  3. I'm out of the loop on all things EWR - does anyone who still plays the game want to hook me up with some info?

  4. I agree with GoGo.

  5. Me and my housemate were in stitches when he bought the ring, especially as the bloke behind the counter lined up the money and then flicked through it all and still took it.
  6. Yes you have to keep Nixon .
  7. Finished my series against India yesterday, lost 2-0. First Test - Lost by 215 runs India scored a big total to start with, with Dravid tormenting me with 199 . We responded in OK fashion, scoring 385 with Bell getting a century and a couple of 50s, but it wasn't enough as I couldn't get India out again and Kumble tore through me on a turning pitch. Second Test - Match drawn Got put in on a very cloudy and overcast day with rain expected, so I just tried to bat out the difficult conditions. Made 288, Bell top scoring again with 91. They raped me again with the bat on an awesome batting pitch, 510 for 5 dec, Sehwag and Tendulkar smashing me all over the shop. Not a good debut for Broad either who went at 5 an over with no wicket. Our second innings showed what a good pitch it was, scoring 499 for 5 dec, Bell and Collingwood scoring 150* and 149 respectively, but with the rain delays it wasn't enough time to get anywhere near bowling them out. Third Test - Lost by 9 wickets. Won the toss, batted, thought fantastic, set a massive score and then we'll be laughing. Great start with Strauss and Vaughan putting on 190 for the first wicket, then we were 309 for 2 when Cook ran Vaughan out, but we collapsed from there to 472 all out. Had India 213 for 6, but a century from Yuvraj fucked us up. Then came the textbook England collapse - 74 all out. Flintoff was injured bowling so we only had 9 wickets to begin with, but Harbajan ran through us with 5-19 and left them an easy 174 to win. Verdict: Not enough bowling firepower.
  8. Bad like 9 to 5, I brought Panesar in as a nightwatchman in the hope that he'd make a 50 or something and he smashed 17 off 14 balls
  9. Screenshots is your call, although some more audacious claims may have to be backed up I'm not really going to set up a load of rules here, I just wanted to have some fun playing ICC
  10. Yeah, I think so especially as it's the first go. Just a quick note before the game begins - I've simmed through all of the 2006 season with most of the appropriate players. As some of you will know, if you sim a whole season on Normal you tend to get spanked so some of the averages might be a little lower than they were. Also, the World Cup came under the 2007 season, so I got us eliminated with a selection of shit players (although one of them score a 100 vs Canada on debut [take that Vaughan! >_>]), so it means to view your players' stats you can just do current and they'll be all your work. Any questions just post. We may as well use this thread for boasting and stuff. Here's the game: http://www.sendspace.com/file/p60ts9 Not sure which file you need so I zipped both of them. Just put them in the saves folder.
  11. I've uploaded the game now, I'll wait for a little longer to get some feedback on the constraints, see if anyone has some good ones to add in (I might play around with some of my own too). I'm also going to add in some mini competitions, which might lead to the winners getting some sort of advantage if we move into a second season. These are: Highest innings score in a Test Highest innings score in a ODI Lowest innings score against Lowest ODI score against Highest individual score in a Test Highest individual ODI score Best bowling in a Test (innings) Best bowling in a Test (match) Best bowling in an ODI Quickest 50 Quickest 100 Most runs in a series Most runs in the year Most wickets in a series Most wickets in a year Now the special awards First person to score an ODI 100 with Michael Vaughan Highest score by the 'next' Alistair Cook (debut only) Highest score with Monty Panesar Any suggestions about others?
  12. England 2007: Moore(s) Than You Bargained For The highs of the 2005 Ashes victory were long forgotten by the end of April 2007 as England's failure to do anything at all resembling good cricket in the World Cup left everyone with a sour taste in their mouth. After back to back victories over Australia in the Commonwealth Bank Series the hopes were high, but us English should know better than to be optimistic about anything. The media wanted a change and they got it when Duncan Fletcher stepped down as England coach and was replaced by Peter Moores, a man with no international pedigree but a very good resume nonetheless. He was charged with the difficult job of silencing the critics and finally giving England a One Day team that could achieve something. Your challenge for the season 2007/8 is to bring some respectability back to English cricket. With upcoming home series' against India and the West Indies and a difficult winter in Sri Lanka and New Zealand it will not prove easy... ...especially with the following constraints. Michael Vaughan MUST remain England captain and can only be dropped through injury. He must also open the batting in both forms of the game. Marcus Trescothick is back to full health and batting well again. However, he is still not trusting enough to leave his cheating wife for tours overseas. Do you offer him some cricket in the hope that he will eventually change his mind or do you drop him and form a new opening partnership? After his success in the Windies and his cult hero status amongst the media, Paul Nixon will remain England's first choice wicketkeeper. In the event of injury he may be replaced, but only with a keeper/batsman (someone who averages above 35 in first class cricket). Steve Harmison will remain retired from ODIs. In keeping with England's tradition of bringing in young fast bowlers your pace attack may be made up off the following: Matthew Hoggard, James Anderson, Steve Harmison (except ODIs), Liam Plunkett, Sajid Mahmood & Stuart Broad. If you wish to bring in anyone outside of these they must have either played less than 100 first class matches prior to the start of the season or be aged under 25. England have decided to continue their trial and error approach to One Day cricket, giving the odd chance to a random batsman/all-rounder. However, their short-sightedness has not changed. You may bring in any new player into the One Day setup, but the moment you drop them (that is they miss 3 games in a row, voluntarily), you may no longer select them. The next Alistair Cook - Can you find the next diamond in the rough? At some point over the 2007/8 season you must select a batsman with a maximum of 1 season's experience. He must play a minimum of 1 test. For your winter tour you must select either the leading English domestic run scorer or wicket taker. They must also play atleast 1 test. That's all I can think of right now. Anyone got any comments on these stipulations? I'm open to suggestions from people about additional ones also. There will also be special competitions for people (high scores and stuff). I'll post them after I've uploaded the saved game.
  13. I'll sim through the game later today and upload it somewhere so we all start from the same point (start of season 2007), then I'll post the constraints of the game and such. The first season will be centred around the Peter Moores appointment, so England.
