    I quite like them. Once the great side and the guys just below retire its very doable, especially since NZ are on their regens and you get a few pretty good ones.

    Phil Hughes scores 307 on the first day of the 3rd Ashes test in 2018. Donald who?

    Turns out he was the only player to get three figures in the match too.

    Thats hugely impressive - not a single catching opportunity given either. I think he might be just a touch too good for the game IMO.

    There's no logic behind some of the players that ICC absolutely loves and decides to make unrealistically awesome.

    Not a bad domestic player, to be fair, but come on.

    Pies Walker! I used to love watching him play, lol.
    Probably because of his stats and they have worked off them

    Been playing too much poker lately, after reading that ppl still play online i'm gonna go try get a new online team ready.
    My old one was quite good but seemed to get beaten too much online, need more strike bowlers instead of stacking the team with allrounders I think

    EDIT: Just loaded game up. Haven't played since August. Now want to keep working on my old side instead of starting a new one. Looks as though I worked hard to get a well balanced bowling attack whilst keeping the batting long. Top order slightly week but plenty of hitters, Flintoff is 34 but don't want Mendis to go on international duty so might just play a few games this season and see how they go.

    Im still play ICC2006. Have recentlty undertaken the Windies team and have dominated. Dwayne Bravo and Dwayne Smith are fantastic.

    Was fairly happy with this chase to seal the series, bowling so hot & cold though... batting on the other hand

    I seem to like ICC 2005 and 2006 better than the recent ones.

    You could say this bloke's a bit of an in-and-out sort. Seems to come good in really tough situations, though - came in at 99-4 when he made that 160, a six-hour epic in bowler-friendly conditions. Had a bit of an impact on the game.
