    Any way of simulating an entire match?

    Since there are so many best of teams going around, can we actually have two compete against each other? We could start with deciding the weather, pitch condition, and size of outfield as each day commences. Then based on those three factors, we can split innings into increments of 10, 20, 30, whatever is the most convenient. Finally, we can do polls on the likeliest results at the end of each of these increments. That's a very rough gist of what I had in mind. I'm not aware if a sim like this is already running somewhere on this site, and I suppose this can be a pretty time-consuming exercise, but worth a shot? Suggestions?

    EDIT: I might be thinking out my ass though..too many complications - field placements, change in bowling, etc.

    Think that's what the ATG thread being run by NUFAN is heading towards.

    Would love to pit the AT teams of England, Australia, South Africa and West Indies againts each other to see what the eventual outcome would be, would bet for a West Indies vs Australia final, though would have no idea who would win. Bradman and better bowling variety vs that amazing middle order and unmatched pace attack. (would be playing Walcott as keeper btw).

    Some one should be able to do this.
    Aus. XI
    Simpson^ | Hayden | Bradman | Chappell^ | Ponting | Border* | Gilchrist+ | Davidson3 | Warne4^ | Lillee1 | McGrath2


    W.I. XI
    Greenidge | Hunte | Richards^ | Headley* | Lara^ | Sobers5^ | Walcott+ | Marshall1 | Ambrose2 | Holding3 | Garner4

    S.A. XI
    Richards^ | Smith*^ | Amla | Pollock | Kallis5^ | Nourse | Cameron+ | Procter3 | Steyn1 | Tayfield4 | Donald2

    Eng. XI
    Hobbs | Hutton*^ | Hammond^ | Compton | Barrington | Botham5^ | Knott | Trueman1 | Laker4 | Larwood2 | Barnes3

    I believe the sim most frequently used is 'Internet Test Cricket'. Join in with the ATG XI game, NUFAN's doing a great job of running it- we're looking to have 10-16 all time great teams which we'll simulate a tournament with at the end.
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    Simulations are a bit of fun but all they really do is quantify the bias in the programmer's opinions.

    How so? I don't really understand the workings of the sim.

    Well any simulation is played under a version of cricket stipulated to by the creator of the program. For example, Daniel Thomas might think you can get away with rotating four good bowlers all day and write his problem to reflect that view of cricket, while you might think he's wrong and thus consider it an inaccurate simulation for that reason.

    Ah, I see, so there is user input? I was under the impression that you put all the statistics in and press 'play'.

    Yes, but the software that turns that numbers into cricket is based on the creator's interpretation of what does and doesn't work in a cricket match.

    Can I use the 2 in the morning excuse? I'll just let someone else do the simming and ask no questions

    So I guess we will be using PEWS sim for the exercise then. Any bias we should know about PEWS?

    Interesting that the West Indies won both the overall sims. Hard to beat sustained great fast bowling.
