This game is DREADFUL. Not only are the graphics amateurish and simple the game is simply unplayable. The controls do not respond as described. When you try to hit the ball as described in the manual all the batsman does is block and you either get bowled or get a leg bye. Forget about bowling - this does not work at all. All the game throws up is you are trying an illegal operation and does not permit any bowling at all - even when you are following the very brief (extremely brief !!) instructions. The game is so bad you can't even select most of the menu options.

I only paid A$16 for this so called game but after the frustration I put up with they should have paid ME!! I love cricket and cricket games and have tried most of them but I feel sad that the hours obviously spent on developing and publishing this game were so wasted. I live in Australia and unfortunately I don't have access to International Cricket Captain 2000 (I played the original with the ICED editor endlessly) and have to put up with such lame efforts as this. My advice - don't waste your money on this game at any price, it simply doesn't work.
