    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'.
    Haha, thats sensational. Can't say I've ever had consecutive ties on ICC!

    Dug out ICC2005, always annoyed me the 20/20 didnt have its own little section on this one, and killed the List A stats

    Though they helped Jimmy Anderson here....

    SO CW experts, ICC 2005, the little icons by every delivery, with the grey/red circles suggesting where the ball pitched, anyone know for sure which each circle actually indicates? is it place pitched/where batsman thought it would (in which case my spinners are beauties at deceiving in the air) or where pitched/where intended (and they are just ****), or something else?

    No idea. I've just got up ICC 2005 to try and work out what you're talking about, but as far as I see there's no indicator of pitch. Could you take a screenshot?

    When you bowl a ball, on the ball by ball screen on the left theres a little display of the batting crease, with red and grey circles on there... Have a look at my screenshot about 4 posts up.

    I'm presuming its to do with where the ball pitched, as watching the replays it does look like it marries up

    I'm pretty sure the red is where the ball actually pitched, but what does the grey mean??? Its never been in the manual either, I remember looking years ago..

    Playing through my Warwickshire game now - in June of the second season, right in the middle of T20.

    Playing against Worcestershire, on pitch described as having something in it for the bowlers. Was going along reasonably - 3/90 after 12, until Ian Bell decided to explode.

    Ended up on 3/220 - Bell on 114 (52), and Darren Maddy on 50 (28). They put on 149 in 10.5 overs. Chris Whelan had the flattering figures of 0/56.

    When they batted, Chris Woakes went for 14 off his first over, only for him to come back towards the end and take 3 wickets in an over. Chris Gayle and Imran Tahir bowled economically, and Dawid Malan managed to defend the 83 required from 6 balls at the end. That win takes us to third on the T20 table.

    Currently sitting 4th on the Championship table, since my bowlers can't take wickets and we keep ending up with draws. Yorkshire out in front by 12 points, on the same number of games as me. Sussex are one point above me, but have played two more games, and Kent has 4 more from one additional game.

    29 batting points from 7 games so far. Leading the CB40 ATM.

    Random things to have happened:
    James Ord is averaging above 60 from 22 FC games,
    Malan so far has 941 @ 94.1, and is striking above 75. Seems too easy for him ATM. Chris Woakes has dropped his List A bowling average below 20.
    Sean Ervine, at Hampshire, made 1000 before the end of May.
    My sworn enemy:

    Just played a CC game vs Hampshire. We were 5/150-ish and looking like failing to get a single batting point, given I'd decided to play 5 bowlers. That is, until Tim Ambrose and Chris Woakes put on 423 for the 6th wicket.

    Utterly insane, as both of them made double tons. Ambrose got out, but I declared as soon as Woakes got his 200. Made him open the batting in the T20 that followed - hit 50 at a SR above 220.

    Gayle is starting to come into his destructive best as well; but Shahid Afridi is an absolute flop.

    Haha, nice. My best recovery was being 150 odd for 7, in a test against Pakistan, and then putting up a partnership of 274 for the 8th wicket, beetween Bell and Swann.

    Haha, not bad at all. Swann being in a partnership that big would be very interesting viewing.

    Ended up taking out all 3 trophies in 2011.

    Neil Carter, Darren Pattinson and Darren Maddy all retired at the end of the year. Released Naqaash Tahir (didn't think he was worth 46,500) Varun Chopra, Andrew Miller and a couple of others.

    Brought in Shakib al-Hasan as my overseas player, with Imran Tahir as the reserve. Chris Gayle returns for the T20, alongside AB de Villiers.

    On the domestic front, I brought in quite a few new signings. Joe Root, Gary Ballance, Matt Coles and a half-decent regen spinner came in as youth prospects, along with the experienced Nick Compton, Michael Carberry and Tim Murtagh.

    First XI consists of:
    Carberry, James Ord, Compton, Dawid Malan, Tim Ambrose, Shakib, Phil Mustard, Chris Woakes, Murtagh, Rob Yau [regen], Boyd Rankin.

    Disappointment in Sussex's 2030 season, pipped to the Championship title by a single point. First time we've failed to win since the early 2020s. Halfway through 2031 now, normal service being resumed
