Great games. Well done all!
Just curious, following a discussion in the Skype chat with jmsepe, how are the scores generated for this?

Scores are determined by a random number generator. I sometimes make adjustments if scores don't correspond with a nation's (probable) strength (i.e. Oceanic countries are likely to be better at cricket/rugby, just as you'd expect with European + South American countries and soccer). Will also try to reward members that are more active.

Final
New Duveland 201/5
Jarraban 196/8
New Duveland won by 5 runs

After winning AINVision just weeks ago, New Duveland triumph again. They are the 2017 AIN Cricket Champions after defeating Jarraban in a thrilling contest. They now travel to Torainn for 3 Test matches, whilst Jarraban won't meet another AIN opponent (New Duveland again) until December.

I apologise about the lack of graphics/visuals for this tournament - recently upgraded my computer and lost some stuff in the process. The original graphics just happened to be amongst the lost items. Future cricket matches and the upcoming Rugby Championship will feature graphics.

Results from the recently-completed series between Torainn and New Duveland (hosted by Torainn). That's it for cricket until December when two series are scheduled.

Two more series will take place prior to the AIN trophy:
  • Jarraban visit Torainn for two matches in late February
  • Neu Westfalen pay a visit to New Duveland for the first time ever. Also two matches in late Feb.
