- Dome roof will be closed for OD games only

CW Oval
- Large ground
- Nice easy-paced surface, decent bounce, a bit of seam assistance
- A bit for spin bowlers late in the game

CWBCC Stadium
- Largest ground in CWLand
- Easy-paced surface, decent bounce, little seam assistance
- Lots of assistance for spin bowlers throughout

Goffmouth Park
- Small ground
- Easy-paced surface, decent bounce, a bit of seam assistance
- A bit of assistance for spin bowlers throughout

Squads will be posted here at the end of the check-in period.
But the end of the check-in period is on the same day as the first warm-up. How are captains supposed to select a squad for that first game if their squad isn't even confirmed yet? Are the squads in the other thread guaranteed not to be changed (except in the case of a trade)?

Players will be added on Friday as cover to squads with outstanding players. I think there are about 3 unsigned players still.

And yes, squads will only change otherwise if there is a trade.

how is it possible then that some people basically suck at OD games but are quite good at FC/FD games when there's no distinction made between the two sets of averages?

Different sims are used, and also obviously you can't be exactly the same in both games, and there is a chance that you will not play as well as your stats suggest - or that you will do even better than your stats. In this simulation, your signup stats are just a starting point but your form will eventually decide how good you are.

yeah, that why odi and fc speciaists arise, but then again, at the end of every season, your form defaults doesnt it?. So in effect, could go from being an od specialist one season, to an fc specialist the next?
