    Dev League Career Options

    Given the likelihood of imbalanced squads for the upcoming season, the CWBCC has worked with Daniel Towns to develop career options for players to reinvigorate or kickstart their Development League careers, whilst serving their teams more effectively.

    It's hardly a secret that there is a distinct lack of batting talent in the league right now. At least as compared to bowlers. So these options exist primarily to encourage those seeking a more pleasant future with the bat.

    A. Retirement
    Applicable: >=5 years of service

    Players with 5 or more seasons of service to Development League cricket have the option of retiring and returning as a new player. This player may or may not carry the same name as the retired player. If the same name is used, a "jr" would be attached, however.

    This option allows players who have endured long seasons of service but were never able to rise from mediocrity. It is an option for a new start, with a better understanding of the rookie adjustments and signup protocol.

    There are no restrictions on player type, so a bowler may retire and return as a rookie batsman or the like.

    B. Young Career Conversion
    Applicable: <35 games (combined format)

    "Young" players with a combined number of games (OD and FC) of less than 35 would be allowed to switch their career path. Bowlers may convert to batting allrounders and allrounders may convert to specialist batsmen.

    Breakdown:
    1. Bowler to Batsman
    - 15 added to batting and 20 to bowling.

    Code:
    Example:- A bowler at 12/26 would average 30/45 after 3 seasons. Batting (12 + 15 + 3 = 30). Bowling (26 + 20 - [0.33 x 3] = 45).
    2. Allrounder to Batsman
    - For batting simming average under 30, 10 added to batting an 15 added to bowling.
    - For batting of 30-39, 5 to batting and 10 to bowling.
    - For batting of 40+, 2.5 to batting and 5 to bowling.
    - Maximum initial adjustments at 45 batting.

    Code:
    Example:- 
    1. An allrounder at 27/27 would average 40/41 after 3 seasons. Batting (27 + 10 + 3 = 40). Bowling (27 + 15 - [0.33 x 3] = 41).
    2. An allrounder at 35/35 would average 43/44 after 3 seasons. Batting (35 + 10 + 3 = 48). Bowling (35 + 5 + 3 = 43). Bowling (35 + 10 - [0.33 x 3] = 44).
    3. An allrounder at 42/42 would average 47.5/46 after 3 seasons. Batting (42 + 2.5 + 3 = 47.5). Bowling (42 + 5 - [0.33 x 3] = 46).
    C. Experienced Career Conversion
    Applicable: >35 games (combined format)

    Breakdown:
    1. Allrounder to Batsman
    - Bowling ability is relinquished and set to a SR of 100.
    - Batting simming average is boosted by 5 points.
    - The player may then receive full batting experience points (1 point per season served after transition).

    Code:
    Example:- An allrounder at 27 batting and 27 bowling would average 35 batting after 3 seasons (27 + 5 + 3 = 35). His/her bowling skill will remain largely negligible.
    2. Bowler to Batsman (where a bowler is <20 batting average)
    - Bowling ability is relinquished and set to a SR of 100.
    - Batting simming average is boosted by 3 points.
    - The player may then receive full batting experience points (1 point per season served after transition).

    Code:
    Example:- A bowler at 15/26 would average 21 after 3 seasons (15 + 3 + 3 = 21). Bowling skill will remain largely negligible.
    D. Gradual Conversion
    Applicable: Anyone

    Breakdown:
    1. Bowler/Allrounder to Batsman
    - 2 points added to batting.
    - 4 points deducted from bowling skill (ie, added to average).
    - 1 batting experience point per season/0.5 bowling experience deduction.

    Code:
    Example:- An allrounder at 25/29 would average 30/34.5 after 3 seasons. Batting (25 + 2 + 3 = 30). Bowling (29 + 4 + [0.5 x 3] = 34.
    5).

    Tried to make this all as simple as possible.
    All applications should be made as soon as possible. No conversions will be allowed during the season.

    Just one thing, if someone converts from an allrounder/bowler to a batsman, do they pick their own position in the batting line up again or is it randomly assigned?

    You can pick your specialist position.

    Just a thought, Liam, but do we have the List-A stats updated? It would be good for the people to get an idea of exactly what their stats would end up being close to.

    My batting is 'worthless' so there's no point me converting.

    Why can't you convert from a batsman to an all-rounder?

    We have a lot of bowlers, but not very many batsmen at the moment. So changing from batsman to allrounder would give us more bowling, less batting, and that just worsens the already unbalanced squads.

    I'll try to point Manan to this thread. His bowling's crap anyway, might as well become a batsman.

    Will get around to it soonish. Unless someone else wants to do it for me? Between CW (club cricket, news updates etc.), work and university, I'm pretty tied up right now.

    Great ideas.

    Is this a one season thing or something that is possible at the end of each season?

    The color of immortality, nature and envy - you are truly a unique person. While clearly the color of nature, you also symbolize rebirth, fertility and hope in the world. On the other side of the spectrum, a natural aptitude to money with green coming to signify money and possibly even *********!

    In that case, I will cast off the bowling aspect of my game and become a specialist bat. I want to so a Mark Richardson (except not batting as slowly) and I've always fancied myself an opener even though I'm crap, so yeah, that'd be cool, cheers.
