  5. BT pops - Week 9

    Just 1 for me today, a couple of weeks earlier than expected. Bowling training has now finished, so the poor sod is on double Stamina for the rest of the season, which should see him to Proficient Delroy Middleton (440539) RH Batsman, RM Bowler, respectable batting form, superb bowling form...

  8. BT - Cup Round 4 & Week 5 YP

    Looks like I'm going to get a morale boosting win :), and my YP wasn't too bad. I've sacrificed Oconnor's last level of Stamina, to give the net to Pa Chewsticks XI v BATTY SHRIMPERS BATTY SHRIMPERS won the toss and elected to field. Pitch: Cracked End of Over 13: 58-5, runrate=4.46...
  9. BT - Week 3 pops

    Another 2 today The Big O is coming to the end of his training now. 1 more pop due in each primary, which should allow 1 more in each con as well, then he's on for some serious Stamina work. Delroy Middleton (440539) RH Batsman, RM Bowler, respectable batting form, superb bowling form...

  12. Battrick Season 8, Week 1 pops + New O/D leagues

    No pops for me this week. As I'm still training Schoeman (19), Evelyn (20) and Middleton (22), I'm not going to get many this season, unless I manage to get some decent YP's, in which case the 2 Stamina nets I'm rotating at the moment will be switched to them. My league is very competitive...

    How should I improve my batting?

    You may or may not have noticed it but I need to improve my batting somewhat…. With the new season only a few weeks away, I need to start planning how I'm going to do it. As it stands I will be using 5 nets at the start of next season, 2 bat, 1 field & 1 stamina on Cunningham and a single...

    BT Pops

    Saj popped a week early, his training is now complete. Suthers will continue. A couple of skill trade pops as well, though I doubt I'll make too much on them due to low stamina. Now hitting stamina again, 5 nets cleared to get everyone up a level by the end of the season. Adeem Sajjad - 21...

    Ht - Warning!

    With the new stamina training system in place, if you trained stamina last week you will have been reset to general this week. Check or you won't get any training!
  17. Battrick - Week 8 pops

    2 for me today, glad about Middleton's as it now means I can swap his Stamina net to a Batting net and try and get his Conc up, and then switch back to Stamina a bit later on. Phillip Evelyn (924822) RH Batsman, RH Spin Bowler, superb batting form, superb bowling form, sublime A cautious...

    Pops 18/6

    1 primary pop for me this week (my AR in bowling, which took him long enough), and 2 stamina pops for my seamers. Rather annoyed at the way the form seems to be working out though, as several people who played great games last week suffered form drops in spite of this. For example, one of my...
  19. Battrick - week 3 pops

    Had a real result today. I bought this all-rounder for 6,666,666 on Thursday. i now reckon I could sell him for 8.5m in 5 weeks, as he'll have another level of Stamina by then. Guy who sold him must have miscalculated his bowling !! Delroy Middleton (440539) RH Batsman, RM Bowler, strong...
  20. BT transfer advice

    Guys, Any idea how much a 24yo Quality / Quality bat is worth. Unfortunately he's only Feeble Stamina, but I do have the facility to put 2 nets on him..... I'm guessing at about 4.5m or is that a bit on the low side.
