    Questions need to be asked about that 17.

    Wow, thats a crazy run of batting form from Gambhir - ICC tends to produce something unreal like that from time to time.

    I've had it happen a couple of times, but there's always some heartbreaking <50 innings that makes it look less than perfect, like that 17 does.

    Just completed a seemingly impossible run chase in a crazy Test match.
    2013 Australia v India. India inexplicably pick a four-pronged pace attack for this match, they set me 368 to win in the final day. I injured their 'keeper Patel in their 2nd innings so I know there should be alot of free runs through byes. Obviously Hughes is who i'm centering my chase around, but he is forced to retire hurt, much to my disgust. After a collapse i'm left at what is effectively 7/214. Cameron White & Mitchell Johnson both have strong pace bowling preferences which obviously suits this Indian attack and they amazingly manage to hit 160 runs in the final session on an extremely sporting pitch to win me the game. Though the strangest thing was that India chose to bowl their part-time medium pacers with half an hour to go in the final session(for about 6 overs) and it was these overs of intensified batting aggression that ultimately allowed me to win the Test. Would go as far as saying that the AI threw the Test tbh

    Very nice run chase. You'd think after all these years the ICC developers would've ensured that the AI reduced the amount of dumb decisions like selections and part-time bowlers at crucial times (new ball, important times in tests, etc) it tends to make.

    Yeah man. And also what is even weirder is that Hughes sustained a fracture in that match so is out for the rest of the series - but on his form chart it shows that he played a OD and T20 match after the above Test match(scoring 148 & 96 I might add), yet is still out for four more weeks

    Never seen that many in an innings before!

    Nice consistency by Oram in this ODI series...

    Just a shame his bowling form couldn't get any worse.

    After ICC was screwed up real bad, I've now re downloaded it, and have a Hampshire save with a couple of people.

    It's good fun, 2 of us had this amazing Kent save that went till 2019, then we farted around for a few years in some new saves.

    Hoping to make this another long laster.

    Got the Kent save back and running, so ditched Hampshire.

    Just started a NZ save, have wanted to play as them for a while now.

    Interested in playing with them because they are a challenge, have some good young players, as well as names that aren't frustrating, and I know most of their players.

    Lost 3-0 to Sri Lanka in the Tests and 5-0 in the ODI's, but still really enjoying the save. Bring on the Pakistani's!

    So I've developing the ideas of how I want my teams to look.

    Test
    Ingram
    Cummings
    Sinclair
    Taylor
    Ryder
    Hay/other
    Watling/other (forget name)
    Vettori
    Franklin
    Bond
    O'Brien

    I've also got Southee and Boult in training/waiting, as well as Williamson.

    One Day Internationals
    McCullum
    Ingram
    Guptill
    Taylor
    Ryder
    Sinclair
    Oram
    Vettori
    Southee
    Bond
    O'Brien

    Roughly my sides, as I don't have the game open ATM. Lost 3-0 in the Tests v Pakistan, and in the first ODI, they somehow mowed down my target of over 300 int he first ODI. Seeing as it's almost 7am and I've been up all night, I'll play more tomorrow night sometime, and update you later on.
