    I think I pretty much ignored the sim aspect of it when picking a team - just tried to pick a team that in equal parts was 'best-available' combined with 'players I like'.

    But your points on the limits of sims is well made. It would be great if they could build in a function to capture team's fielding prowess, but then, we'd probably need a usuable statistical ranking of such things, which doesn't really exist.

    ITC does take into account fielding. Last time I picked one these side we used that and I had Walcott as my keeper. He was useless so I had to put Taibu in as the keeper. That was probably the main reason why I went for Healy over a better batsmen that keeps. I still have nightmares over his drops from Murali.

    Regardless of all that there were some limitations to my side and I always felt even using other sims we were short in batting and bowling. But that had a lot to do with missing early picks and my balance picks (a spinner and keeper).

    Do you have a link (or even the full name for ITC) that I could download it from? I like VC4, but keen to try alternatives...
