    Super International Cricket - Name Your XI

    That's right folks. The game - the institution.



    The amount of hours i've spent on this game is ridiculous, and if i didn't love it so much, I'd say it was embarrassing.


    But here we go.

    The Australian XI:

    R. Connor* - Captain of the team, quick as a flash and strong all around the wicket.
    G. Ireland - The left handed Ireland truly is the complete package. Quick around the wickets, hard hitter and handy left arm seaming option.
    J. Haliday - This man oozes class, the left hander has a hunger for quick runs.
    C. Dixon - Along with his twin brother, Borg, he's a nuggety cricketer and takes runs anyway he can get them.
    D. Borg - Affectionately dubbed the 'Rogue Twin' by his team mates after changing his last name, Borg is a fan favourite, winning hearts and test matches all over the globe.
    B. Aitken - Cult hero to the masses, big hitter and part-time boiler maker, Aitken fought his way back into the team with a stunning domestic season.
    C. Webb - A genuine all-rounder who offers plenty with the bat and ball. His tour of Pakistan was over shadowed with his long-running feud with Pakistani captain G. Asif.
    T. Du+ - A war-horse who can bat well with the tail or top order. Technically sound keeper.
    S. Scott - Raw, fiery fast bowler whose tour of South Africa yielded plenty of wickets.
    W. Simmons - The ultimate wrist spinner. Had the Indians in a spin on the last tour, and who could forget that Ashes series?
    M. Trinh - The line and length bowler of the team and the ultimate professional. His experience is only second to his wicket taking ability.

    12th Man: J. Visk - Project player. Young fast bowler who is apart of the 'big picture' for Australian cricket.

    Haliday... what a player. Scored many a run with his sheer left handed brilliance. His hooks were devastating.

    I remember some of the names were based on the developers.

    Who doesn't remember B. Aitken? Slowpoke across the turf, but Boonesque in his strokeplay.
    'Copperfield,' said Mr. Micawber, 'farewell! Every happiness and prosperity! If, in the progress of revolving years, I could persuade myself that my blighted destiny had been a warning to you, I should feel that I had not occupied another man's place in existence altogether in vain.

    A. Milgrom - couldn't run between the wickets so he just hit boundaries all day. That's what the crowds come to see.

    Yes. Best thing weetbix ever did, having that game come with it. Wish my copy would work in XP.
    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!

    Same here. Mine was found in the drive when my family bought its first PC (with 8MB RAM!). Running between the wickets was always really dodgy, with the faintest tug on the mouse resulting in running, so I just bashed boundaries instead.
