    I've managed to land Dalmeny CC (nooga, who doesn't post here anymore) in my OD league, first time I've ever had a CW'r.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Hey trev

    What about this guy as your all rounder:
    Graeme Blundell (477782)
    Code:
    Graeme is a RH Batsman and RM Bowler. He is a destructive player with competent leadership skills and exceptional experience.
    He currently has superb batting form, superb bowling form and sublime fitness.
    
    Plays For: Nothingness 
    Nationality: England 
    Age: 30 Years Old 
    Battrick Rating: 420,170 
    Wages: 153,490 p/w 
    Stamina: superb Wicket Keeping: respectable 
    Batting: quality Concentration: elite 
    Bowling: quality Consistency: elite 
    Fielding: mediocre
    Comparing him to Murali and Thamba bloke Warna, he basically masterful/masterful all rounder. Age is an issue but with his stamina he could play to 36. His game time will drop when his 33 as fitness starts to drop but it might not effect performances until his 35. Though I'm still testing age and stuff. But pretty sure he is masterful/masterful all rounder.
    The man, the mountain, the Mathews. The greatest all rounder since Keith Miller. (Y)

    Interesting!?!

    I had seen him, and was considering him if the price didn't go up too steeply, although I'm not sure of the equation between the effects of secondaries and primaries. For example, I was told once, when learning BT, that Conc had roughly the same effect of a third of batting (albeit with more of an emphasis on staying in rather than scoring runs). But my WK, Noon, is Rem/Elite+1 Bat, which under that formula, should translate to Wond/Mir, or Exc/Sens, or even to stretch a point, Sens/Rem.

    So I'm really interested to find out how you reckon this guy compares to a Mast/Mast? Maybe I've got it wrong all these years? That's perfectly possible, as Noon consistently out-performed Akhtar last season, for the majority of which he was Sens/Rem.

    Cheers Chaminda. Don't suppose you fancy selling your trainee, (name escapes me ATM), or even your Exc/Exc guy? As I say, I can go up to 9/10M

    Later, trev

    Nah, no way quality/elite is equivalent to masterful/masterful. Not even close.

    If you look at his wages compared to an exq/exq all rounder (Warna) who has $119,771 per week. Then you compare it to mast/elite (bat), mast/phon (bowl) NT trainee who has wages of $170k per week. The NT trainee about to pop to mir batting and bowling. Warna about to pop to masterful batting and bowling. Someone with wages $153,490 per week would be basically mast/mast for mine. Fielding and keeping would make a difference to wages, but both the two guys I compared him to have higher fielding and keeping. Graeme Blundell has very high levels of elite looking at his wages.

    I could be wrong, but thats how I worked it out.

    Not really, there are diminishing returns on skill levels that are not reflected by wage increases. You could add another twenty levels of secondaries to that player and he'd hardly be any better at all but his wages would increase tenfold or more. It's not as simple as x levels of secondary = one level of primary. A secondary skill, however high, is always going to be inhibited by a low primary.

    I think it's overnight at the moment.

    I had a good start to my First Class career.

    I bowled them out for 342, with trainees Waterworth taking 5/39 and Britz 4/112!

    Then I made inroads into chasing, making my way to 2/86 my the end of the days play, openers making 42 and 32 respectively, but then unfortunately they both got out near the end of the days play.

    Jamee currently 25-4 against me. Warnock is still in though. Hopefully we can get him out, but if we can't we'll keep plugging away at the comparative tripe at the other end.

    Warnock playing silly cricket here. Taking singles off the first ball of the last two overs, leaving Todd to face the music.

    Day one is over for my first class match! My first game in charge too!!

    Current scores

    Brintons CC 1st Inning 335-10 (94overs)

    Boom Boom 1st Inning 82-2 (16overs)

    They do have the better run rate, but I'm hoping I get second innings and win then!
