    Haha, I opened the batting in the first OD game Smith sims, then bat 11 in the FC. Awesome.

    I would have thought that making sure all players got an opportunity to prove themselves in both forms of the game should be the first priority when it comes to dealing with the grade schedule. Even if that means only playing 1 grade format, at least they get the opportunity play both formats, as opposed to spending half the season playing just the one (kind of like I'm currently doing).

    In regards to this, I just batted every CW player as high as I could in the OD unless they're a certain specialist in a position (ie. if someone like Butler played I'd probably have him at 4). May as well give everyone a crack, especially the bowlers.
    The one, the only CW Black
    Code:
    47.3 W Coppinger to Heads 
        Smacked the ball straight into the groin of Iwuajoku who has fallen over, 
        miraculously with the ball still caught in his scrotal area! Out!

    That's cool, but can Hutchinson and Pimpkins not open in any form for the remaining rounds? (ditto any other Colts batsman who isn't an opener, which I think is just Rai and Fitzsimmons)

    Would appreciate it

    We'll see. It's not like Grade counts anyway.

    Any Colts who wish to open can if they specifically request to, just prefer those who signed up as middle order players play there, as that's where they're likely to play for Colts. Although OD doesn't matter as much as FC in regards to this. (Y)

    Noted. Might as well give it a crack for a laugh.

    Great bowling from the Foxes save us. Can't believe we won that tbh.

    EDIT: Why was I bowling in that game? (If that is me?)

    Yeah, its really frustrating. Im playing OD in Dev and OD in Grade.

    For some reason I can barely get a 3D game in grade.

    What I really want is OD in Dev (as Im not a regular in FC) and then try and push for a place in FC by playing 3D in grade. Unfortunately the balance is all off.

    No one else, really. You have dud bowling stats but the computer gens are worse.

    Great win for the team, and even happier with my own performance.
