    The Forumer's Ashes

    Step up and compete. This is the thread where I sim a series of matches between a team of English CWers against a team of Aussie CWers, in real time, with each match of the actual Ashes. Each match will get day-by-day reports in the style of my reasonably well-recieved ICC thread.

    To sign up your player you need to make a post in here with:

    Player Name:
    Player Role: (Batsman / Wicket Keeper / Batting Allrounder / Allrounder / Bowling Allrounder / Bowler)
    Batting position:
    Bowling Style: (Fast / Fast-Medium / Medium-Fast / Medium / Off Spin / Leg Spin)
    Batting aggression: (Aggressive / Moderate / Defensive)

    For example

    Player Name: JHF Howe
    Player Role: Batting Allrounder
    Batting position: Opener
    Bowling Style: Medium
    Batting aggression: Moderate

    You'll also need to tell me whether you're an England or Australia supporter if I don't already know. If you notice that your side needs a particular sort of player more than others, it'll obviously work in your favour to sign up as that player.

    If you happen to support a team that doesn't compete in the Ashes (you poor bastards), you should go ahead and sign up anyway. I'll want your player for warm-up games for this summer, and if this works, it could well become an ongoing competition following any real series between sides with enough forumers, such as NZ v India next year.

    Feel free to ask questions on how it works.

    Off you go.

    Every 5 years we have an election and have to decide who are the least obnoxious out of all the men. Then one gets in and they age really quickly. Which is always fun to watch.

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    Will there be any method to calculate player ability, or will it be random?

    Not sure yet. There definitely won't be anything related to post counts. I do want to reward people who're taking an interest but if we've got enough players that might just come down to selection.
