Ah, cricket. I remember the first time I was forced to endure that so-called sport.

10 years old in the late 1980s, at a boarding school. Was told to sit on a bench with a bunch of other boys, shut up, and watch.

2 damn hours later, I get to have a go in bat.

The teacher bowls me an easy ball. I hit it, the teacher catches it, declares I'm out, and tells me to go sit back down.

Nice.

Being Indian I am supposed to like cricket but goddamn I have no idea how people can play this as a video game.

You literally hit the ball back to the bowler which you yourself claim was an easy ball... Son, you have no right judging what's considered a sport or not lmao.

Well, that looks rubbish.

Considering these games have irredeemably bad commentary, poor graphics, and a camera that takes an age as it slideshows its way across the panoramic view of the ground it boggles the mind that they thought it needed shit weightlifting and interviews with the press.

It's hard to believe that there hasn't been an official Cricket title since Big Ant Studios' Cricket 19, especially given how popular the sport is (though given recent events over the years, it's understandable). Thankfully, the wait for a proper follow-up is now over. Cricket 22: The Official Game of the Ashes is now available for Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, PS4 and PS5 with the Nintendo Switch version slated to release in January 2022.

Quite a lot has changed over the series' last big outing in terms of mechanics, features and modes but there's also plenty familiar for fans of the sport. Let's take a look at 10 things you should know before buying the game.
