    Isn't the first XI a bowler short?

    Harvey, Waugh and Chappell to bowl 20 overs between them. I'll see how it goes..


    edit - and Darren Lehamann had solid ODI returns with the ball. Basically I'm hoping the part timers can do their bit to allow for deeper batting

    Ok cool, Australia A has been entered, and if Randy wants to put together a composite squad he may do so. The only problem is Odoyo isn't actually in the game & Morgan has been selected by Howe for England, so those picks are ineligible.

    Tamim Iqbal
    Will Porterfield
    Andy Flower
    Tom Cooper
    Shakib Al Hasan
    Ryan Ten Doeschete
    Kevin O'Brien
    Heath Streak
    Mashrafe Mortaza
    Abdur Razzak

    Need to add four more players to this squad. Along with Grant Flower, may I suggest some players the calibre of Bashar, Rafique, Houghton, A Campbell, N Johnson, P Strang, Brandes, Goodwin, Blignaut, Taylor & Taibu, who are all available.

    Let me also remind Howe that he needs to pick up another player for his England squad.

    Since we have now expanded to 10 teams, I think we'll just roll with one big group & a format that sort of resembles the aborted format for the 2015 CWC in real life. Personally, I like the league structure.

    Confirmed entrants:

    Morgieb RSA
    Shri WI
    Harsh AUS
    MM PAK & AUA (Australia A)
    Randy SL & CXI (Combined XI)
    weldone IND
    TBP NZ
    Howe ENG

    I will return shortly with a full list of tournament rules, including scoring system, & fixtures.

    Tournament Rules.

    Format:

    Ten teams, seeded into a singular group, will play each other once in the round robin stage of the tournament. At the conclusion of the group stage, the top five ranked teams will progress to the finals. In the event of two or more teams being tied on points at the end of the final round, the team with the better net run rate (NNR) will attain the higher position. If the teams cannot be separated this way, a playoff match will take place.

    Points System:

    Win - 2 points
    Tie - 1 point
    Loss - 0 points

    Finals:

    The top 5 will progress to the finals series.



    All tied finals will be replayed, with both parties given the opportunity to change their lineups prior to the rematch.

    Form:

    Because I am simming each game individually, form will be non-existent. Any form, or lack of form, a player gains will be reset before the next match.

    Injuries:

    Any player that suffers an injury will be unavailable for the the next game. After one match, the injured player will once again be available.

    Trial matches:

    By request only. If you wish for your team to have a hit out before the start of round 1, I will organise one for you against a List A team from ICC '13. The main benefit of the trial match is to see how the AI will handle your playing XI. Be warned, the AI can do crazy random things in ICC '13, which I cannot control.

    Tournament fixture (host nation displayed on left):

    Round 1

    Sri Lanka v Australia
    Pakistan v Australia A
    New Zealand v England
    CXI v India
    West Indies v South Africa

    Good stuff with the format.

    But shouldn't the winner of B get to play the winner of A. Right now the winner's being "penalized" by having to play against the Ranked 1 team.

    Why isn't form a thing? Isn't it a tournament? Is it something that is not possible or is it something you actively reset? Oh and give me a trial too. Here's the XI:

    Gordon Greenidge
    Desmond Haynes
    Viv Richards [6]
    Brian Lara
    Clive Lloyd* [7]
    Chris Gayle [5]
    Ridley Jacobs [+]
    Malcolm Marshall [4]
    Andy Roberts [3]
    Joel Garner [2]
    Michael Holding [1]

    5/6/7 bowlers will bowl three overs each and the best bowler out of those 3 will bowl one extra over, making it ten overs from the part timers. Bowlers 1-4 will bowl 5 overs each for the first 20 overs before the part timers come on. Overs 20-30 will be part timers before the quickies come back for another 20 overs.

    I think the simming feature just does what it wants with the bowlers. Jimmy isn't manually playing these games
