Your assistant coaches have been busy interviewing your squad members and doing research, and they all have reports for you. I'll post them in this thread one by one, but first here's a breakdown of what's on these tables. ID: Cricinfo ID. Player: Player's name. Batting: Batting handeness - left/right. Bowling: Bowling style. Some of the bowling speeds may seem harsh as such, but they're like that to give more accurate simming as this entry interacts with the pitch conditions. For example, Vernon Philander and Dwaine Pretorius operate at a similar pace, but Vern is here as "right-arm medium" because he is pretty much exclusively assisted by pitches with seam movement in them, whereas Pretorius is also assisted by bounce/carry. Faster bowling styles aren't better than slower ones; they just get different assistance and penalties at different times. It's also worth noting that some bowlers are listed as "(P)" - this means they're part-timers and have collected their statistics bowling well less than a full workload. If you use them as full-time bowlers when you name your lineups, they will cop a penalty for this (no penalty if you name them as part-timers). P Pos / S Pos: Primary batting positions and secondary batting positions. Players will bat best in their primary positions, and cop a small penalty for batting in their secondary positions. Any positions that aren't listed at all will cop a larger penalty and should probably be avoided. Keeping: Keeping ability and keeping frequency are different attributes. A player can be a regular keeper but also crap at it, or a part-time keeper but also good. Part-time keepers will suffer a penalty to their *batting* ability when you make them keep as you're making them take on a load they're not used to. The penalty will vary depending on exactly how part-time they are. BwlPref: Bowling preference - left/right. Whether your player prefers bowling to left handers or right handers. BatPref: Batting preference - pace/spin. Whether your player prefers batting against pace or spin. Batting Strength: Your player's favourite type of bowling to face from four loose categories. Batting Weakness: Your player's least favourite type of bowling to face from four loose categories.
