    How about a four team - Leinster, Connaught, Munster, Ulster - Irish option?
    That would be fun, I hope they can implement it in a later patch, if not now.

      Hi all, I was looking at Trevfromsussex&Oz`s post, regarding more ATG`s, and decided to put forward a few names for consideration. In his post, he mentioned having more South African players from the banned apartheid era, in my opinion, the game probably has already got the best of those players, but perhaps, T.N. Lazard &
      P.G. Amm, who were selected for the S.A. Invitation XI, and N.T. Day, twice S.A. cricketer of the year 1981 & 1985, would be useful additions.
      I then looked at S.A. cricketers who were selected for tours, been named as a S.A. cricketer of the year, and those selected for a S.A XI. In this group I found 8 worthy of consideration. 1) E.B. Norton. 2) G.A.S. Innes. 3) J.H. Ferrandi. 4) P.M. Dodds. 5) B.J. Versfeld. 6) K.L. Gibbs. 7) G.F, Dakin. 8) A.R. Hector.
      My next thought was players from Australia, England, India & the West Indies, and all the players I`ve chosen were selected for tours, but never played a Test match.
      In this group there are 14, from Australia 1) J. Drennan. 2) I.W. Quick. 3) S.C. Trimble. England 1) K.G.Suttle. 2) J.V. Wilson. 3) P.J. Sainsbury. 4) H.W. Stephenson.
      5) B. Taylor. India 1) S.N. Mohol. 2) D.D. Govindraj. West Indies 1) R.C. Brancker. 2) R.A. Cohen. 3) P.D. Blair. 4) P.R. Roberts.
      That my friends is a total of 25 ATG`s for you all to look at and consider. I for one believe that more ATG`s enhances the game for those who enjoy playing Historic / Fantasy series.

        Springbok your right, just as I posted its the SABOC or if you like the best Non-White SA players I'd like to see. B Versfield from memory was Barry Richards (best batsman I've seen) opening partner. Drennan & Quick had short careers while Trimble snr was a one-time Shield batting aggregate record holder and Captained Australia B in NZ 1969-70, his son also was a near-miss. Suttle played over 400 games in succession for Sussex, B Taylor if you mean the Essex one was a long-time captain. Govindraj was unlucky in that his career coincided with that of the Great Indian spin attack.

            Has the ridiculous number of retired hurts been addressed in this version? If it can't be reduced to a more realistic level then it should just be removed or at least being able to select a concussion replacement like real life. Nothing more frustrating than one of your bowlers retiring hurt on Day 1 and then you are a bowler down

              Thank-you Trevfromsusses&Oz, it`s nice to receive some notice, when you post some suggestions. Your comments are much appreciated, and I would just like to give my reasons for some of the players I`ve mentioned. India, as you stated, had plenty of spinners, so Govindraj & Mohol are just giving a bigger pace option.
              The 4 West Indians are all bowlers. These played when the W.I. bowling attack was dominated by Hall, Griffith, Sobers, Gibbs & Holford, once again, just giving a bigger bowling option. The 8 South Africans are basically to make up for S.A. lack of international cricket , pre apartheid ban when only played Australia, England & New Zealand. Finally the 5 English players, H.W. Stephenson & B. Taylor were wicket keepers in an era dominated by either Godfrey Evans or Jim Parks, I just like having more players to select from, this applies to the other 3, 2 batsman, 1 allrounder, again in an era dominated by May, Graveney, Bailey, Cowdrey, Barrington, Dexter & MJK Smith.
              I have tried to contact you before, as I have a South African Cricket Almanack, an Official publication of S.A.C.B.O.C. 1969 First Edition, and it`s yours if you want it.

                Like Josh Davey today for Somerset? Maybe not that ridiculous then.

                        Hi Springbok and apologies to you and Hallmitchell. I was in indirect contact with Kris Reddy who is the "go to" man for the SABOC era just before Christmas when I got banned by Facebook. Kris is not on the Internet and I don't have a local Afrikaans translator, with my contact we were hoping to get the full scores published. It might be possible for Andrew Samson from SA Cricket if you can contact him to restart the process. As I said I ran into a communication problem. Hang onto the Almanack its part of SA history there were later ones published until around 1990. I had one from about 1975 or a bit later.
