    Yeah, I think he just looked reasonably priced because there was nobody comparable up for auction at that particular time. There's a few more reasonable options I'm looking at now.

    Another query, then. Does this guy's concentration mean he'll be a totally useless batsman? I realise he's not that good anyway, but he's better in most respects than my current second spinner who bats at 8, and he's currently going for 1k, so if I could get him for 20 or so it'd be a pretty reasonable deal I think.

    His batting will be pretty poor I reckon, though he is at 8 I guess. He's next to no use as a bat and 20k would be expensive for him.

    I have a med/med with woeful secondaries and comp stamina for 10k if you're interested? He's on list at the moment.

    Well he went for 7.5m in the end. I was quite worried when he was going for 5m with five minutes to go, thought I'd missed out on a huge bargain.

    My main spinner isn't playing and AKD is batting at 6 with my wicketkeeper batting at 3 but apart from that yeah - they were all sublime fitness apart from Norris and the match i have left is a walkover.

    My team is looking gun, though I`m almost bankrupt. Really need training to give my players a lift, and I could win my first match.

    I can't help but be tempted by this for 1.9m:

    Nathaniel Nightingale (445393)
    RH Batsman, RM Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, sublime
    A destructive player with superb leadership skills and abysmal experience.

    Plays For: DeeAreBees11
    Nationality: England

    Battrick Rating: 12,644
    Wages: £2,815 p/w
    Stamina: abysmal Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: worthless Concentration: worthless
    Bowling: quality Consistency: feeble
    Fielding: abysmal

    A bit like the guy I'm training up for profit:


    Craig Khuliso (543602)
    RH Batsman, RM Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, sublime
    A destructive player with woeful leadership skills and abysmal experience.

    Plays For: Scaly Piscine CC
    Nationality: Australia
    Age: 19 Years Old
    Battrick Rating: 12,582
    Wages: £3,252 p/w

    Stamina: worthless Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: woeful Concentration: worthless
    Bowling: superb Consistency: mediocre
    Fielding: worthless

    He's not popped in bowling yet but he will do shortly, no idea when the stamina will pop. I bought them for 1m. Should be able to sell for 2m at least, even if I only train the stamina to abysmal.



    Another guy I'm training up for a profit is this one:

    Gordon Terry (59288)
    RH Batsman, RFM Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, sublime
    An attacking player with respectable leadership skills and woeful experience.

    Plays For: Scaly Piscine CC
    Nationality: Australia
    Age: 25 Years Old
    Battrick Rating: 11,696
    Wages: £3,169 p/w

    Stamina: feeble Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: strong Concentration: feeble
    Bowling: mediocre Consistency: woeful
    Fielding: feeble

    He was 914k. Should take 1-3 weeks to pop, if I'm lucky I'll get a concentration pop as well. Should be able to sell them on later for 1.5m or something like that. The weakest of my now 7 strong+ bats.
