NV Play Cricket v3.0.4 Release Notes (7 May 2020)

 

General Scoring

  • Automated Power Play changes when shortened match details are entered, according to standard ICC tables for the match format (including The Hundred), while taking into account the current match situation; e.g. a reduction might mean a current Power Play is finished (#715)
  • Automated Power Play updates when the Match Type is changed after a match has been created, including between different limited overs formats, and between these and non-limited overs matches (#3772)
  • Enabled personal information such as profile image and DOB, as per Players, to be available for all Officials (Umpires, Referees, Scorers, etc), enabled as usual by ticking Permits Use of Personal Data checkbox first (#5299)
  • Added an Innings Note for Match Reduced to X Overs, when added either pre-Toss or post-Toss but before First Innings is created (#5809)
  • Enabled Key Moment coded balls to be included in Auto-Tweet function as an Event, as per Milestones, Breaks, etc (#5808)
  • Fixed issue where a critical error would sometimes occur when clicking OK to close the DLS Par Score Table at the end of an innings (#5352)

  • Fixed issue where Player and Official filters would not reset/load additional data when changing season or Match dates (#5687)
  • Included newly created Players in their default Club/Team list under Add Player immediately, rather than only after they have played a match (#5732)
  • Fixed issue where incorrect current bowler set when exiting Edit mode after making a change for two overs previous, when the current over had not been set (#1607)
  • Fixed issue where the Bowler would revert back to the previous bowler if in a Break, change the Bowler, and then click Start Play (#4567)
  • Fixed issue on Auto-Tweets where there was a mismatch of overs/balls between the innings score and the ball description after Wides or No Balls were added in Edit mode (#5770)
  • Fixed issue where the Twitter configuration for Every Ball was not disabled correctly if it had been previously enabled, resulting in a Tweet every ball even though it did not appear ticked (#5807)

  • Changed all Innings Notes to display Balls rather than Overs, e.g. Team Milestones, Breaks, Retirement, Hattricks, etc (#5667)

  • Changed the Ball by Ball and Innings Notes over ball numbering format, to new Ball (Over.Ball) format, and ensured change to this in related places, e.g. Match Scorecard & Scorebook pop-ups, End of Over checks, Compare/Signoff (#5676)
  • Adjusted Bowler Confirmation prompt to enable bowlers to bowl in consecutive “overs”, defaulting to the last bowler from an end for the next over at that end, removing ineligible bowlers from the prompt’s dropdown list, and appropriate prompts for maximum consecutive overs (#5355)
  • Adjusted display of bowlers in replay screens and scoreboard XML to cater for consecutive “overs” from the same end  (#5379)
