    International Cricket Captain: Grassroots on the Test Stage

    Simple challenge, playable on any version. Select any domestic side you like and see if you can lead them to international glory.

    I will be using the 2010/2011 Central Districts side.

    Proudly supporting Central Districts

    Would be interesting to see any 1990's Australian domestic side simulated in Test cricket. Obviously ICC wasn't around at that stage, but still.

    How dare you come up with such a gun idea when I have work to do.

    Firebirds would dominate.
    Direbirds FTW!

    Hmm, I'm already going to do a County season so I might just be England but only pick players with < 10-15 caps or something.

    Quick note on regens and reserves; Uncontracted or regens contracted to your domestic side only. If you're desperate for balance/players, pick a guy who has played for your side in the past i.e. George Worker is my fourth opening option even though he now plays for Canterbury.


    If you can't make a squad fairly, pick rubbish players from other provinces.

    Wasn't that because Williamson, Vettori and Southee did all the work though?

    I want to see someone use the Canterbury side from the early to mid 2000s. That will carve.

    A Canterbury side you could use in ICC2005:

    + Papps
    Astle
    * Stead
    Fulton
    McMillan
    Cairns
    Harris
    Bond
    Shaw
    Cunis
    Wiseman

    Phwoar. It's pretty tempting - especially if you overlook Fleming's defection to Wellington and chuck him in there as well. But I can't bring myself to go against my Aucks. Think this is the best I can do...

    * Horne
    McIntosh
    Vincent
    Nicol/Jones
    Styris
    Barnes
    + Hopkins/Young
    Mills
    Adams
    Tuffey
    Martin

    Fair bowling attack, IMO.

    Well, that was an unnervingly close series against Zimbabwe - 1-1 in the Tests, and 2-1 to Auckland in the ODIs. Won the deciding ODI by 2 runs. South Africa next.

    Playing this on my iPhone (2010) using Mumbai.

    1) Ajinkya Rahane
    2) Wasim Jaffer
    3) Sachin Tendulkar (C)
    4) Rohit Sharma
    5) Abhishek Nayar
    6) Dhawal Kulkarni
    7) Marathe (+)
    8) Ramesh Powar
    9) Iqbal Abdulla
    10) Zaheer Khan
    11) Avishkar Salvi

    Ajit Agarkar (Injured 4 weeks)
    Aditya Tare
    Paul Valthaty
    R Raje

    Any obvious ones I've missed out?

    Quality batting ends at 4, 5-9 can hold a bat though. Pace bowling is dire apart from Zak, decent spinners in Powar and Abdulla. Will be a miracle if I beat any test nation.

    Facing Australia, and this won't be pretty. Started the game to find Ingram out injured for the entire series, Wheeler, Dougeh and Mason in terrible form.

    The team is;

    Ben Smith
    Jamie How
    Mathew Sinclair
    Ross Taylor
    Tim Weston
    Brad Patton
    Kruger van Wyk
    Jeremy Kuru
    Michael Mason
    Adam Milne
    Mitchell McClenaghan

    I'm bowling first, and Australia are 93/0 at lunch. Mason and Milne have bowled very tight but with no penetration. Kuru and McClenaghan got slaughtered.

    Sinclair is officially my third seamer for the match. Eight overs, two maidens for ten runs. He even made Katich play and miss!

    Day 1 is done, and I'm off to bed. Australia are 299/3.

    Mark Cosgrove 129
    Simon Katich 98

    Milne, McClenaghan and Sinclair have one wicket each.

    iirc Nayar tends to go pretty well in ICC games
