Playing as England, International only.
Ive got the test match side of things ok, its pretty tough as England but we managed to beat Sri Lanka 2-1 in the opening series of the game. I was using mostly experienced players except for Strauss and Hutchinson.
Ive only just been playing the game recently and only just discovered this forum. Ive seen a few of the posts saying England become a good team after 4 or 5 seasons and the likes of Bell, Pieterson, Bassano etc. come good. I was wondering, do you guys pick them from the start, or after a few seasons to let them mature first? I only picked Strauss and Hutchinson as they were 24/25 y.o. and the likes of Bell are 20 y.o. Is that too young?
Also are there any other spinners who get good test figures after Giles? And who do you normally use to open after Trescothic and Vaughan?
OK, to my BIG problem... ODI's
I got pelted by SL and India in the tri-angular. I just cant seem to find an even vaguely succesfull tactic to approach the game with. Ive been trying when i bat to start on 3 bars (4 in good conditions) and go up from there. Im kinda hoping someone sticks and makes a big innings somewhere along the line.
When bowling i usually stick to 2 bars to keep it tight, and have an average to defensive field, but ge whacked at between 4.5 and 6 an over!! I do well to got 3 an over when batting!!
And who are some good ODI players? Do you go for more experience or blood the youth?
Sorry i know it seems like im asking about 20 questions!! Im new & keen, what can i say!!
