The guy just kept beating his best bowling figures in every ****ing game. Ridiculous find in just the second season of the save game in ICC 2005.

ICC 2010 save, playing as NZ, we're up to the present day.

Hosting SL, win the toss and bat on a seaming deck. Keep in mind here that this version of NZ is a batting side; we're rocking Tastle at 11 and even Martin Guptill averages 45+ in Tests. We get rolled for 120. ****.

We come out to bowl, our try-hard-but-not-very-good #engineroom CdG-led attack pick up a couple of wickets. I'd picked a specialist bowler for once and he sucked, so most of the wickets went to a Mark Craig-but-good regen, eventually knocking them over for 300 odd. **** x2.

Out walks Jeet Raval. He's in awful form, averaging mid-20s in FC cricket leading up to the Test, but form is temporary etc etc and a Test average of 62 after 44 games gives me faith in him. Guptill double-fails, and here's KW. We're about 200 behind, the pitch is doing a bit, the SL attack is handy.

They put on about 450. Raval is out for 186 and Williamson goes on to make 318. Chuck in a 75 from Sean Eathorne and we're basically in Watling-McCullum-Neesham comeback territory here. NZ end up with 650, set SL 400 in 4 sessions, knock them over for a 240 run win with a session to spare, the regen offie taking another bag.

That sounds a lot like this Test.

When this guy retires, my side is rapidly going to drop in world rankings.His partners are Lee and Watson who get their wickets at 35-40 per season, Gillespie who usually gets his wickets between 30-35 each season and they are all getting old. The batting is good but when he retires, we are ****ed because Australia doesn't get good bowling regens.

Currently simming through an England save on 2015, with the rule that I must always play Josh Cobb (downgraded from 'must always open with Josh Cobb' in about 2021). 4500ish runs in 100 Tests at 22. Heroic.

Ireland and Afghanistan getting test status happened at the worst possible time for them. I'd rather wait until the next version and have them playing tests.

I tend to buy it every couple of years so looking forward to getting next year's version with Ireland and Afghanistan
