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.Wow that's epic. Which county team did you do?

I haven't done this yet, any reason why it's better than playing Sheffield Shield with your state side?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.
Cricket Captain 2017 will release on Steam on Thursday July 6th.
Coming to Mac and Mobile soon after this.
New features for CC2017 to be announced soon!
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.
I like the expanded domestic options a lotComing 6th July to Steam, iOS*, Mac* and Android.

From Facebook on 27/06/2017: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.
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?
