International Cricket Captain 2014 - Review
Cricket Web's Game Reviewer Dan McGrath has spent countless hours playing Childish Things's latest International Cricket Captain release and brings to you his thoughts. Is this years edition worth purchasing?

What happened on this day?

30 Jan 1988

Chris Broad enlivens what has been so far a most tedious Bicentennial Test between Australia and old enemies England when he smashes his stumps upon realising that he has just been bowled by Steve Waugh for a 7-hour 139. It is the briefest interlude of excitement in this game for the purists. Australia are forced to follow on despite the best efforts of the aptly named Peter Sleep before David Boon saves the day (and a half) with a Boycott-like 184*.

Celebrating their birthday today:
David Brown (72) | Trevor Laughlin (64) | Ranjith Madurasinghe (53) | Suraj Randiv (29) | Mitchell Starc (24) | Suraj Randiv (29) | Ben Cutting (28) |
