Cricket 19: North Western Hemisphere Test Championship – Squad Announcement

Hello England fans

Having recently been appointed as Selection Architect for the England men’s cricket team, I’m delighted to announce our participation in the newly formed North Western Hemisphere Test Championship. We’ll take on Canada, Ireland, Netherlands, Scotland and USA in home and away Test matches. That’s ten Tests in all before competing in a final.

The team are looking forward to contributing to this new dawn of international cricket, helping to spread and develop the game across the globe whilst ultimately attempting to be crowned inaugural champions.

Joe Root, who I’m delighted to confirm has retained the Test captaincy for this exciting new competition, will collaborate with me in deciding the playing XI on the morning of each match.

The playing squad for our inaugural North Western Hemisphere Test Championship encounter against Scotland at The Oval, Surrey, is as follows:

This versatile twelve-man squad provides the team with flexibility should we be presented with a surprise surface or unexpected injury and allows us to balance the playing XI in a number of ways.

We’re extremely grateful for your support and look forward to you following us around the north western hemisphere both in person and online. Please visit the site in future for detailed match reports complete with images of every England game.

Paul Morris, Selection Architect, England

Disclaimer: Jack Leach and Ollie Pope will be unavailable for selection for the entirety of the competition due to injury*

*By injury I mean technical issues that prevented me from adding them to my pool of 35 players!

  1. Fantastic to see you already in the game and flying away!
    I like the tournament you have with some new nations and some older ones all competing for the glory.
    Definitely a strong squad and I have also had some trouble getting some players in but they are now solved…
    Looking forward to see more Cricket 19 content and how are you finding the game – I think it is much better than Ashes.


    1. Yes it’s good alright but I’ve been struggling with the difficulty levels. After mucking about with Five5s I thought that I could play on harder levels but in Tests I’ve reverted to Pro and am still falling apart… as you’ll soon read about!

      1. Oh dear oh dear the traditional England collapse!!!
        I found the game slightly easier actually than ashes but I think that’s because I have a bit more time and patience. I have delved into career mode at Twickenham and things as you will see soon have been decent.
        I’m very close to designing my own leagues but first I need to finish off my 3 ashes Cricket 17 reports and a wrap up of the mini GTC.
        Thanks for your support
