    It's not fair to change a player type without consent. That's why we inform them of shortages and give them the option to convert. We don't convert (intentionally) without giving them a choice.

    Hmm, after reading that, if the offers still there i wouldnt mind changing to batsman/part time spinner (if being a spinner all rounder really is as dire as your all making out). No 5/6 bat if possible, just dont turn me as bad as Dalrymple

    Some people are successful with it, like Tarick and a few others. And then some of them are a bag of ****, like I was

    The best I can do is turn you into a specialist batsman with very occasional spin.

    1. Return from retirement with a hit to your batting stats (retirement being different from inactivity).

    2. Re-incarnation. Pick your player type, name and stats. Try to be fair and honest. And Simon Fitzsimmons jr. will suffice if you like. Somewhat unoriginal though...

    What sort of hit to the batting stats are we talking?

    Will have to talk it over with Hakon, but it'd be at least 5 points.
