Have you got Oram's 59 score in injury proneness one of the very worst of all 4921 players?
A few home ground corrections:
Basin Reserve for Wellington
University Oval for Otago rather than Carisbrook
Village Green destroyed in Feb 2012 earthquake, Hagley Oval for Cantabs
Heck yeah I considered things people said on here and last season's thread, then went away and investigated them myself. For example you can't really argue with Henry's quality, and I'd consider rating him above the likes of Arnell and McKay (I think he's better), but then the game would pick Henry ahead of them for NZ. And the selectors aint that smart
Sodhi looks a top prospect; his club performances last year were really impressive (can't remember where I got the stats from now), his U19I showings are decent, and it's understandable why there's a bit of a buzz about him.
Yes I took Southee up to FM just the other day after seeing him touch 140 in the WC. Thanks for the other pointers on bowling speeds, you know
how unreliable the likes of Cricinfo are. I made Colin MF a while back now so I'm not sure if you've got the very
latest DB: lob these two files into the DB instead of the same-named ones that are there and it's bang up to date: CC 12 LATEST.rar
That Butler pointer is really
invaluable, thanks! I think I'll go FM for now, as long as he can hit 134/5 still.
As for Oram's 59 IPR: as it happens the most injury-prone player in the DB is a Kiwi. See if you can guess/spot him...he's a seamer.
Any other info on incorrect bowling speeds would be brilliant. Is Van Beek genuinely quick, for example? This calls him "medium-pace"! http://www.cricketeurope4.net/DATABA...9/000933.shtml
Bowling ratings also give me sleepless nights at times...I'm still not sure if I have Small and Neesham quite right. I'm on a bit of a mission to get all nations pitched at the right levels relatively, but then you look at Jarvis's figures last season and wonder about the standard sometimes.
And thanks for the stadia info-I didn't use to be able to edit that part of the DB, but I can now, so I'll get to building (and demolishing).
I'm also a big
fan of Dutch cricket and will try and get their league in the game soon, which is packed with Kiwis. There's a few in the lower league too, but this may be of interest to people to see how the top-flight guys over there have been going this season: Topklasse Statistics
