    RH Batsman, RM Bowler. He is an attacking player with competent leadership skills and abysmal experience.
    He currently has respectable batting form, respectable bowling form and fresh fitness.
    Stamina: feeble Wicket Keeping: worthless
    Batting: worthless Concentration: feeble
    Bowling: mediocre Consistency: competent
    Fielding: feeble

    I had a guy who was Competent in bowling, now I get this dude. I've got him in the nets, but is he worth it? Only young.
    Train him. Decent


    When starting off in Battrick, try and get your team of Medicore/comp players with the same consitency/concentration of Med/comp, also make sure they have decent stamina. Feeble + probs ( try and get higher. These type of players should be easy to buy as they don't go for much on the transfer market, 1000$ - 10000$ at most. So go buy some players, dosen't matter what age with stats I said before. Feeble + stam, Medicore/comp batting/bowling, and mediocre + in concentration/consetiency. Depends if your buying a bowler or batsmen. Batsmen = concentration. Bowler = Concstiency

    Now for your traning, have 2 - 3 players like Kyle Waters above. 17 year olds with med/comp stats. And train them. 2 bowl, 1 stam, 1 field would be good for Kyle waters.

    Look to by some sports physcoligists ( can't spell it ) later on to help train secondary stats.

    Hope that helped..

    YES! It's in the rules somewhere. Basically, when you give a player a bowling/batting/fielding/WK net, a sports psychologist attends the session, and that's what gives you the secondary (conc/cons) training. You basically need 1 sports psych for EVERY primary net, so that you get as much secondary training as possible.

    I've went for about 15 players in the past day, and I haven't got 1. The better players I'm going for now are bloody hard to get, especially with a different school and sleep routine to lots of other users, especially from different countries and who don't go to school or have a job, or who have way more free time than me.
    Sorry to hear that. It will get easier in the next few weeks -- there's always a feeding frenzy at the start of the season.

    Seriously, look at your youngsters and work it out. If you've got some Competent/Mediocre 17yos, great. If not, you WILL need to buy some cheap trainees.

    I have 4 nets for bowling, and have a different bowler in each one?

    Should I be doubling up on some? Wont that make one bowler good but the one who I'm not training bad?

    There's nothing wrong with training up lots of players with one net. HOWEVER, it's not usually the best way to get rounded players. Secondaries are important!

    Typically, I'd use a minimum of 1 x bowling and 1 x fielding on a young bowler, possibly 1 x stamina too. If he's a decent 17/18yo prospect, I might up it to 2 x bowling.

    Similar for a batsman. For an all-rounder, I'd be using 1 x batting, 1 x bowling and 1 x fielding.

    Generally, teams will only have 3 to 5 trainees on the go at once -- the rest of the team would be older players, e.g. 23+, who aren't being trained.

    The majority of my team is trainees, young players (17/18/19) who are getting 1 net on batting or bowling, with a stamina and a fielding in there too. Should I get rid of a couple of trainees and get a couple of older, pre trained guys, or stick to my guns, but only be giving them one net each?

    Like I said before, by a couple of older players with med/comp stats, then buy a couple of 17 year olds with the stats i said before. 2 -3 trannies would be good. I wouldn't one net everyone at the moment, heres why should have atleast 2 primary nets on someone, heres a site to help you with traning speeds, battrick ect..

    Battrick Helpfile It helps

    Would it be better for me to train

    A few young bowlers in bowling nets, or a couple of allrounders with just as good bowling and better batting?

    I put the allrounders on batting, because I am clearing my crappy trainees, but what should I do about them bowling?

    Most players on battrick only have bowling all rounders, I'd defientley train atleast 1 speiclist bowler and 1 specialist bat atm.

    If that's the same bunch you posted earlier, you should just get rid of half of them -- they're rubbish.

    A successful training regime will give you well-rounded players in about 2 seasons' time. If you're lucky, one net will suffice...but most players would need two or more.

    Wouldn't train anyone over 17 and with less then two nets personally, if I was starting up again. Your better off having 2-3 really good players then 4-5 average players.

    Ok. Will when I get home.

    With my other decent trainee's who I'm not training, should I sell them and buy some good players who have been trained, or keep them for future and staying in my team?

    I put this guy on the market the other day and no one bid on him so I'm putting him up again, you could probably grab him for just $1000 or so.
    Isn't the greatest prospect but if you're looking to keep it cheap he may be the way to go until you find someone better. And if you train him and he pops the more the likelihood you'd be able to sell him on for a profit, perhaps.
