    I've gone through ICC a few times just with players born in NSW. It's not hard though.

    Franklin was just destroying the Aussie attack and they ****ing injured him!!1!!1ioheiohdikhfdfge

    Boam debut Test 50 though.

    And bowled them out for a first innings lead - very nice. Basically every body got 2 wickets. And then they rolled me for 120 and won by 8 wickets. FML

    Chanderpaul just scored 244 no against me.... O'Brien got a 5fer though so the rest of Windies didn't do that much damage.

    Chanderpaul followed up his 200 with a run a ball 150 and gave us a day and a half to bat out. Murdoch managed to make it pretty easy on a flat deck with double hundreds.

    A few things after my first year of playing.

    Murdoch has broken the NZ record for most runs in a single year of Test cricket for a Kiwi, scoring 1064 @ 81.85 in his debut season. ATG in the making. Also in all likelihood this is the worst bowling ever seen by a NZ team.

    Batting reads okay:

    Murdoch 1064 @ 81.85 – 4 100s 4 50s
    Ryder 709 @ 47.27 – 1 100 6 50s
    Elliott 590 @ 45.38 –*1 100 3 50s
    Boam 452 @ 34.77 – 3 50s
    Franklin 399 @ 44.33 – 1 100 2 50s
    Papps 323 @ 26.92 – 2 50s
    Austin-Smellie 274 @ 39.14 – 1 100
    Gillespie 144 @ 13.09
    Woodcock 101 @ 16.83
    Rhodes 98 @ 24.50*–*1 50
    Patel 96 @ 12
    Friday 84 @ 42
    O'Brien 83 @ 20.75
    McKay 66 @ 8.25
    Pollard 63 @ 21
    Brodie 11 @ 5.50

    (I also used Nevin but it seems he retired before I could get teh statz)


    Bowling: (N)

    O'Brien 18 @ 52.17*–*1 5fer
    McKay 16 @ 50.06
    Patel 16 @ 58.12
    Gillespie 14 @ 63.29
    Franklin 8 @ 67.75
    Woodcock 5 @ 75.80
    Friday 4 @ 55.75
    Boam 2 @ 147.50
    Ryder 1 @ 96
    Elliott 1 @ 132

    Anurag Verma
    Joseph Yovich
    Bradley Scott
    Graeme Aldridge
    Tim Southee
    Trent Bould

    Starting lineup is most likely going to be:

    BJ Watling
    Brad Wilson
    Kane Williamson
    Daniel Flynn

    WTF? ND is either fully overpowered or you're playing on easy.
