  • Ensured additional named players outside of the Playing XI (or “number of players” per the match type) are selectable in fielding events, e.g. to correctly link a catch to the database player for later analysis even though they are a sub, but designated correctly as sub on scorecards as per free text subs (#1145)
  • The New Sub Fielder dialog box now optionally allows a player from the database to be selected, as an alternative to free text entry, while still identifying the player as a sub in scorecards etc but ensuring correct fielding stats for analysis (#3911)
