    As far as spinners go, I don't see Boyce being our go to spinner with his health last year. I hope he has had a full recovery, is 100% fit and can return in good form but playing a whole season seems unlikely with no match practice in a long time. Peter was probably our best bowler last year alongside Richardson so hopefully we pick up a good spinner in the preseason or get a international spinner, who can be the number one spinner (sorry Noor Ahmad).

      I don’t know if you can change the fixtures at this point but in the game, Bangladesh after playing against Zimbabwe play against England but in real life Bangladesh will play Australia in Home, a 5 match T20I series and later New Zealand will also tour Bangladesh and they will also play 5 T20Is, just after Australia series. It would be cool if you can add these series ????

      Haven’t played much but felt Shamim is a bit underrated and he should be V.Aggressive. Scored 29(13) on debut and on his 2nd match he won the game with 31*(15). He is highly rated for his hard-hitting finishing abilities. Changed to agg.

      Mahmudul Hasan Joy, Towhid Hridoy and Parvez Hossain Emon are other three players who are really close to National team and should reflect on the game also.

        Imam is defensive SR of 44 in FC and 80 (or a bit under) in LA, he's V Def.
        Haris Sohail is a average SRs are low, only marginally better than Imam. He'll be staying Defensive.
        And Rizwan is underrated. He needs a boost His in game ability is fair.

          Sureshot I’ve moved over to this version now and after a week of playing offline (I’m not going to be an online player this time round) I’ve noticed the following:

          some England players who have really proved themselves over last year still seem to be the same ability as last game:

          Bairstow - surely now considered the best ODI opener in the world but still not as good as David Warner Bairstow has been brilliant in ODIs, I'd argue that Warner has nailed Test Cricket, Bairstow hasn't (48 vs 34 average), thus feel it's fair for Warner to be a bit better than Bairstow (who is still good in game)

          Root - proved he can bowl a bit on turning decks, think he needs to be a bit better at bowling His bowling ability is fair compared to his real world performances with the ball. Decent part timer in game and in real life.

          Stokes - I think his bowling is a bit underrated but his batting needs a big increase as there aren’t many better batters than him in the world today Have improved him with the bat a bit, his bowling ability is fine in game.

          Essex:

          Dan Lawrence - Seems worse than the last game. Even though hit and miss for England so far still has bags of potential and also handy with the ball at county level IRL Yes, he had a poor 2020 and I think perhaps was overly punished for that. Good season this year. I've improved with bat and ball (now similar to Root with the ball).

          Micheal Pepper - shown he is a good young batter this season and has some potential but awful on game Fair call, has some ability, done ok in 3 FC matches this season and in 20 Overs. Significantly improved.

          Sam Cook - Maybe the best seamer in county cricket over last few years and has overtaken Jamie Porter as Essex lead seamer but the game still has them the other way round Fair call, I think Porter is over-rated, so I've nobbled him.

            Hi Sureshot thanks for reviewing my feedback. I must still contend though that Aaron Lilley is underrated with the bat in t20 by some margin.

            I give you his stats in the t20 Blast in 2020 and 2021 (2 years in a row he's been in the top 20 batsmen in the Blast even playing less games than others in 2019).

            Now I give you his 2021 t20 campaign from 3 saves in game:

            it occurred to me with the first one that the AI were either not picking him or picking him down the order. So the latter two were t20 campaigns where I was playing as Leicestershire and picked at 3 myself. I did have other saves that show similar but am limited to 5 screenshots.

            As you can see he's not being used by the AI as a top order bat and when he is picked he's not scoring half the runs he has in real life.

            Appreciate your point on how many 50s he has but it's worth considering Lancashire initially used him as mainly a leg spinner before he found his current pinch hitting role, and stats don't record all the 30s and 40s he's made in recent seasons.

            He should comfortably be Leicestershire's best non overseas t20 batsman but currently is well down the list.

            Okay, have made some improvements to Lilley.

              Can you please stop double-posting? You make some good points, but they could be made in 2 posts rather than 40.

                Especially comps that only have a small amount of teams like Aus. A few touring players played the occasional touring match during longer tours but that was decades ago. AI seems to select one international player to be a part of the main XI. This is unrealistic now because of local talent being overlooked as well as how low the pay is compared to T20 over tournaments.

                Also Hilal8844554499, you can edit posts to save posting multiple times. This makes looking through active threads like this one tedious since one-line posts take up far more space than one larger, edited post.

                  Azam Khan should have strong preference vs spin, not pace. Changed.

                  Mohammad Haris performance isn't up to the mark considering he averages both 40 in List A & T20 Yes, although a really small sample size for 20 Over. I agree he's under-rated, have improved in game.

                      Aaron Thomason's batting seems a bit overrated. He's a solid batsman in real life but a bit too handy in game I think. Danial Ibrahim on the other hand should be improved. I've actually seen Thomason play test matches for England in season 2 in two saves now which doesn't seem realistic. Good find, significantly nobbled for next update.

                      I mentioned previously that Luis Reece was performing poorly for Derbyshire, from playing against them it seems that he's often being picked very low in the order with Godleman and McDermott opening. Godleman has been dropped from t20s now and I'd be a bit surprised if he plays another to be honest so Reece and McDermott should be the t20 openers. Reece also opened or batted at 3 in the hundred and struck 4 fine 50s in the Blast so is probably Derbyshire best white ball bat along with Du Plooy. Thanks. I've improved Reece with the bat, but also nobbled with the ball, not bowling much this season and when he has, not so good.

                      Alex Hughes bowling wise seems a bit too good in first class and a bit too expensive in t20s. He's really a t20 specialist these days. I've made some tweaks to his economy.

                      Matt Critchley could be a bit more economical in white ball cricket and perhaps a tiny bit better with bat after a good first class season this year. Yes, he's done well in the Championship this season. I've given him a small improvement.

                      Sam Evans at Leicestershire could also have a slight downgrade, he's good and a prospect but the England test team in season 2 is too early. Also sometimes plays t20s and List A and shouldn't with Inglis and Steel the preferred opening pair and Evans very much a red ball specialist (painfully slow) in t20. Steel on the other hand doesn't play first class. Have tweaked.

                      Azad may need a slight downgrade too, he's frankly poor these days after a good debut season. Very limited technique and has been figured out. Tweaked.

                      Ollie Sale is far too economical in t20s, should have decent wicket taking ability but has work to do on his economy. He's been nerfed and I've tweaked his economy.

                      I think on balance across all formats Lewis Hill has been Leicestershire's best non overseas batter this season, in game he's only picked sporadically. Nixon has talked a lot about his improvement based on hard work. Scored two good hundreds in the one day cup too. One decent half season doesn't over-rate several mediocre seasons. I think he needs more continuous form to warrant an increase.

                      Swindells is bang on in first class but I think could be slightly better in t20s where this season and last he's batted much better than when thrown in as an opener early on his career. Promising young cricketer, having a good season. Improved.

                      Rishi Patel could be an opener in List A and t20, opened in the one day cup this season and in t20 once Steel stopped being picked. Changed Rishi Patel to LA/20Over opener

                      Tom Abell maybe slightly underrated with the bat. Small increase.

                      Joe Cracknell has been good in the Blast this season with 2 fifties and playing most games as well as getting called up to the Hundred but is a non-entity in game averaging single figures for me over three seasons and doesn't improve either. 2 Decent innings in 20 overs, I've given him a small increase.

                      Blake Cullen is very underrated white ball bowling wise. He's been improved.

                      Will Smeed must be one of the hottest white ball prospects in the country too so may need a further upgrade in white ball batting after his exploits in the hundred. He's been improved again.

                      Alex Blake seems underrated, he does get picked for t20s but averages low teens consistently in saves I've seen. Weak record this season, pretty poor overall record. He's 32, so not a youngster. Won't be improved.

                      Harry Duke and George Hill at Yorkshire are poor and stay poor in game but I think in real life this season have shown they're already good players with high potential. I'd say the same about Revis too who is very poor in game. Still exceptionally early in their careers. I've given Duke a small increase, Hill a bigger increase as his batting ability was way off. Revis not doing much so far, not played outside of List A, will leave as is for now.

                      Harry Brook has been very good indeed in the Blast too so could be improved considerably in the format. I've been tweaking Brook.

                      Similar to Hill and Duke, Jack Davies recently hit 70 odd against an Essex attack including Harmer and Porter so is no mug. In game I've not seen him play in the first three years of my current save or any others. When I played as Middlesex he was another that barely cracked double figures. A bit like Hill, his ability was way off. Davies has played a bit of U-19s too.

                      James Taylor at Surrey is another highly thought of youngster who was tempted down from Derbyshire and would have played more this season were it not for injury. He's desperately poor in game so could be improved a bit. Fair call, have improved.

                      Dominic Goodman should be RFM rather than RM. Changed.

                      A few of the young lads like the above and the likes of Gouldstone and Heldreich at Northants and Goodman at Glos it may seem early for improvements but if they aren't moved a bit closer to their first team team mates then they're quickly outshadowed by regens and fade away. From watching all of the above this season I think they've all shown some of the technique/temperament required to make it as county players and at the very least should be expected to average high 20s if a batter or low 30s with ball with potential to improve beyond that. At the moment in my experience they all either don't play or if I play them will average mid-high teens with bat and mid 40s with ball and not improve.

                      I've improved Gouldstone, Heldreich is a tricky one. He did well in the 20 overs this year, but also didn't play all matches. Struggled in a few List A games. Not all cricketers make it, there has to be a balance and they need to prove themselves to some extent. Heldreich's potential ability in game is decent for a typical county pro cricketer.

                      I'd like to see more of them at least quickly become Max Holden or Charlie Thurston levels with salary levels around 30k rather than <22k no hopers.

                      Harrison Ward seems overrated. Consistently outperforms all the young players in this post despite poorer results in real life. Good point, nobbled.

                      Jack Leaning a touch underrated with the bat. His ability looks fair to me.

                      Nathan Gilchrist a bit underrated with ball. Fair call, have improved.

                      Roman Walker looked superb in the Blast for Glamorgan so could be upgraded a bit. Following those games he had a falling out and is now moving to Leicestershire or he would have played more so perhaps a small bowling increase. His potential is solid.

                      Joe Cooke seems to generally turn out quite good in most of my saves, in real life he had a good go this season and was very poor. Feels like his ability, potential or both could be nobbled. He's got a solid record, over a decent set of matches. I feel he's about right at the moment.

                        Agree with all of these, young player’s in the game for years have been poor, regen’s overtake them constantly.

                              Hilal8844554499 You know you can edit your posts all into one?

                              Also worth pointing out that unless a player has explicitly said they are retired from the format, they are still eligible. Non interest is very fickle, players change their minds all the time.

                                Glenn phillips - batting

                                I would like to add Trent Boult and Tim Southee to this list. Both are averaging in the high 40's in Test cricket and over that for one day cricket. Nothing wrong with Southee and Boult's abilities.
