    World Cricket League

    Hello cricket fans,

    Tried to get in on the act in the World Club Cricket, did the sign up thing on the website but I'm feeling lonely as nowt has happened!

    Anyway, point of the thread was an old cricket pbm (yes - i said old) named The World Cricket League within which I managed a couple of teams before the game folded in 1997.

    In comparison to current cricket pbem's it seemed a whole lot more realistic with batting and bowling ratings based entirely on the players real life abilities and form. The league included virtually all the first class cricket clubs from around the world and had a footbal style transfer market.

    Yes it was simple but it was good fun. If anyone knows of any similar PBEM's that currently run or anyone actually remembers The World Cricket League please reply.

    Else I may still be lonely!

    Mate you have to be in it to know how good it is. Don't pass judgements unless you have had the experience in this PBeM. In everyones opinion here @ WCC and of the WCC academys opinion and the 20-odd waiting lists opinion, this is the best around. Actually thats the first time ive realised how many are involved in this. Further credit to blewy...

    Well, I may not have to take everyone's word for it as I've heard from 'the board' that I may get into the academy!

    we'll see how it goes.

    Must be Simon's favouritism shwoign through again

    Thank God I'm not on teh academy waiting list 'ey Simon!

    Seriously I think it's because the board are trying to see who is interested, the quickest to reply to an e-mail will be given spots becuase alot of them hasve lost interest etc.

    Or it could be the fact that the academy is increasing in size this season
