    Have your players wages been updated yet guys?

    EDIT:

    Yeah they have:
    253,288 -> 296,244

    Interesting that Jeithoon only 146k and went up only 24k. Might flood his secondaries when I have nets free.

    Yeah mine didn't go up much at all, maybe 30k. Shaka only went up 20k which is 20k less than I expected. I'll still struggle with revenue now that I'm in Div 8 FC. Will have to start shooting up the Div's. At least I have 6m+, hopefully I can pul ome good YP and not have to spend it, otherwise I'll go for a 17yo bat and bowl. Maybe even an all-rounder. Was a poor move selling Dickinson and buying Warner, but oh well.

    Listed a couple of my players to try to get that guy. Would've bid a lot more than what he sold for, but didn't get bids in time.

    Mis-calculated what it would be, 440k is the final number. Will be interesting to see if I can stay afloat, need a long run of home games in the cup.

    Ground capacity is now upto 52k but that still isn't enough to pay that wage bill. Hopefully I can get the odd person into the NT sqauds to save some cash.

    I never paid my interest to experience in BT, as I have never had any players with experience. But I was just looking at my 6th bowler and No 8 batsmen and I was just wondering which players you though were better.
