    Mind if I update the First XI now I've got simming averages, Liam? Seems I had miscalculated a thing or 2.

    Looking at the other sides, we could seriously struggle...

    Is that for the warmups or the season? Kinda throws the designed balance of the team if this is the rule for the season

    hmm, can I wait until after the warm-ups to name my 1st XI?

    The was kind of the point of the games for me. To give guys equal opportunity to impress.

    VC4 needs a 1st XI for the file otherwise it can't sim properly (not necessarily - Liam could just pick the XI for you, just the VC4 simming file needs to have an incumbent named for each batting position).
    Also you need to name your bowling line up.
    Plus, if you fail to submit a team sheet it can be used as a default.

    Well from the start I talked about 11 CW players for 9 spots. The 2 per team rule was never really a secret. It's meant to give CW players as many opportunities as possible.
    Sreesanth said, "Next ball he was beaten and I said, 'is this the King Charles Lara? Who is this impostor, moving around nervously? I should have kept my mouth shut for the next ball - mind you, it was a length ball - Lara just pulled it over the church beyond the boundary! He is a true legend."

    As Greg alluded to, I've selected a default first XI to allow me to test the database, so you don't need to name a final first XI (so to speak) right now. But before the season begins, you will.

    Ok, that sounds fine as I didnt want to name an XI until after the warm-ups/try-outs.

    As for the 9 CWebbers per team, I didnt see it and it would have changed my drafting strategy. However, if you mentioned it then I guess its my fault for missing it.

    Can we use all three in a warmup XI though?

    You raise a good point. I suppose that's fair enough. Go for it.

    Apparently my bowling orders need to include every available bowling option? Is that right?

    If so, here's my edited bowling line up:

    1. Davis
    2. Wright
    3. Bichel, Telemachus
    4. de Bruyn
    5. Weber
    6. Ritchie
    7. Kearsley, Nayak
    8. Malone

    With that for the default line up being:

    1. Davis
    2. Wright
    3. de Bruyn
    4. Weber
    5. Ritchie
    6. Kearsley
    7. Malone
