    The older ICC games tended to be more h4x apparently.

    Not that I noticed it much
    5-0

    RIP Craig Walsh (Craig) 1985-2012

    Proudly supporting the #2 cricketer of all time.

    - No bowler in Zimbabwe averages less than 32 in first-class cricket, however no batsman averages more than 37.
    - West Indies love the specialist keeper. B Smith has played 210 ODI's for a batting average of 13.21.
    - England gave B Forrest 78 Tests to prove himself a batsman. He averaged 27.43.
    Haha, classic ICC. I remember in one of my games with New Zealand, Mushfiqur Rahim played about 200 ODIs before he retired and hadn't hit a century despite batting at 5-7 for most of the matches. Not surprised about the Zimbabwe statistic though the Indian and Sri Lankan ones are a little surprising. England selections can be a little bemusing, with a seemingly endless list of quality regenerated players who are shelved only for seemingly poorer players to play a huge number of matches.

    Haha, yes. Although people like Martin Bicknell might argue that's not unrealistic.

    I have been winning a minimum of 2 trophies every year for the last 3 years in ICC 2005 and a sum total of one guy has represented England in tests that too in 2 tests.

    A random delivery from Andrew Ellis just went, according to commentary & the umpire's signal, for 6 leg byes. This is despite the fact the batsman left it alone outside off, and the ball thudded into Matthew Sinclair's gloves.

    Yes, I have 37-year-old Matthew Sinclair wicketkeeping in a FC tour game.

    I've never seen six legbyes but I have a screenshot of six byes which I'll try and find. This was in an earlier version so I can't remember exactly what happened in-game but it seems like its a rare bug in the game thats still yet to be solved.

    I gave Steve O'Keefe a bowl on his test debut on a fourth day pitch hoping that he'd break a partnership. He took 9/34, which are the best figures I have ever seen on ICC personally. Steve Smith pulled 8/38 in a One Day International the other day, too. This artifical intelligence never ceases to surprise me
    Oh for a strong arm and a walking stick

    What's a regenerated player? Is that when the computer makes someone new up?

    Seems to be a thing with spinners - Todd Astle took 5/5 against Australia in an ODI, and the West Indies have been relying upon the spin duo of Nikita Miller and Imran Khan. Hardly the best spinners ever, but are the #1 and #2 ranked ODI bowlers in my game respectively.

    Played SL, they played 2 pace bowlers alongside 2 spinners and a spinning AR. I think there were 3 or 4 wickets to fall to pace in the series, generally with batsmen on high aggression against the 2nd new ball to take advantage of it not being spin.

    9/34 for SoK is incredible though. What year are you in ATM?

    This was the first series played against the West Indies since the beginning of the game (which is April the 1st, I think). Makes it even more ridiculous :\

    Playing through my 5 game ODI series against India, locked at 1-1 with one match remaining. They won the first by 7 wickets (despite Guptill and Raval putting on 173), then we followed it up with a 70-odd run win, as Raval tonned up.

    Games three and four were both tied - can't say I've seen it before on ICC. The 3rd game was 8/268 plays 7/268, and the 4th was 8/254 plays 254. In the last one, Sam Wells made 122, and Todd Astle took 2 wickets in the 49th over with 1 run needed from 12, to bowl India out and secure the tie, but both were beaten for MOTM by Ajinka Rahane, who made 115.

    Utterly crazy series thus far. Also had an Indian regen pop up with the last name 'Lahore'.
