attack, on a spicy pitch. Second one will be spin heavy 3/2 attack on a flat pitch.

    For the third game request, we can do the First Class game 3/2 on a spicy pitch against the Cerebral Assassins like you agreed with @Moh@n on the other thread.

    I find the requested matches absolutely fine @Thunderbolt14 bhai.

    Also I agree with converting @Invincible Gujjar into a bat as I also saw in the sim that there is no difference between 4 bowlers and 5.

    One insight is that it might be beneficial to topload ó openers did really well in the game, so maybe play our best batsmen at those positions so they take the game longer.

    Yes indeed.

    Openers have done really well in both matches, however those pitches werenít that supporting for the bowlers.

    Letís see what happens on a seaming wicket...

    Agreed, but keep in mind they were playing an all pace attack so victory was expected. What are your thoughts about batting positions and boosts? Iím thinking top load, but not sure about boosts.

    Double boost AR + boost AR is one option
    Boost AR + boost AR + boost batsman is the second option

    I like the first option more personally

    Having followed the matches I agree with the batting position being top load.

    Batsmen are doing well...

    Also agree with the double boost AR as that could be the difference between us and another team.

    boost AR + boost AR + boost batsmen is also a good shout but I think that is more efficient for Test matches instead of LO...

    So letís see what happens during the LO games and once we know what suits us the best - we will choose once again...

    However double boost AR is our priority and hopefully it will turn out good.

    Some good lessons from the game. Analyzing the bowling unit: it seems that QalandarFan is more of a swing bowler whereas I am more of a seam bowler, given the ground characteristics (average seam, low swing). This will explain the drastic difference as we are the same bowler in all other respects. There should be no harm if we replace QalandarFan with Wasim Akram in the actual match (as we donít know what his actual stats are but surely they must be at least equal if not better). (There was also high bounce, which may or may not be relevant)

    Letís keep an eye out for grounds where there is a difference between Seam attributes and Swing attributes.

    Good analysis I was looking at the scorecard and I was wondering why QalandarFan went for a plenty of runs.

    Spinners did a okay job too.

    Iíve come to the conclusion that spicy pitches are offering something for the spinners and fast-bowlers.

    So we could play Wasim Akram or QalandarFan against MU and CA.



    Also I was thinking about playing spinners against CA and MU as they have pitches which offer something for the spinners.
