Those leggies gave me some trouble for my first couple of games.


#14

Finally got done by a grubber, where was the no-ball call, ump?


#15

I love the animations in this. It’s pretty fun, though I think my failing comes from getting bored and my subconscious “lets me off the hook” by making me mrs-click (mr. click’s asshole wife).


#16

Things were splendid until my side took a downie after a 4,6,6 and the smacker bagged a wee marsher, putting the other side’s try behind both the aft wickets! Final score: twentington.

My brain is immune to understanding cricket.

Pretty cool superpower, right?


#18

+1 Like.


#19

Nice work buddy, that’s concentration for you. I usually get done trying to drive a yorker to silly point.


#20

Its like baseball but actually good.


#21

Vastly more fun than, you know, actually watching a cricket game.


#22

I’m looking at getting the new Cricket Captain 2017 which looks like a slightly better version of Cricket Captain 2016.


#23

You should also get Don Bradman 14.


#24

But after years after playing what I think was the 2005 edition of Don Bradman, I finally understood the basics.
Took me 12 more years than understanding baseball on an 8 bits computer.

Bowled out my first swing. Second swing I hit for six.

Edit: Finally hit my century: 111.


#26

If you swing out in front, you’re almost guaranteed a little dribbler that’ll get you 3. I guess what you might call a “swinging bunt” in baseball. If you let the ball get deep into your swing, you’ll almost always hit a 6…course if you miss, you’re out.

My best is 151.


#27

It’s actually like a slightly better version of Cricket Captain 2001.

I can’t believe how little progress this game has made. You can’t even sort the stats when picking your team.

But I bought it for the first time in years as I quite like idly clicking the mouse whilst listening to test match special. Think of it more as Cricket Clicker.


#28

This, on the other hand, is wonderful.


#29

DB 17 is meant to be a lot better since its release last year.


#30

I’m not prepared to pay £40 to find out :)


#31

For those of you who know baseball but not cricket, here’s a handy transformational guide to explain how cricket is and isn’t like baseball.


#32

Me neither, it never seems to have a sale either £25 and I would be all OVER it ;)
