So i have been recruiting seam bowlers with my main and affiliate to try for a needed fast bowler.

Occasionally it says something like "your recruiters looked everywhere for a suitable player and eventually found *name*" Instead of the usual.
Does anyone know what this means?

Anyway, I got this guy. Pretty bad but I have space on the roster so i can train him a little to see where his spares are, or is this guy just a retire? That dreadful exp and power is a real deficiency though, but if he goes to avg Bowling and ordinary tech in his first few weeks it could be decent.

Also, I have been trying to pick up good Scotland youth in the transfer market. Picked up this 16.0 beauty for 11K, a steal i think.

My first thought was he is a fire, but fast is rare. Maybe give him three weeks on technique to see if he double pops with bowling, then fire if not? Not sure, he is an edge case, but pretty low out of the gates

For sure, I had the bidding agent set on 100k and would have been fine with that.

Very nice Casper, that wage! Gifted Fielding is still good in my eyes, he is a definite future NAT allstar.

I am still unsure on the value of finisher, but you will never have to train tech which is a huge plus.
