    Might be best to play one and then use Cevno & BI to make up the overs.
    Yeah I like this idea too. Or can't Teja and VCS just change their stats to match that of a number 7 spin bowling - allrounder?

    Not a right arm pie chucker. A left arm FAST bowler. If I ever create a multi, it would be called ZaKhan.
    This was a serious post:

    To make it more realistic our bowling skills should be 75, batting 5 and fielding -50 ala Munaf Patel


    Dude no way, I'm telling you, how many times has India got to witness a lethal fast bowler, let alone a lethal fast bowling pair? If anyone deserves two 100 point fast bowlers, it's India. And I still feel our top order batting is strong, will get the job done, especially if we bowl the opposition out cheaply.

    EDIT: Wait, I just realized you meant 95 - 5 and not 75 - 5, but in that case yes that's a good point.

    nah i meant 75 - 5, the extra 20 points got deducted due to being indian and having no natural pace bowling talent

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

Perhaps we could do it on total posts in the WC subforum - be the equivalent of the players "current form"?
    I can't get figures for the World Cup subforum.

    Re: your potential problem though, it'd be done on postcount rankings rather than actual numbers if I did it that way. So being top poster with 239848234823482834283423 posts would be no different to being top poster with 30,000 posts, in other words.

    Fair enough, makes sense.
    I'm always suspicious of shops that sell bait.
