** Correction **
Please use the following to run this game on Windows 11 with Full Commentary & Videos **

Got this working on Windows 11 with Richie Benaud Commentary Full Version. Only Requirement is a Virtual CD mounting tool such as Power ISO, Daemon Tools, Virtual CD Drive.
Steps:
1.) Download ISO Version
2.) Download RIP Version.
3.) Mount ISO Version to CD and take note of the Drive letter it is mounted to in my Computer.
4.) Inside The Rip Version (downloaded from step 2 above), there is a Cricket 97 folder, inside of this a registry file called "Cricket" right Click this registry file and edit it by opening it up with Notepad. Edit the CD Drive letter so that it matches the same drive letter as what is shown in Step 3 in My Computer. Save the registry file and run the registry file and select Yes and Ok when prompted. 5.) Open the ISO Version via Virtual CD drive of Cricket 97 and you will see WinCrick.exe file inside the C97 folder. Run WinCrick.exe and it will work natively in Windows 11 without having the need to install the game or make any compatability settings changes.
6. Enjoy the full version of this game with full commentary and videos :)

Games like this sometimes had missing sound files.
Reason for this is because the sound files are on the original disc that would have been in your DVR drive tray. Therefore the game when starting and playing takes those sound files directly from the disc.
Even mounting the game may not find the files.
Only thing you could try is burn the game onto a disc or try buy the original online. But that not only defeats the object of downloading here but also you may run into the problem that you have a modern pc with no dvd drive for discs.
O e last shot is to go into the iso file and unpack with something like magic iso programme and see if there are any sound files. Then copy those files into the install directory. Long shot but you never know?
