Signed up this morning, excellent game except for when that Shane Warne's bowling (I just can't pick that Wrong un of his), good fun though.

Thats where I go wrong as well. I get 90 or so off 4 overs, then as soon as the spinners come in my run rate comes to a grinding halt.

I'm exactly the same, I can handle the fast/medium pace bowlers and like you I get to between 80 and 110 for 1 or 2 wickets off 4/5 overs then it all goes pear shaped when Warne and Emburey come on. Not only does the run scoring grind to a halt but the wickets start tumbling as well.

Still I shall keep practising, I'm sure its just a question of timing your stroke right to the slower bowlers.

Not played this in a while. Can handle the spinners without too much bother, it's the swing bowlers that I struggled with.

 

On my first go, after being 41/6, I recovered to 121/9.

I'm the other way around! I can knock Hadlee and that all over the common - As soon as Sobers, Warney and Embers get a throw I start losing wickets all over the place! LOL!

Warne is easy! Its the medium pacers that are a pain.

 

Went from 82/4 to 82 all out from 8 balls off the two medium pacers!

I'm doing a bit better now although reading through the comments I think me Rummy and Rocky are all in the same boat and are all getting about the same final 10 over score.

We all seem able to smash Lillee and Hadlee all over the park but then struggle with both run scoring and wicket loss against Warney and Embers.

I know its just timing but the slower bowlers seem to vary their pace regardless of spin and that throws me.

I shall keep trying but about 180 runs regardless of wickets seems to be my limit at the moment.

I suck at this game. Second round score of 111for3.

 

Can I play again to try and improve that? Or do you just get one go per round?

 

You get as many goes as you want, the best score you post gets recorded.

 

 

 

I.e. Leeslover was 14 all out at one point, think he managed to get to about 40 now!
