    When I play Obeysekera as 5th bowler (mainly when I rest both Jeithoon and Muralitharan). I play him on normal, as I don't notice a significant reduction in runs on defensive. But when he plays we are usually into teams tail when he bowls anyway. If he plays against a decent batting line up he usually goes for 60 to 70 regardless whether he is normal or defensive. But he might pick a flukey wicket on normal.

    I would go normal, but it depends on how much faith you have in your main four bowlers.

    Would love a bit of input, advice, suggestions re: my bowling for next season. This season, my main attack has been Verhoeven, Meyer, Groves, Hamlin & Savage, with Bosnich playing only 1 game due to PFL issues (he's on 3 bowling nets). However, if I want to continue to compete, and possibly even have a shot at 2nd place next season, I really do need another good bowler.

    Of the 6 bowlers below, Bosnich & Meyer are the only 2 I definitely won't be selling, whilst I'm prepared to sell any 2 of the other 4, in order to improve my attack as a whole. I've currently got 1.5m in the bank, so I'm hoping to add that onto what I get from the sale of 2 others to buy someone. Where I'm stuck is, which 2 bowlers should I sell. I originally was going to just sell Groves & Savage, but then I'm probably only going to get enough for a remarkable bowler. Would I be better off Selling one of Verhoeven/Hamlin with Groves or Savage, to get a bit more $$ and possibly go for a wonderful, or even Exceptional bowler?

    The teams that are currently 2nd & 3rd have a few sensationals (possibly even 1 exquisite) between them. As well as some wonderfuls & remarkables. The teams in 5th & 6th have a 3-4 quality/remarkables between them, but I guess with training some of them will be wonderful now.

    Are you still training Verhoeven and if he is close to wonderful I would probably keep him and finish him at exceptional. If you have stopped training Verhoeven, but you have a few nets free I would sell Verhoeven and Groves and get a decent wonderful plus (preferably attacked minded) fast bowler you can train.

    If you are training Verhoeven and his close to wonderful, and have no nets free. I would just sell Groves and Savage and get a decent quality bowler, or average remarkable bowler.

    A lot really depends on where Verhoeven is. If you have stopped training I would upgrade on him and Groves.

    Yeah I've stopped training Verhoeven. If I can get at least 5.5 for him like Smith is with his Remarkable/Quality bowler, and around 2.3-2.5 for Groves I'll have just over 9m. Judging by the Market, that might almost snare me an exceptional, which would be ace.

    Should've posted this here in the first place.


    So, this is my current setup for nets:

    Ed Mills, 20, 1 bowl
    Jimmy Knowles, 19, 2 bowl, 1 field
    Matthew Wilberforce, 18, 2 bat
    Neale Gleeson, 20, 1 bowl, 1 field
    Nicolas Dhindsa, 19, 2 bat

    According to AtStumps, this will be current training at the end of each season.

    Code:
    Name           Current (Age)       Season 10 (Age)       Season 11 (Age)
    Mills          remark/qual (20)    wonder/remark (21)    except/except (22)
    Knowles        wond/prof (19)      except/qual (20)      exquis/except (21)
    Wilberforce    superb/prof (18)    remark/strong (19)    wonder/qual (20)
    Gleeson        sens/qual (20)      exquis/except (21)    master/master (22)
    Dhindsa        remark/prof (19)    wonder/strong (20)    sens/qual (21)
    Now, Gleeson I'm happy with where he is and how he'll be at the end of that season.

    However, if I add/change nets to the following (those underlined are the ones I'm seriously considering changing whilst those that aren't but with added nets are just a plausible 'what if?'):

    Ed Mills, 20, 1 bowl, 1 field
    Jimmy Knowles, 19, 2 bowl, 1 field, 1 WK
    Matthew Wilberforce, 18, 2 bat, 1 field
    Neale Gleeson, 20, 1 bowl, 1 field, 1 WK
    Nicolas Dhindsa, 19, 2 bat, 1 field

    Changes in their outcomes bolded and underlined in the code box.

    Code:
    Name		Current (Age)	 Season 10 (Age)	Season 11 (Age)
    Mills		remark/qual (20) wonder/except (21)	except/master (22)
    Knowles		wond/prof (19)	 except/remark (20)	exquis/master (21)
    Wilberforce	superb/prof (18) remark/qual (19)	wonder/except (20)
    Gleeson		sens/qual (20)	 exquis/exquis (21)	master/elite (22)
    Dhindsa		remark/prof (19) wonder/qual (20)	sens/except (21)

    Of course, for this to happen, I would have to take two nets from somewhere. I was perhaps thinking of selling Dhindsa, tbh.

    Ideas? Recommendations?

    I'd say forget about the WK nets and forget about double-netting their primaries. Just give them all a primary and fielding net or get more trainees. I'd only sell Dhindsa if you think you need to change the balance of the team, wouldn't sell just to free up nets as you don't currently have a more efficient use for them.

    Edit: of course you could add a stamina net somewhere, unless they're all superb.

    Exceptional what though, for what it is worth Jeithoon was useless at exceptional/superb. he rarely was knocking over remarkable plus batsmen. It your going to buy in a exceptional player, and he is your best players for a couple seasons. Then they need to be around exceptional/exceptional. Also when your wages increase with those type of players your needs atleast a 1 mil to play wages.

    Reckon you might be struggling to get a exceptional bowler and if so you might just be getting an average one. Which might not really help you team against better sides.

    But if your not training Verhoeven then I would sell him and Groves. But I would wait till after you have sold all your YPs next season. So you might have a bit more money to spend. Rather then buy someone now.

    Gah!! I don't have enough nets to train my players as I'd like. Can anyone help?

    And the players:

    A defensive player with worthless leadership skills and abysmal experience.
    Stamina: respectable Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: strong Concentration: mediocre
    Bowling: quality Consistency: respectable

    A destructive player with worthless leadership skills and abysmal experience.
    Stamina: mediocre Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: proficient Concentration: proficient

    5. Shaun Huddlestone - 19 yo, BT Rating=27,929
    RH Batsman, RM Bowler, strong batting form, proficient bowling form, invigorated fitness.
    An attacking player with respectable leadership skills and woeful experience.
    Stamina: mediocre Wicket Keeping: quality
    Batting: superb Concentration: competent
    Bowling: competent Consistency: respectable
    Fielding: worthless

    I really wanted a batting net for Huddlestone, as I think he's pretty close to being 'quality' batting. Hopefully near to 'respectable' concentration.

    Am I wasting my time training Stuart Batty??

    If he less then six weeks off quality batting and resp con you can always take the stamina net off for a short time.

    Would appreciate some input for training on this guy, have had him for about a season now and would like opinions on what sort of nets I should be giving him. I hope he'll become pretty gun for me but I don't know if I should focus on making him awesome and have him lead my bowling attack or sell him.
