    Just got a team - The SP Hincters. Will be interesting to see how this works.

    I played FTP and BT but don't anymore.

    Stumped's a whole lot better. BT and FTP lose their challenge and become boring over time. Stumped has the potential to stay exciting for a long time.

    Zorax, how is the ranking calculated, is a team's rank simply the sum of rankings of all its players?
    If there is a team which is 3 months "younger" than other one but higher in the rankings - does it mean the team has been more active on the market and bought more valuable players resulting in higher rank?

    I think it's based purely on performances - you get points for winning and lose points for losing. If you beat a higher ranked team, you get more points than you would if you beat and equal/lower rank team, and vice versa for losing points.

    I think there are also different weightings - OD > Cup > T20 > Dev or something like that.

    Just searched for this - couldn't find it. Wanted to challenge you to an off-season friendly.

    Wow, my squad has 31 players now. Not quite sure how that happened

    My DEV season started with 3 losses from 3 (bot!) matches so I might reconsider my strategy in this format. Finding balance between playing high potential youngsters and playing competitive is difficult at this stage of my club's journey.

    Season 7 is about to finish soon. Despite having neglected my team's development a bit the squad is shaping out. Now to get promoted to the higher leagues and invest the prizemoney into ground upgrade and coaching courses. A few high potential youngsters would do too.
    Frustrating - especially for someone not coming from other cricket manager games - but still catchy.

    More managers needed btw, sign up or gtfo!

    I'm just logging in to keep the side alive. Don't feel like properly running the team. Got a few talented youngsters playing and being coached, and 20 mill in the bank. Whenever I do return, I'll be ready to dominate SA Div 1s again

    The manager population of 291 could use a boost .)
    Still impossible to buy good players. Talented youngsters are recruited rarely. Coaching puzzles me to no end. Too many new managers turn bot regularly...still playing though

    You can buy good but flawed players for not much. Anyone even slightly better goes for an absolute fortune. And slightly better than that goes for an obscene amount.

    It's a bit laughable though when 60mph medium pacers are taking 5-fers in international matches though.

    Very well said.

    Resumed with my old side. Rebuilt the squad. Looks a decent XI with some very promising youngsters. Need to get back into Div 1 and regain my titles.
