    If result is unlucky then what is the point of match still going on in FC and Test? There should be done something for this to make FC Test cricket more interesting. if a team came out for last 2 overs and 200 required on last day it's looks very unrealistic these days. Whenever I start FC career and just think about it loses my interest, Hope you people think about it.

    Abdullah Shafiq and Mohammad Huraira need their abilities nerfed, both are too good in the game.

    Nerfed Huraira, I'm going to leave Shafiq as he's done well in Tests so far.

    I think Roman Walker could have his batting improved a bit. Cymru confirmed he's a bowling all rounder after an excellent 50 on debut and average of 90 for the seconds. Perhaps he should be a bowler who is a very useful bat on the cusp of all rounder.

    Ed Barnes seems bang on with the bat however his bowling may need a tiny nudge. In game ive seen the AI pick him 7 CC games in a row at 7 and only bowl him for 2 overs. I don't think he's a great bowler and Leicestershire have a poor attack but I don't think he's worse than Walker or Davis. I'd rank their bowlers in 4 day:

    Wright - Still good.
    Parkinson - good.
    Mulder - Underperforming but as a test bowler clearly not awful.
    Mike - Hideously inconsistent and sometimes frighteningl expensive but improving all the time.

    A big gap.

    Ackermann - Mostly white ball but capable.
    Ahmed - Unknown quantity but great in white ball.
    Steel - White ball only really.
    Davis/Walker/Barnes - Much of a muchness and not great but at least recognisable as bowlers. Would probably put Scriven in here too, been injured but when fit good for seconds. All these guys should average 35-40 in my opinion with Walker and Scriven perhaps having potential to creep down to 30-35. I actually think Barnes may be a better bat than he is a bowler.
    Griffiths/A.Evans - Terrible
    Hendricks - Awful this season, genuinly awful.
    Bowley - Unknown, is ok for seconds.

    Matt Fisher seems underrated on the game, averaging 27.5 with the ball in real life in First Class cricket and has played Test cricket but has averaged around 40 three years into my save and is never selected in my first team by AI at the start of the season

    I feel his ability is fair currently.

    Looks to be playing in my saves. His ability is fair, he's had a tough couple of years, slightly better this year, but still not really setting strong data to push for a boost.

    If we know competition format, yes. I'm keen to update it, but we have to know what to update it with. There's been some news on this recently, hopefully we will know in the near future.

    I play alongside Morgan for Waringstown CC and he is a good friend. He is a batsman and very much part-time spinner, recently has started to open the innings in the shorter formats to get into the Knights
    Thanks, I've changed him to opener in OD/20 over and middle order in FC.

    If we know the formats exactly, then we might be able to. Sometimes the formats aren't always obvious until the season actually starts, this is why the Ind 20 over league is in 2 groups (will be in 1 group in next patch), as when we set that up the resources were suggesting they would be as 2 groups.

    The aim is to get the next update out in time for the start of the 100.

    Aaron Finch has retired from FC's. I can link the article if I'm allowed to? Found it and retired him from FC/Test.
    Cameron Gannon should be down as Australian, still plays domestically. Changed
    James Pattinson should be down as retired from all international cricket. Done

    Harry Came, Tom Wood, Alex Thomson & George Scrimshaw have 2 year contracts until the end of 2023 rather than a 1 year deal
    Tom Wood is unavailable and should be down as such until at least the start of August if not the whole season.
    Ben Aitchison signed a contract extension until the end of 2024 back in March but is currently down as on a 1 year deal
    Michael Cohen has been injured all season so far and should be down as such.
    Liam Trevaskis has a 2 year deal rather than a 1 year deal
    Jack Campbell was released by Durham the other month
    Mark Wood should be down as injured for the whole season, and possibly past the T20 WC too He is for the next update.
    Eddie Byrom bowls legspin now
    Joe Cooke should be batting in the middle order in limited overs cricket Changed to FC/OD only opener (can't do just FC opener.
    Glenn Phillips doesn't open in T20s and he should be bowling a lot more then he currently does. Changed
    Mohammad Abbas & Ben Brown needs a significant nerf in selection in the white ball formats for Hampshire, especially T20s
    Luke Wells should be an allrounder and shouldn't open in T20s either. Changed to FC/OD opener all rounder.
    George Bell bowls legspin, he bowled a little in the U19 World Cup. Changed
    Sam Evans bowls right arm offspin. Changed
    Josh de Caires bowls right arm offspin & should either be a batting all-rounder or bowl a lot more than he currently does as a semi-regular bowler. Changed to OB.
    Pieter Malan should be unavailable in the game until July as his visa was only sorted out recently
    Joe Cracknell should be a pure batsman or an occasional keeper at best, he doesn't keep regularly at club level and I don't believe has ever done so at any Middlesex level.He kept when Simpson was with England.
    Mujeeb Ur Rahman should be removed from Middlesex as he was unable to play for them due to a visa issue.
    Blake Cullen should be down as injured in CC22 as he's unlikely to be fit until late August and has played very few games where he would usually be a regular. Should also be a RMF rather than a RFM. Changed to RMF.
    Rob Keogh should be an allrounder, this season so far he's bowled the 2nd most overs for Northants in the Championship (216) & has got the 2nd most wickets with 20 at an average of 29.65 with an economy of 2.75 to go with it and a decent strike rate of 64.6 Changed
    Haseeb Hameed doesn't open in T20s and bats at 3 in the 2nd XI Now only FC/OD opener.
    Steven Mullaney hasn't opened in years Spent most of his career opening in FC, changed to FC/OD only opener all rounder.
    Fateh Singh should be an allrounder Mostly batted at 9/10 for the U19s, will leave as bowler for now.
    Sonny Baker should be down as injured in the game, he's still injured having not recovered from the back injury that caused him to miss the U19 World Cup. He'll have a season long injury in game for next update.
    Ben Geddes should be average aggression in FC's and either average aggression or aggressive in limited overs, he's just taken some time to adjust but his List A strike rate and his 51 strike rate during his century against Kent is more like him.
    Tom Curran isn't injured in-game but should be until at least July, as he is being eased back from a back injury, playing his first 2 games of the season in the T20s batting at 3 and not bowling, scoring 36 in the Quarter Final vs Yorkshire.
    Ali Orr should be an opener in all 3 formats and should be changed to defensive in FC's and average aggression if not higher in the limited overs.
    George Garton should be out until the T20s start as he has been suffering with the effects of long covid.
    Jack Carson has been out injured all season so far with a injury (back if I remembered correctly)
    Ollie Robinson should be marked down as injured until at least August as he has only played 3 games this season and barely bowling in that due to a variety of injury & fitness issues.
    Chris Woakes should be down as injured for much longer than 10 weeks. He should also be a much better bowler average & economy wise in limited overs cricket, especially ODIs where he tends to be quite expensive in both.
    Ben Cox should be the regular keeper (one of the best in the country) and in the XI over Roderick in all formats. Roderick is nowhere near as important as Cox is to Worcestershire.
    I believe Moeen Ali & Adil Rashid should still be retired from FC's (but not tests, in the same way Rashid was in previous editions) as they aren't playing red ball cricket and are on white ball only deals.
    Harry Duke should be the regular keeper for Yorkshire not Tattersall. Duke is very underrated in both batting & keeping in game whilst Tattersall is very overrated. Ben Birkhead (3rd choice if not lower) is missing also, he's still on their player profiles page on their website.
    Tom Loten should be an allrounder & possibly James Wharton too.
    Gary Ballance should be unavailable for much longer in CC22, until August at least, as he currently comes back too soon in the game. Been playing some 2nd XI recently.

    Ambati Rayudu is joining Baroda, and is expected to play Ranji Trophy as well so should be unretired from the format. Done
    Deepak Chahar should be out injured until mid August. He hasn't played a game this year but is aiming to make the tour to Zimbabwe.
    Smit Patel is still down as Indian when he should be American in CC22
    Wriddhiman Saha has joined Tripura for this season, as he has left Bengal after a falling out with them, and he has received his NOC to allow him to move teams. Changed

    Shahid Afridi retired back in Feb
    Hammad Azam left last year for the USA
    Mohammad Hafeez retired from T20Is at the start of the year.
    Usman Shinwari (1/1/02 Northern) is the same player as the Usman Shinwari (1/5/94) who is down with KPK but should be with Northern. Shinwari should also be retired from FC's & Tests as he retired back in November to try and prolong his career

    Dean Foxcroft shouldn't be a free agent and should be with Otago, he has got his contract back as he will be able to come back into the country.
    Michael Rippon's nationality should be New Zealand now after being called up into their squad as he is now able to travel out of the country after being unable to for a while (same reason as why Foxcroft wasn't able to come in).
    Will Williams should be changed to English nationality as he has signed a 3 year deal with Lancashire as a local player due to his British passport.

    Kamil Mishara will possibly be banned for one year by SLC but I'm not sure if it's actually been confirmed yet or not, but he hasn't been in any squad since being sent home mid-tour.
    Kusal Perera is out with a shoulder injury and could miss the World Cup Added his injury, seems ot have been injured for ages.
    Ahan Wickramsinghe's batting is quite underrated in FC's & LA's

    Tarisai Musukanda should be down as unavailable for the whole 2022/23 season as he was arrested on culpable homicide charges. I don't know anything about how Zimbabwe's case is but I think it's fair to rule him out for most of the season. He played matches after being charged.

    Shakib Al Hasan is now the Test captain
    Shahadat Hossain (former international bowler) is missing, he played in June 2021 He's retired.

    William Porterfield & Peter Chase retired from all cricket not just international cricket.
    Rory Anders retired from interpro cricket back in May, a few days after playing his last game. There wasn't much mention of it really, just a brief mention in a newspaper article. I can dig it up if you need proof.
    Will Smale should be back in the database, currently playing 2nd XI cricket & at uni in England/Wales. He should also be average aggression in red ball cricket

    I think some captains may need updating, such as Haines for Sussex & Parkinson for Leicestershire in FC's, amongst others I've forgotten about. Some captains such as Parkinson aren't even selected as regulars in the side their captaining
    Also quite a lot of players from countries such as Sri Lanka and Afghanistan aren't playing any domestic games if they're not with a club.

    Hopefully we bring the DRS into play shortly. Will add another realistic feature to the game. It’s a must add in my opinion

    Tim Murtagh is very underrated as a bowler in the game. In my saves he tends to go at a 30+ average in FC's at over a 3 an over & 40 in List A's at a 5-5.50 economy rate when his average & economy rates should be far far lower than that. Him and Jimmy Anderson are very underrated with the ball & should be lethal in terms of averages (should be arguably in the teens, probably low to mid teens) & should have very low economies, as both have been getting even better over the past decade as they've aged which hasn't been fully reflected yet in their career averages & economies, and definitely hasn't in cricket captain. He's also a little underrated with the bat. He should also be very aggressive in FC's rather than average aggression.
    David O'Halloran hasn't played so far this season due to injury. His bowling is also very underrated
    Mikey O'Reilly is hugely underrated. He goes at over 40 in FC & LAs & over 30 in T20s despite having a brilliant start in real life. He should also be a RHB rather than a LHB & he should also be ginger in-game. Changed.
    William Porterfield has retired from all cricket and has now moved into coaching
    Stuart Poynter should be retired as he is settled in England and is now coaching & playing for Northumberland in the Minor Counties
    Jacob Mulder, David Rankin & Eddie Richardson, Greg Thompson should possibly be retired, haven't played interpros nor been in any squads for quite a long while now, and all seem unlikely to return again
    Carl Robinson's birth year should be changed from 2001 to 1997 as he was in Zimbabwe's U19 WC 2016 wider squad and he was described as a 19 year old in late December 2016. He's also quite a bit overrated in the game and is ahead of the pecking order and rated higher ahead of the likes of Hoey, Humphreys, White etc Changed to 1997 birth year.
    Neil Rock's batting is very underrated, he's had a tougher time adjusting to internationals but still has the talent to breakthrough in it, like Tucker has finally done. He currently doesn't play any internationals in my saves.
    Muzamil Sherzad is hugely underrated. In all of my saves he averages 35+ (usually 35-45 with the ball) in all 3 formats, and in half of those saves he will be very expensive economy wise (well over 4, 6 and 10 an over in FC's, LA's and T20s respectively) whilst he has been quite economical in real life.
    Paul Stirling is hugely underrated. He averages below 20 in T20s & in the 10s in T20Is for some reason, and never bowls either. He also tends to average in the mid 20s in ODIs
    Harry Tector is underrated with the bat, he's one of Ireland's best batsmen, yet only averages around 30 in ODIs & in the low 20s in T20Is despite being a much better player than that as his stats showcase. He should also be changed to average aggression in FC's as in 2019 he scored at a strike rate of 57.10 whilst at the time still only 19. His bowling economy rates needs significant lowering as well, with his 50 over economy being somewhere between 5.55 to 5.80 (in real life it's 5.46 & this season 4.00) and in T20s is between 8.36 & 8.63 (whilst in real life it's only 7.28)
    Tim Tector should be an attacking bat. He's been showcasing it this season with a strike rate of 135.29 in T20s this season which is more of the player he is. His batting position should be changed to an opener in 50 overs & to batting at 3 in T20s, which he has done both for Leinster this season. [He's a player of high potential in my opinion and averaged 35.11 for Ireland U19s which helps solidify that belief.
    Mitchell Thompson should be an allrounder Now an all rounder.
    Stuart Thompson should possibly be retired. He's had a lot of jobs outside of cricket now including as a physio with Northern Ireland's football team. If he's not retired then he should be boosted in his red ball bowling as I believe he is very underrated in that format and possibly his batting as well. If he's not to be retired then he should possibly be changed to aggressive in FC's, with a 60+ strike rate in red ball cricket for NWW.
    Morgan Topping's batting is quite underrated
    Ben White is very underrated, particularly in T20s where he should be best in
    Jared Wilson should be a RHB RFM & should still bowl occasionally in-game. Changed
    Craig Young is hugely underrated, one of Ireland's best bowlers but in the game he averages well over 60 at almost 4 an over in tests & in the mid 30s in ODIs usually at well over 5 an over (quite a few saves 6+) & T20Is can be expensive too in some saves. Should be regularly a good consistent bowler
    Jack Dickson should be added. He's been in a few squads this season although hasn't played yet, doing well in the pre-season games as well as for Ireland U19s so has a good future ahead of him.
    Will Smale should be added. He's at uni in England and currently playing 2nd XI cricket there (where he also qualifies as a local player having been born in Wales).
    Aditya Adey & Gavin Roulston should be added, with both being in squads this season but not making the XI (Roulston in many of them). Adey is a allrounder (RHB RFM) born in either 1998 or late 1997, and Roulston is a opening batting all-rounder (RHB RM) who is a 15 year old (should be put down as 01/01/2007 for now). He opened the batting in the warmup game for NWW and top scored with 45 off 61 balls with 2 fours and 3 sixes. He is economical in T20s but not really in the other formats.
    It's just little things but Barry McCarthy and Harry & Jack Tector should all have blonde hair, and Ross Adair should have light brown hair and a beard. Changed

    Victor Chirwa should be added to Zimbabwe's database. He played in a T20 for Mid West Rhinos the other day against Jersey & scored 21 off 17 as well as taking 1-18. In U19 ODIs he has a strike rate of 139.39 & a economy of 4.17 to go with an average of 15.41. So definitely one for the future who can chip in with both ball & bat.

    Tom Bevan should be a opener (in limited overs cricket at least) Can't find him in the DB.
    Sam Pearce should be a free agent Released from Glamorgan.
    Will Williams should be British now and should also be average aggression in limited overs cricket.
    Chris Jordan is very underrated in T20s and should be a regular in T20Is but currently doesn't play any internationals.
    Oskar Kolk & Steven Reingold should be added as free agents. Reingold playing for Glamorgan last year, and Kolk in Zimbabwe

    Arzan Nagwaswalla should be a LFM
    Rasikh Salam's birth year should be 2000 instead of 2001 (due to the age fudging scandal a few years back). He's also a RHB RFM rather than a LHB LM.
    Changkam Sangma should be a RFM and Dippu Sangma should be a RMF

    Changed all the above.

    Nick Greenwood is missing. He plays for Jersey internationally and domestically for Wellington after coming through the Lancashire & Wellington Academies simultaneously. He bats at 3 in FC's and is a white ball opener who bowls a little bit.

    Mohammad Hafeez retired from T20Is in January. He also shouldn't be a opener and instead should be batting in the top order. Retired from 20 over int, he will be staying as an opener as that is what he has done for 90% of his career.

    Rohitha Rajapaksha should be a RHB & should also be the worst player by far in the game (including worse than any bowlers who are tailenders). He hadn't played any cricket since he was a youth and only played for lets just say political reasons, which is why he ended up playing 3 games and only averaging 1.66, including a golden duck on debut. He should still be in the game but should definitely be the worst out of any player in CC22. Changed to RHB.

    Shian Brathwaite should be changed to defensive or average aggression as in the T20 he played vs England, he scored at a strike rate of 137.50 for his 22 runs, and his List A stats are all from when he was 17.
    Stefon King played against England and Leniko Boucher was also named in the squad - didn't play but in the squad of 14 - but both are missing from CC22 This was not classed as a professional match.
    Kymani Wilson (wicketkeeper) needs to be added. Played for Jamaica vs Ireland. I found some details on advancecricket that have him down as born on the 13th of December 1999 and a RHB RM (as well as wicketkeeper which is his main role) which backs up with the other details I found on other sites such as linkedin and youtube

    Javed Ahmadi should be retired as he is now a refugee in Australia and Mohibullah Paak Oryakhel should be retired as he has settled in England in the past few years, scoring a century for Indian Gymkhana this week.

    Retired both.

    Dimuth Sandaruwan is Sri Lankan but is down as an Afghanistan player. Fixed

    Liam Roche should have his nationality changed to New Zealand as he left Zimbabwe in 2018 and has been playing in the Premier Division in New Zealand for his club, doing quite well I'm led to believe. And I don't know if he's in contention for the A teams but I think he would be qualified as a local player by now having been over 3 years since he left. Changed
