    Another Extra

    Well after this discussion has gone on for seasons, we have decided to invoke the same rule in WCC as we did with the International Series..


    Teams will this season be allowed to remove the bowling stats of 2 players in each form..
    However you will not be able to delete stats from players who average more then 10 overs a game in 4D and 5 overs a game in OD....

    When you post your Bowling Orders, we will ask you to select your players who you want to delete...

    So what exactly does this achieve? Stop people from bowling if they have poor bowling stats and you want to play them as a batsman alone? Sounds like a fair idea. I think the OPM limit for 4D games should be increased though... 10 is a little low, espeically considering the fact that its 5 in OD games.

    So do we nominate two for each form for the whole season, or do we get to change it for each game?

    just a quick comment, there are batsmen that have more than 5 overs per match in one day, but often strike rates that are often 50+. the thing that i don't understand with regards to this is that most teams would have probably have 5 bowlers who are better. it would make no sense for these players to bowl, so why should they? perhaps i read that wrong, but if you're going to invoke such a rule i think that you should be able to nulify any players bowling stats, not just somes...

    Yeah I agree. But if this was to be the case, it should have been announced BEFORE the draft, as recruiting tactics could definately have changed as a result.

    Considering everyone has already recruited, there has to be some limit imposed. Having said that though, I think the limit is too small for 4D games. Most bowlers who bowl 5 overs per match in 1D games would bowl a lot more than 10 in 4D games, and I think the limits should match up and reflect each other.

    Im with nibbs...if someone bowls less then 4 or less then 10 overs they will hardly make a difference...whilst I have Godwin in my side who bowls 6 & 10 overs respectively at TERRIBLE strike rates...

    Its just logic really...I mean realistically if you had Godwin in your side, it is unlikely he would bowl at all, let alone 6 overs in OD cricket/10 overs in FC

    na i like, it showed it worked in the int series so far and it will work in wcc and what it does is that instead of your b smith who is an ordinary bolwer he will now not bowl and your prefered bowlers will get through there alloted overs.....good job wcc

    Well i have to agree with Guy and Nibbs, cus it seems strange that a player like R Arnold bowling stats can be taken out in International Cricket, but cus he bowls more then 5 overs, he can't be can't out in domestic cricket. If you going to add this rule it should be the same one as WCC international. As having a restrication of just 5 overs doesn't really solve anything.

    NO Negotiations on that...

    Will it be permanent, or only for that season?

    Also, it's just a choice right, we don't have to do it?
