In the full version of Cricket, each team can be selected from a squad of 15 players and you need to assess the bowling
and batting performance of the players to improve your team's performance.
Batsmen with lower batting averages are more likely to give catches as they try for runs - and make sure
you rest your bowlers from time to time so they can keep up a good line and length.
