    Just quickly having looked at the 2nd XI averages from Glamorgan, some of the younger/newer players are very inaccurately rated (though this is probably a reflection of almost all new youth players being underrated):

    Danny Douthwaite - Bowling rating needs to be significantly improved (to around low 20s in 2nd XI 3day games for example). Recently won a match for Glamorgan in a One Day game and is also doing decently now in FC games.

    Jeremy Lawlor - Aggression should be changed to Defensive at the very least, and also he bowled medium pace the last I saw him bowl in a recent FC game (currently shown as Offspinner in game)

    Nige: Changed to RM, have left him as Very Def, as that is what his strike-rates show, I know he's had a couple of quicker List A knocks recently, but not really enough of a sample size.

    Prem Sisodiya - He is the next new hope for Glamorgan, having played for Eng U19s and doing well. 2nd XI 3day bowling average needs to be 20 or below.

    Roman Walker - Another Welsh player that was in the Eng U19 squad recently and needs improving his in-game bowling skill.

    Connor Brown, Charlie Hemphrey and Tom Cullen all need changing to Defensive/Average Aggression.

      Please play the game and matches with the players in question before providing ability feedback.

      Can you also be clear on Brown, Hemphrey and Cullen for their aggression. Ie, listed for each one.

        Just some initial observations :-

        NOTTS - Alex Hales Only an opens the batting in List A and 20/20. Changed.
        Steven Mullaney doesn't open at all now, bats at 5 in FC I'm going to leave as is, as he is still an opener having opened most of his career, just doesn't right now.
        Chris Nash doesn't open in FC bats at No.3, opens in List A/20/20 Changed.

        SOMERSET - Tom Abell Doesn't open in any formats, bats at 4 or 5 Changed.
        Peter Trego and Max Waller have only List A and 20/20 contracts

        DERBYSHIRE - Tom Lace is missing, he moved from Middlesex I believe and he doesn't open he bats at 4 for Derbyshire.

        Calum Macleod and Safyaan Sharif are no longer at the club. Changed.
        AI doesn't select Matt Critchley or Alex Hughes, they are both 1st team regulars Tweaked.

        GLAMORGAN - Shaun Marsh doesn't open in FC, bats at 3. Now 20 Over opener
        Colin Ingram is on a List A/20/20 contract only, same as last year.
        Hemphrey is an opener, Lawlor is not and has batted at 6 or 7 this season. Changed.
        AI doesn't select Selman and Hemphrey as opening pair. Tweaked.

          Hi Mark,

          Thanks for the feedback.

          Wasn't Lace on loan?

            Fair enough, will play a few seasons before reporting back in that case.

            Brown, Hemphrey and Cullen are all listed in-game as Very Defensive.

            They should be the following:

            Brown - Defensive FC S/R is 32, List A S/R is 63, he will be staying as Very Defensive.

            Hemphrey - Average Aggression Just about 80 S/R in List A, low 40s in FC, just about warrants a change up to defensive.

            Cullen - Defensive Under 40 S/R in FC, will be staying as very Defensive.

              Lawlor has been opening in One Day cricket though, he just needs changing to a middle order batsmen for FC cricket.

                Apologies Nige, yes Lace is on loan.
                Couple more I've found
                LEICS - Cosgrove bats at 4 or 5 is FC, still opens List A and 20/20. Changed to 20 over opener, hasn't opened in List A in last 2 years.
                GLOUCS - Roderick and Howell bat at 5 and 6, don't open these days. Roderick now middle order, left Howell, as he did open a lot last year.
                Is Will Tavere still on Gloucs books? Added for next DB.
                and Left Arm seamer M Taylor doesn't get selected by the AI, I think he has been a regular this season.
                NORTHANTS -
                Vasconcelos has opened in FC every game this season with either Newton or Curran, Rossington still Keeps though. Changed Vasconcelos to opener in FC.
                Bavuma doesn't open in FC, he bats at 4 Changed.

                Kyle Coetzer not at the club anymore. Removed.

                  Few initial notes for Hampshire:

                  Oli Soames (opening batsman) is missing (http://www.espncricinfo.com/england/...er/884075.html), currently getting picked over Aneurin Donald in FC cricket. Added.
                  Chris Morris missing as the t20 overseas. Added.
                  Rilee Rossouws FC batting preference should probably be lower than 3, can rarely remember him batting that high. Off the top of my head he should probably be a 5. Changed.
                  Alsop should probably be average aggression. Strike rate of 90 in the one day cup this year (where he scored a good amount of runs) and 55.82 in the championship. I also get the impression he's stronger against pace than spin so should probably be tweaked from spin specialist to a pace bowling preference. Changed, and agree with the Strike Rate change, good FC S/R this season too.
                  Harry Came is an opener in all formats (I know his recent matches suggest otherwise but that's down to openers ahead of him in the pecking order being present). Changed.
                  James Fuller should probably be very aggressive with the bat and maybe RMF with the ball from what I've seen of his speeds on Sky this summer. Could also be an all rounder? Batting ahead of Barker in FC cricket who has the status and quite often batting ahead of Berg in one day cricket who also has that status. Keith Barker a bit too good with the bat, have also changed him to bowler, looking at stats looks like his batting his tailed off quite a bit. Fuller does hit the ball quite big, but at end of 20 overs, mostly. Will leave him as aggressive for now.

                  Then elsewhere:
                  Rob Yates (out of contract at the start) seems to be with Warwickshire now. Changed.
                  Topley's decided to take this season off to recover from his long-term injuries. Is it perhaps possible to give him some kind of injury to account for that. Given him a back injury for the season.

                    Added to that should Vince be a FC opener perhaps? Done it in every Championship game he's played so far this summer and has made it clear he intends to continue.

                    From a few simmed games the AI seem to be bowling Sam Northeast ahead of Joe Weatherley, Aiden Markram and James Vince (although that could be down to bowling style) which doesn't seem right. Nerfed Northeast quite a lot.

                    Liam Dawson has a FC preference of 3 which is a bit high as well. Should be 6 I think. Changed.

                      Great feedback chaps. Unfortunately I didn't have time to get the squads up on the forum, been a rather busy few weeks. Big summer of cricket!

                        A few Somerset notes.

                        Tom Abell - Hasn't opened for a while and bats at 4 or 5 and since then his aggression is probably average now not defensive,
                        George Bartlett - Bats at 5 or 6 in all formats now.
                        James Hildreth - He has been batting at 3 in first class cricket so far this year but should be at 4 in all formats really.
                        Josh Davey - For some reason he is down as a one day no 4 when hes a tailender.
                        Roelof van der merwe - Bats lower down 3 in T20 now mostly 7.
                        Lewis Gregory - He should definitely be aggressive if not very aggressive. In this years one day cup had a strike rate of 141 and hit 17 sixes.

                          Logan Van Beek at Derbyshire should be registered as their overseas player, although he is of Dutch Nationality he also holds a New Zealand passport and plays for Wellington, as he holds ambitions to play for New Zealand. http://cricket.derbyshireccc.com/staff/logan-van-beek/

                          Changed him to New Zealand nationality.

                            AB needs to play higher than Hetmyer.
                            Navdeep Saini needs to be picked ahead of Kulwant Khejroliya, Saini played almost all games for RCB whereas Khejroliya hardly played any

                            Tweaked.

                            SRH:
                            David Warner needs to start!

                            Gentle tweak applied.

                            MI:
                            Hardik Pandya needs to start ahead of Anmolpreet Singh, Rahul Chahar needs to be picked ahead of Anukul Roy

                            Tweaks applied.

                            RR

                              Jake Lehmann the reserve overseas instead of Joe Burns Changed.
                              Liam Livingstone should be an allrounder as main spinner in FC cricket and bowling more than the likes of Bohannon in OD Cricket. Changed.
                              Saqib Mahmood should be rated a little higher as leading wicket taker in the Royal London this season. Don't agree with this, please play a bit more with him.
