    When describing your bowlers they all seemed to have 1 main style and another one which you might change to them later on, surely it would be best to find the style of bowling they are best at and stick to it, so they don't become a jack of all trades master of none?

    That's all up to personal opinion, IMO.

    Not really, seen as if you bowl 10 overs in the nets, and you split it 5 and 5 between spin and seam - then you'll only improve slightly in both. Whereas if you'll bowl 10 overs of seam you'll improve more and that and get into a rhythm and groove.

    And name one cricketer (proffesional) who is in the side for his bowling (that rules out symonds and tendulkar) who can bowl two styles?

    i captained my school team, we will never know the quality, the style, the amount of patience, or the amount of stress in situations that makes up different batsmen.
    this is the bread and butter or your batting order.

    1 and 2 need to be safe in their batting, nothing special, just safe, they attack classicaly, u sed u wanted ur mate kyle who slashes at t ball hard, to open, but agression can make mistakes, a mistake at the top can send shockwaves in the entire team. so instead of slogger, u need someone who drives it away.

    number 3 needs to be adaptive, if theirs an early wicket, then he has to act as a 3rd opener to stable the ship and keep things safe, so you want a slightly more agressive than the openers.

    number 4 is your big hitter in one day cricket, he can slog it AND play safe. thats when u see quality in a batsman.

    number 5 should be a number 4, accept he is slightly less agressive. he will support the number 4 with the quick singles.

    number 6 is a number 5 with less skill

    number 7 can slash the hell out of the ball on a good day, but isnt much help wen the pitch and conditions are against him.

    number 8 9 10 are made up of 3 kinds of batsmen, nudgers, blockers, and slashers. nudgers get the ball in odd areas of the field, no one knows how....
    blockers just blokc the good balls and leave the wide ones
    the slashers slog anything that comes to them, usualy over midwicket or mid on, because they have alot of bottom hand in their batting.



    ther it is, u just aply the names to that and i wish u good luck.

    It changed a lot, we went with new players and a different order. I just got home from playing, when you wrote that we were half an hour into the game.

    Pretty much disagree with all of this. Especially 3/4/5.

    Apologies for digging up an old post.
