    Not sure the game has boundary distance as a setting. I think it’s probably more weather and pitch condition. Most games in England have cloud it seems

      But I'm also not getting big scores when on tour. Even on roads in sunshine when I'm 90-0...

      Even against Zimbabwe on a road in Harare I couldn't get over 200 and they're garbage on my save.

        Online is very difficult. Even a run a ball going into the final few overs is proving difficult.

        Last two games.

        1. I needed 19/18 balls with 7 wickets in hand and only won off the last ball, didn't even lose any wickets.
        2. I needed 11/12 with 6 wickets in hand and lost by 3.

        How is everyone else finding online?

          Played 50 T20 games online and scored 9 times over 200 so pretty high rate for me considering lots of those games I don't bat first. Most of them when IPL teams challenge me on flat sunny pitches.

          I find offline harder in domestic T20 in England, 160 seems a very good score which I guess it can be sometimes but not always.

          I've got a few tactics I use... main one being my batting lineup is flexible. When I lose a wicket I decide if I need a finisher coming in, someone to block out some balls or a spin specialist.. I try and play game by situation rather than just stick to one formula. I also pick V AGG and AGG batsmen only even if I have better players who are not as attacking.

          See my 260 online score, my opponent didn't bowl and batsmen or do anything stupid, I've never got close to this on any version of CC so well happy My opponent did well with bat too so obviously a flat pancake deck!

            Foxes told me he got 260 - he's got probably the best side online atm.

            Most of my team are aggressive or V aggressive batters. I just can't seem to score big vs anyone, offline or online.

            Even from good positions such as 100-0 etc... The surface and conditions don't seem to make much difference. Don't quite understand what I'm not getting here. Tried multiple different tactics. Go big early, conserve wickets. Defend every time a wicket is lost and then go big, match the target run rate...

            I'm still winning most games but that's because of my bowling.

              Foxes indeed is the best player online at the moment - Agree. Just played a test against him and we both had a good outing. Ofcourse, there was always going to be a winner- which he turned out to be.

                Next game online: Needed 14 from 12 balls with 7 wickets in hand and lost.

                I just don't understand what's going on here. I just can't seem to win at all at times. I only lost 2 wickets as well so batters aren't even going for it, despite being on full aggression.

                Is anyone else finding this in the latter overs?

                Updated:

                I played again and needed 23/24 balls, 9 wickets in hand and only scraped through. Opposition only managed 60 from final 10 overs despite having 8 wickets left.

                Something definitely seems off at the end of a T20 innings. Neither I, nor the opposition can score runs near the end, no matter the conditions, the batsmen or the how settled they are for either me of my opponent.

                Online, no one has got more than 170 Vs me and I don't think I've passed 170 either. This is from 29 online T20/T20i games.

                  Just completed my first BBL season since changing tactics a bit (haven't played finals yet) and seemed to be scoring a bit more on average. I'd say except for a few notably low scores and one high score, I scored ~170+ per match. Keeping on top of form is very difficult though for the Aus domestic T20 since there isn't a 2nd XI to drop players to regain form. Once their form tanks, their season is over. I spent all of my training sessions on extra batting practice throughout the season just to keep everyone's form at a decent level.

                  With one match to go I was outright third on the ladder with no chance of dropping to fourth but a bonus point win would see me leapfrog into first place. With nothing to lose I went full aggression for the first 10 overs, then one off full until the final overs and finally back to full for the power play and final two overs.

                  This was surely a fluke but shows that when conditions are right, fast scoring for new batsmen at the death is possible.

                      Slow pitches in Bangladesh makes sense

                      after reading Wilted post and having similar experience playing in AUS I really just believe it’s English pitches that need to be higher scoring on the game

                      • What's the average real life T20 score in England? By which I mean what I think of as a "completed" innings- all out, down to the last over, last two wickets or the full 20 overs.

                        I've been mostly bowling first and chasing low scores with a young team whose batting is quite so it is hard to gauge from my saves.

                        I would say my ancient tactics are still going strong and on average concede 130 runs bowling first, which has been about the same for years now. That's domestic, haven't played many internationals yet but that is usually more around the 150 mark.

                        BTW mostly cloudy conditions sounds about right!

                          This is the last set of results in this season t20 blast. I think average score should be way above 150 these days. Maybe cloud affects limited over scores too much compared to real life.

                          • My totals are nothing like that at all.

                            I decided to start keeping track of some of my stats and although they are only from just two seasons in one save - and a year into that save - they aren't a million miles away from what I would usually expect.

                            My preference is to bowl first, which I have managed to do 73% of the time and over the two years and 32 matches I conceded over 150 on only three occasions and on average concede 129 runs.

                            Surprise surprise I'm playing as Glamorgan and while the bowling line-up is decent enough with Nasser, van der Gugten, Douthwaite, Sisodiya and Taylor with a few regens it is hardly international grade.

                            While I can see why my rather young and brittle batting line up might be averaging lower than the real life T20 average I can't see how that would apply to other teams.

                            • Also in that time I haven't dropped a OD game in two years, have conceded over 250 once and on average concede 197 despite having to blood regens and youth players every year.

                                It’s hard to judge the one day engine in English one day cup because all squads are wrecked by the 100. Will try and judge this more now I got the England job, currently of the opinion the only issue with game is t20 scores in England are too low, otherwise very much enjoying
