Am planning to develop a text-based Cricket management simulator to be used in
play by email games. Each team will be represented by a roster and before a game is played, the manager have to send in their teamsheets with the teams to the
The rosters contain player stats such as batting average, strike rate, bowling average and strike rate.
The teamsheet will contain the batting and bowling orders sent by the managers for each game.
The game engine will then simulate the match and a report file will be generated.
Am using C++ to code and this game. Currently am working on tweaking the algorithms to generate wickets and runs. Also need to add some commentary lines, and a few more additional features as fielding stats.
A sample over report is shown below:
Bowling from the Pavillion End is J_Veron
Opening Batsmen are Carlos & Marlos
0.1, J_Veron to Carlos 2 runs scored
0.2, J_Veron to Carlos 2 runs scored
0.3, J_Veron to Carlos 0 runs scored
0.4, J_Veron to Carlos 1 runs scored
0.5, J_Veron to Marlos 0 runs scored
0.6, J_Veron to Marlos 1 runs scored
End of Over 1
pak - 6/0 RunRate = 6.00
Hopefully the game will be out before the end of June 07.
