    On my iPod I was playing Sri Lanka as New Zealand.

    They won the toss and batted, Sangakkara scoring a century to take them to 323 all out. Our batting was quite terrible as we made it to 158 all out with Mendis taking 5 wickets and Samaraweera 3. On their second innings they got 322. Surprisingly, Ryder got me the most wickets in that innings. We then needed 487 to win or to bat 2 days out. Jeet Raval scored a half century at the top but Guptill, Broom and Taylor all got out in their thirties to bring Ryder and Williamson to the middle, with over a day to bat and 310 odd runs required. They both go on to make their centuries and win the match for us! Ryder got 167 off 345, while Williamson scored 142 off 279 in a record partnership worth 298. A great match, however unrealistic it is

    Very possibly. It was a home test. Raval is the second highest rated NZ batsman in this game though :/

    Raval is doing a decent job for me in all formats. Started off being unable to get to 50 (had like 5 Test scores of 40-49 in a row) but has just had a break out year, scoring maiden centuries all round.

    just made my highest test score, 7dec/1040 as Australia v New Zealand.

    this is my second season since Phil Hughes retired and the batting has remained strong although less reliable if I lose early wickets. I also scored 9dec/1001 in a draw at Pakistan, but those were ridiculous batting paradises against a defensive team that was scoring at 1.5-2 rpo. My bowlers took a hit that series :P

    Thats a fantastic effort particularly at test level - I've never got close to making 900 in a test so to pass 1000 twice is worth showing off about!

    Not really ICC, but in CC2011 I just played a Twenty/20 where Watson took 5-20 off 3.5 (14 dots) and scored 107* (54b, 16x4, 2x6), reaching the ton in 49 balls. Helped bowl the Windies out for 180 and pass the total with 23 balls to spare.

    I think the best way to know what works best on the game is to experiment yourself - you'll find certain players that are dominant in real life that are under-rated in ICC, and theres always a few that are way over-rated. I find that second team averages are a pretty good judge of how a player is expected to perform at higher levels. As far as match tactics go, again its what you think works best as theres no set answer. Like in real life, if you want to go hard at the bowling in the early stages of an ODI you'll make a quick start but potentially lose wickets, and if you're needing to bat out a draw in a test then setting the batsmen to bat very defensively is obviously the best option. I guess one hint is to set custom fields to counter the strengths of opposition batsmen if you're keen to really play the game seriously; I just stick to default fields myself the majority of the time.
