  • The 2021 Series between Zimbabwe & Bangladesh is only 1 Test not 2 & the 2022 series between the same 2 teams is 5 ODI not 3 & also no tests in that series.Also can you please include the T20 series between Scotland & Zimbabwe after the Ireland tour in the next update please


    • Sureshot few things I think need changing. For Somerset Sonny Baker is currently a RM on the game, he should be a RMF in my opinion but definitely faster than a RM.
      Tom Lammonby should have aggression upgraded. Has smashed it in T20 this season (career SR of 156) and just hit a run a ball hundred in FC so should be Agg instead of Avg
      Eddie Byrom has now signed for Glamorgan (also don't think he should be V.Agg I would say more Avg, he had one year in t20 where he smashed it but is usually quite a defensive opener in FC).
      Smeed and Hildreth should have opener in T20, Smeed opened the batting in the hundred every game and Hildreth has opened for Somerset in T20 all season
      Moeen Ali and Livingstone both seem to be undervalued on the game, in real life they are probably 2 of the best white ball bats in the world at the moment yet don't seem to be any good in the game.


      • Please increase AB de Villiers’s in-game abilities. He’s no-where close to his real life level of skill. nerfed him so much. This has been the story of AB de Villiers in every version of this game. He is awful in game. Can’t bat against spinners. He’s one of the greatest batsman of the modern era. He’s still delivering runs at a great strike rate in t20s even after retiring from the international cricket. Please improve his batting in game.Sureshot

        • Sam Whiteman is no longer a Keeper. Since he wrecked his hand/finger he isn't allowed to keep anymore.

          • shahnawaz dhani needs high bowling rating.
            When is the next database change getting released?

              George Scrimshaw doesn't seem economical enough in t20s, his economy was below 8 this season but in game he's playing but going at above 9 an over.

              Billy Godleman is opening in t20s, Reece should be doing this in his stead.

              Logan van Beek could have his t20 economy nobbled, terrible in real life but sub 8 in game.

              Felix Organ seems a bit overrated with the bat.

              Tom Price could have his bowling improved, no hoper in game but bowled fantastically against Northants this week, looks a real prospect. 12 wickets in 4 games at 25 suggests he has a future.

              Rahem Ahmed at Leicestershire should be an all rounder. Should have huge potential too, even got a callup for the friendly with India this season.

              Ed Barnes should be about as good a batter as a bowler can be without being an all rounder, he has batted really, really well this season with two class 50s. His bowling should be level with Will Davis too in my opinion, the two along with Wright and Parkinson are the only County level bowlers at the club.

              On that note Calum Parkinson is playing very well indeed in all formats and could have a further upgrade.

              Aaron Lilley is playing first class in game, he's on a white ball only contract in real life so I'd recommend he be retired from first class in game. He's frankly poor in anything other than a pinch hitting role so won't play first class again.

              Ali Orr, Ollie Carter and Daniel Ibrahim should all be improved with the bat.

              Will Smeed seems worse than before, averaging less than 20 and requesting a drop in salary at the end of the first season.

              Harry Brook has been a bit rubbish in my game so could be improved more, England player of the future.

              Dillon Pennington is underrated with the ball.

              Scott Currie could be improved a fair bit.

              Blake Cullen still seems underrated. I'm not seeing him play any t20 games.

              Gilchrist still not playing for Kent in game, bowling very well in real life.

              I think George Hill is still underrated too, already a solid county player and an ex England under 19. Doesn't seem to come good in game.

              Two tons and four fifties for Robbie White at Middlesex this season and playing as a specialist bat all season, generous increase due?

              Michael Jones at Durham could have a batting boost, couple nice 50s this season and looks to be cementing a place in and around the first XI.

              Craig Miles and Liam Norwell seem a bit underpowered, neither play in game but both are good bowlers in real life.

              Lewis Hill with his fourth and fifth tons of the season (3 first class, 2 list A). He's a man transformed since handing the gloves off to Swindells and should be Leicestershire's best bat other than Harris and Inglis.
              Sureshot I agree with this assessment with a few more additions…

              Tom Haines - pitiful in game, highest run scorer in County Champ this year and made big strides this year.

              Rob Yates - 5 hundreds this year, needs significant improvement

              George Balderson - should be RFM bowls consistently around 78mph, Needs a little bump to both curren ability and potential. Should be an FC opener. Likely to be batting all rounder according to bumble.

              Blatherwick - small bump as never gets selected

              Ed Barnard - batting should be improved slightly in line with his improvements this season

              Jack Carson - never gets picked for Sussex needs a slight improvement to his bowling

              liam Trevaskis - needs a bump to both bowling and bat, never gets picked in game for FC and rarely in limited overs compared with his consistent selection IRL

              Joey Evison - needs a small bump to bat/bowl

              jake Lintott - needs an improvement to bowl, rarely does well in game


              • Harshal Patel needs bowling boost.


                • Should Asad Shafiq be retired from 20 over didn't picked in national t20 and his age is more than 35 year's.

                  • Ryan Hackney should be a ROB rather than a SLA according to his profile on WSX cricket
                    I think Baxter Holt should be average aggression, he had a strike rate of 103 in U19 ODIs & hasn't played many senior pro innings yet.
                    Matthew Wade should be very aggressive based on his strike rates in the past few seasons
                    Joe Medew-Ewen bats right handed
                    Gurinder Sandhu was named in the Queensland side for the Sheffield Shield & One Day Cup games against Tas and SA.
                    Tim Paine should be in the Hobart Hurricanes squad. He was in it last season but didn't get picked and is still their player in the same way Starc is the Sixers player.
                    I don't know if the BBL squads have been updated but Fawad Ahmed, James Faulkner and Callum Ferguson were all been released by their BBL teams

                    Think Ben Stokes shouldn't be one of the 5 main bowlers in limited overs in-game as he isn't for England. If not then should get a big nerf in limited overs bowling. Think he might be underrated with the bat and has had brilliant stats over the past few years (from about 2018-2019, I think has also calmed down in terms of strike rates)
                    Was wondering if Joe Cooke deserves an upgrade (at least in bowling?) and changed to allrounder as well as changed from very defensive. Had an exceptional RLODC and have to say wasn't expecting it. I think he was batting in the middle order as well during the winning run.
                    Steven Reingold is missing from Glamorgan & I believe the game in general
                    Sam Northeast left Hampshire by mutual consent early on in the season and I feel as if he should either be a free agent or with one of the counties he played for this season. Also saw while trying to find out what happened that he will coach cricket & rugby at Eton in the autumn so don't know if he's retiring.
                    I still feel as if Luke Wells should be an allrounder considering since 2018 he's been bowling the majority of his career overs for Sussex and now Lancashire.
                    Same with Scott Steel as he has bowled in 24 out of 33 T20s and hasn't played any other format for Leicestershire
                    Nick Gubbins should be at Hampshire after he signed on loan for most of the season with it also be a permanent deal.
                    Joe Cracknell is still showing as a full keeper when I start a new career
                    If he isn't Tim Murtagh should probably be classed as Middlesex's vice captain for when Handscomb is unavailable as he finished the season captain of the FC side.
                    Ishaan Kaushal is missing from Middlesex. He was awarded a contract at the same time as Greatwood. He would've certainly played in the RLODC but got injured almost immediately that ruled him out of the tournament.
                    Harry Seagrave (16 year old SLA) was in the squad of 13 for the game against Gloucestershire on the 8th of august but the game got called off due to a covid outbreak. Also in the squad of 13 for the game away to Sussex but didn't play.
                    Simon Kerrigan last played a T20 in 2013, don't know if that's because he doesn't want to or just isn't picked for it
                    Ben Slater bats in the middle order in T20s and I believe batted at 5 in the QF vs Hampshire.
                    Steven Mullaney bats in the middle-order, hasn't opened reguarly in a few years since all the new players came in 2018. Ben Duckett in 2020 & 2021 has been batting at 3.
                    Would it be possible to have Abell's bowling boosted or made into a 5th bowler for Somerset? At least for first class matches?
                    Tom Hinley - another Sussex youth graduate
                    Don Butchart is an allrounder rather than just a batsman

                    I think Virat Kohli should be in the Delhi CC side domestically as though he hasn't played it in years I feel he would return there rather than go to some team in a low division, such as Dhoni did with Jharkhand.
                    MS Dhoni & Suresh Raina should be changed to average aggression, both have slowed down big time in their later years. Robin Uthappa should be average aggression too, perhaps even defensive?
                    Cheteshwar Pujara should be changed to very defensive
                    KC Cariappa is a leggie not a offspinner

                    Corey Anderson quit NZ cricket for the USA but isn't shown in-game.

                    Northern: Mohammad Ismail should be a LMF

                    Boland: Isma-Eel Gafieldien bowls right arm legspin
                    EP: Sinethemba Qeshile is a RFM according to crichq
                    EASTERNS: Wesley Coulentianos is a SLA (his wsx profile also has his birthday as 1995 rather than 1994)
                    Donovan Ferreira is a (economical) OB and a allrounder rather than a wicketkeeper
                    BORDER: Jerome Bossr is a SLA
                    Nonela Yikha is a OB
                    Bongolwethu Makeleni LM->LB, there's a duplicate of the 2 players in the Border team, If I remember correctly he is a LHB rather than RHB?
                    Gideon Peters is a RHB RF
                    NORTHERN CAPE: Rivaldo Moonsamy is a OB
                    MPUMALANGA: Tumi Koto is a RHB RM
                    RA Herman is Rubin Hermann (his initals should be: RAH)
                    F/A: Ruben Trupelmann should be aggressive
                    Yamkela Oliphant should be a occasional keeper (has kept in a few games)
                    Neo Felane is a RHB OB
                    Tiaan van Vuuren should be a LFM

                    Matt Ford should be Irish but in-game is South African.
                    Malcolm Nofal has popped back up in South Africa and played for Limpopo the other day.

                    Lasith Malinga retired after not playing since last March
                    Upul Tharanga retired in February

                    Don't think Parvez Hossain Emon should be down as very defensive.

                    Nathan McGuire was Ireland's leading wickettaker at the U19 qualifier just gone.
                    This is for the % stats thing, but Ben White on his T20 debut bowled 6 dot balls in the game (Iirc there was a livestream of it) but that stat isn't shown in-game at the moment.
                    Some players who played in the final few days of the T20 competition are missing such as Morgan Topping, and debutants such as Thomas Mayes, Liam McCarthy, Cian Robertson and Theo Lawson. Trent McKeegan, Robbie Millar, Tom Stanton & Mikey O'Reilly were also called up by their teams but didn't play however.
                    Also considering the small player pool Ireland relatively have, would it be possible to have their U19 squad (like the one that qualified for the U19 WC next year) added into the game? Especially as there's no league system in the game and most of them are already playing in the emerging or youth interpros.

                    JP Kotze & Zhivago Groenewald have retired a short while ago. Kotze I knew about but Groenewald's is mentioned in the ICC press release for Namibia's T20 WC squad.
                    Nicol Lofie-Eaton is a leggie

                    Some players that are missing:
                    Ben Ward (Jersey international) is missing and played for Boland & the Cape Cobras last season. Think he should be a free agent if not in the Boland team. Don't know if it's possible to have him as a free agent in various countries (i.e. SA & Eng). Played there last season due to having a South African passport
                    Oliver Metcalfe played in 2019 & is still knocking about. Playing in the Interpro future series this season so will probably get a few opportunites next season if not an Ireland Wolves tour.

                    Some players missing initals:
                    Ruadhan (P) Jones
                    Seanan (R) Jones
                    David J(A) O'Halloran
                    Suliman Safi (K)
                    Tiaan (M) van Vuuren
                    Imran Imran should be Imran Mir

                    Nationalities that should be changed:
                    Matt Ford SA->IRE
                    Ruben Trupelmann & David Wiese SA->NAM (both in T20 WC squad as well)
                    Smit Patel, Harmeet Singh (both IND), Corey Anderson (NZ), Justin Dill & Obus Pienaar (both SA) all retired to qualify and play in/for the USA. Articles about their respective retirements are online as well.
                    Murray Commins, Graham Hume & Ruhan Pretorius all should be changed to Irish nationality. I think one or 2 of them are either qualified now or soon to be by early 2022.

                    DOBs that need updating
                    Haris Rauf is 7/11/93
                    Qld: Will Prestwidge 15/1/02
                    SA: Kyle Brazell (has 1 Z apparently) 20/9/01 - can bowl a bit and a little economically too
                    Bailey Capel 15/4/00
                    Ryan King 2/11/01

                    Paven Rathnayake 24/8/02 RHB LB + occ wk. Has kept 2 or so times. Very exciting talent for Sri Lanka, youngest to score a FC century in SL cricket (and SL U19 debut at 16)
                    AFG: Noor Ahmad is 3/1/05 rather than 23/6/02 (that's a different Noor Ahmad who played around the same time the 2005 one made his debut) and is a RHB
                    Zohaib Ahmadzai 10/2/02
                    James Newland - 21/12/93

                      He's actually a SLW


                      • Not sure if it fits under this thread but I really love this game but there a few things that could potentially be added next year to make it even better (even just one of these would be good). Would like to see DRS, a women's cricket option & a draft for the IPL rather than regular contracting. Great game already though, keep up the good work


                        • Only issue I've found with the database is Shane Watson's listing as a batter instead of an allrounder

                            I think that's just a carry over from late in his career when was just a batsman. He probably should be changed to allrounder as a historical player since he did have that role for a much larger portion of his career and was one of Australia's best allrounder stats-wise.
