    International Cricket Captain: Forumer's Challenge

    Earlier today I came across an old thread that had esteemed member Jamee999 simulate a game of International Cricket Captain with forumers involved. I'd like to do the same.

    I'm going to play through the 2005 version with a team of forumers, playing both Test and ODI series up until the 2007 World Cup. The aim will be to take a middling international side, and not only make them the no.1 side in the Test rankings but also to bring home the World Cup for CricketWeb.

    I'm looking for a squad, hopefully of around 15-18 members, so as there's competition for places and few changes for the Test and ODI teams.

    If you want to sign up, please do so stating your name, batting and bowling style and a total of 100 skill points, split between batting and bowling. Example:

    Name: Jake Howe
    Batting style: Right hand bat, lower order
    Bowling style: Right-arm fast-medium
    Batting: 10
    Bowling: 90

    It would be helpful to sign up as the right players to fill in the squad, such as if we've an abundance of seam bowlers, sign up as a batsman or spinning allrounder, and so on.

    I'm hoping to kick this off when I get back from camping next week.

    Who's up for the challenge?
