We had the batting on just analog to be fair, but I would happily switch it to zone and analog once I get it. Actually think I'll hit better with zone once I get used to it. We were also only playing it on veteran.
Pitching we were using the analog method. What's pulse like? Can you still make it look like you're pitching a ball and then use the angle of the pull back to send it into the strike zone?
Fielding even got quite fun once we turned off all the assists (certainly played a part in the high scores when we'd mess up a double play or throw to the wrong base as they were running for home heh).
I just wish Americans loved cricket! A cricket game with this details and polish would be incredible.
