    does the sim factor in having specialist openers?
    Does an ordinary test record have too much of an effect on a player's performance?

    maybe i should play kohli in place of one of the openers?

    Not playing a specialist opener makes an enormous difference.

    My experience of the sim is that you'd be as well having Chris Martin opening the batting if you're going to put a non-opener there.

    Haha it's not quite that bad at all in my experience, particularly if the batsman's preferred position is down at #3 (which McKenzie's is in the database).

    Really? Is that where he's batted most of his FC career?

    Surprised tstl, was thinking of picking him as backup opener myself.

    Ok, I exaggerated a little, but I've seen teams have their best batsman average single digits opening because he was a number 5 or 6 batsman.

    Yeah, ITC loves its openers. I've actually found that batting an opener at #3 works pretty well too.

    Ian Blackwell in Cricsim Second Class (A considerably lower standard of competition than CWCPL).

    4 matches, 114 runs at 16.29 and 9 wickets at 46.22.

    He is going to get destroyed in this.

    He is better than what he's shown though. Just in poor CPL form.
