    Looking ahead to Season XIV

    I don't think I did a retrospective thread at the end of the last season, so this will serve that purpose, to an extent.
    1. What do you think was done well/poorly last season?
    2. What would you like to see done differently in the upcoming season?
    3. Recently there has been talk of reviving the Pace Academy and adding a Spin Academy. What is the general reaction to this possibility?
    4. What would you like to see involved in these academies?

I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    I'm just amazed that you can find the time to do what you already do, to be honest. Incredible effort. Anything extra is just a cherry on top.

    It'd be perfect if we just had Grade back.

    Granted, I wasn't around when it was active, but it sounds a vital concept.

    What do you think was done well/poorly last season? Dev League and CWXI was run well, the little changes all helped improve things but Grade was sorely missed for mine.
    What would you like to see done differently in the upcoming season? Grade mainly, everything else (y)
    Recently there has been talk of reviving the Pace Academy and adding a Spin Academy. What is the general reaction to this possibility? Before my time i think, but anything that improves development of players is a winner.

    Allows players who aren't playing for their Dev teams or a CWXI team to play some cricket and regain form or put their hands up for selection if a regular loses form.

    Would like to see Grade back, with someone competent in charge, not that David character.

    Would like to see the pace academy back too, wouldn't mind being a part of that tbh.

    I like the idea of the pace/spin academy's especially as bat has been dominating the ball of recent note. Obviously, echoing the Grade Cricket sentiments.

    I'd like to see the Masters scrapped and another club brought in personally.

        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    Loving the idea of Pace/Spin academies, and would dearly love to see Grade Cricket back on its feet. Echo what Smith said re: Masters, whilst the the 6th team is good, the sooner we can have a 6th CW team, the better imo.

    Yeah agree with both of the above, we should have enough for a 6th team I reckon.

    Interesting idea. Its another way to guarantee game time for more players. I'd certainly prefer to see another 'player' team than the Masters XI.
