Description of Allan Border's Cricket

Read Full Description

Probably the world's best cricket game until Electronic Arts' EA Sports version years later, Allan Border's Cricket is also known as Graham Gooch World Class Cricket, Jonty Rhodes II World Class Cricket, and probably a myriad other names depending on where the game was released.

Aside from different introductory picture featuring different cricket stars (Jonty Rhodes in the South African version of the game, for instance), all versions of the game feature the same great gameplay. Allan Border's Cricket lets you play a variety of games, from one day matches to test cricket. The game has team listing for all nine test-playing nations, as well as those in the Australia Cricket Shield. There also is a feature to edit your teams, incase you want to update the lists and averages. The Australian version (i.e. this one) features all the Sheffield Shield Sides (Australia) with authentic batting and bowling averages, plus Australia, New Zealand, West Indies and England teams, all of which can be customized to your heart's content. You can play against a friend or good computer AI, at Amateur, Professional, or World Class level; you can even watch two computer sides play each other.

On the pitch, the game allows you to control the bowlers, the batsman and the field placings, all of whom are animated very realistically. Intuitive mouse-based controls (similar to computer golf games) allow you to make many kinds of batting strokes including the sweep, hook, cover drive, and square cut.

You can vary the speed and the amount of spin or swing, and even choose handedness of your batsman and bowlers. Choose from the pre-set field placings or create your own; fielders automatically change over to a left-handed batsman, or a new bowler. The list of options goes on, and the game's fantastic graphic detail including player shadows, and occasional showers of rain add icing to the cake. Suffice to say that no cricket fan should be without Allan Border's Cricket, one of the best sport games of all time that put Audiogenic on the map of great game developers. Two thumbs up!

Also, check out Shane Warne Cricket, the last and greatest cricket game from Audiogenic.

Best Cricket game ever played!!! Is this game available on Android or Windows 10

Jay 2018-02-07 -5 points DOS version

If you keep using any right-hand fast bowler and pitch the ball at a good length just on or outside off stump at full speed to a right-hand batsman, or at the feet at full speed of a left-hand batsman, you will almost always bowl the batting team out for less than 100. If you use any bowler and pitch the ball at a good, fullish, and wide length (but not too wide to be signalled wide by the umpire), you will almost always be bowling maiden after maiden. Also, the Test Matches are only about 60 overs per day which is extremely unrealistic considering they are 90 overs per day in real life. These few serious bugs completely spoil what would have otherwise been arguably the best classic cricket game for PC. What a pity.
