    I'm off shopping for some pre off-season bargains (relatively speaking), in the hope of turning a fast buck for minimum effort. So far the main thing I've learnt is that there really aren't many names to go around in BT India, are there? I ended up looking at a match contested by 5 Alshauns, 4 Hameds, 3 each of Mohammed and Islam and then some randoms. Must be confusing as all hell to follow those matches.

    Not very realistic, either, seeing as back in real life Sreesanth seems to want to corner the world market on names.

    Also, just the one pop from my lot today -- Gibb to Wonderful bowling. He's got Remarkable+ cons, and he's cautious RFM.

    He's now in the clear as my second best bowler, ahead of the attacking Hirst and Brooker, but two levels behind the steady John.

    He's been taking quite a few wickets, notably with the new ball -- that's not something I really expected when I started handing him the fresh cherry.

    I'll train him to Exceptional and leave it at that. Despite him being only 21, and therefore trainable up to Sensational, I don't see too much benefit in having a super-bowler who's cautious. I need wickets, dammit!

    Cautious won't stop them taking wickets. See Summers.

    Downer seems to take quite a lot of wickets for a cautious player as well, have no real basis for comparison though.

    Only pop:

    11. Junior Harewood - 19 yo, BT Rating=46,337
    LH Batsman, LM Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, energetic
    A destructive player with feeble leadership skills and feeble experience.
    Stamina: proficient Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: worthless Concentration: woeful
    Bowling: remarkable Consistency: superb
    Fielding: quality

    Got him on a fielding net again as I too many nets and not enough trainees, will keep it till he reaches remarkable fielding. He should be pretty good next season, will pop to wonderful in a few weeks.

    BT cricket well and truly trouncing the RL version for me ATM. My RL team managed to break a 29 year record for the highest team total in a blind cricket Cup final, 217/7 in 30 overs, only to lose it again in three hours time, as our opponents rattled up 218/5 in the penultimate over - Lemmings, the lot of us! Six current and former internationals in our side…and we Choke! Mind you, didn't help that our keeper was knocked out when he took a full-blooded sweep in the mush, and our 6Ft10 fast bowler was stretchered off to A&E with a broken shin. All in all I've had better cricketing days!

    Meanwhile in the world of virtual cricket the Gurs closed to within NRR 1.16 of 1st place Whos Your daddy, after rattling up 300/4 against Victoria Drivers and dispatching them for 126. The news could have been even better, except Whos Your Daddy held their nerve to chase down 304 in exactly 50 against 4th place Veets.

    On Friday The Gurs face already-relegated Everton_Aggro, whilst Whos Your Daddy have an equally easy match against second-bottom, but not quite as inept, Chloe Crusaders. Reckon I can take another bite out of their lead, but I'm pretty certain it's all going to go down to the last round!

    A nice win over Rodgie in the CW Cup too, to set up a first ever meeting with Adam. I hope Cuss, (A BT childhood hero of many of my team), gets a century, but the Gurs close out a tight run chase (I can Dream!)

    One pop, and Noon becomes my first player through the 50K BTR barrier. Actually it must have happened last week, but I didn't notice then.

    Will take one of Wilde's bowling nets from him temporarily, to test out Jeffery's batting and bowling sub-levels. His wages would suggest that he's pretty close to Sup in something.

    Later, Trev

    Tar Scaly, though I'm not sure how much you'll be able to work out, because of his cocked up form. A career average of 70 with the bat and 30 with the ball would suggest that he's higher up batting, though given that the net I'm going to allocate him is already a bowling, I'll probably start off with that.

    Yea the form makes it more complex, I'd estimate his true BTR to be around 32,000, about midrange which doesn't tell us much.

    The secondaries/keeping take off 560-1080 from the wages, so that leaves the two strongs at least halfway on average (so one might still be low and the other high etc.)

    The secondaries should be a little lower than midway on average.

    So anyway there's hidden bonuses there in primaries and secondaries, just have to find them out by training him.

    Cheers Mate, like I say, I'll start him on one bowling net and see what happens.

    How far away is he from popping to either remarkable bowling or proficient cons, Craig?

    Sold my 5th bowler (prof/comp/comp) for 556k, a 40k profit. Got 2.2 mil in the bank but i think im going to wait till i have enough money to buy the right type of payer to fill my 5th bowling position.

    I want Willetts to bowling in the middle and late overs, as he struggles with the new cherry as he gives away too many runs. So i really need someone who can keep it tight with Jeithoon.

    Looking for a strong or superb fast bowler with either the same or a level below in cons. There are a couple guys that interest me on the market but i think they will end up outside my price range.

    I'm not very good at predicting pops, but I just bought this guy. He's freshly promoted. Does it look like there could be a bowling pop any time soon if I put him on just one net?
