Yep, I did the same, up to 92nd myself
Was there a problem with the server just before the start if the game today? A few people have said they could not update their teams due to the site crashing every time they went to load it up? Iv noticed if you do it just before the game starts to run very very slow.

There were well over 2,500 modifications processed in the 20 minutes prior to the match starting as well as a lot of other activity right across CW.
It's one of the reasons we have the pending mod system in place to allow people to make changes whenever they like.
Before big games it's always a good idea to allow yourself a bit more time to get your changes in.
So annoying when you pick someone who gets dropped! So far I've wasted Mills, Riaz, Shoaib, Odoyo and Munaf in matches that they haven't played.
I've slipped a little in total rankings to 112th - I still have 102 mods remaining.
Up to 59th myself with 94 mods remaining
91 modifications left
4 players in action tomorrow including my captain
If a batsmen makes a century does he get bonus points for reaching both 50 and 100 or just for the 100?
just for the 100
It's times like this that I'm glad I chose dilshan as my captain.
Up to 91st now with 85 changes left
up to 82nd with 8103 points and 73 changes left
also I've got 8 players in action tomorrow
Now down to 580th on 7147 points but have managed to hold onto 105 changes after already altering my team for tomorrow's games.
I reckon another couple of days of restraint then will pile in. 13 days of games left.

Rather than saving all my modifications for the knockout stages, I'm trying to cash in on some easy pickings with a test side vs minnow.
I've now rallied slightly and am on 10013 points in 264th with 60 mods in the bank still.
Had a gutting day today tho: Gayle, Sehwag and Roach all non-starters and Sachin scored me all of 2.
James, I am not sure how the system failed to give me points for Yuvraj, SRT, Darren and Pollard?
Bat 3 Yuvraj Singh (IND) 0
Bat 4 Sachin Tendulkar (IND) 0
Bat 5 Kieron Pollard (WINDIES) 0
Bat 6 Darren Bravo (WINDIES) 0
Bowler 4 Ravichandran Ashwin (IND) 0
Benn got -10 though!
I had made changes well before the game!

Remember because games over-lap you have to make your changes before the 1st game of the day starts as per the message on the Modify Team page:
"This Competition is Open to Modifications but any Modifications made will count as Pending Changes. Please be aware that as mentioned on the FAQ, if there is more than one game in progress on a particular day, once changes turn to Pending (Red), any changes will apply at the conclusion of all matches in progress on that particular day."
