Yes! I just won the county championship in my Derbyshire save. It only took me 14 seasons but I took those bunch of scrubs from absolute trash to the best team in the country!

Unbelievable come back as well. After 8 games I was 2-2-4 sitting 3rd last, then suddenly all my batsmen went on a tear (bowlers were already doing well). Won the next 8 games in a row to storm home to first place.

I'm wondering now whether I should try for the triple crown in one season or start a new save (don't really like playing t20 or OD anyway). The game crashes fairly often now so I'm thinking my save file might be getting too big/corrupted so I'm tending towards a new save. Or maybe trying out ICC15 as it seems there's some good features added in that version.

Wow that's epic. Which county team did you do?
I've done it with several. The most successful triple crown was with Yorkshire, went 13-1-2 and 290-ish points, while only losing 1 T20 game and 2 OD games. Best one (in terms of taking a shit team and getting the treble) was with Gloucestershire, went 10-3-3 and lost 3 OD and T20 games.

Nice.

I remember back in ICC2004 or whatever I managed the triple crown with Derby but in that version, limited over comps were super easy to win. In 2014 I find them much harder to win (and play successfully) so I've mostly been simming them. Now my squad is a fair bit better maybe I try to actually play them.

Little off topic but anyone got the new Don Bradman game?

I've played it in the last week and all I can say it's like the developers took everything that made 14 good and removed it. The mechanics have gone backwards, the animation is arcade-y and most irritatingly so many bugs.

Going back to 14. Just when cricket looked like it was breaking ground into the console market.........:thumbsdown:

Everyone who plays international cricket is not experiencing the game to the maximum.

There is no doubt in my mind that playing with an English county side for years and years on end so that you build your own players from the ground up is the far superior way to play.
I haven't done this yet, any reason why it's better than playing Sheffield Shield with your state side?

Jake Lehmann is really good in this game. Takes a while to find his place but when he hits that 27 year old or so mark..

Hopefully it has Afghanistan and Ireland as test nations.
If the do, I hope they also include some kind of built-in schedule editor, so that we can give some of the lesser nations more frequent and longer series than they get in real life.

There's a fan-made one I've used in the past, but it's super-tedious to adjust it all and avoid clashes and overlaps between series.

I would imagine it would be too close to release for them to add it in this year. Shame, I'd definitely sink hours into trying to get one of those two up the rankings.
From Facebook on 27/06/2017:
There were some queries about Ireland and Afghanistan being playable as Test teams in Career mode, this was only announced five days ago, so not enough time for us to add them in to Cricket Captain 2017 and debug all aspects of International teams. There haven't been any announced Test fixtures for them yet and it's unlikely they'll play a Test match until 2018. Maybe a one-off for Ireland against England next year?

Love cricket captain, just a great game. Currently playing a career with England. Dawid Malan is an absolute gun on the game averages 65 in test cricket from 15 matches. In my other NSW domestic career Stephen O Keefe is a freak. Takes wickets consistently. Any players you guys have found to be good on the game?
