    Stumped!

    Going back to the above ..... some musings on the importance of fielding My best fielder has a bullet arm and averages 0.41 catches a match. Let's remove him and then my best fielder who has an actual of 10 for fielding averages 0.31 catches a game - my worst fielders who have an actual of 3 to...

    I dont think you overpaid for him. Money is relative as well of course in real life and in Stumped - if you are sitting on $5m is it only 10% of your funds. He maybe fills in a piece of your jigsaw and if you wait you don't find another and every week the other components of the team, or squad...

    I was thinking of him but didn't mention his name as bidding was live. I am not saying you payment for him was too high just there a number of smiliaraities to my chap in terms of bowling and bowling split which means 5k is possibly too low an estimate as he sold for 525k The bowling pot...

    Just looked at the TM based - i think i may be undervaluing him at 5k based on current sales!

    ok to put you out of your misery he is POT - 32 BAT (10,10,12) 43 BOWL (18,9,16) medium pacer. Shame he wasn't a couple more on the bowling front' although the mix is quite good with 18 Accuracy . He as 'PoT 16 Stamina and 8 fielding with 6 captaincy at the moment I think though he is a bit...

    Lol I know you are right - I am looking for the appliance of science when this is just an old village fairground coconut shy! One of them is a Bangladeshi so I should do the decent thing - and if he is any good Id rather be dealing with our esteemed Bangladeshi Manager and new assistants than...

    b tw this is why i made a suggestion on the board 2 years ago that once you chosen it would be fun to see what the abilities of th eother 4 had been jusst to see if you got it right or wrong (its human nature to know - like any popular quiz programme based on making a chance choice)

    Thank to you both- yes it is a good feeling - 2 years of playing - this guy was found by our Scouts a year and a half ago and at 21.11 has finally made it. As you all know it is quite something nurturing someone in Stumped (the times things take are one of the games attractions)- as in the...

    A small step for man, a giant leap for Jura CC..... we have our first ever home grown player achieve NAT squad status. I doubt he will play (but you never know with fitness) but Palanthingal has been noticed by the Indian selectors and will tick another goal off our wish list for the season-

    I'm sorry Marcussjd9 but your 2 teams in the Chaos Cup today are void by default as the age does not start from the youngest to the oldest - however my Geese also have one player out of position I'm not sure if they will void both of consider how many are wrong in their decisions splitting...

    01 Feb 17:25 - Stumped! News: Senior One Day Internationals Return That is right. Interrnational fixtures are generated for a busy month for the ODI players. Games are occuring every 3.5 days - and we will not have any extra fitness updates running, so managers need to at least think about...

    As a suggestion what about Elizabeth from Witches Abroad - she is from her posts on the site an 'elder lady' who always seems terribly polite, interested and friendly and has just got back onto Stumped - she may relish the chance of a bit more Stumped via the CWC and being part of a group (or...

    I won't go into the individual matches (there seems to have been some notable ones) but events transpired to put the table into 4 elements (for now at least - but it can change each week by 5 points in the blink of an eye!) Teams from 10 - 14 are playing for the minor places now (Points 1 to...
