    This thread may sit here with no responses, or a very little amount of views, I don't care, I love this game, and am going to share my experiences playing as the (virtual) Australian cricket team.

    My squad contains the same 20 players currently contracted by CA in real life, however I reserve the right to promote/demote any player to/from the squad, in between series. Our first port of call is a 5 Test series away against South Africa.

    Tim Paine has won the toss and elected to bat on a reasonably flat wicket, but with a slow outfield.

    Australia is in a spot of bother at lunch on day one, currently at 4/65. Highlight images below:

    Much better second session, losing just the one wicket for 99 runs.

    Paine and Burns bat through to the end of the day, after being 5/77, Australia finish the day on top at 5/298. The wicket has flattened out to a road, runs are there for the taking.

    Continuing this series, at work right now so I can't post any scorecards/screenies, currently bowling to SAF in a 320-odd 4th innings run chase in the second test of the series.

    Not sure if Cameron Green will get a start with the real aussie test team, but I may have to blood him into my squad for the upcoming India series, as Wade has struggled in the first 2 tests against SAF (art imitating life?)

    Top game. Got it for a laugh to play with the young lad but I got right into it. I’m not a gamer at all but this brought me back after about 15 years in the gamer wilderness.

    I took the long route. Made my own character and built up over time through club, then district, then state, playing tournaments, just need to crack the Australian side now..

    Love the game, although it’s amusing playing a game in the Carribean t20 competition and Michael Slater announces a change of bowler “coming in from the Randwick end”.

    Well one end is closer to Randwick than the other.

    This game is on the Xbox game pass, but not the Game Pass for PC!! Grrr!!

    Couple of questions - Can you play as other nations besides Australia? Ie, can you play as New Zealand?

    Also, does it have domestic competitions in it, like the BBL?

    You can pretty much play as any team you wish, only some are licensed, MOST are not.

    The licensed teams are Australia and England, plus the Australian states and English counties (I think?). All the other teams such as New Zealand, South Africa, India etc. have been modded in by some pretty smart folks, there's some sort of face scanning thingamebob inside the game that allows users to create pretty much anyone, like a custom Virat Kohli or Kane Williamson or Faf du Plessis all look pretty identical to the real deal.

    The BBL is not in the game, but all the teams are easily downloadable, so that you can set up your own tournaments.

    I had to format my PC the other day, so need to re-install the game, I don't lose any progress as it's all saved on steam plus I always back it all up. Thinking of perhaps doing some live streams, or at least recording and posting some little highlight packages here.

    EDIT: FYI all the mods are NOT exclusive to PC, they are also available on consoles as well.

    Just a quick update that this series against SAF has had to be abandoned, I had a lightning strike near my house a couple of Thursday's ago, close enough for a surge to come through the NBN modem and straight down the ethernet cable and into my motherboard which f**ked it completely.

    I was running an i7 7700k on a 7th gen board, but have now upgraded to an i7 10700k on a new 10th gen board. It has taken longer than I would like to get it all running smoothly but I think I'm almost there.

    Hopeful of doing a days play in game for every day of the upcoming AUS-IND Test Series.

    I haven’t had much time for PlayStation this year, I don’t have internet connection on my PS4 just play by myself or if a mate comes over. Would you still recommend buying this game? I am thinking of it for Christmas but am worried career mode may crash.....

    Is it any better than Ashes Cricket 17? In that game I started my career made it into the Australian team at 22 years old then when I turned 24 years old the whole thing froze and I couldn’t continue my career, I haven’t played it since. Can’t be stuffed building a career again for it to freeze as a 24 year old.

    I still love the DB14 game still play it sometimes am like 31 years old now in my career mode. T20 average is about 50, test average 50-51 and ODI avg around 39, I bat at number 4.
