    The other guys posted Phil Hughes after 60 odd tests....heres him after 170...



    Absolutely stupidly ridiculously godly. That 580 took like 3 days, but I did just to see if they would actually get him, because the amount of times I've declared with him in the 300's and 400's is stupid....and I play him on 4-bar aggresive from the off in tests and 6-bar in ODI...it't just stupid. No one else even gets close to scoring 300's, yet he does it for fun...i think the highest non-Hughes score is 264....I know I've gone past 400 4 times with Hughes.

    Wade is also stupidly good, I went straight in with him as the WK, so he has about 160 tests as well, averages 55 & 40. Rest of the team isn't all that great though to be honest -_-

    Haha, that's ridiculously good! What a behemoth! And he's 34 with more to come. 200 tests on the cards, then?

    It's either easy, or an editor, for sure.

    Nz

    Has anybody for a decent starting XI with NZ? and any tips for OD bowling/batting, I always get smashed and when i chase i get mowed down for like 150-200 runs... I change the bowling lenghts but it doesnt seem to help, same happens in t20, i collapse like the real NZ team, it's rather pathetic

    I set custom fields. Put 5 men on the boundry (backword point, extra cover, long on, mid wicket, and backward square). Short mid on and short midwicket to save singles and mid off/3rd man in the ring. That's a great field for 1 day matches. You can move square leg to the offside and bowl outside off stump too. But it's difficult to defend 200 in any case. But you can defend 220+ on bad pitches, and 250+ on good pitches.

    I tend to try and bowl first, set my field to as defensive as it can get once the fielding restrictions are over and bowl at the batsmens weaknesses. If someone is proving impossible to get out I think try bowling at their strengths to see if that trips them up or simply gets them off strike.

    4 in a row.

    Mitch Johnson under a different name, because I renamed everyone to make it our school cricket team.

    Can you peeps see the picture, or has it been removed? I can't see it, that's for sure. Text for the pic is there though.

    mmm

    Just found out that Martin Guptill is a pretty decent opener in the ODI form, aves 42 from 30 innings, my ODI team is pretty decent at the moment, beat South Africa 2-1, lost to Lanka 3-0 , Beat Africa 3-2 and now i head to the world cup! My team is

    Fulton
    Guptil
    Ryder
    Hay
    Taylor
    McCullum
    Oram
    Franklin
    Vettori
    Mills
    Bond

    As for my Test team, ive found Flynn and Ryder an awesome 3/4 combo, theyve got those spots locked in. Fulton has acouple of decent innings but nothing to right home about, I find Taylor scores 50+ innings when istart him at one def for awhile. my team is

    Fulton / Guptil (Only just started using Guptil, Aves 32)
    McCullum (Scored afew big 100's opening)
    Flynn
    Ryder
    Taylor
    Hay
    Oram
    Franklin
    Vettori
    Bond
    O'Brien
