My batsmen are pretty rubbish. This season in SOD none of my current batsmen average more than 30. I have one batsman (world class summary) whose SOD career average is 24.39. My bowlers are alright but generally too old or young for me to really consider them a real strength. I've got a good allrounder but just the one of them so I can't say that's a strength especially as he tends to tour so I have to do without him every now and again. Tactically, I don't change much from game to game apart from moving the batting line-up around in the desperate hope that things will one day click. I don't cheat.

But, despite all that, my side are in the top 3 in Eng SOD 1.1, top 2 in T20 1.1, and top in YOD 1.1 (although we actually rate quite well in that). Therefore, I have to conclude my strength is purely luck. If the luck ever runs out I expect my team to plummet to division 3 or worse.

When I win my opponents don’t forget to remind me how lucky I was. I don’t necessarily disagree. :lol:

Joking aside, FTP being a bowlers game I was expecting a lot more people would say bowling. I am surprised by the low tally there.

Agree with smid Ihat the balance of player selection, match order and luck wins me a game. Player selection is the most important factor.

Genuinely don't know what to put... so I went for cheating (with all the in game mod powers people seem to think I have) to see what everyone else went for!

Put bowling for our main team because currently my homegrown teams bowling is far stronger than batting, luck of the draw being homegrown I suppose despite trying to keep a balanced squad!

To be fair we did have a very balanced squad until recently and our affiliate is balanced currently.

Having a few Keys bowlers imo is probably the most important part of the game. Those keys bowlers normally being match winners(Fasties or WSers). But also having a team of bowlers who have certain roles etc

I think it's how you use what you have. So tactics.
There is no substitute for experience. Though luck can help - just ask Bongo.

My affiliate I've gone for all rounders, but it may have been a bad call :lol:

My gameplay depends on bowlers. Never bought any exceptional batting summary allrounder or trained one till now.
