    Um Adam, not sure if you'll be able to help or not, but I've just gone to my orders page, to set all the batsmen to V.Def and change the second innings declaration target to 1000, (As I'm not around tomorrow). Anyway, *NOW* it's telling me that I can't select my WK as a bowler, despite the fact that A, seemingly it was perfectly happy to let me do so yesterday, B, he's already bowled five overs in the match, and C, it doesn't give me any way in which to change the WK, as all the combo boxes are locked whilst the game's on-going!

    Do I just do nothing, and see what happens?

    Confused....Trev

    Yeah, I don't know really. The same wicketkeeper bowling issue came up in testing as well, but Allan seemed to have fixed it at the time. Not really sure you can do anything, I think it's been raised as a bug already so unless it's fixed imminently you'll just have to either change your orders, and accept the fact that he won't be able to bowl, or not change your orders and see what happens.

    Hmm, Cheers Ad. I'll just have to not set any orders, and hope that I don't reach whatever my 2nd innings declaration target is by the end of tomorrow. Otherwise I could end up setting them around a hundred to win in a day, which would be rather embarrassing!

    Sandy Snowmen 97-0 (20)

    Going pretty well actually, it could be really close unless their 75,000 BTR opener keeps going as he is (69 from 70).

    I suppose FC matches will become better once the leagues even out in the future. Before then we could see some very, very one-sided matches.

    Currently having a very close match against a better team. I'm guessing that some of his better players might have some poor fitness. Got a lead of 50 runs with 10 2nd innings wickets remaining. Probably need at least 300 to win - don't think I'll bowl him out for 150 again on a flat pitch.

    270-2 (40 overs)
    O'Halloran 154*, Bittner 46, Michael 46, Lloyd 14*

    Gun. O'Halloran brought up his century from just 74 balls and his 150 from 113 balls. So pleased.

    Set them 350 to win, should bowl them out comfortably short of that.

    In other news, damn you f00lins, buying the player I wanted. (though tbf he ended up about 500k out of my price range)

    Yeah he was a bit expensive, but his secondaries should mean he'll perform at least as well as Harewood and Richardson combined. They sold for 13m between them, so 8.5m isn't all that much for Ellis. Wage is a bit extravagant but I'll get over it.

    **** me, you'd think with a Superb/Med captain he'd take the bowlers off before the maximum of 6 overs I set.
