England / Re: English County Transfers 2017/18

Look at Rashid Khanís figures for Afg in his first test!

Itís all well and good taking wickets when batsmen are coming at you trying to score itís completely different having to earn your wickets!

Adil Rashid is a fantastic bowler when teams have to attack! When they donít he is bang average!

Going to be interesting to see who plays - Cook, Jennings, Root, Malan, Stokes, Bairstow, Buttler nailed on now for the top seven, so it'll be one spinner, Broad Anderson and a seamer.

Yep definitely those guys plus a spinner out of Leach, Bess or Ali.

Then a seamer out of Wood, Woakes or Sam Curran.

@Neon Cricket

can you all just finalise your availability for this game please, if you are all still available we have 11, if not, we will have to find someone else.

Unfortunately as only 4 or 5 gave me shirt sizes, that isn't going ahead as far as I'm aware.

Your Cricket / Re: Your 2018 Season

Everyone gets a bat, (almost) everyone gets a bowl. Batsmen aren't distracted by chasing personal milestones. The best overall team wins (rather than the team with a couple of in-form players).

Honestly, I've played in T20 leagues all over the country and have never come across one without some form of compulsory retirement, either at 25, 30 or 50. If you want to play for the joy of cricket and the thrill of working as a team to try and get the win, then its the perfect format. Obviously if you only play cricket for personal statistical glory then its probably not the format for you.

I'm actually a bowler so retirement is never likely to effect my batting, I'd actually count a season's average being in double figures as "statistical glory"...

As far as "playing for the joy of cricket and the thrill of working as a team to try and get the win" I'm always pleased for a teammate if they get a personal milestones, be it 5 wickets, a hattrick, 50 or a 100. If they do so in a winning efforts even better!

While this everyone gets a bat, retire on X amount of runs sounds great in theory, I can't help but think it's a result of today's everyone is entitled to something society. At the end of the day I prefer traditional cricket where the batsmen bat and the bowlers bowl, but that's just me

Looks a darned sight better than the dusty trenches I've played in in the last week or so!
