OK, let's take a look at Cricket games, i would have thought there would be loads of Cricket games, alas the worlds 2nd most popular sport has slim pickings.

I don't think I've ever seen a cricket video game until now.  Cool to see those.  Shouldn't the systems the games are no be at least labeled in the video, though?

Going to the final frontier, gaming...

I used to love playing Brian Lara Cricket and I reckon I would purchase a new game should one ever be released.

As for the labels I did for each individual clip but for some reason that was not carried over it appears when joining them all.

Brian Lara on the XBox is awesome. Vaguely remember playing International Cricket on the NES.
