kinda tempted to grab icc17 for Android...
I find no matter how big a target you set them to chase on day 5... they will chase it down 90% of the time.Can't remember if I have ever played an edition of this where 4 games didn't come down to one side declaring 220 ahead at tea on the last day hoping to fluke bowling the oppo out

shit once i set them like 450 to win, declared with a session left on day 4.. they chased it down, losing like 4 wickets along the way smh
LMAOOOO spot on really...
I reckon 90% of games are
Me - bat first 3/190 - all out 260 early Day 2
Them - 6/120 - all out 350-400 lunch Day 3
Me - 4/280 halfway through Day 4 working out the risk/return ratio of declaring
Then - if i leave it to late I'll have them like 5/60, but if I go too early they'll win losing 1 wicket
well playedSo I just had a weird bug in the game. Playing in the West Indies domestic league. 2021 season and I have the minimum 18 players on my list. I had 13 of the 18 selected into a test squAd and couldn't advance the game. Only 4 of the players were contracted by the national team so it made it impossible to sign any new players as they were all worth around 90k each. I've quit the game and it takes me back into the menu before selecting the team, the same amount of guys are always picked. It's a shame as it's been the best WI domestic I've done
Decent gameplay, costs in the respective leagues are still way too high, still have unrealistic chases.Has anyone here played the 2018 version? Keen to hear some thoughts on it. It has been a while since I have played any cricket management games but I have been looking for one lately.
This update is terrible. Aggressive players for the opposition get 100 off 130 and ones for the user get 30 off 20. And defensive players are useless.anyone else still playing this? Need some tips on how not to go for 5+ and over in a test match. It’s ridiculous. Pant from India in a 4 game series just scored 900+ runs with a strike rate of 88. Im nearly over it.
Tom Triffitt lol. I had nearly forgotten about himI'm cheap and haven't bought a version since 2013 (plus my computer is a PoS), which I still play from time to time (usually when I'm bored, or remember I actually have the game). Anyways, as Australia, I've gone with Tom Triffitt as my wicket keeper, and in 11 matches (admittedly, only 12 innings, 4 of which have been not outs), he's averaging 56 with the bat. But the bigger shock is Jon Holland having 202 test wickets at an average of just under 17.
EDIT: As I was typing this, my PC crashed (Like I said, it's a PoS).. and got an unrecognised format upon trying to resume the game..
