    Oh, we need to finalise captain, bowling tactics etc. We have a game tonight, and we need to do better than the real life ****s. Shouldn't be difficult.

    1. Mike 5181 (RHB)+
    2. StrawMan (LHB Very aggressive)
    3. Hurricane (right hand bat)
    4. NZT (right hand bat)
    5. Athlai (RHB + Medium pace)
    6. Raghav (RHB)
    7. Somerset (Allrounder Right arm fast medium)
    8. James (Right arm Fast)
    9. Voltman (right arm leg spin)
    10. Heath (right arm fast)
    11. Flem274* (leg break)

    Bowling order: Heath, James, Somerset, Me/Volty, Athlai

    Tactics: Heath and James to open and close the bowling with a 5-5 split in their spells. Somerset to get a few overs through with Athlai (2-5 overs each) before bringing on the spinners to bowl straight through.

    Agreeable?

    Agree with it all, though I should clearly open the bowling and batting.

    We have a better chance than the real black caps...
    I got great enjoyment shouting "WHY THE **** ISN'T THIS GAME BEING PLAYED AT THE BASIN?!>!?!?" to reasonably significant cheers from the sparse crowd
    one day NZ will bring chappell to his knees in a puddle of his own tears and you'll see Phlegm on his belly greedily tasting every delicious tear before watching the hope fade from that old ****s eyes.
    Overrated XI Warner, Rutherford, Steve Smith, Rahane, Bairstow, Alecz Day, Donovan Grobelaar, Luke Ronchi, Faulkner, Dan Christian, Permaul

    Keep coming to this thread expecting to see that I scored a scintillating 17(12) in a NZ victory while I was asleep. And am disappointed. Must be a highly localised rain cloud camped over PEWS' house.

    Hope Somerset, Voltman and James are all good with the bat - at 7,8 & 9 in a NZ team we're all looking at you for the runs. Go win me my pay packet

    I think if this ever happens, we will be a bowling side. The simulation is based on your post count and most of our heavy hitters (with the exception of Athlai) are in the bowling.

    Reckon that means we should bat first and do our major skill second when the pressure is on. Not that the simulation game will factor that in.
