    Brian Lara International Cricket 2005 was by far the best, for all its quirks. BLIC 07 was rubbish, though, stick with the older game.

    I should have said I was looking for the cricket version of Pro-Evo rather than Football Manager. I'll have a look for Brian Lara 2005. I've heard good things about EA Sports Cricket 2007.. Anyone played it?

    Stick cricket is pretty good alright. I wanted a game with bowling though. I picked up EA Cricket 07 yesterday for 15 squids and I'm getting addicted already.

    What's the likelihood of a cricket game on the Wii on the not-too-distant future? Anyone have any information?

    Not a console man, but I reckon there's no chance. The market is very limited (India isn't a big purchaser of games) and there are no cricket games in production anywhere at the moment, as far as I know.

    Sorry, didn't notice the release date.

    I know there is beach cricket in a game called 'Beach Sports' or something like that. Not supposed to be great though.
