    You've got to include their levels as well though.

    Fair enough, though i would of thought it would be the last 10 overs.

    I'll need to train his stamina up but his remarkable batting in div 5 makes up for it

    Captain - no idea?

    The only reason Gray is there is because I don't know any other keepers. Not 100% what Herbert and Tuck are at - but I'd say they're definitely up there.
    Herbert to captain (blowing own trumpet, I know, but he's a strong leader with woeful XP).

    Close contest for the keepers:

    Marvin Gray - 19 yo, BT Rating=22,598
    RH Batsman, RH Spin Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, energetic
    A defensive player with abysmal leadership skills and woeful experience.
    Stamina: respectable Wicket Keeping: competent
    Batting: strong Concentration: strong
    Bowling: abysmal Consistency: competent
    Fielding: feeble


    1. David Armstrong - 19 yo, BT Rating=47,838
    RH Batsman, RH Spin Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, sublime
    A cautious player with worthless leadership skills and abysmal experience.
    Stamina: competent Wicket Keeping: respectable
    Batting: respectable Concentration: sensational
    Bowling: abysmal Consistency: proficient
    Fielding: mediocre

    Batting overall is about the same in my opinion given 3 levels of concentration is roughly one level of batting. Obviously mine has the edge in keeping.

    But Gray has it in stamina, albeit slightly. Guess it depends what kind of player you're looking for.

    Defaintly Armstrong as we have a remarkable batting at 6 he wont be required to wield the willow that often, plus that sensational concentration probably makes him equal to Gray.

    Yeah it's pretty close, actually I'm pretty sure there are better players than Gray, Armstrong and Mccammon going around. For me, Mccammon isn't that great because his stamina is such a liability. Probably put Hamshaw (Nibbs) in instead of Mccammon and find a better keeper.

    Gray and Armstrong are pretty even, Gray appears to have the edge in batting but with the batsmen above whoever gets the spot, batting won't make too much of a difference. So I'd say, if you're looking for a bit of batting as well, you would go for Gray (he's close to Superb batting/Resp keeping anyway). If you want the best keeper, it's obviously Armstrong. But IMO, if you were going to go for Armstrong for his keeping, you may as well go for a specialist keeper anyway.

    Isn't Hamshaw only a superb? Though i do agree that Mcammon is a liability because of his stamina.

    Do you think its worth it to give him two fitness nets?

    I wouldn't say Gray has the edge in batting looking at their records in friendlies, which should be against similar opposition (if anything you'd have had easier games with better morale). For keeping secondaries play a part in it as well, so he's better than a normal respectable keeper. He should be about half-way up both batting and keeping (not getting keeping training at the moment and the records I keep are on my old computer).

    Nah I think Mccammon is still better despite his stamina, and if you're going to include Hamshaw, Wynand is theoretically a better batsman anyway (and has the higher fielding rating to put him ahead). There are better batsmen though.

    LH Batsman, LFM Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, lively
    A defensive player with feeble leadership skills and woeful experience.
    Stamina: competent Wicket Keeping: feeble
    Batting: superb Concentration: superb
    Bowling: competent Consistency: respectable
    Fielding: competent

    One of PY's is superb/comp/comp but with proficient fielding.

    I didn't say he had a big advantage, but IMO a Strong/Strong offers more than a Resp/Sensational, because despite Armstrong's awesome secondaries (which would make him an even better keeper), he's still only a Resp bat. Can't believe you'd even look at friendlies... they're as unreliable a guide to what a player is like as normal OD stats.

    Still, I don't think either deserve to be in the team, there has to be a better keeper out there somewhere.

    Also, Hak, tell us what Herbert and Tuck are!

    Educated guesses (apart from the ones I actually know):

    1. Fitz Watkins - remarkable bat, strong bowl
    2. Usmal Jayasuriya - superb bat
    3. Sol Cuss - remarkable bat
    4. Jason Duggan - quality bat
    5. Shaka Herbert - superb bat
    6. Grady Mccammon - remarkable bat
    7.(wk) Marvin Gray/David Armstrong - see above
    8. Dwight Tuck - superb bowl
    9. Ricky Louis - remarkable bowl
    10. Swagat Moodley - quality bowl (maybe remarkable)
    11. Jason Lovegrove - wonderful bowl

    Cuss and Watkins are both close to wonderful, don't know about the rest.

    I guess Bardle would be close to being a bowling reserve.

    My keeper is:

    Rakesh Ahmed - 20 yo, BT Rating=14,420
    RH Batsman, RFM Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, sublime
    A defensive player with abysmal leadership skills and abysmal experience.
    Stamina: mediocre Wicket Keeping: proficient
    Batting: respectable Concentration: respectable
    Bowling: abysmal Consistency: competent
    Fielding: feeble

    I'd go for him as he won't need to bat and he has the best wk skill.

    Chanderpaul is the only other character of mine to be near the side as Adam mentioned:

    Sandeep Chanderpaul - 19 yo, BT Rating=19,555
    RH Batsman, RM Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, sublime
    A destructive player with competent leadership skills and feeble experience.
    Stamina: competent Wicket Keeping: abysmal
    Batting: superb Concentration: competent
    Bowling: abysmal Consistency: competent
    Fielding: proficient

    Not quite there but on the fringes.
