Have to agree with thebof on this one
KB for as long as I can, Bat tech to keep the tech up plus a little bit of fielding when that falls 3 levels behind

Whatever you need really. Plenty of spares and a wage that suggest bowling could be close to a pop

I would say it really comes down to what you really need.

Medium is by no means my favorite bowling type, but left arm helps a fair bit and with him having a new ball talents changes the entire perception.

His keeping on the other hand is too good to waste and fielding already requires hardly any attention at this point, plus he has a useful batting talent.

So you are very much in a position where you are looking at a 27k keeper or a 26k medium bowler.

I would probably go with keeper and give some attention to batting first to get it up more and then have him on keeper-bat further with some fielding and batting-tech as will be necessary.

If you are really unsure, put him on allrounder training and see what pops first between batting and bowling, then you probably have your answer.

EDIT: Just to add, if you do not have a good youth academy, maybe consider selling him to earn some really good money, otherwise his development will go wasted to a large extent. Also get in touch with desert7 to get his views.

Cheers all for the advice. YA is at Lavish, so could be better but my affiliate is basically homegrown (Well, it's West Indies only but the West Indian only transfer market is a bit barren), but good enough to keep him around.
Decided to go down the bowler route - wasting the keeping hurts a bit, but my team is in desperate need of half decent bowlers and the summaries point me to believe bowling is not that far off a pop.

Two guys I'm a little unsure on....

Add this player to your bookmarks Southern Squirrels >> 86. Rick Boer >> Details

Allrounder ordinary

Both seem more bowlers to me, but both are mediums which is slightly annoying. Boer has an opener talent that might make making him an AR valuable? Whereas Wagenaar is also potentially a nice keeper (but I already have a few good ones).

Thoughts?
