    CWXI return...kinda

    Afternoon boys,

    I know I haven't done much in regards to simming, and have been kinda unreliable with everything else I've done. But I'm feeling that - what if something like the CWXI was to return?

    Obviously, for now at least, it won't return like it did - but I'm going to try and make something like this. And no, it won't fail like the World Cup Challenge did.

    So....for now I will only sim us v. the world. So only the first 20 signups will be accepted automatically. Activity in this thread will be rewarded by getting a better player, but for now, the abilities will be done by random.

    Bowling Points:
    Bowling Style:
    Bowling Hand:
    Bowling Position: (can be Strike, Main, Support, Occasional, Very Occasional, Never)
    Keeper?

    OK, now fire away!
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    No offence mate, but the Points were meant to equal 100 for batting and bowling combined. Yours equals 170.

    And smalishah's avatar is the most classy one by far Jan certainly echoes the sentiments of CW

    Yeah we don't crap in the first world; most of us would actually have no idea what that was emanating from Ajmal's backside. Why isn't it roses and rainbows like what happens here? PEWS's retort to Ganeshran on Daemon's picture depicting Ajmal's excreta

    We already have some variety in the bowling attack. Left arm + right arm quick bowlers supported by a medium pacer, off spinners and a leg spinner(?)
