Cricket 19: Career Mode – Century on Debut!

Hi, I’m Paul Morris. Thank you for joining me as I commence my career on the bottom rung of the ladder of English domestic cricket.

I’m looking to make swift progress and earn a county contract at Yorkshire, maybe get some gigs on the global T20 franchise circuit and ultimately achieve my lifetime’s ambition of representing my country, England.

I recently made my debut for Leeds in a 3-Day Club match away at Sheffield Gardens. As you’ll see from the image above, it was dehydrating work. Coloured clothing in the 3-Day matches is aimed at drawing in the youngsters and I’m delighted to be beginning my career as the game itself moves forward. I hope to do so with it.

I contributed an encouraging 25 in my first knock. I was the second top-scorer in an innings of just 111 all out but a poorly executed pull shot proved to be my downfall. Our bowling attack then ripped through the home side’s batting line-up, dismissing them for an embarrassing 47 on the opening day of the campaign.

In our second innings I became the first player in the match to pass fifty and soon had my eye on what would be a special debut ton. When the ninth wicket fell there was still lots to do but I shepherded the strike perfectly. Admittedly I had a little luck when dropped on 82 but by the time I was finally dismissed our number eleven batsman hadn’t even faced a delivery. This was despite us putting on a partnership of 21 for the last wicket. Regarding the celebratory jig, I really don’t know what came over me!

Sheffield fared better in their second dig but an innings of 131 all out saw us gain a convincing 173-run win to commence the campaign.
