Mysteries of Bowling training Unleashed!!

I see many people complaining about training,so i feel the time is ripe to reveal my share of tricks and secrets of this game.
Out of the 6 possible trainings i would suggest you to begin with BM training. Why?! I will be answering it as we progress through this post. Before you begin, you have to pick trainees who are useless in Variation and age below 18 years[3000-5000SI]. Try to get the above prescribed type of players as many as you can out of the 6.

Now inorder to train 6 bowlers of same type needs  little adjustments to be made in the bowling order, i,e, we need 42 overs to train 6 bowlers completely, but we have only 40 overs per week,so optimize 5 bowlers to bowl 7 overs each per week and one lesser favored bowler bowls 5 overs per week. This way 5 bowlers are trained to the maximum while 1 gets 71.43% of maximum training. In 3 seasons or 30 weeks, you will have 5 bowler with 30000 and one bowler with 25000 skill indices. (approximately)

So we go back to the question of why BM training over all others to begin with?!
The answer is simple, We now have an extra player with 25000 skill index, we sell him in the market and get 25M cash. With this cash we can comfortably switch to Batting training by buying world class youngsters.

Advantages : 
No need to buy seamers(if training spinners and vice versa) to train your 6 bowlers.
All your trainees get full experience.
Extra player when sold at end of training boosts your finances.
You will be forced to play 6 bowlers,thereby reducing your batsmen to 5 every match.(short term loss for long term profits[think about it]) If you feel this disadvantage is too much to bear, train only 5 bowlers then, trade off for profit you would get at end!
Why BM over BV?
Because BM is way faster than BV to train. Also, BV is optimized for 10 trainees, you will neither have the resources nor the patience to train BV. Also BM training helps increase in BV by say 50% compared to BV training. Hence, BM is ideal!
But,after you reach 30000 SI, it would be better to improve your bowler variation to reliable or accomplished by giving BV for a season or two for an ideal bowling attack!

Note : I challenge anyone who can propose a training strategy faster and better than this! ^_^*
And yes i'm an egoistic bastard! Thank you!!

And yes, for people who are wondering why have i revealed this!
Inorder to end the arbitrage and make this game more tactical i.e, predicting your opponent moves, timing your powerplays etc rather than just whining over skill indices

4 overs and 4 overs worth of training are two different things
a bowler gets 4 overs worth of training by bowling 4 overs only when the total no. of allocated overs to that category is 12 overs

Yes, I agree on what you said now. My understanding matches what is in the manual and what the link you posted says. Plain n simple logic I ve understood until I read this post is- in effect, in a week there is either 24 overs of bowling spin training or 24 overs of bowling seam, across two matched. So, the most optimum is 6 seamers getting 4 overs each or 6 spinners getting 4 overs each. The statements marked in the red in this post got me pondering - about 5 bowlers getting 100% and 1 getting 71.42????

there are total of 40 overs in a week
when a bowler bowls 7 overs(including both matches) he gets
100*21/20 percent of training which is105%
since max training a player can get is 100% so 5 bowlers bowling 7 overs each in that week gets 100 % training
remaining 5 overs are bowled by the 6th bowler
so trainig he gets is 100*15/20 ie 75%

P.S. this calculation is for using 6 bowlers of same category

I just bought a 17yr12d old seamer having avg/hop skill but for very high price :-( ....(more than 25 lakh)
What do you think? If i am giving seam training every week will he become a 40k player by the age of 20 ? too greedy huh  ;-)
