    Which reduces the negative effect.
    If you don't have decent like for like replacements in a squad of 16 then you've drafted poorly.

    As Centurymaker showed it is hard to cover all bases in a squad of 16.

    And even with all the combination he posted of 17 players if 2 spinners get injured you are screwed.

    No, you just have to suck it up and pick the best you've got.

    Australia didn't moan to the ICC during the Ashes when they were left with no decent spinners.

    Australia have no decent spinners.

    But i am sure if any team was going to go on a 30 test match tour they would pick a squad bigger than 16.

    I think that's part of the fun to an extent; trying to scrape together a team from the combination of players you have available.

    You could always make use of mid-season trading as well.

    You've convinced me, I propose allowing us all to have squads of 500 players in order to cover every single injury eventuality.

    Does a player's form during the season make a difference in the subsequent matches?
    Likewise, does a team's form matter or are all matches mutually exclusive?

    With you could say with so many injury prone players picked and retired too is somewhat realistic,

    We are not using it the same SIM here it seems, but reckong not using it with random players getting injuries a lot would depend on luck in that regard instead of based on actual injury history.

    And over a 30 5 day match season it is very well possible that 2 spinners, 2 batsman,2 fast bowlers or 2 keepers get injured at the same time, in which case the team getting those injuries without adequate backup would be screwed on nothing based on random luck.
    Having now played with the sim for a while I can safely assure you that unless your squad balance is horrible or you have been struck by lightning in your life, you won't have trouble putting up a viable 11 due to injuries.

    If you need to fix it, trade.

    Personally don't see why trading should be allowed to be honest. Seems to me a copout for people who haven't drafted well.

    Yeah, surely trades should just be for between seasons?

    I've consciously picked a few batsmen who can bowl a bit of spin, as well as players like Flintoff, Colly, Rashid to cover different eventualities as I assumed all along we would have injuries.

    Well technically this is "in between" seasons as we haven't started yet. I'm not completely decided either way, although I agree that in-season trading is a no.

    This I have to work out by trial, I would like it to be in but PEWS warns me that the effect may be too pronounced (leading to unrealistically long and deep form troughs/spikes)

    Even if you reset morale there's still individual form built into it.

    The morale thing is stupid and I'm resetting that, but is the form that comes from ratings etc reasonable?
