Glenn Stiemens from Rockingham Software who are releasing their cricket game Cricket Coach have further information on the game.
In the first indepth focus article on Cricket Coach's features, we take a look at international management.
In Cricket Coach, you are given the opportunity to take control of any of the ten test playing nations. Even if you don't opt to take charge of one of these when you start your managerial career, the chances are if you are successful at club level you will be offered an international job. With this in mind, a lot of work has been put into making international management exciting.
International competitions consist of the World Cup, Champions Trophy and a whole host of test and one day tours. The aim is to win as many test and one day matches as possible to ensure you rise in both the test and one day international rankings tables - failure to do so could place your job in jeopardy.
With the variety of locations you'll be playing at, it will be essential to select the right balance with regards to your squad. You will be forced to make the difficult decisions over whether to select an extra spinner or perhaps an extra batsman when touring the subcontinent for example. Your selections should be based both upon skill ratings and also the form and fitness of a player - picking an excellent player might not be the best idea if he is low on form and fitness! To aid you with the squad selection process we've included a handy 'pool' screen. This screen lists all the players eligible for selection.
To further increase the ease of making selection decisions, a helpful filter and sort system has been included. You can opt to include a whole host of different types of players or narrow your search down to just a off spin bowler who can open the batting. You can also opt to sort your search results by any criteria you like - for instance you can sort by first class innings or even player wages.
As you can see, a tremendous amount of effort has been placed into making international management an exciting experience.
The game is set to be released on Friday March 17th and we will bring you details on how you can purchase it.
