    When I get the database I sim with the lineups I have. There's no special plan for these, they'll just come out as-is.

    Which I believe they've done now (they better have anyway *shakes fist*).

    Since as I have no intention of sleeping or leaving the house tonight, the plan is:

    1. Watch Game of Thrones
    2. Sim cric
    3. Make database

    Spark should have the thing by tomorrow morning his/our time.

    Awesome.

    Would quite like to play someone full strength, or close to, personally.

    Four bowlers should be okay generally with Spark/Marcuss simming, as long as they all perform. If I was simming you'd be ****ed though.

    I'm guessing you turn turn 5th & 6th bowlers faster and more often?
