Story of NZ cricket isn't it
Indeed it is

When i played Aus, he scored three 200's in a row, the game he didnt score 200 i think he scored lke 100. I got smased in that series.
Just won all four trophies as Surrey in 2012. It's the first time I've ever done the quadruple on any version of ICC, which is odd because I feel that I've had a couple of better sides than this one on previous versions but that's just the way it goes I guess. It probably helped that I didn't have any significant international call-ups (just Yuvraj in the IPL and Moon for one ODI series at the start of the season).
For the NZ woes, I found it pretty easy to get a decent side together. The only variable in the side below is Sinclair, because in one of my games he's awful and in another he's freaking Godlike. But this team works in ICC 06 at least:
Mathew Horne/Martin Guptill/I had to wait for a good regen
Mathew Sinclair/Peter Ingram/Tim Lythe/Ross Taylor (all three are very good)
Brendan McCullum/Mathew Sinclair
All those batsmen averaged in the 40s, with Fulton in the 60s for most of his career. All of those bowlers have averaged in the 20s in at least one of my two games.
West Indies aren't quite the force they used to be, but bowling them out for 34 is a new low...
Also proof that sixes have most definitely increased in the more recent versions of the series, have managed five in an innings twice now.
Two more, with Zander de Bruyn not having a great deal of fortune when approaching three figures, and an exciting county championship victory.
Recently went back to an old game on ICC08 after struggling to get into one on 2009. After an ordinary first spell, WA's Ben Carlson came back on and tore through the Windies in an awesome spell of 2.3-1-2-7!
This is also from many years earlier where Beau Casson snared a wicket with his first two balls in ODIs.
One for the statisticians - I wonder if four players have ever scored centuries in a first class innings and their scores were all consecutive to each other...
I was really excited in my ICC 2005 game. I thrashed Australia by 10 wickets in the 1st Test, so was looking for a series win in Australia in the 2nd and final Test.
This, ladies and gentlemen, is what you call a choke.
