Simulation cricket's back! This time, Fishlipps will be hosting BanglaCricket for a three day first class match and three one dayers following that. Calling the boys to pad up and pour some oil on those joints after what seems to have been ages.

The following members have featured in the most recent BanglaCricket squad, and I would like to know who from this list is still interested in taking part in the upcoming tour.

There may be room for debutantes, however, do keep in mind that due to time constraints, it is not possible to simulate a domestic league ahead of the tour to hand pick new talents. If you are not in the list above and are still interested in being a part of the squad, please reply to this thread with the following info:

1. Your batting style, position and average
2. Your bowling style and average
3. Whether you keep wickets at all

New players will only be included if there is room after making way for the oldies, but by entering now you will be automatically considered for future tours.

For new members, these games are run using a simulation software that, to put it simply, chugs out scores that will be posted here on BC at regular intervals during game time.

Fixture:

Only first class match: Aug 13 - 15
1st OD: Aug 16
2nd OD: Aug 17
3rd OD: Aug 19

The team returns home on Aug 21. Let's try to avoid jutar bari upon landing. :)

Exactly my question. I am interested though. I haven't played any simulation game yet so I don't know my average, or is it supposed to be my real life average?? Sorry I haven't played this before!!:)

AsifTheManRahman
August 5, 2007, 12:14 AM
Don't worry, just put down your real life average or make something up.

Either battye (BC member, aka the Simulation guy) or I will probably be in charge of running the simulation on our side. All you need to do is just sit back and watch the scores get updated here on BC. I haven't had a chance to look at how the simulation works yet, since I've been pretty swamped lately. Where is James when you need him? :)

Ok thanks for the info bhaiya. I am interested in this and here are the answers to the questions:

Batting Style, Average, Position:Right Hand, 23 average and positions 1-4.
Bowling Style, Average: Right Arm, Fast/Fast Medium(mostly fast), 15.5 average.
Wicket Keeper: I Don't keep.

I am new to simulation so please explain in details how you play this and etc!!:)

Very quick explanation, Asif (as he is the captain) will select the team consisting of 11.
Batsmen 1-4 are your better batsmen, 5&6 your "good" batsmen, #7 your wicket keeper (for simplicity) and 8-11 your bowlers.

Asif, when he is submitting the team, has various options available to him as captain. He can choose the batting and bowling style of each player, select the team allrounder (a batsman who will bowl the majority of the extra overs not bowled by an official bowler) and a few other options.

The opposition captain does the same thing, so tactics definitely come into play, especially when playing in a first class or ODI game. (eg, you might not want to have every player set to Slog in a 3 day match, but for a Twenty20 that might be a good option)

Then what the captains have submitted is run through the simulator, and a ball by ball report is outputted.

For example, here is the scorecard from the last time Banglacricket.com played (slaughtered!) Fishlipps: http://www.simulationcricket.com/scorecards/scorecards.php?s=sca_world_cup_2007&g=20
An example of what the Ball by Ball looks like can be seen here (http://www.simulationcricket.com/scorecards/F_SCAWORLDCUP2007_GAME12.txt)

The live scorecard for the 3 day match can be viewed here (http://www.simulationcricket.com/scorecards/scorecards.php?s=banglacricket_fishlipps_aug2007&g=1), but scores will only start appearing on August 13 :)

AsifTheManRahman
August 6, 2007, 12:51 PM
Squads will be declared soon, some time after the 10th (that's when I'm done with exams). As usual, there will be different squads for the two versions, and many of the oldies will be retained. However, there are a few members who haven't been active on the forum for a long time now (a good half a year or even more than that), which will probably make space for a few new faces, but one can only play so many debutantes when you already have a bunch that has performed so well in the past.

Bancan
August 6, 2007, 01:58 PM
Ok so how are the new ones getting picked?

Rifat
August 6, 2007, 07:36 PM
please someone put me in the reserve squad if there is such a thing.

battye
August 7, 2007, 04:07 AM
As it seems there are enough players for 2 teams, it might be possible (providing someone is willing to captain, and the other team agrees) to have an "A" team match. Potentially, this will be a single 50-over match between Banglacricket.com "A" vs Saintsational.com "A" at some point over the next 2 weeks.

When Asif announces his squad, then of the remaining players an "A" squad can be formed. I will let you know if there is any progress with this (I am talking to the Saintsational.com "A" captain as well to see if this is viable). News article (http://www.simulationcricket.com/articles.php?n=63) with the likely Saintsational.com "A" squad.

AsifTheManRahman
August 7, 2007, 11:57 AM
Saint Patrick could be the one to look out for in the A team match, if it takes place at all. The guy was in their test squad the last time we played a series against them (and lost pretty badly, too). We did come back pretty well in the ODI tri-series though, ending up as champs.

http://www.simulationcricket.com/series_archive.php?series=all#series_fifteen

battye
August 10, 2007, 02:52 AM
Good news, saint patrick has announced his squads availability for an A team match.

Saintsational.com "A" squad: OLB, mightysainters, LennyBoy, wildgoose, saint patrick, Milan Faletic, 2007, st_Trav_ofWA, chook23, Goose'sGirl, SaintBot

The two players to look out for, are obviously those with international experience.

mightysainters

TEST: 4 Test's, 237 runs @ 39.50
ODI: 17 ODI's, 379 runs @ 23.69

saint patrick

TEST: 1 Test, 0 runs @ 0.00
ODI: 7 ODI's, 51 runs @ 10.20


Still need to confirm a date (as well as Banglacricket.com "A"'s availability) but a 50 over match is certainly on the cards. It is not outside the realms of possibility that a 3-day match could be added to the series as well.

Cheers! :)

Zunaid
August 12, 2007, 08:15 PM
Zunaid

1. RHB - out first ball to anything. Highest probability of playing on.
2. Leg Spin - Will get my man. After a 6. If I do not get a wicket second ball, the other team will score 1000 runs.
3. Wickets? Why keep wickets if you have good bowlers?
4. Umpire - great for giving outs based on the loudness of the appeal.

Kabir
August 12, 2007, 08:26 PM
3. Wickets? Why keep wickets if you have good bowlers?

So that the deliveries that beat the batsman don't run to the boundary!

Zunaid
August 12, 2007, 08:30 PM
So that the deliveries that beat the batsman don't run to the boundary!

All deliveries must get wickets. A delivery that beats the batsman but races to the boundary is a bad delivery.

Good to have Dr. Z back, although it's kind of late this time around. I remember we used to have a much stronger team that comprised of the likes of him, CM, Pundit, etc in the past.

And then one bright sunny morning, they all retired.

I want to thank you all for the great game. I'm slowly learning the finer points of the game and strategy. I wish we had given you a larger score to catch, but there's always the ODIs coming up. Great duo Asif and MasterBlaster, and also Sunniath, James90 and bourny3. It was quite exciting even if we Were slaughtered!

Good luck on the ODI's, we'll be looking forward to them! :)
