Do people tend to set their own fields when they play?
Don't tend to bother with any of that. I have average attacking-ness for the bowling/fielding; bowling straight and to a good length; and I never amend the field manually.
I just can't see the logic in having a short-leg in a T20 game. I can never be bothered to change it though.
The default field settings are outrageous, however I see so many wickets at silly point from well hit cuts.

Did have some success getting Chris Woakes to bowl with full aggression to an ultra-defensive field one day though.
Random happening in my Warwickshire game:
Boyd Rankin, in a Pro40 game: 8-40 from his 8 overs. Held out hopes of him getting all 10, but Woakes took two.
Nicely done! Never had a bowler take more than 7 wickets in an OD/ODI match on ICC.
What's the best line-up you can put together with a county team (within the first few years - not exclusively regens)?
I think mine would be hard to top:
- Michael Carberry
- Phil Mustard
- Jonathan Trott
- Ian Bell
- Nick Compton
- Dawid Malan
- Tim Ambrose
- Shakib al-Hasan
- Chris Woakes
- Tim Murtagh
- Boyd Rankin
Considering Mustard, Malan and Ambrose have turned gun in my game, it's one hell of an XI. James Ord (who averages 50 in FC cricket), Joe Root, Gary Ballance, Jos Buttler, Rikki Clarke and Matt Coles make up some of my bench strength. Touch light on bowling depth, but that batting line-up is far-and-away the best in the CC, IMO.

Thats pretty crazy! If anything I'm the opposite, I'm struggling to make big scores once batsmen are set on the new version.
