  • ODI, FC, T20, Test Tactics

    So there really isn't one resource for this, but can anyone recommend briefly what to do for these 4 different modes? Not necessarily in detail, but atleast something to work from. I'm not even considering tweaked field settings even though apparently those make a big difference too.

    Are you the same Jadax who asked this question on the Steam forums more than 6 months ago? All the forums are pretty dead. You might get a little more luck in the Cricket Captain 2019 forum, as that's the latest version (and the tactics will be mostly the same).

    There are some good guides on Steam, written by Sureshot (who, as far as I understand, works for Childish Things, or at least has been very closely affiliated with them for a very long time):
    Cricket Captain 2018 - Cricket Captain returns for 2018 with an updated match engine, extensive additions to the records and statistics (including stats of every historical international player), Ireland & Afghanistan as playable test nations, improved internet game, improved coaching, and much more. Put your tactical expertise to the test in the number one cricket management game.Developed in association with Jimmy Anderson, Cricket Captain 2018 also features a full database update (over 6500 players), with improved player generation, and greater accuracy in limited over player abilities. The latest changes to all domestic structures have been included.Cricket Captain is unrivalled in cricket management simulation, and Cricket Captain 2018 improves the series once again with all the attention to detail that is the trademark of the series.Key features for 2018 include: Updates to all domestic systems and 20 over leagues: play updated domestic leagues in India, England, Australia, West Indies, Pakistan, South Africa, Bangladesh, and New Zealand. Afghanistan & Ireland career modes: play as one of the two newest test nations in full international career modes. New captaincy offers: receive offers from other teams within your domestic system in your current save. All time-greats: full career records for every player that has ever played international cricket, all playable in historical scenarios. International/domestic ground records: individual, team, and partnership records for over 130 grounds, now split into international and domestic for First Class, One Day and 20 over. Competition/series records: historical competition and series player records for the last two competitions/series. International vs. records: individual, team, and partnership records for all 12 test-playing nations in Test Match, ODI and International 20 Over.

Historical scenarios: replay five historical scenarios for India or Pakistan in England. International only mode: includes domestic fixtures. New database: full database update with over 6500 players, including improved player generation for limited over ability. Updated tournament modes: including the new OD World Cup format. Improved match engine: with updates to aggressive batting in OD matches and batting reaction to field settings. New coaching options: including opener training, OD bowler technique training and separate fielding coaching. Added player stats: preferred batting position, percentage of 4s and 6s scored; career S/R for all-time great players; maidens bowled. New achievements: including Ireland and Afghanistan achievements. Internet game: improved reliability and more teams to play on-line.

    Over the years, it has occasionally been possible to find bits and pieces written by Chris Child (the main developer of the game) himself. For example, some old tips for ICC/ICC2 can be found here (note that some of these tips are still good, some will be a bit dated):

    In the old days (before Steam), the game used to come with a paper booklet with basic instructions and hints. I couldn't find the one for 2018, but this 2015 version probably covers most stuff. The tips are in Chapter 5 (page 27):

    You may notice that many of the tips in the 2015 manual are the same as Chris Child's tips from the original ICC (1998). That makes sense, since the basic game of cricket is still the same too :)
