  1. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Not in proper cricket. :p

    You can change him to a top order batsman if you like but, like Thornely, it'll cost him some SA points. That he's opened a fair bit in one day cricket will definitely be taken into consideration but he's definitely not a specialist opener.
  2. Stormer BH Borisc

    If they bat at 3 they'd be considered top order right?

    like Sangakarra

  3. Eds E Ames

    Sachin Tendulkar - leg spin bowler
  4. AVA T Delonge

    Cribb, you said top order 1-3 and middle order 3 or below. Doesn't that mean 3 falls into both?
  5. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Yep, it sure does.
  6. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Depends if they're more likely to open or bat 4 and #3 fits into both. Sangakkara's in as middle order ATM.
  7. Stormer BH Borisc

    So no. 3 can be occupied by either without damage to points?
  8. Cribbage RG Cribb

    Yeah, my experience with ITC is that you can bat either what they call "openers" or what they call "specialists" without an issue. The key requirement of batting there seems to be actually being good - prank-batsmen tend to fail there more than anywhere else.

    Both those things mirror real life pretty well actually, IMO.
  9. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    So...How much is it gonna affect Thornely?
  10. Eds E Ames

    Ian Bell - middle order batsman
  11. Baxter MJ Deane

    Symonds - Medium bowler.
  12. nz0003 JR Denton

    Confirmed since we got Davies.
  13. Benny BS Read

    AB De Villiers = Middle Order WK Batsman.
  14. Ged GEC King

    James Hopes - middle order batsman or top order batsman
    Middle order for Hopesy thanks. I was looking for the best player of all time option though.
  15. Luffers JRE Luffman

    Rahul Dravid - top order batsman
    Fawad Alam - top order batsman
    Younis Khan - leg spin bowler
  16. CCG C Golding

    Jacques Rudolph - top order batsman please.

  17. Farny AP Farnsworth

    Pfft, you stole him off me and you can't even spell his name :(
  18. Boobidy BJ Gemmell

    And I've never seen Ponting bowl offies, TBH.
  19. Farny AP Farnsworth

    This doesn't happen to include relatively unproven young indians does it? >_<
    Tempted to bump Clarke up to 3, but as my best player, I really have to keep him at 4/5 where he's best.

    Also, I'm not going to bowl colly, so **** it, have him bowling his off cutters in the nets.

    I C&P it from the front page, meant to correct Cribbage but forgot, sorry fella!
