This thread is for all squad lists and RPs for the GCF's 12th season of Test cricket. Results will also be posted in this thread.
Please only post in here if you have had a Test confirmed on the schedule, or have indicated an interest in scheduling. Do not schedule any series in here; there is a separate thread for that. SCHEDULING IS STILL OPEN.

All games will be scorinated by Liventia. The scorinator is the publicly-available ApoxBaller, which includes an option to define pitch/ground modifiers. This allows the host nation of each series to determine the type of pitch the players will play on. Before each home series, can the hosting nation please confirm ground modifiers (from –6 for a pitch that suits bowlers to +6 for a batting paradise) for each of the Test matches they will host for the series. Not doing so will indicate acceptance of the ground modifiers being 0.

The GCF Season

1. Each GCF season runs for a period decided by the season host. The schedule must afford each nation the opportunity to schedule at least ten Test matches, one per scorination period. (There is no maximum number of Tests.)
2. Each nation may have at most one Test scheduled per scorination period (matchday). Determination of home ground is up to the nations who agree to play.
3. Nations are strongly encouraged to schedule series of two or more consecutive Tests with the same host nation instead of one-offs. Nations are not allowed to schedule home-and-away series or two or more one-offs in the same season with the same opponent.

The GCF Rankings

4. Definitions
  • One-off Test: Any Test not part of a series. One-off results are added to ratings of Full Members and Associate Members immediately; for Candidates the results are held until qualification for Associate Member status and then added in.
  • Series: Two, three or more consecutive Tests between the same parties and played in the same host nation. Results for both the series and all constituent Tests are added into ratings only after the series is complete.
  • Match: All Tests and all series are considered matches. A one-off Test is one match. A two-Test series is three matches; a three-Test series, four matches.
  • Full Member (FM): A nation calendared in the current Test season that has accumulated 10 or more matches, counting this season and the two most recent completed seasons, and is not an Affiliate Member.
  • Associate Member (AS): A nation calendared in the current Test season that has completed at least one series but does not yet meet the standard for Full Member, and is not an Affiliate Member.
  • Affiliate Member (AF): A nation calendared in the current Test season that has completed at least one series, but has not been allowed to schedule more than five Tests due to roleplaying restrictions.
    Affiliate Members can be promoted to Associate Members; once Associate Membership is obtained, the nation will retain Associate or Full Membership permanently while active. Returning Associate or Full Members will start at Candidate level, but bypass Affiliate status once the appropriate criteria are met.
  • Candidate (CA): A nation calendared in the current Test season that has yet to complete a series.
  • Competitors in the most recent complete season that have not calendared in the current Test season are coded IN for Inactive, or CE if their federation has Ceased to Exist. Records are maintained for a possible return to activity.
5. A Candidate has a adjusted rating of 100 for scorination purposes, and will have a calculated rating of 80 for rankings calculation purposes.
6. When rating one nation in a series, if their opponent is rated (calculated rating) more than 40 points higher/lower at the start of the series then the ranking formula in Clauses 9 and 10 below apply and the ranking formula in Clause 8 below does not apply.
7. A Match win (including a Series win) will count as one series point and a Match draw (including a Series draw) will count as half a series point for ranking calculation purposes.
8. The rating points earned by one nation in a series (or a one-off), where both nations are rated (calculated rating) within 40 points of each other, equal the team's series points multiplied by the opponent's calculated rating plus 50, plus the opponent's series points multiplied by the opponent's calculated rating minus 50.
Example: Four-Test series, A (rated 125) in B (rated 90). A wins Tests 1 and 4, B wins Test 2, and Test 3 is drawn.

Team A has 3.5 series points (two Tests and one series won, one Test drawn). Team B has 1.5 series points (one Test won, one Test drawn).

Team A gets 3.5*(90+50)+1.5*(90-50) = 490+60 = 550 rating points.
Team B gets 1.5*(125+50)+3.5*(125-50) = 262.5+262.5 = 525 rating points.

9. The rating points earned by one nation in a series (or a one-off), where that nation is rated (calculated rating) more than 40 points higher than its opponent, equal the team's series points multiplied by the team's own calculated rating plus 10, plus the opponent's series points multiplied by the team's own calculated rating minus 90.
10. The rating points earned by one nation in a series (or a one-off), where that nation is rated (calculated rating) more than 40 points lower than its opponent, equal the team's series points multiplied by the team's own calculated rating plus 90, plus the opponent's series points multiplied by the team's own calculated rating minus 10.
Example: Four-Test series, A (rated 125) in B (rated 70). A wins Tests 1 and 4, B wins Test 2, and Test 3 is drawn.

Team A has 3.5 series points (two Tests and one series won, one Test drawn). Team B has 1.5 series points (one Test won, one Test drawn).

Team A gets 3.5*(125+10)+1.5*(125-90) = 472.5+52.5 = 525 rating points.
Team B gets 1.5*(70+90)+3.5*(70-10) = 240+210 = 450 rating points.

11. An Associate or Affiliate Member whose calculated rating is above 100 averages the calculated rating with 90, rounding towards 100; an Associate or Affiliate Member whose calculated rating is below 100 averages the calculated rating with 110, rounding towards 100.
12. All Full Members average their calculated rating with 100, for their adjusted rating.
13. A four-step procedure is used to update ratings.
  • a. Add the rating points for each nation to their previous total.
  • b. Add the number of matches played to that previous total.
  • c. Divide the new rating points total by the updated number of matches to get an updated calculated rating.
  • d. Average the calculated rating with the required constant as specified in Clauses 11 and 12 above, producing an adjusted rating correct to two decimal places for Full Members and rounded towards 100 for Associate and Affiliate Members.
14. Ratings are based on data from the current season and and the two immediately preceding complete seasons. At the end of each season all older results are purged and ratings recalculated accordingly.
15. Scorination will be done using each team's adjusted rating.

The League standings and World Test Challenge Final
16. League points will be awarded as follows: 16 points for a win, 9 for a tie, 5 for a draw, an additional 4 points for a first-innings lead or 2 points for a first-innings tie, 1 bonus point for a win by 10 wickets or an innings.
17. To qualify for the final League standings and the World Test Challenge Final, teams must play a minimum of one home and one away series, and a minimum of six matches (not including series). Teams that play at least six matches but all at home or all away shall not be eligible for the final League standings.
18. To account for the different number of matches each team may play, the final total – not including bonus points – will be averaged by the number of matches played. This does not include series (unlike when tabulating the rankings, which do count series as matches). Bonus points are to be added after the average. Points will be rounded to the nearest 0.1 point. Teams tied on points shall not be separated, except where there is a tie for a deciding qualifying spot for the World Test Challenge Final.
19. After 12 matchdays, the top two qualified teams in the League standings will play a one-off World Test Challenge Final, to be played at a venue selected by the League standings winner.
20. Should there be more than one team on the same number of points (rounded to the nearest 0.1) that would qualify for the World Test Challenge Final, the tie(s) shall be broken as follows: Points not including bonus points, number of wins divided by number of matches played, number of wins plus draws plus ties divided by number of matches played, world ranking (Full Members shall always be considered to be ranked higher than Associate Members).
21. Should the World Test Challenge Final be drawn or tied, the team with the first-innings lead in the Final shall be crowned champions. If there is a tie on first-innings scores, the World Test Challenge title shall be shared.

Standard batting order:
1. Reginald Twaddle (26) - R fast/R Opener - West Surbourneshire - has established himself as the first name on the team sheet after Marsden, and his run-scoring ability while getting a grasp of the conditions at the start of an innings are unrivaled.
2. Alois Lyness (23) - L med/L Opener - Greencaster - The spot opposite Twaddle has seen a few different characters over time, and now it's up to Lyness who has already showed some talent on the national team.
3. Everett White (32) - R med/R Batsman - Leeshire - As the core of batsmen are getting into their late 30s, White might not always have been the best but he's been dependable at least.
4. Illres yChaegrheodd (29) - R med/R Batsman - Mawryshire - Mawryshire's main scorer has all the shots in him and is here for some showmanship and unorthodox boundaries.
5. Dennis Stanway (30) - L orth/L Batsman - Leeshire - Always seen as a bit boring, Stanway shows leadership and is the perfect person to accompany the lower order.
6. Arnold Douglas (23) - R off/R All-rounder - Leeshire - New to the team, Douglas is a somewhat defensive batsman with a great offbreak.
7. Finley Meredith (29) - R leg/R Wicketkeeper - Willowbourne - The number one question always was 'Meredith or Wheelwright?' but as the latter is now too old, Meredith has this spot locked down for half a decade at least.
8. Aaron Maitland (21) - L fast/L All-rounder - East Surbourneshire - The rookie has yet to show whether he's a better bowler or batsman. Early results indicate the former. The team will have to try to avoid putting too much pressure on his shoulders: he doesn't have to be a top 3 bowler and a top 3 batsman.
9. Rutherford Lincoln (32) - R leg/R Bowler - Willowbourne - Good old Lincoln, the best spinner in the land.
X. Zacharias Fox (29) - L fast/L Bowler - East Surbourneshire - Yo-yoing in and out of the squad over the last years, Fox had a great season and his skills are rare-ish as Ko-oren has a permanent shortage of leftie pacers.
=. Herschel Marsden (34) - R fast/R Bowler - West Surbourneshire - Marsden, the eternal captain, is here again to get some great economy rates and less stellar strike rates.

Additional Team Members:
Denis Treloar (24) - L orth/L Opener - Leeshire
Dallas Welsh (32) - R med/R Batsman - West Surbourneshire
Levi Pardey (25) - R fast/R Batsman - West Surbourneshire
Dewitt Cheyne (25) - R med/R All-rounder - Greencaster - We've seen plenty of Cheyne before, but he's more of a batting all-rounder, while the team was looking for a slightly more bowling-minded one.
Leonard Palmer (23) - R off/R Wicketkeeper - West Surbourneshire - The search is on for the next second wicketkeeper, and Palmer is showing great promise.
Lewis Tilcott (25) - L unorth/L Bowler - Greencaster
Lachlan Harvey (32) - R fast/R Bowler - East Surbourneshire - Ko-oren has enough right-handed pace bowlers which means Harvey will have to sit out some matches.

U23 Players:
Lyojall Firembee (22) - L fast/L Opener - West Surbourneshire
Genorak Dherengun (20) - L fast/L Batsman - Leeshire
Tahoselkun Dirhonindhen (22) - L med/L Batsman - Leeshire
Isaac Quelch (22) - R fast/R Batsman - Willowbourne - Has appeared in Tests before.
Chognam yBewlchawd (22) - R leg/R Wicketkeeper - Mawryshire
Mitchell Enright (22) - R leg/R Bowler - Greencaster - Has appeared in Tests before.
Lesomhof yPipaem (21) - L fast/L Bowler - Mawryshire - Has appeared in Tests before.
Totokun Multherinden (22) - L fast/L Bowler - West Surbourneshire

Venues
Greencaster Oval (50.000) in Greencaster, Surbourneshire (used by Greencaster (FC, LA) and the Greencaster Heralds and Greencaster Bears (T20))
Ground mod 0 - Greencaster lies in in the centre of the southern gulf. The maritime conditions and slightly artificial pitch give all players a chance to succeed.

Royal Oval (40.000) in Willowbourne, the Corridor (used by Willowbourne (FC, LA) and the Willowbourne Zenith (T20))
Ground mod +1 - Willowbourne is right in the middle of western Ko-oren, on the plains. Prone to mild droughts, the pitch deteriorates perfectly throughout a match but suits batsmen more in the first (few) day(s).

Leewardia Oval (31.000) in Maynard, Leeshire (used by Leeshire (FC, LA))
Ground mod +2 - Rural, but close to large population centres, at the foot of a mountain range, close to the nation's breadbasket, and with a great sporting tradition, Maynard has a bit of everything. The altitude combined with otherwise neutral conditions means there's runs to be scored through the air at your own risk.

Southbight Ground (29.000) in Ansonville, Springlands (used by West Surbourneshire (FC, LA))
Ground mod -1 - Ansonville's stable climate, not too humid, not too dry, close to the coast but not directly on it, means this is as close to a neutral climate as you'll find. The pitch itself has a poor reputation in Ko-oren but it's not all that bad.

yBherafon Hills (24.000) in Llandy, Mawryshire (used by Mawryshire (FC, LA))
Ground mod -3 - Llandy is located on the far southwestern peninsula of Ko-oren's mainland. Windy, rainy conditions mean it's seldom comfortable and warm - even in summer - and the rapidly changing conditions are good for any team and captain that can anticipate these.

Silverion Ground (25.000) in Cirelbourne, Surbourneshire (used by East Surbourneshire (FC, LA) and Eastern Miners (T20))
Ground mod +2 - Cirelbourne is originally a mining city, hidden deep away on the south coast, between the sea and a mountain range. This is also where the arid land begins, and if the wind blows in from the east, you'll notice that. During mid-summer heat waves (which might happen) the ground has plenty on offer for batsmen. If not, the flat track still favours batsmen anyway.

Goledon Oval (25.005) in Bruncester, Surbourneshire (used by East Surbourneshire (FC, LA) and Eastern Miners (T20))
Ground mod +1 - Bruncester completed their stadium just a few years after Cirelbourne's, making it a full five seats larger because they could. Otherwise, the same conditions as Cirelbourne apply.

Additional Venues
Ruby Hills (18.000) in Burnet, Burnet Island (used by Burnet Rubies (T20)), Ground mod 0
Timberton Oval (12.800) in Aubury, Leeshire (used by Aubury Maroons (T20)), Ground mod +2
Dawsend Oval (11.500) in Idyllwild, the Corridor (used by Idyllwild Antlers (T20)), Ground mod 0
Stade Échechade (9.000) in Norille, the Corridor (used by Norille Chevron Vert (T20)), Ground mod -2
Kherodru Oval (7.900) in Mayara, KCT (used by Mayara Marauders (T20)), Ground mod -1
Ovale Liniane (6.600) in Linieux, Cote Austral (used by Linieux Lieutenants (T20)), Ground mod 0
Bwdellafon Parc (6.000) in Mawrystwyth, Mawryshire (used by Mawrystwyth Mustangs(T20)), Ground mod -3
Summerkind Oval (21.000) in Willowbourne, the Corridor (used by teams in the Willowbourne state league), Ground mod +1
NS Sports’ only World Cup, World Bowl, World Cup of Hockey, World Baseball Classic and International Basketball Championships loser! (But we lost some finals in other events as well)

Krytenian Grounds
For use in the first five Tests of the season


Emberton Cricket Ground, Emberton (aka The ECG; cap 58,330)
Used by: Emberton SCC (State Championship), Emberton Lions (One Day Cup, T20 Trophy)
Ground modifier: 0
Ends: Pavilion End, Grandstand End
Match: First Test v Milchama
Useful information: The ECG is the headquarters of Cricket Krytenia, and the de facto home of cricket in the nation. As such, it will tend to host the first home Test of the season - for Season 12 this will be the First Test versus Milchama. It is best described as a "fair" pitch, providing opportunities for batters and bowlers alike to show their class. The Grandstand End is a few yards shorter than the Pavilion End, so batters should bear this in mind when selecting shots.

Vale Park, Avidia (aka The Vale; cap 52,025)
Used by: Avide-Dioro SCC (State Championship), Avide-Dioro Rivermen (One Day Cup, T20 Trophy)
Ground modifier: +2
Ends: Bridge Street End, Lockwood Road End
Match: Third Test v The Plough Islands
Useful information: Vale Park hosted the first-ever GCF Test match, between Krytenia and The Babbage Islands. Nowadays, it serves as the venue for the finale of the Krytenian home Test season, and will host the Third Test against The Plough Islands. The pitch tends to be more willow-friendly, and doesn't tend to break up too much over the course of five days; spinners will not like this place. Morning sessions could be interesting, as its position close to the River Avide can lead to dew on the outfield - on cooler days, it's even been known for mist patches rolling in off the river around the area, though this doesn't tend to extend to the playing area itself thanks to the surrounding stands.

University Ground, Ousevale (aka The Uni; cap 37,155)
Used by: Central Mercia SCC (State Championship), Central Mercia Scholars (One Day Cup, T20 Trophy)
Ground modifier: 0
Ends: Pavilion End, Keys College End
Match: First Test v The Plough Islands
Useful information: Officially, the ground is owned by the University of Ousevale rather than the State Cricket Club, making it one of only two State grounds (the ECG being the other) owned by an entity other than the local SCC. Has some slightly unusual dimensions due to the way the corner stands were built; the playing area is technically octagonal, though the boundaries immediately opposite and square of the wicket do have the expected curve. The diagonally-positioned corner stands each have a cow statue set in concrete placed in them; one of these will be underlit for each delivery, depending on which one is actually at "cow corner".

Northern Oval, Quinton (aka The Oval; cap 28,800)
Used by: Quinneth SCC (State Championship), Quinneth Wolves (One Day Cup, T20 Trophy)
Ground modifier: -3
Ends: Heatherfields End, Shed End
Match: Second Test v The Plough Islands
Useful information: The north-east of Krytenia has what we like to call "good farming weather". In other words - expect grey skies and the potential for rain and bad light stoppages. On the other hand, an absolute dream for swing bowlers. Don't be surprised if the outfield is slow even in dry weather, as the grass used is a thicker variety than used at most grounds.

Admirals Park, Beckton (aka The Addy; cap 24,450)
Used by: Beck SCC (State Championship), Beck Admirals (One Day Cup, T20 Trophy)
Ground modifier: -1
Ends: Landward End, Lakeside End
Match: Second Test v Milchama
Useful information: Admirals Park will be holding its first ever Test when it welcomes Krytenia and Milchama for the Second Test of their series. The pitch itself provides a bit of bounce for seamers, and can deteriorate to give the spinners some joy on later days in the test. The biggest challenge is the "Beck Breeze" - the easterly wind that picks up off Lake Beck and blows that lovely saltwater air all over the damn shop.

The Black Dolphins


Squad announcement for the third East-West Cup in Sylestone

The Grearish black dolphins' side will be touring the far western realms of Esportiva as they tour Sylestone for the first part of the 3rd East-West Cup. Taylor Kincheloe has been kept as the skipper of the side with Suprenant as her deputy. The three tests to be played in this first leg of the tour will be part of the World Test Challenge that is being conducted under the supervision of the Global Cricket Federation. After the three tests against Sylestone, the black dolphins are slated for games against the Licentian Isles. Ko-oren, and Krytenia. The board also wishes to put on record that the current coaching staff of the Grearish national team will be under scrutiny throughout this Test season to the end of extension or termination of their contract as national team staff. The board thanks its partners TAS Grearia and Aer for their continued and kind support to Grearish cricket.

Player Bios

[Bat] Maida Mcleroy (28) - R Offbreak/R (Grearish Services)
On debut
Being a stylish right hander who has been in brilliant form for the Services side in the domestic campaign, the naturally gifted player has finally found some form to break through to the national squad. Her Letterman Trophy performances in the middle order have stabilised the Services ship every time they looked wobbly. There might be some pressure on her to perform on the international stage after being prolific in the domestic scene, but one should expect the serene cover drives of the left-hander to come to the party sooner than later.

[Bat] Numbers Benedetto (28) - L Medium/L (Valgow Bulls)
Mat: 1, Inns: 2, Runs: 48, Best: 43, Ave: 24, SR: 72.73, 100s: 0, 50s: 0
The most talented left handed opener in the Grearish game stepped up to the plate yet again as Numbers' first-class performances propelled into yet another East-West Cup squad. A solid 40-odd runs in his debut test makes him an inevitable choice as the black dolphins try to stamp their mark on to the World Test Challenge.

[Bat] Kerry Clark (22) - L Slow/L (Elesborough Everblades)
On debut
Perhaps the most exciting young prospect of all, Clark has been diligent in his Everblades duty this season, racking up a two centuries in the four group stage matches that the team played. Youth and creativity are strongly on this young man's side as he will look to break into the first team regularly, after hopefully breaching the XI in the tour of Sylestone itself. An East-West Cup test is never the easiest match to debut in, but if anything, Kerry Clark has shown that he thrives in pressure.

[Bat] Mirian Dodds (35) - L Fast/R (Adenham Bears)
Mat: 2, Inns: 3, Runs: 36, Best: 18, Ave: 12, SR: 63.16, 100s: 0, 50s: 0
The very experienced Mirian Dodds finds herself in the squad again, despite terrible performances internationally. Her superb Letterman Trophy stands made sure that she books her spot in the 21 that will tour Sylestone. The right-hander is known for composure on the crease, but that has been the missing element in each of her three international test innings thus far. Something has to change for the 35-year-old, and quick.

[Bat] Fred Avent (28) - R Slow/R (Elesborough Everblades)
On debut
In his first selection to any Grearish national side, Fred Avent has been under the radar of the national selectors as the right-hander proved to be a decent partner to Kerry Clark in the middle of the batting line-up at Elesborough in the first-class season. Avent possesses decent strokeplaying abilities around the park, with a special knack of playing spinners pretty well. A lot will rest on his famed wristwork when he walks out into the middle in the WTC.

[Bat] Maggie Upshur (34) - L Medium/R (Grearish Railways)
On debut
Trying to debut for a national test side at the age of 34 might already be a lost cause for some, but not Maggie Upshur, who has spent her life working as a stationmaster for the Grearish Railways while also playing first-class cricket for them. Happy to slot in at number three or in the upper middle order, Upshur plays handy knocks despite her slightly bulky build. There is talk that she might be demoted down the order to make use of her power-hitting abilities, as Upshur is not likely to take too many singles.

[Bat] Eldridge Surprenant (24) - L Orthodox/L (Elesborough Everblades)
Mat: 1, Inns: 1, Runs: 189, Best: 189, Ave: 189, SR: 92.65, 100s: 1, 50s: 0
Vice captain of the black dolphins, Suprenant has been a regular face in the national side in the test format, and has turned into abit of a superstar especially after his blistering debut innings of 189 against Sylestone in the East-West Cup. The sublime straight drive from the 24-year old will be searching for the spotlight again along with very quick running between the wickets, one can safely assume, as the national side take on the World Test Challenge.

[Bat] Samuel Doucet (27) - L Slow/R (Glomridge Magpies)
On debut
Sammy Doucet from Glomridge suddenly finds himself knocking on the black dolphins' door after his individual brilliance brought Glomridge up to a position that wouldn't be utterly shameful, to say the least. While a debut in the tour of Sylestone itself looks a little unlikely in a crowded batting lineup, it would all change in a moment if the results are either too good, or too bad.

[Bat] Taylor Kincheloe (24) - R Medium/L (Manta Islanders)
Mat: 2, Inns: 3, Runs: 85, Best: 44, Ave: 28.33, SR: 54.49, 100s: 0, 50s: 0
A torrid domestic season almost put Taylor Kincheloe out of contention for the national squad, except for her brilliant leadership ability. Her domestic performance is by no means shabby, but more is expected from a player of her calibre. Kincheloe has been rather successful in leading the Grearish side across formats in the recent past, but pundits are under the impression that the load of leadership has crushed her batting form. Whatever it may be, Taylor must now step up her batting game internationally or keep her streak of wins going as the skipper.

[Bat] Dewitt Boswell (34) - L Fast/L (Atheburn Lions)
Mat: 1, Inns: 2, Runs: 53, Best: 53*, Ave: 53, SR: 91.38, 100s: 0, 50s: 1
With an international test fifty already under his belt, Dewitt Boswell has been decent on the international stage. Age not being on his side must have bogged him down, but Boswell may be selected into the first XI ahead of some debutants just based off of what he has to offer in terms of experience. He scores at a gentle pace and it would seem to the observer as if he is taking it easy out there, but Boswell is still the quiet workhorse that we're all familiar with.

[Wicketkeeper] Jennefer Gang (24) - R Offbreak/L (Elesborough Everblades)
On debut
Two young wicketkeepers on debut can be a great thing and a bad thing across a very fine line. Jennefer Gang is generally known as the better batsman among the two debutants, while doing a decent job behind the sticks as well. Possessing the ability to come in as an opener or in the middle order gives her greater selectability into the first XI, but she will have to keep up the good work with her gloves.

[Wicketkeeper] Logan Murdoch (25) - L Slow/R (Valgow Bulls)
On debut
You shall never (well, mostly not) need to worry about a missed stumping or a botched caught-behind with Logan Murdoch on wicketkeeping duties. The 25-year-old is famous for his lighting-fast glovework and quick thinking, while the constant chatter is an icing on the cake in situations where the opposition batters are trying to settle down into a rhythm. The unfortunate part is that his batting has the occasional difficulty to keep up with his prowess in other areas.

[All-Rounder] Dewayne Goolsby (33) - R Fast/L (Adenham Bears)
Mat: 2, Inns: 3, Runs: 25, Best: 21, Ave: 8.33, SR: 89.29, 100s: 0, 50s: 0
Mat: 2, Inns: 3, Overs: 35, Mdns: 2, Runs: 100, Wkts: 2, BBI: 2/43, BBM: 2/68, Ave: 50, Econ: 2.86, SR: 105

Goolsby has been the typical workhorse allrounder who chips in with important contributions with both bat and ball as the 33-year-old is almost guaranteed a spot in at least one of these tests. The team will, however, need the slog-expert to stay at the crease a little while longer as a high strike rate might be a little less important in tests than it is in limited overs cricket.

[All-Rounder] Leon Nethercott (20) - R Medium/L (Grearish Services)
On debut
20-year-old Nethercott has always been on the black dolphins' squad but could never quite make it into the national side after decent performances were produced by Goolsby when the hour came knocking. There isn't much that Nethercott can do better in this situation, honestly, because his domestic performances have all been of the highest quality. It is time for him to wait until Goolsby picks up a snag or fails to deliver. Either way, Nethercott should be seeing some first XI test action this time around.

[Bowl] Harrison Posner (29) - L Slow/L (Forsho Rangers)
On debut
[size=95]Bowler of the season in the domestic circuit this season, Posner has been an absolute threat to the opposition as he hid his viciousness behind the mysterious turn that he could achieve with the cherry. Rangers have been found lucky time and time again when Posner descended upon the opposition with his malice of mystery - the stock delivery, a doosra, a teesra, a knuckle ball and one that goes on with the arm. At least, that's what has been deciphered yet. Deception is key.


[Bowl] Jeffry Ohman (34) - L Fast/L (Atheburn Lions)
On debut
To imagine that a 34-year-old 'fast' bowler was the second-highest wicket-taker in the Letterman Trophy is difficult to imagine for most of us, but Mr. Ohman has proved it not only to be possible but in his case, highly probably. The lean man from Atheburn doesn't really have express pace as much he has swing, but it still might be difficult for him to break into the side unless there is a clear indication of help off the surface and in the conditions for pacers. But Oh-man! His superb bowling spells in the Letterman will never not be special!

[Bowl] Heriberto Boger (20) - L Fast/R (Adenham Bears)
Mat: 1, Inns: 1, Overs: 28, Mdns: 3, Runs: 100, Wkts: 3, BBI: 3/100, BBM: 3/100, Ave: 33.33, Econ: 3.57, SR: 56
A bit of a star fast bowler for the young generation, the left handed speedster bowls at a brisk pace, and owing to his height, it may be all too easy for the opposition to assume that they have time before the ball comes to them - except that said 'time' does not exist. The 20-year-old will hurry you in your crease, won't be shy of bowling you the extra bouncer and keep delivering in the corridor of uncertainty. Yet, all the fire is limited to his bowling - words aren't his forte.

[Bowl] Jacqueline Giorgi (28) - L Wrist/R (Adenham Bears)
Mat: 1, Inns: 1, Overs: 40, Mdns: 11, Runs: 104, Wkts: 4, BBI: 4/104, BBM: 4/104, Ave: 26, Econ: 2.6, SR: 60
Need to choke up the flow of runs? Worry not! The black dolphins have Giorgi! A chinaman isn't the most common kind of bowler to be found in international cricket, but Grearia can bost of two, out of which Giorgi is the senior one and will probably be getting the first nod into the team in any circumstance. Her proved qualities in containing run flow will come extremely handy in building pressure on the opposition even though wicket-tacking has been difficult for her.

[Bowl] Faith Daniele (20) - L Wrist/L (Manta Islanders)
On debut
Known as a bit of an expensive chinaman bowler, Faith has her sights set on taking wickets at any cost - quite literally. Even then, Kincheloe has turned to her when in need of wickets at the Manta state side. Coaches are of the opinion that she needs the right kind of handling from her skipper for her to shine - handling that she can very well expect from her own state-team captain even here at the national squad.

[Bowl] Jeanett Tunnell (31) - R Legbreak/L (Valgow Bulls)
Mat: 1, Inns: 2, Overs: 25, Mdns: 5, Runs: 56, Wkts: 1, BBI: 1/25, BBM: 1/56, Ave: 56, Econ: 2.24, SR: 150
A bit of variation her as Tunnell gives the captain the option to turn it away from the right hander, in contrast with the chinaman bowlers that the nation boasts of, in an otherwise wrist-spin heavy attack. Not very expensive as a bowler, Tunnell will be expected to keep the lid on the run scoring while someone tidies up the wickets from the other end.

[Bowl] Lyndon Pasternak (33) - R Fast/R (Grearish Services)
Mat: 1, Inns: 2, Overs: 36.2, Mdns: 16, Runs: 96, Wkts: 9, BBI: 6/52, BBM: 9/96, Ave: 10.67, Econ: 2.65, SR: 24.22[/size]
The absolute undisputed star of Grearish fast bowling, Pasternak has the best bowling figures of any Grearish bowler in modern times. A nine-wicket haul in his very first test has propelled him to a central role in the Grearish pace attack against the world in Test matches, and his domestic season reflects the same fact. All eyes on him!

CRICKETIEM DE BONDSAARI
The Sarian Cricket Team


Stadia


De Ovaalnationaal, Bondstad
Matchday One - Gruenberg in The Sarian
Ground Modifier: +4 - Capacity: 22, 300 - Ends: Senaat End (east), Pavillion End (west)

For three days, welcome to every batter's fantasy. Win the toss, get in and get a big score. The pitch offers nothing to seem or swing and the square boundary is short. And then the pitch will deteriorate and anything is on the cards.

Cricketgrond van Archipelbuurt ('Archipelbuurt'), Haaglanden
Matchday Two - Gruenberg in The Sarian
Ground Modifier: -1 - Capacity: 16, 980 - Ends: City End (east), Pavillion End (west)

A reputation for a good, balanced pitch - albeit with a moderately higher than average bias towards spin as the game progresses. Widely regarded as the prettiest pavillion in Saari cricket, in a distinctive Neo-Renaissance style.


Squad for Home Series versus Gruenberg

NB: Following the recent announcement from the MCC, the term Batter shall be used rather than Batsman.

Anders DJ Ruitdekker - Batter (Captain)
.:: he/him | Age: 32 | RHB | Right-arm off spin | Club: Kroningdam ::.

Limited overs Captain will also lead the team in test debut. Slightly impatient player in the longer format, who can sometimes be criticised for aiming for the boundaries a few overs too soon. Can bat at 3-5 but most comfortable at number five. Occasional off-spin.

Lucie M Snaijer - Batter
.:: she/her | Age: 25 | RHB | Left-arm medium | Club: Ghoberg ::.

Opening batter. Most at home in the longer format, with a penchant for defensive sweeps. Good at taking the shine off a new ball before stepping up a gear when required. Exceptionally quick runner.

Innocent W Kijeur - Batter
.:: he/him | Age: 29 | LHB | Slow left-arm orthodox | Club: Haaglanden ::.

A late bloomer who made his first class debut at 24 and hasn't looked back since. Originally an opening batsman but has found more success at the number three slot. One of those players who tends to make a big score or fall cheaply.

Max DP Spritzen - Batter
.:: he/him | Age: 21 | RHB | Right-arm leg break | Club: Bondstad ::.

Takes guts to open the batting at a young age, but has it is spades. Super competitive, probably shadow bats in his sleep. Weak on the leg side. Disaster in the slip cordon.

Melinde E Lijnuun - Batter
.:: she/her | Age: 25 | RHB | Right-arm medium | Club: Ghoberg ::.

Very orthodox batting style, and makes it work. Unfortunate tendency to get in, get to around thirty and then lose the wicket cheaply. Most frequently bats at the number three slot for Ghoberg, but that's a crowded position in this Saari team. Exceptionally good fielder.

Maeri Coelst - Batter
.:: she/they | Age: 28 | RHB | Right-arm leg break | Club: Kroningdam ::.

A very defensive batter who will play some of the least fluid shots you will ever see. But they do it effectively. Versatile in the batting order - has played anywhere from three to seven. Pretty decent leg break, if it is needed.

Marscha M DeSaari - Wicketkeeper-Batter
.:: she/her | Age: 31 | RHB | - | Club: Kroningdam ::.

Exceptional player in one-day cricket - albeit one who has been accused of being too cautious with the white ball. An accusation that is more of a compliment in a test team. Incredibly good at exploiting gaps in every fielding set-up. Dependable with the gloves, though certainly nothing special. Has batted pretty much exclusively at number three for Kroningdam, though Innocent Kijeur is seen as having a lock on the slot. Will have to acclimatise to a new position.

Jiera A Mahajan - Wicketkeeper
.:: she/her | Age: 24 | LHB | - | Club: Haaglanden ::.

The purists choice to handle the gloves, though a much less accomplished batter than DeSaari. Should be able to hold down an end better than she can, though does have an impressive arsenal of shots. While DeSaari could theoretically play as a specialist batter to make room, Mahajan is considered unlikely to feature in the series.

Wilfrid H Hendriks - All-rounder
.:: he/him | Age: 29 | LHB | Left-arm fast-medium | Club: Ghoberg ::.

Traditionally been seen as more of a bowler-who-can-bat, but has had a couple of seasons of disappointing figures with the ball whilst batting has notably improved. Penchant for trying to knick an extra run. Not a half-bad fielder.

Tomas HT Bietje - All-rounder
.:: he/him | Age: 29 | LHB | Right-arm fast-medium | Club: Bondstad ::.

Been in the international conversation for a while, but failed to make a splash in his first appearance at the T20 World Cup. Another allrounder who has graduated from bowler-who-can-bat, but is annoyingly difficult to get out. Can get very grumpy if things don't go his way.

Magdalene L Goedsmid - All-rounder
.:: she/her | Age: 22 | RBH | Right-arm off break | Club: Oostelund ::.

A true all-rounder who is equally accomplished with both bat and ball. Struggles to make things happen on an uncooperative pitch.

Oli JT Abaal - Bowler
.:: he/him | Age: 36 | RHB | Left-arm fast-medium | Club: Kroningdam ::.

Probably playing in first and last home test series. A veteran of the domestic game who has impressed in limited overs internationals. Incredibly talented at getting the wicket of fellow-left handers. Not too shabby with a bat, either. Most likely nightswatchmen.

Filip A Stormdoop - Bowler
.:: he/him | Age: 22 | RHB | Right-arm medium | Club: Wilaamstad ::.

Good medium paced bowling is a bit of a lost art, but Stormdoop keeps the flame alive. Very good at having runs of dot-balls before getting a wicket when the batter gets frustrated and plays a silly shot. A true number eleven with the bat - though bats at number ten for largely superstitious reasons.

Martine K Kloeten - Bowler
.:: she/her | Age: 20 | RHB | Right-arm fast | Club: Wilaamstad ::.

Exceptionally talented opening bowler. However, can struggle to make things happen with an older ball. Recurring elbow injury means she needs more rest than even most other quicks. Doesn't have the best reputation for dealing with pressure - but is still only twenty. Despite this, manages to be a veteran of the white ball team.

Winie H Smit - Bowler
.:: she/her | Age: 21 | LHB | Left-arm off spin | Club: Kroningdam ::.

Fine but not amazing spin option. Fantastic sweeper in the field and surprisingly competent with the bat. Known to struggle against batters who have a strong front foot.

...out of my window, I see life running by...

After what feels like an age - and, in pandemic years, it certainly has been one, or several - Test cricket is back and I'm quite happy about it ^_^
As I write it's five minutes before midnight and I need to be awake early tomorrow, so although I've proofread this a few times it's entirely possible that some placeholder text remains, and/or bits that don't make sense (although how would anyone notice, heh) - I will be looking back over in the morning, but in the meantime feel free to get in touch if you spot something that looks off.
The pre-match RP for the first Test against the Licentian Isles will be out tomorrow morning as well, as will the XI and ground information - I'm rewriting all my ground descriptions for this year so we'll see how this pans out for the season!
The very best of luck to Licen, along with Kry, Syle, and Ko, and to everyone else involved in the season - the sheer volume of matches is really pleasing, and even a little overwhelming, to see when I look back at what Test cricket on Nationstates was like when I began four years ago, and hopefully this proves a memorable and fruitful season for everyone. :3

INTRODUCTION AND HISTORY

The Plough Islands are a 200km long chain of seven major islands in the Celestial Ocean, several days' travel northwest of the nearest inhabited land on Nova Calania, characterised by blankets of mist hiding gentle slopes of pine forest and sedge, broken up by pastures and fields of wheat and oats between granite outcrops. The Commonwealth of the Plough Islands that controls them is a socialist one-party state, run on Marxist-Leninist principles and influenced by two centuries of British colonialism, characterised by a hardy and iron-willed people whose manner is nevertheless gentle and whose accent lilts precisely from cricket to communism, while taking several detours on the way there.
The Plough Islands Cricket Association has itself taken several detours since they last hosted a Test match in May of 2020; then, the Foxes had yet to play an official Global Cricket Federation sanctioned One Day International, and they have since taken part in two World Trophy tournaments, reaching the semi-finals in Liventia and the Super Eight stage in Gruenberg. The Young Foxes have also taken part in two 20-over world championships, reaching the final in Grearia before losing to a strong Ko-oren side.
The biggest changes have arguably taken place outside the boundary rope; the Association was a founder member of the Anaian Board of Cricket, established in the wake of the Declaration of Foxchester to deepen cricketing relationships between that document's signatories, and particularly with frequent sparring partners Krytenia and the Ko-orenites. There has already been a one-off One Day International tri-series between the three nations, held to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the independence of the Plough Islands, and it is hoped that after the Test series concludes a fully-fledged regional limited-overs championship can be established featuring more nations from all around Anaia.
For the immediate future, though, excitement within the islands will be building for the first Test matches in sixteen months, and the first international cricket of any description on the islands since the 60th Anniversary series. The game of cricket was adopted by the Socialist movement as a key pillar of national pride and identity as part of their struggle towards a communist society, and the home matches against the Licentian Isles and Ko-oren will be watched by packed crowds, with thousands more of the Foxes' friends and comrades following the progress of Kevin Laing's team in Krytenia and in Sylestone. While the GCF might not be too much larger in absolute terms for including the Plough Islands, there are few observers who would deny that since 2018 multiversal cricket has been that little bit more colourful for including a small, fiercely proud country in green and amber.

CREST AND COLOURS

The Plough Islands continue to wear traditional white for Test matches, although the current outfits, introduced at the start of 2020, feature a jacquard print of the islands themselves woven into the body, and dark green breathable panels under the arms and down the side of the trousers. This will likely be the last Test season that the Foxes will be wearing these popular and much-loved kits; the Red Flag co-operative of Redcliff that produces them is believed to be working on updated designs for 2022 and beyond.
The crest on the shirts remains the shield from the coat of arms adopted by the Association in 1992, combining the Plough constellation that gave the islands their name in the 18th century with the national colours of green and amber. The two foxes - representing first-class cricket (red) and limited-overs (white) - have their tails nowed to represent the unity of the team and the country, in the spirit of socialism and shared struggle, ready to take on the rest of the multiverse.

PREVIEW: REVIVED LICENTIANS A CHALLENGE FOR AWAKENING FOXES
by Denis Wormwood, Sporting Correspondent, in Sutton

The slow grinding of the wheels of international cricket has thrown up more complications than usual this time for the Plough Islands Cricket Association, starting with the Tests themselves; while plans for series against old friends (and now Anaian friends) Ko-oren and Krytenia have survived, efforts to tour New Lunenburg have fallen through while a proposed visit from Audioslavia was ultimately scuttled by what Cde Premier Dale Piper, when announcing the Foxes' calendar for this year, referred to as "something lost in translation between our representatives".
But no matter, for international cricket is here once more, and for most of Kevin Laing's team this will simply be a matter of cleaning off the rust and reacquainting themselves with their teammates. The passage of time has not been without its casualties, though, and some dynamics have changed during the sixteen months since the Plough Islands last played at this level. The primary concern is at the top of the order; coach Lourens Hendricks and the selection committee were unable to fully resolve the questions posed by the absence of Matthew Davy for most of 2020, with Colin Williams and Andrew Barrett both having stints opening alongside Graeme Holt.
With the Redcliff left-hander - who remains the only Plough Islander to score a double century in Tests - having effectively retired from international cricket and played just one first-class match in 2021, the Foxes may well need to start from scratch. The series against the Licentian Isles may be something of an audition for potential openers; Davy and Barrett are both expected to be candidates, with the Bradford pair of Ilya Postukhov and Brett Scarbeck also under consideration. Another prominent name not to feature is Colin McCarthy, who has not played since returning home early from Gruenberg with an injured thigh, and while Andrew Baxter provides more than sufficient firepower by himself the opportunity may arise for other pace bowlers to prove themselves.
They will likely need all their firepower to contain a team that promises much on their return to multiversal cricket. The Royal Licentian Cricket Association - the game in those isles seemingly yet to undergo the transition from elite pastime to recreation for the masses that it has in ours - has a long history in Global Cricket Federation competition, with Jonathan Harris's side the latest embodiment of a history that goes back to their Test debut against old friends Apox in 2013. The Licentians have played twenty-nine Tests, qualifying for the end of season tournament in 2016 as one of the top four teams over the course of the year. Unfortunately, the national side has been in abeyance since an innings defeat to Gruenberg in that tournament, and so come to the Foxdale Sports Club as something of an unknown quantity, but the team announced for the match has a strong emphasis on pace bowling and the raw speed of right-armer Marsaili MacIndoe may prove deadly even on a damp Bradford wicket.
If they can settle quickly, though, and mesh together as we have come to expect from the Foxes under Laing and Hendricks, there will be few forces in the multiverse that can match the Plough Islands at the peak of their powers and driven onwards by a hundred and forty thousand of their comrades. The talent available to the Association runs deep, their collective skills are broad, and their effort in the spirit of socialism is capable of reaching ever greater heights, as friends and foes from across the cricketing world have found time and again. And there is a more than likely chance that their collective endeavour will be rewarded by this time next week.

Team for First Test vs Milchama


Howard TATTON (HM Tatton)
Batsman : Right-handed
Age: 27
State: Beck SCC

Schneller is an excellent one-day opener, able to settle quickly into his stride and stroke the ball all over the pitch. Can be a little too exuberant though, and too often loses his wicket trying to turn a sprinting start into a fast fifty. Usually good for at least twenty runs, though.

Ian CARLTON (IT Carlton)
Batsman : Left-handed
Age: 25
State: Abbia Mersa SCC

Carlton is a patient run-scorer, happy to play defensive rather than smash the ball around the park. It may not be the most exciting way to play, but it is effective. More difficult to remove than Cinzano Bianco.

Edward FENN (EL Fenn)
Batsman : Right-handed
Age: 22
State: West Mercia SCC

The golden boy of Krytenian cricket, Ed Fenn loves the game. He's a supreme technician, preferring placement and accuracy to pure arm strength, looking to punish any gaps in the field. Also a top-notch fielder.

Ryan WATLING (RJ Watling)
Batsman : Left-handed
Age: 27
State: Central Mercia SCC

What Watling lacks in finesse and shot selection, he makes up for in sheer brute force. He cleaves at the ball like he's brandishing a broadsword, and especially loves to thump shorter deliveries into the stands. Not the best player of spin, though.

Andrew TAYLOR (ARD Taylor)
Batsman : Right-handed
Age: 26
State: East Mercia SCC

Aggressive without being showy, Taylor prefers to find a gap and nail the ball through it as hard as he can. Expect the umpire to get involuntary trembles from signalling fours.

Wesley KOSTA (WS Kosta)
Wicket-keeper : Right-handed
Age: 29
State: Emberton SCC

Reliable behind the stumps - though Bradley Grafton has the drop on him in that regard - Kosta is the better batsman of the two, hence his selection ahead of his more unpredictable rival.

Lynton SAXON (LR Saxon)
CAPTAIN
All-rounder : Rght-handed : Right arm pace
Age: 32
State Team: Emberton SCC

Has a cricketing brain to be feared; sometimes gives off an air of being "surrounded by idiots" when field placements don't work the way he intends. Saxon's batting style leans towards keeping the ball low, looking to make the fielders work to prevent the four. With the ball, Saxon leans towards inviting the edge, tending to bowl a little short of length.

Gavin UDALL (GM Udall)
All-rounder : Right-handed : Right arm pace
Age: 29
State Team: Overa SCC

An aggressive talent with either bat or ball in hand, Udall is sure to create excitement of some description, whether that be bowling 90mph artillery shells down the track or crunching a misplaced delivery into the stands.

Martyn MIRANDINO (MJL Mirandino)
Bowler : Right-handed : Finger (off) spin
Age: 25
State Team: Overa SCC

Mirandino is a spin bowler who can actually bat a little, and at a reasonable rate too. Has a nasty turn to his off-break, though bowls deliveries that feel slow even for spin.

Odell LOVATOVIC (OP Lovatovic)
Bowler : Right-handed : Right arm swing
Age: 23
State Team: Newland SCC

Lovatovic loves nothing more than a cloudy day and a white ball in his hand. Excels at getting the ball to move both ways. Batting isn't his strong suit, but then again that's not why he's in the team.

Brigham HILL (BY Hill)
Bowler : Left-handed : Wrist (leg) spin
Age: 25
State Team : Atrebla SCC

Potentially GCF's best Mormon. Hill is an absolute spin demon, foxing some of the world's best in the World Trophy and now looking to do the same in the long-form game. Unfortunately, he can't bat for toffee.

Roster & Permissions

Squad: PA Deisler (LHB, c), EME Broimbles (RHB, OB), PPPPPPP Fizbin (RHB, RFM), BPGV Grovan (LHB, RFM), ZVEU Hengtridan Jr. (RHB, WK), CRFQ Hmnff (RHB), NQX Honk (RHB), IQGZ Keitocronkidrex (RHB, RFM), SIT Qilairana (LHB, OB), TIMTAM Renkauer (RHB, RF), QD Skejjibox (RHB, OB), PM Sthwlorq (RHB, OB), CCLOG Thchthaarheq (RHB, OB), HAYW Tumcoweiss (LHB, SLA), JNT Tyrkkekkekklukkekklukekk (LHB, LBG), KZY Uvaevaluvae (LHB, WK), LCAS Yowoax (LHB, SLA)

The 17-player squad sent to The Sarian reflects a number of dominant tendencies in the current Gruenberger set-up: a strong deference to all things past, captain Pitkin Deisler getting his way, and an Enchante-shaped hole in the middle order. The 1st Test will see the first Gruenberger Test side not to contain Benny Enchante, aside from those he missed during his “textgate” suspension. Given the extent to which he carried the team’s batting for many years, it’s impossible to predict how the team will develop in his absence.

Top order

Pitkin Deisler is now the senior man in the team: captain, longest serving and most experienced player, with multiple Test hundreds to his name. He first came into the side as an attractive strokeplaying white ball opener but has since developed into a rounded all-formats batsman. As captain, he’s a determined leader of men if not the astute captain that Zambuimmi Hengtridan was. In the field he’s a very dependable slip catcher.

His opening partner will almost certainly be Compoundinterest Hmnff, a short, technically correct nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnGut tribesman who’s more naturally defensive than Deisler but capable of counterpunching, particularly against spin. With Test hundreds to his name, he proved his worth the last time Gruenberg played Tests but didn’t feature in their most recent white ball plans.

Plumbert Sthwlorq debuted with a fifty in the last Test Gruenberg played before reentering isolation, but has remained a steady contributor on the domestic circuit. He’s something of a stodgy blocker and swayer to pace, who transforms werewolf-like into a slashing beast against spin.

Middle order

Ettexinor Broimbles shook off the “poor man’s Benny Enchante” to prove himself a “pretty wealthy, five bedrooms and a little place in the country, man’s Benny Enchante” over the last couple of years where he has been by far the most consistent bat in the lineup, to such a point that everyone forgot his introduction to Test cricket had been pretty uninspiring. The best fielder, and a worthy trier with the ball.

Nurples Honk has been the form batsman in Gruenberger domestic cricket in recent years, and reproduced flashes of that form in the ODI Trophy. Known for his habit of yelling “YOU’VE JUST BEEN HONKED!” every time he hits a boundary, Honk opens in white ball but in red ball will be a middle order player.

Chthchibvuel Thchthaarheq was no one’s pick for a Test cap a year ago, but his form during the T20 Championship victory was undeniable, reeling off fifty after impossible fifty. If he gets a game he’ll be one of the older debutants, having played his domestic trade for over a decade as a reliable middle order batsman and part-time offie.

Wicket keepers

Zambuimmi Hengtridan, Jr. is a majestic young talent who’s mostly disappointed to date. It was inevitable he’d be included on the tour as his wicket-keeping ability (ability in the sense that he owns a pair of gloves and won’t drop every chance, just most of them) and good fielding skills in a team mostly full of clay hands makes him the ideal 12th man.

Hopefully that won’t be tested, because Kahunk Uvaevaluvae is the other experienced name in the squad. He’s never been a great Test batsman and spent as much time at 8 as at 7, but he has Test hundreds to his name. More than that, he has some of the slickest gloves in Test cricket, genuinely beautiful standing up to the spinners.

Spinners

Moreso than Benny Enchante, arguably, it’s Azzawozzawoowizbitz Telliflikkiflarknon’s absence that will be most keenly felt when it comes to the balance of the side. The lack of a seam bowling all rounder was a problem in white ball, and it’s even more evident in red ball. Deisler’s dislike of medium pace options means there’s no place for Gezzalqin, either.

Instead, they’re calling back Salajaff Qilairana, a frustratingly inconsistent but admittedly experienced – relative to most of the squad – batting all rounder. Initially picked as a spinner, his averages in both areas steadily crept up, and he lost his white ball spot.

Gruenberg tends to produce a lot of spinning all rounders. The latest model is Hraffinthroquadilamjamhampamsamtamrambamattawakkipurrheliomansthophthanes Tumcoweiss, a hard-hitting stylist who impressed with his maturity despite his young age in the white ball tournaments.

Both Qilairana and Tumcoweiss have lacked bite with their bowling. More attacking options are found with Quouodan Skejjibox, who emerged as the clear number one spinner during the white ball tournaments. Tall and with a jerky action (he wears long sleeves even in sweltering heat) he’s proved canny in use of variation and possesses a beautiful arm ball.

Lemonzesty Yowoax can probably thank the spin-friendly Sarian pitches for his recall after being dropped. Gruenberg’s most experienced Test bowler at this stage, the bouncy, attacking left armer has seemed to lose his way in recent years, but retains his magical drift when he gets the rev count up over 3000.

Jett Tyrkkekkekklukkekklukekk has made the squad as an attacking leg spin option and punchy lower middle order hitter, but he’s probably too inconsistent to be picked at this stage.

Seamers

The hope was that iiPiqup Fizbin would follow on from iiPriyuff Uglaxx. The logic seemed to be they’re both Gelzien and ???. Fizbin has not looked Uglaxx’s equal, in truth (but then who could)? Tall and rail thin, he doesn’t swing it much but relies on a staple back-of-a-length stock ball and sharp off-cutters on dry pitches, along with a steepling bouncer.

Brigveger Grovan has led the attack in recent years and done so very dependably. A handy bat and doughty fielder, he’s most known for his mastery of reverse swing, but will probably take the new ball along with Fizbin.

Transportflowmap Renkauer was an MVP candidate when Gruenberg won the T20 World Championship, but whether four overs of explosive pace can be translated to carrying the attack in Test cricket is a wholly different matter. It’s… Keitocronkidrex, a traditional up-and-down seamer with consistency but not pace, is the sole reserve seamer.

OOC note: Unfortunately, there are some inconsistencies going back on the player and staff aging front that I can’t easily reconcile. I have therefore decided to have 2 years pass in my timeline between GCF seasons rather than 1 – this doesn’t create perfect alignments with the World Cup or IFCF calendars of football or anything like, that, but its less messed up. It also means I’ll need to backdate my previous participation – GCF10 – to approximately the same time as Euraleague Season 44 in football (a lot more recent than when GCF10 happened in real life!). This calendar will fall behind my main calendar with further seasons but it’s the best I can do. It also means all of my players and staff are now 4 years older than they were in GCF10. I will give ages below for the entire season – the first year will be MDs 1-6, the second year MDs 7-12. As an example, here is how Euran batsman Cameron Lawson will age:
30 – S44 GCF10
31 - S45 GCF 10
32 - S46 GCF 11

Touring teams should plan thoroughly for facing the spin bowling of local man Greg Lark, even if he is 39. He regularly wins games for his club here, taking over 1,000 first class wickets in a two-decade long career, and could be a deadly proposition to bat against on a fourth- or fifth-day pitch. The stadium itself is surprisingly flat for a big ground like Brigham, which partially explains how the middle can end up like a dustbowl in hot weather. Famously, Eura bowled Liventia out for 70 on this pitch thanks to the magic of Greg Lark, and they will be hoping to do so again on their return to test cricket. Selected for 1st Test v Liventia

Brigham Oval – Brigham - Brigham CC - 90,000 - 0 – This huge arena is hallowed ground for Euran cricket and is probably the nation’s most balanced Test pitch. Its gargantuan banks of safe standing terraces split over two tiers are unusual to say the least, but also representative of the huge popularity of cricket in the region and the boisterous fans who turn up. Make no mistake, in terms of noise, this is the most intimidating venue in the country. The pitch is of a good quality and usually slightly green, making it fertile ground for bowlers (especially in overcast conditions) but usually a firm enough batting wicket for good batsmen to score on. Liventia have better history here but its still a tough ground to visit. Selected for 2nd Test v Liventia

Other grounds will be published shortly.

Players retired since Eura’s last appearance in test cricket (GCF10)
Name - Age - ECC club - Bats - Bowls - Playing style notes

The coaching staff (including head coach Michael Overdale) mostly remain, but the following players have retired:

Matt Leech – 37/38 during GCF10 - Spartans - Right - Right Arm Med – Leech was for a while the most aggressive of the upper order batsmen in the Euran side with excellent technique but also a vulnerability to leg spin and spin in general. He was the most capable bowler of the non-bowling specialists and has taken wickets at Test level. Leech was a real fighter who defied expectations to compete and was unsurprisingly the biggest sledger on the team. Now a member of the coaching team.

Tom Grant – 32/33 during GCF10 - Holdenberg - Right - Right Arm Fast Med – Former vice-captain who became a cult hero in Eura due to his bombastic personality and fearsome performances with bat and ball. He racked up an impressive record in Tests and international club cricket despite the circumstances of Euran cricket in the years leading up to GCF8/9 in which he spent his prime. Grant was sometimes careless when batting but a serious threat if allowed to get in, a powerful batsman who could score for fun and was very handy in T20 and ODI formats. Grant was also equally menacing as a bowler due to a skillful ability to get swing and seam movement in varied conditions, making him key to unsettling high quality batsmen due to his determination and skill in long, exhausting spells.

Tim Carpenter – 33/34 during GCF10 - Capital - Right - Right Arm Slow – Carpenter was an experienced wicket keeper and widely considered one of the team’s most important leaders, despite never being made captain or vice-captain. He was also very capable as a batsman too, particularly when batting aggressively and slogging a quick 50, though not quite as threatening as his predecessor Jeremy Davis.

Andy Harrison – 34/35 during GCF10 – Capital – Right – Right Arm Fast – A classic hard hitting seamer, Harrison was pacey and tall, extracted maximum bounce from hard pitches and gained surprisingly good movement off the seam. Like Folkstone he sometimes struggled in unfriendly conditions and leaked more runs than Folkstone or Grant regardless. He could be an intimidating prospect for batsmen who struggle against short balls but was manageable otherwise for top class batsmen.

Layton Webber – 28 at the time of GCF10 - Callodown - Right Arm Off Spin – Originally a replacement for Nick Fodrell who only played in GCF10 and was unimpressive. He decided to retire early from international duty once Eura opted to skip GCF11 and is not thought to be aiming for a comeback.

Squad
Name - Age - ECC club - Bats - Bowls - Playing style notes

Batsmen

Cameron Lawson – 34 (MD1-6), 35 (MD7-12) - Harther - Left - Left Arm Med – Lawson debuted in GCF8 and suffered a very difficult start to life as an international cricket. Things did not improve much as GCF9 and GCF10 came and went. But he grew as a player since Eura’s last foray into test cricket and is now a senior figure as Eura return to the fold. He has overcome the consistency issues of his youth and shown an ability to see off long periods of pace bowling at first class level. He’s strongest playing off his pads and cutting and has a terrifically strong defence forced onto him by years of failures. He’s less reliable pushing down the ground or trying to do anything special but has the judgement to play to his strengths.

Andrew Elland - 39 (MD1-6), 40 (MD7-12) - Brigham - Right - Right Arm Off Spin – Elland might be 39 (and one of a handful of Euran players who has been around since the beginning of their time in test cricket) but he’s still a top class, flashy batsman with a prestigious history, including a famous double century in that test against Liventia. He was Eura's most naturally talented player with the bat and still carries an important role in the team even if this will certainly be his last season of test cricket. He remains highly capable against spin but a bit more susceptible against real pace and bounce.

Liam Tunbridge - 38 (MD1-6), 39 (MD7-12) - Brigham - Right - Right Arm Med – Tunbridge is a similar player to Elland but has always been more functional and indisputably the best batsman in Euran history, with a cooler head and little ego. He’s the most likely of top four to go for big shots and is physically imposing but also a very intelligent player who can bat out long spells if needed. Its this flexibility and brainpower that made him a natural pick as captain for GCF10, but he gave up leadership of the team during Eura’s recess from test cricket to allow him to focus on prolonging his batting career.

Ewan Dodd (Vice-captain) - 31 (MD1-6), 32 (MD7-12) - Harther - Right - Right Arm Slow - A true attrition batsman who will simply defend, defend, defend, and then maybe defend some more. His low scoring rate should not be taken as an excuse to ignore his precise, refined defensive technique and its value in a modern game where most players play more white ball than red ball cricket. Dodd is especially useful on slow pitches and was recently appointed vice captain after Tim Carpenter confirmed he would not make himself available for selection and had chosen to retire.

Philip Waring - 25 (MD1-6), 26 (MD7-12) - Capital - Right - Right Arm Slow - A stocky middle order batsman and a top talent who was very young during GCF10, Waring’s time has come. He has made the number 4 slot his own with his fluent technique and formidable first-class average of 53.56, although he is not set to play in Directus with the experience of Elland and Tunbridge and the defensive talents of Dodd likely to be prioritized. Waring will likely return in the second test against Liventia and there will be a lot of excitement at that prospect in the Euran sporting press.

Marvin Raleigh - 28 (MD1-6), 29 (MD7-12) - Harther - Left - Right Arm Slow – Eura’s number 5 batsman during GCF10 is a solid, orthodox middle order batsman who can turn up the scoring rate and put pressure on the bowling team once the new ball has been worn down. However, he does have a habit of getting out on his legs and past them, meaning early batting collapses are usually followed by the new ball seaming between bat and pad and into his off stump. This weakness means that for now he’s out of the starting XI in most games. But if he gets in and stays in? Then he can do some real damage.

Huw Wallace – 21 (MD1-6), 22 (MD7-12) – Directus – Left – Right Arm Med – The youngest and least experienced of the currently selected batsmen, Wallace is the only one of the unit not to have been selected in a previous GCF squad. He is an unproven quantity at international level but is highly rated by the coaching staff and will almost certainly be given a chance at some point in Eura’s upcoming test matches.

All Rounders and Wicket Keepers

Shaun Folkstone (Captain) - 36 (MD1-6), 37 (MD7-12) - Harther - Right - Right Arm Fast - Eura's best hope when they first got going and he was still the star by the time of GC10. At 36 he is now into the twilight of his career, but excellent fitness levels have kept him competitive and he has become the natural choice for the captaincy. Folkstone Started his career purely as a bowler but some spectacular batting performances in Tests transformed him into an all-rounder partner for the now retired Tom Grant. He has the ability to score big runs as a batsman if Eura need them, thriving when under pressure, but his true calling is as a leading bowler despite stats often indicating otherwise. Blistering pace (the only Euran who bowls consistently over 90mph) and his accuracy with line and length make him a difficult prospect to bat against, but on pitches unfavourable to pace bowling he usually has to take on a defensive role.

Freddie Howard-King – 23 (MD1-6), 24 (MD7-12) – Borderlands – Right - Right Arm Fast Med – Regarded by many as a natural successor to Tom Grant, Freddie is a powerful batsman and ferocious bowler of large stature at 6ft 6in in height. But he is inexperienced in international cricket, and therefore expectations must be set at a reasonable level.

Alec Wright – 19 (MD1-6), 20 (MD7-12) – Spartans – Left – Right Arm Slow – Possibly the most exciting young prospect in the squad, Wright has won the first-choice spot as wicketkeeper at just 19, making him noticeably younger than the rest of the first team. His career has been short but impressive – he averaged 70.49 (!) in the most recent Euran domestic first-class season and will look to imitate that form in test cricket, though surely, he won’t get near those kind of numbers lower in the order and against international class bowlers.

Will Mandrake – 27 (MD1-6), 28 (MD7-12) - Directus - Right - Right Arm Slow – Mandrake was only a replacement back in the day and he still is now. A decent middle-order batsman and a competent wicketkeeper with a strong first-class record but limited test experience. Unlikely to play in the Liventia tests.

Bowlers

Greg Lark – 39 (MD1-6), 40 (MD7-12) – Directus – Left – Left Arm Spin – Lark was the anorak’s choice for Eura’s key player until GCF8, where he utterly mauled Liventia in the famous (or infamous if you're from that country) "Euracide" test in Directus. He is the most intelligent player in the side and the most reliable even at the grand old age of 39. Years of bowling on Eura’s dry eastern and humid southwestern wickets has made him a deadly opponent even for top level batsmen, and he could do a lot of damage in the Directus (eastern, home ground) and Brigham (southwestern) tests against Liventia. Lark is unorthodox for a left arm spinner in that he can spin both to off and leg effectively. The “Duke of Directus” is most dangerous on dry pitches against boxed in batsmen looking to score runs - the worst thing you can do against Lark is attack him on the fifth day.

Oscar Greenwood – 32 (MD1-6), 33 (MD7-12) – Spartans – Right – Right Arm Fast Med – Greenwood was one of Eura’s first choice bowlers in GCF10 and remains so, a fine seamer who had enjoyed a decent GCF9 beforehand. In home tests he can take advantage of the bowling conditions of wetter southern and western wickets but is a good enough player to do damage away from home as well.

Seb Haynes - 27 (MD1-6), 28 (MD7-12) - Harther - Right Arm Fast – Haynes is a potentially deadly swing bowler in the mould of former Euran test player and now bowling coach Daniel Aldair, just with extra pace added into the mix. He debuted briefly in GCF9 and is now moving towards his prime, with one of the best averages for a pace bowler in Euran domestic cricket

Rhys Higgins – 29 (MD1-6), 30 (MD7-12) – Borderlands – Left – Left Arm Fast Med – A real headache at club level on green southwestern pitches, troubling all kinds of batsmen with a controlled demeanour and difficult to read seam bowling. Unfortunately Higgins has slightly fallen out of favour since previous Euran test squads were fielded, but he could still get into the side if one of the currently selected bowlers loses form.

Neil Stroud – 24 (MD1-6), 25 (MD7-12) – Brigham - Right – Right Arm Spin – The latest in a long line of traditional right arm spinners. Nick Fodrell was good but not great, Layton Webber was poor – Stroud is not defined yet, having never played international cricket before. He’s got the talent though to be a decent player and is likely to be selected at Directus on its spinning wicket. His leg break bowling should prove a challenge for left handed batters in particular.

Latest selection

1st Test – Eura tour of Sajnur

Eura return to fielding a first choice XI for their initial outing in the tour of Sajnur, fielding two spinners to suit local conditions. This means Huw Wallace, Rhys Higgins and Will Mandrake drop out of the side for Liam Tunbridge, Alec Wright, Oscar Greenwood and Greg Lark, as well as Freddie Howard-King to accommodate second spinner Neil Stroud remaining in the side. Despite speculation that Ewan Dodd would return due to the conditions suiting his playstyle, Marvin Raleigh retains his place due to good form.

First XI

Cameron Lawson [Vice-captain]
Andrew Elland
Liam Tunbridge
Philip Waring
Marvin Raleigh
Alec Wright [Wicketkeeper]
Shaun Folkstone [Captain]
Oscar Greenwood
Seb Haynes
Greg Lark
Neil Stroud

Batting order

1. Cameron Lawson
2. Liam Tunbridge
3. Andrew Elland
4. Philip Waring
5. Marvin Raleigh
6. Alec Wright
7. Shaun Folkstone
8. Greg Lark
9. Oscar Greenwood
10. Seb Haynes
11. Neil Stroud

Bowling

Shaun Folkstone – opening bowler 1
Oscar Greenwood – opening bowler 2
Seb Haynes – pace rotation, likely to replace Folkstone/Greenwood after opening spell
Greg Lark – spin option 1, likely to be primary strike bowler as pitch wears down or in spinning conditions
Neil Stroud – spin option 2
Marvin Raleigh – utility spin option for rotating bowlers, unlikely to be used unless Eura are bowling a lot of overs or need to break a long partnership and want to unsettle the batters
Liam Tunbridge – utility medium pace option for rotating bowlers, unlikely to be used unless Eura are bowling a lot of overs or need to break a long partnership and want to unsettle the batters

Despite Popularity DCB Has No Plans For Pink Ball Cricket This Season

SCOTT CITY - Despite their immense popularity with Darmeni fans last season, the Darmeni Cricket Board has stated that it has no plans to hold any home Test matches under day/night conditions this season.

Capacity crowds attended Darmen's two pink ball matches last season, the first of which was the season opener against Ko-oren, held at the Larunda Gardens in Liverpool, with the touring side emerging victorious by 123 runs. The second day/night match was the all important final match of the inaugural Edwards-Winter Trophy, held at the Academy Stadium in Bloomer, in which Darmen won by just twelve runs to win the series 2-1.

DCB chairman Redmond Coburn cited concerns about playing cricket late in the evening during a period of time when local temperatures are already quite cool during the day. "I'm fairly certain that teams touring Darmen are not doing so to enjoy the sub-ten degree temperatures that a lot of our grounds have to offer in the late evening," stated Coburn.

While Darmen's domestic cricket season is scheduled during the warm summer months, the nature of international cricket means that the majority of international cricket is scheduled to occur over a period ranging from late fall to mid-spring.

Darmeni cricket fans however do not seem put off by the potential for cooler temperatures and have already begun campaigning for the final match of the season, against Gruenberg in Liverpool, to be held under lights.

This year's international cricket season begins with the 25,000 seat Capital Stadium in Scott City hosting GCF Test cricket newcomers Sharktail. Sigmund Winter's XI for the opening match of the season will include two new debutants: all-rounder Bud Bachmann and spin bowler Ilia Snelling.

Lineup for 1st Test vs. Sharktail: MS Brice, S Winter*, T Milligan, E Ready, W van der Zee, B Bachmann, J Beckett†, K Rosenfeld, C McAlister, D Myers, I Snelling

Darmen series schedule as Sharktail make their appearance in test cricket.


Sharktail will make its debut in test cricket traveling to Darmen for 2 match series there. The nation, which is known around the multiverse better in tennis and football, will make their debut in the cricket arena. So no high targets are set for this team this season.

Darmen, a country that is already well known in the cricket arena, agrees with the matchup of this series. Compared this two countries, it seems clear that the victory seems to belong to Darmen. However, Captain Sharktail, Ajay not denied any possibility they may able to make something in this match. He reminded all players not to think about the final decision that they may receive later.

"To me, the result is uncertain. We can lose, we can win, even a draw is possible. However, all that is only after this match is over, not now. What is important right now, just focus and follow the flow of the game."

Most all Sharktail players are cricketers who play as part timer. Almost all of these players have other jobs besides being athletes. It is quite difficult for them to focus only on this sport as this is not a popular sport and the tournaments organized are very limited. However, after the sport was officially taken as a sport in the attention of the National Sports Council few year ago, there were some positive developments such as the establishment of several specialized clubs, construction of several stadiums and special facilities for cricket as well as an increase in the number of professional players.

Even if the first start not going well, every step taken with continuous effort, it is not impossible cricket can remain in the sport of attention and may be able to be not far from sports like football, tennis and so on.

Sharktail will start the Darmen tour series at Capital Stadium in Scott City. The second match will held at East Hampton Road Ground, Augusta.

Milchamian Cricket Teams Sets Out on First Tour


After a surprising win over Sylestone at home in their international test debut, the Milchama Warriors are officially about to play GCF cricket. More importantly, though the Warriors are about to tour. Milchama has never played a road cricket match in its history, as the sport was mainly a local concern pre-Isolation. A rogue cricket lover had somehow gotten in during the Isolation and proceeded to teach the game to many across the nation. While cricket has not proved as popular as curling across Milchama it has still become a niche concern for many. So when Milchama came out of isolation the national cricket team was formed and started to practice. While Milchamian wickets are very interesting and there is some variety, the Warriors have never toured outside the country. Many are happy to see the cricket team actually play on the road as they travel to Krytenia for their ever road games in Milchamian history.

Krytenia, of course, was the scene of the most important sporting event in Milchamian history our first ever World Cup qualifying game when the Warriors played the Cyan-Blues in World Cup 23. That was a World Cup where the soccer was ahead of the press and no Milchamian press was at the game (OOC: I was a non-RPing noob my first WC) but it counts in the standings nonetheless so the Warriors are once again off to face their regional foes [Note: Krytenia are technically no longer in our region but we don't understand why so we're going with regional foes anyway].

Anywhoo here is the team managed by David Krumpton:

Likely lineup (in batting order):
Daniel Ross RHB
Philip de Franches LHB
Hayden March (c) RHB Part time off spin
Jerome Carney RHB
Ryan Cohen RHB Part time leg spin
Davy Carpenter LHB All around medium fast
Bethany Guerin WK
Tanya Pehrson RHB Opening fast bowler. Throws left
Kesem Prentice LHB Legspinner
Bonnie Woods RHB Opening fast bowler Throws right
Benny Huant RHB Double bowler. Generally bowls medium pace but will occasionally bowl off spin.

Others in the squad
Yohonatan Malliteen RHB. Middle order batter
Greg Cochran LHB Opening batter
Bryan Hampton LHB Off spinner
Wesley Hesch RHB Fast bowler
Denny Kischant RHB Fast bowler (somewhat bowling all rounder)
Efes Mahbet RHB Batter

Postby Sylestone » Thu Sep 30, 2021 10:31 pm

It’s been a little over four years since the Sylestone national cricket team first arrived on the shores of Ethane for their first-ever cricket game together; a test match, part of a three-test series, in the latter stages of the 11th World Test Challenge. Now, four years later, after two tests against Grearia and one against The Jovannic, the 12th World Test Challenge is just around the corner, with the Hawthorns scheduling a three-test home series against fellow Esportivans, The Grearish Union, played as part of the East-West Cup.

This will spell the beginning of the third instalment of the trophy, and the second to be held in Sylestone. Four years ago, talks began between the two nations pertaining to a possible cross-Esportiva trophy and after much debate, it was decided that Cricket Sylestone (CS) would host the inaugural edition. But after two multiformat competitions, including one in Grearia of which the likes of the Licentian Isles and Ethane were invited to participate in a quadrangular one-day series, the Grearish still hold the trophy, with Sylestone unable to bring it home once despite taking it to the very last game on each occasion.

After much consideration, this series was deemed “special”, with the opportunity to play a test series being heavily considered by both cricket board, Cricket Sylestone and Cricket Grearia. With CS hoping to be given the go-ahead to schedule a series against current affiliates Bollonich later on in the tournament, the two cricketing boards opted to play the series early on in the tournament as a lead-in to next year’s East-West Cup, with each test worth the three points they would typically be worth, with one point apiece in the case of a draw or tie.

With a test series against the Plough Islands scheduled in the latter stages of the Test Challenge, also on home soil, CS opted to schedule each of the five overall tests at different grounds. While Chamberley Cricket Ground, Betham Cricket Ground and Capital Stadium were all shoo-ins, the main discussions were about which grounds should get the gig for the remaining two tests. It was a tough decision, but eventually, the rights fell to Bolton Oval in Pesfield and Cleorough Stadium in Cleorough.

The three grounds selected for the Grearish tour are thus:

First Test: Sylestone vs The Grearish Union @ Chamberley Cricket Ground, Chamberley (+3)
Capacity: 86,000
About: Chamberley Cricket Ground (CCG) is one of the most prestigious cricket grounds in the nation, only behind Capital Stadium in Avondale in terms of size and quality. Many of Sylestone’s best current players also hail from Chamberley, creating an atmosphere that will undoubtedly support them every breath of the way, all the way down to the final ball on the final day. The pitch itself is generally a batting haven, although as the days pass cracks can, and will, appear, of which will favour both spin and pace bowling alike.

Second Test: Sylestone vs The Grearish Union @ Bolton Oval, Pesfield (+4)
Capacity: 50,000
About: Well known across the nation for being a batters’ paradise, the groundskeeper at Bolton Oval will be putting in his utmost to ensure that quality bowling will be deserved, particularly as the pitch itself wears for the final couple of days. In line with most Sylestonean pitches, it will favour spin over pace bowling, although there will be barely anything in it for the majority of the first three or four days.

Third Test: Sylestone vs The Grearish Union @ Cleorough Stadium, Cleorough (-2)
Capacity: 57,500
About: After playing at two batter-friendly grounds in the opening two tests, the third and final test will be played at one of Sylestone’s most spin-friendly grounds, Cleorough Stadium. It has tiny boundaries, only 60 metres in length, but will favour spin bowling right from the very first ball and only increase throughout the match.


Finally, for the squad. After much deliberation, an 18-player squad was selected for the three tests, one which appears to err on the defensive side, with the side not limited overs superstars such as Lachlan Cocrine, and instead going for players who have a much calmer temperament, such as Samuel Creln and Jonah Appleby.


STAFF

Coach: Jake Fiedler (M) - Age 41
Batting Coach: Sandra Morton (F) - Age 38
Bowling Coach: George Byron (M) - Age 56
Fielding Coach: Daniel Michael (M) - Age 47


OPENERS

Name				Age		Gender		Batting Hand	Bowling Hand	Bowling Style		Domestic First Class Side
Luke Tiati (c)(+) 28 M L N/A N/A Suffolk (SYL Image)
Samuel Creln 29 M L L Unorthodox South Sylestone (SYL Image)

Alyssa Fihelly 20 F R R Leg Spin Central Sylestone (SYL Image)
Lachlan Edwards 20 M R R Leg Spin Manta Islanders (GRU Image)

Luke Tiati and Samuel Creln will be expected to play at least two of the three games as the Sylestonean openers, being two experienced players on the domestic front and having seemingly eternal patience. It helps that Tiati is also Sylestone’s most prolific wicketkeeper, freeing up another specialist position in the Sylestonean batting order. As well as taking the gloves, the 28-year-old will also captain the side after Daniel Fomleya, the previous captain, handed it over to him for this test season. He will likely play the aggressor in the opening partnership, with Creln hanging back and getting his innings going, but will face stiff competition from Alyssa Fihelly and Lachlan Edwards as the backup openers. Fihelly plays a similar role to Creln, while Edwards is more likely to get a game down the order, with a slightly more aggressive mindset.
Edwards is also an able leg-spinner, who can serve in the second spinner role, while Fihelly can also bowl the same variety. However, she is far less accurate and is mainly only a part-time bowler, while Samuel Creln’s left-arm unorthodox is only used in the direst of circumstances.


BATTERS

Name				Age		Gender		Batting Hand	Bowling Hand	Bowling Style		Domestic First Class Side
Daniel Fomleya 34 M L L Orthodox Chicaster Clarets (GRU Image)
Jonah Appleby (+) 27 M R N/A N/A Central Sylestone (SYL Image)
Zachary Charlton 30 M L L Medium Adenham Bears (GRU Image)
Chloe Anderson 23 F L L Unorthodox South Sylestone (SYL Image)

Peter Lenton 33 M R R Medium Capital (SYL Image)
Simon Monteane 25 M R R Off Spin Chicaster Clarets (GRU Image)

Lots of familiar names are present in this middle-order batting lineup, with the likes of limited overs captain Daniel Fomleya being present, alongside naturally aggressive batter Chloe Anderson, at only 23 years of age and Simon Monteane, a regular opener in the limited overs formats. However, the side certainly has some of Sylestone’s more patient batters, as you would expect on the test arena, with the likes of Jonah Appleby and Zachary Charlton just two of them. The former is almost solely a longer-form batter, with the ability to completely grind down an opposition team, while Charlton is slightly more fluent, but can go all-out defence if the need is there. Fomleya’s in the same boat as Charlton, as two very like-for-like players, while Anderson, Peter Lenton and Monteane will look to play a more aggressive role in the lower middle order.
Being a backup wicketkeeper for Luke Tiati, Jonah Appleby will not be found bowling, but almost all of the other batters in this lineup can bowl a bit. Chloe Anderson bowls quite attacking left-arm unorthodox spin, turning it both ways, but is also subject to the occasional bad ball that should be put away. Charlton and Monteane are rarely used in their crafts, while Lenton has been given the ball on the international stage before, and even took a wicket against Garbelia in the second ODI World Trophy. Vice-captain Daniel Fomleya can also bowl a little bit of tight orthodox spin, and is there to tie up an end if need be.


ALL ROUNDERS

Name				Age		Gender		Batting Hand	Bowling Hand	Bowling Style		Domestic First Class Side
Liam Afosha 29 M R R Off Spin New Gloucester (SYL Image)

Jack Martin 21 M L L Orthodox Glomridge Magpies (GRU Image)

Two very capable players who have each played tests before, Liam Afosha and Jack Martin will be going head-to-head for the all-rounders’ spot in the Sylestonean lineup - a highly sought after position. Both are certainly capable players and may even be able to be in the team together, although unlikely considering each is a batting all-rounder. Afosha’s off-spinners are probably a tad better than Martin’s orthodox spin, although the latter’s are probably a bit tighter, although they do typically not spin as much. But being spinners, they will both be able to get help off Sylestone’s bowling-friendly wickets, and whoever gets selected will face consequences if their performance is not up to scratch, especially with both being almost like-to-like players, being spinners and aggressive batters.


BOWLERS

Name				Age		Gender		Batting Hand	Bowling Hand	Bowling Style		Domestic First Class Side
Joshua Vilesti 32 M R R Fast Capital (SYL Image)
Broughton Hall 22 M R R Mystery Spin Capital (SYL Image)
Norbert Pistecial 23 M L L Swing South Sylestone (SYL Image)
Talvin Mankira 28 M L L Fast Suffolk (SYL Image)

Nathan Norwell 24 M L R Medium-Fast Capital (SYL Image)
Juan de Polo 26 M R R Leg Spin New Gloucester (SYL Image)

Once again, there are many familiar names in this Sylestonean bowling lineup, with some of Esportiva’s and possibly even the multiverse’s best bowlers being present, in the likes of Joshua Vilesti and Broughton Hall. The former is likely to bat at 10 or 11, no higher, but will take the new ball and swing it both ways right from the outset with pace occasionally hitting 150 kilometres per hour. His batting is aggressive and somewhat ragged, but he can at least hold a bat. His opening partner, Norbert Pistecial, made Sylestone’s first-ever century and is a naturally aggressive player, but his true skill comes with the ball in hand, with the ability to hoop the ball around all throughout the innings, but especially at the start. Talvin Mankira will probably bowl first-change, bowling at a pace nearly as fast as Vilesti’s while getting a bit of swing, while Nathan Norwell is a touch slower, but gets a bit more swing. Mankira is another player who isn’t the best batter out there, while Norwell is more of a lower order player who can make the occasional big knock and can bat quite high domestically.
Broughton Hall is the main of Sylestone’s two specialist spinners in this side, with an astounding record in all three formats with his mystery spin. He is able to turn the ball both ways and disguise it very well, making him a handy bowler in the shorter formats of the games. He is a little more predictable in the longer format, but is still a very deadly player to have around, and can bat a bit too, although he is generally a little tentative. Finally, Juan de Polo can also bat as high as 7 or 8, and bowls quick-ish leg spin to go with it, but is an expert at adjusting flight, pace and spin.

And, as promised, part 2 of the preview - hopefully this is similarly free of placeholder text. Make sure to read the spoiler at the end of the post - as I'm sure you will be doing if you're reading the spoiler at the beginning of the post! - for more information than you ever wanted to know about the Foxdale Sports Club, new and updated for 2020 2021.



on the 1st October 2021, the the Plough Islands Cricket Association official programme wrote:
PROFILE: ILYA POSTUKHOV
Born 4th March 1994, PIA Ishtar, New DalmatiaRight-hand batOccasional right-arm off break

While the retirement, at the relatively young age of 33, of the hitherto everpresent Graeme Holt seems at first glance to leave a large hole in most Plough Islanders' preferred Test XI, it is a sincerely held belief among those who have been following domestic cricket over the last few seasons that a ready made replacement exists, in the somewhat gangly body of a fresh-faced Postal driver from Foxdale.
Perhaps reassuringly given the Foxes' recent experience at the top of the order, Ilya Ilyich Postukhov is distinguished by hard work rather than any lightning bolt of mercurial talent; save for a high backlift and a preference for playing off the back foot, his technique is completely orthodox and he holds few surprises for opposition bowlers. Where Postukhov excels is in his judgment; despite modestly referring to his approach to the game as "not getting out, and trying to steal singles", the postman's tactics and shot selection are normally almost perfect and he persistently refuses to lose his wicket cheaply at the start of an innings. The 2020 Harrison Cup season saw Postukhov dismissed for a duck only once, on the first day of the last match against Sutton & Avalon, and he averaged 47.32 including three centuries as he played almost every weekend of the season.
Postukhov's 2020 was all the more remarkable for having not been a consistent member of the Bradford first XI when the year began; he did not come from a notably sporting family like some of his teammates, and had only seriously taken up cricket after moving from New Dalmatia to attend higher school in Foxdale. Having mainly featured in club and second XI cricket prior to a few years ago, he earned his place at the top of the order through consistency and tenacity in the absence of much of the Bradford side on Test duties, but it is to that elite group that he now finds himself belonging. "I always saw myself as a fairly middling batsman, so the last few years have been a pleasant surprise, but to be told I was in the team made me realise how good I am...maybe, perhaps, a lot of it is still wrapped up in shock and disbelief!" he admits, "but my thoughts now are of playing for my country and doing my best. Walking out on my home ground with Kevin and Audrey and alongside all these people I have come to know as my friends, with all the country watching, is going to be one of the proudest moments of my life".

FOXDALE SPORTS CLUB (P.M: -4)

in the 2020 edition of their handbook, the Plough Islands Cricket Association wrote:
FOXDALE SPORTS CLUB, FOXDALE
Pavilion End (north), Dockyards End (south)~10 000 capacity-3 to -4 typical modifiers (first-class)

The beginning of cricket on the Plough Islands is one of those nebulous historical concepts, like the source of the Nile or the existence of Anaia, where the evidence supports a number of different answers. In all likelihood, the game has been played since the first settlers arrived in 1750, with any differences between the claim of one island or another to be the earliest rooted more in natural patterns of settlement than any lesser or greater affinity for the game.
Conventionally, though, as the first known and described location where organised cricket was played, the Foxdale Sports Club is regarded as the first among equals of the six cricket board main grounds, with its recent history as the site of the Plough Islands' first Test victory - as well as the famous tied One Day International against Ko-oren in 2019 - adding to the mythos around the modest patch of land on Foxdale's eastern edge. Sadly, thanks to a terrible fire in 1949 the original buildings and spectator accommodation are no more, although those who remember the old facilities will concede that the new ground makes up for in comfort what it may lack in physical history.
The design of the modern ground was governed by practicality rather than architectural merit, and when it was first opened in 1955 it was decried as 'pedestrian' and 'soulless' by some members of the club, but the years have been kind to the place and its four stands, their rough-hewn timber columns and granite blocks weathering into a form of dignity. The saplings that were planted around the stands during the rebuild have matured into a dense curtain that isolates the ground effectively from the Foxdale dockyards just a few minutes' walk away; during club matches it is not unusual for the only sounds save for the voices of the players to be the flapping of the electromechanical scoreboard and the distant echo of a ship's horn. For Test matches, though, there is a constant hum of activity and conversation, as the city centre location guarantees high interest in the game and an amenable, good-natured crowd of the Foxes' comrades and friends.
The playing surface itself is often considered to favour bowlers, with the spongy, sedgy outfield being historically prone to large areas of standing water - low-lying Foxdale suffers from poor drainage that has prevented many a match from going ahead despite the best efforts of the ground staff. However, the consistent weather and moisture tend to produce pitches that degrade very slowly, and batting conditions will often be as good on day four as they were on day one as the ground resists breaking up until the very last moment.

    White ball champions go head to head as Test cricket returns

    World ODI champions The Sarian will host world T20 champions Gruenberg in a two-Test series that sees Gruenberg make its return to Test cricket following several years of international absence. The former world Test champions entered a period of international isolation for several years following a recurrence of violence along the Gurglestani border, but the security situation has now improved to a point where international touring and hosting can resume.

    Of the side last seen defeating Liventia to claim the 7th GCF Test title, seven players remain – captain Pitkin Deisler and opening partner Compoundinterest Hmnff; young batsmen Plumbert Sthwlorq and Ettexinor Broimbles; allrounder Salajaff Qilairana; wicket-keeper Kahunk Uvaevaluvae; and spinner Lemonzesty Yowoax. Those seven look likely to be supplemented by seamers iiPiqup Fizbin and Brigveger Grovan.

    The remaining two places are the biggest question marks. Nurples Honk is the front-runner for the remaining batting spot ahead of the young Zambuimmi Hengtridan Jr. or older Chthchibvuel Thchthaarheq. Transportflowmap Renkauer could be the only Gruenberg seamer able to flog any life from the flat Bondstad Oval pitch, but another option would be Hraff’ Tumcoweiss to bolster the batting.

    Gruenberg will host three-Test series against Lisander and The Licentian Isles, but all three tours will be just two-Test series, something the GCB has traditionally avoided. Captain Deisler praised the decision, welcoming a “graduated return to Test cricket” that would allow for “a good range of opposition”.
"Do you mean "coming out"...as a Guardian reader would understand the term?"

Postby Liventia » Fri Oct 01, 2021 5:06 am

Liventia's Cricketing Board of Authority has announced its 22-man pool for the tenth Test match cricket season. It consists of an 11-man central contracts list and another 11 men who hold supplementary contracts, and will form the basis of the Liventian squad for its Test matches this season.

Former Test captain Ollie Kerr has finally retired from Test cricket, while three other stalwarts – brothers Max (41) and Sean (36) Finney, and Sean's lead bowling partner Jonathan Adams (37) – are back for one final hurrah of the band. For Max Finney, Liventia's first ever captain, it will truly be a farewell tour. Of note, Max Finney's fellow opener James Quinn has retired from international cricket too, meaning a maiden call-up for new left-handed opener Sean Keller, who will split time with Finney opening alongside vice-captain Peter Finch.

Also called up is T20 reserve wicketkeeper Will Daniels, who will bat in the middle-order in the long form of the game. Matt Goudreau remains the captain, while Finch and Brad Kerr remain the vice-captains.

All 22 players will travel on away tours, with playing XIs to be selected from the touring squads.

Liventia will make use of a DRS review only if:
- If it is an obvious error by the on-field umpire; or if it is not, the following apply:
- If batting, the batsman has made at least 40; or
- If batting, the batsman involved is a recognised batsman or all-rounder and only the tail is left; or
- If bowling, the opposition batsman is one of the three best batsmen on the team and has made at least 35; or
- If bowling, the opposition batsman is someone else has made at least 50.

If you RP first and create a scorecard, I ask that you also do one for my side. Please don't kill any of my players, and serious injuries should be discussed with me beforehand. Retired hurts are fine, within reason.

The following grounds will host Liventia's five home Test matches this season:
Matchweek 3 v Lisander and Alice Bay: Lewes Park, Neverend
An old club ground that's been upgraded for use in international cricket, Lewes Park is due to host its second Test match after its Test debut against Apox last season. Situated about 40 minutes from Neverend city centre, shuttle buses will be provided to all ticketholders for matches at Lewes Park from the city's main train station. For the players, the cool air of the mountainous city will provide a different setting for cricket, and it is not unheard of for snow to stop early-season games here. Bowler-friendly. Capacity: 11,000. End names: Town End, Pavilion End. (-2)

Matchweek 4 v Lisander and Alice Bay: The Bastion Dover Cricket Ground, Dover
Not in any way named after the Euran city, The Bastion is traditionally a spinners' paradise. A new Test pitch was laid before Season 8 to make it more even for both bat and ball, and the grounds crew have been working hard to make the pitches more equitable to batsmen. However, spin bowlers should still find plenty of joy at this ground. Additionally, this season, the CBA has designated this its home pink-ball Test match, which is sure to give the bowlers even more. Capacity: 28,225. End names: Town End, Clock End. (–5)

Matchweek 5, Edwards–Winter Trophy v Darmen: National Centre of Excellence Oval, City Centre
The second-largest ground in the country and home to Liventia's national youth academy. Friendly to batsmen. Bowlers will be tested if it's hot, although City Centre isn't in the desert. After losing the inaugural trophy, the CBA hopes putting two of the three Tests against Darmen at the flattest tracks in the country will play in the Red-and-Gold's favour. Capacity: 37,000. End names: Pavilion End, Academy End. (+6)

Matchweek 6, Edwards–Winter Trophy v Darmen: Park Central Oval, Orean
The 'home of Liventian cricket' is a batsman's dream, usually flat as a road. Has produced most of Liventia's highest-scoring Test innings. The second of the dead tracks, the grounds crew have been told to prepare a dry wicket that might spin a bit on day five. Capacity: 37,500. End names: Lothian End, Poplar End. (+5)

Matchweek 7, Edwards–Winter Trophy v Darmen: Folenisa Cricket Ground, Folenisa
Probably the Liventian ground which players most enjoy playing at, with both bat and ball able to dominate at times during the long-form games. While the groundstaff have promised pitches better suited to T20 cricket, it remains to be seen how much assistance bowlers will continue to have. Home to the the Cricketing Board of Authority, who have chosen to have the last home Test of the season played at the ground nicknamed "HQ". Capacity: 25,600. End names: Desert End, Walton Road End. (±0)

The Decision Review System is in use in all Liventian home Test matches. These include lbw ball-tracking, an audio edge-ometer, and a video hot-edge replay.

Liventia XI to play Eura, first Test:
MA Finney, PD Finch, DHJ Edwards, PJA Bérenger, WRD Daniels, E Reynolds, BAR du Pont†, RJ MacMaster, MEP Goudreau*, SV Finney, BL Kerr

Squad for tour of Garbelia: JOW Harper (c), PV Joshi (vc), SE Cameron, ER Dunphy, Faraj al-Huq, Mehrab Hussaini, Naseem Latif, APR McEwan, NW Miller, VM Mntimande, OG Perry, DJ Roberts, RHS Seelalankara, JE Stone, JDC Van Jaarsveld

Batting: In a team featuring many who’ve represented Uncertainty in limited-overs format, it’s notable that both openers are red ball specialists, as Alex McEwan and Oscar Perry make their debuts. McEwan is a tall, correct right hander; Perry a squatter, left handed counterpuncher who, when not fed with short stuff, can become a grinding blocker. Neither are going to put the opening bowling to the sword, being instead from the school of patient accumulation. Thereafter come more familiar names: captain Jack Harper and vice-captain Pranav Joshi. Harper, an elegant all-formats stylist, has impressed in white; Joshi has been carrying the “promising prospect” tag for slightly overlong without having performed to back it up. Eoghan Dunphy has been a dependable domestic accumulator but is unlikely to feature in the final XI. Nate Miller is another new name, a young batter who finds himself picked in the middle of a rich vein of form as he plunders runs so fast no one quite notices a couple of technical kinks that need to be ironed out outside off-stump.

All-rounders Jacques Van Jaarsveld and Naseem Latif will compete to fill out the middle-order but both are here more for their batting than bowling. Van Jaarsveld is a Big Human Being who hits it a mile, also the distance between his bat and pad when attempting to play spin. Latif is a wristy strokemaker with a propensity for flashy runs and flashier brain-fades. Sachith Seelalankara is a wicket-keeper/batter, not in that order: he’s here for his blistering batting form (batting in the top 4 domestically). He’s not an iron gloves but his keeping is definitely the second string. Jess Stone, by contrast, is a specialist glovewoman: while she’s capable of style with the bat she’s not shown the propensity for big innings, but her glovework, especially standing up, is very sure-handed. Of the bowlers, Devon Roberts would be a weak number 8; and after that, the tail drops off and right quick. Seth Cameron will be nightwatchperson if needed.

Bowling: Roberts will spearhead the attack; by far the best Uncertain bowler in the last year of international cricket, he’s a tall, fast hit-the-deck merchant who bowls a probing line. Not a swing specialist, conventional or reverse, but relies on pace, bounce, and occasional aggression. Cameron is a dependable seamer who lacks Roberts’s explosive ability to extract life from a dead pitch, but when offered some grass or cloud, he can be a very incisive swing bowler. When neither on offer he’s good to hold up an end with reliable consistency. Vusumuzi Mntimande and Mehrab Hussaini by contrast, are explosive prospects, possibly here for experience rather than playing time. Mehrab has better command of reverse swing, mostly legally. Van Jaarsveld is not a first choice international seamer but can hit the deck and has a nice by-line in split-finger cross-cutters.

The selection panel is gambling on just one lead spinner: leg-spinner al-Huq, bowling loopy leg-breaks with his out-ball the big ripping googly. He’s been inconsistent at international level to date. Latif offers left-arm spin bowled with a smooth action but without fantastic amounts of turn, relying more on guile, drift, and the batsman tripping over their own bat and knocking the bails off with their dick. Or lady-parts! This is a co-ed team (just about) and we promise to try to remember to call them batters, nightwatchpersons, and fielders at third person. Harper can bowl in a pinch.

Fielding: To seamers, the slips will generally feature McEwan, Harper, and Van Jaarsveld. Miller is an excellent point/cover fielder. Cameron’s a surprisingly good outfielder for a big man, but most of the bowlers are fairly inept, especially clay-hands al-Huq. If a helmet is needed, that’ll be for Perry. To the spinners, Harper will tend to be the slip (or, on a slow pitch, catching mid-off) and Joshi come in under the lid.

Captaincy and tactics: Harper is not an attacking captain or tactical genius, relying on his players performing after giving them stirring speeches in the dressing room. He’s fairly disdainful of modern analytics, too. Leave that sort of nonsense for baseball. He won’t go super defensive early, and will give his bowlers catchers for as long as they keep something of a lid on the runs. Don’t expect unusual field placings or strange flips to the batting order, though.

RP permissions: No photographs, no violence. I will try to make scorecards if I have time. Everything else is allowed.

The Bollonischian National Test Cricket Team

Bollonischian Cricket Board

Bollonich's Tour in Ko-oren


Bollonich burst into the cricketing scene with a great performance in the T20 Championship making the round of 16 where we succumbed to a loss. While making our way to the round of 16 we also defeated number 1 ranked Ko-oren and many other strong sides. This performance not only boosted the popularity of cricket in the country but it provided people faith in the national team. And now it is the turn of the test side as they will need to show all of their resilience and strength against Ko-oren a very strong test side who will not be going easy over us. The team looks strongish however they will be hoping for a good showing in the two tests they play at Ko-oren.

Starting 11

Gerald Merritt - Merritt is a solid batsman who has the supreme capability to adapt across formats being able to work in even the toughest of times scoring quick runs while also having strike rates lower than 33. Merritt is a solid opener who is a brilliant player of fast bowling, spin not so much.

Liza Allard - Allard is a very strong batter who has made her mark mainly on the test side with her classical way of batting. Her orthodox and beautiful technique can easily make anyone fall in love with the sport.

Mercy Andrews - The right handed batsman unlike their name shows no mercy towards the bowlers when he gets going. Andrews is a player who’s strike rate seems to jump from 50 to 100 within the space of a few runs or balls as he very slowly settles down and is known to attack much once reaching some milestones.

Gale “Chip” Haggard - Gale or Chip as he is known is another quality batsman in the ranks of the side. Chip has become a constant starter in all formats despite his low age as he has shown on more than one occasion how much he actually deserves the opportunities he’s been given.

William Abraham - Abraham is an experienced piece revolving around a much younger core of the side. He is often known to hold ground while in tough situations often serving as the last line of defense. He can also be attacking where necessary and is a rather efficient scorer of runs.

Quentin Christopher (C) - Quentin is the experienced leader of the side. He’s been in this team since his early twenties and now heading into his forties he is very much looking for his last hurrah before hanging up his gloves as the wicketkeeper and captain of the side.

Lois Derrick - Derrick is an important player to the side, batting in seventh position he is thatch needed all rounder bridging the gap between the batsmen and the bowlers and providing that extra depth to the side.

Traci Rowe - Rowe is a very talented bowler reaching speeds upwards of 140 knots while also generating a good amount of seam. She’s also capable of delivering the occasional tricky ball such as a cutter. She is also pretty handy with a bat and is often the source of some runs.

Nolan Waterson (VC) - Waterson and Quentin are very much the leaders of this side, and both of them are very close friends as well. Don’t expect to be surprised at Christopher asking for advice from his vice captain or often going by what he says.

Letty Horne - Horne is a young fast pace bowler who’s one of the main sources of wickets for the side. Often seen as the apprentice of team leader Waterson the similarities definitely exist as Horne represents a young and faster Waterson in many aspects.

Xavier Sherburn - Xavier is your typical test bowler, unlike the Irvine who is more of a limited overs bowler Xavier is perfect for tests. He can deliver long, quick spells and go on for a long time without getting tired. Xavier’s task in the team is often to wear down the opposition batsmen or deliver overs at a quick rate while the pacers recover from their spells. However when conditions favour him, we get to witness his true quality.

RP Permissions: Yes to all permissions.

The team are here to reinstate their name as a great cricketing team. With recent slightly lacklustre performances, they know they have a lot to prove. A mix of cross-format players who appeared in other GCF tournaments such as the Twenty20 Championship and the ODI tournament as well as players who specialise in test match cricket in their domestic involvement. This team is relatively youthful and inexperienced compared to players fielded in previous series, but is passionate and exuberant in their desire to win games and deliver on the field. The team will be spearheaded by Gary Umbridge, who has been a key figure in Ethanian cricket for a while now and will be hoping to really push and deliver with this team, knowing that he is very much a part of the older generation which is slowly being phased out to make way for bright, upcoming Ethanian cricket players. This series will be somewhat a proving ground for a lot of the players in this team - a chance to prove themselves and state their right to a position in this squad on a permanent basis. With a lot of young players and some knocking on the door, the pressure will be on these players to really make a difference when they play, because if they struggle to make an impression they could be dropped. Don't expect brutality though - some patience will be given to players who have potential and look promising but just haven't hooked it together yet.
