    I've got an error to report.

    For some reason, I am logged in as a guy called "Xuzuno".

    I then clicked on "Your Details" and got the following message:

    Warning: main(notloggedin.php) [function.main]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory in /home/jamesn/public_html/cwgames/modifyyourdetails.php on line 8

    Must have been a crossed session due to that error - I've fixed it up

    Thanks for reporting.

    No problem, James.

    A couple of other quick comments:

    It would be good to be told what the bowling action of the bowler is at the start of an over. My opponents just opened the bowling with a spinner and I played about 5 minutes early as I was expecting a quick.

    Also, milestones aren't highlighted. Daniel Flynn just scored a century for me, but there was no fanfare.

    Thanks for the comments, appreciate it

    1) That's odd, there certainly shouldn't be spinners opening the bowling. Who were you playing against?

    2) Well done! Due to the cost of animations, we couldn't afford to get as many done as what we wanted. That was one of the animations we felt wasn't as necessary as some of the others. We'd definitely consider getting this animation added in a future version.

    1) I was playing Malaysia in a 20 over game. The first bowler was a quick, the other opener (i.e. the 2nd over) was delivered by a spinner.

    2) I thought that might be the case. As I said, it'd be a nice addition to have, though I can understand that its not strictly necessary.

    Thanks, I'll investigate. Could well be a data-entry mistake. Taking it a bit easy in playing Malaysia aren't you

    Yeah I agree with you in that it would be a nice addition.

    Another small thing - wides are being counted as a delivery faced by the batsman.

    i.e. at the end of the first over (NZ vs. WI), the opening West Indian bowler sent down a wide. On the end of over scorecard, total balls faced by the batsmen added up to 7.

    Hit my first 6 today after hitting about 30 balls down fielder's throats (including having 6 out without scoring in one game before I gave up). Gave me a warm, fuzzy feeling inside
