Brian Lara International Cricket – bat, bowl and field through official tournaments with the real professionals!
(2pm UK time) – Designed as the ultimate hit and run experience, Brian Lara International Cricket will come packed with official content thanks to a licence from the International Cricket Council (ICC), the governing body for international cricket, Codemasters announced today.
As an iconic sports gaming brand, Brian Lara International Cricket returns to this summer for PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC and the ICC endorsement brings the organisation’s world famous tournaments to the title.
You’ll be able to step up to the crease and compete with the professionals in cricket’s most challenging tournaments including the ICC Cricket World Cup and the ICC Champions Trophy.
Featuring all the official ICC One-Day International teams, with 16 players per squad, and stadia from around the world, including The Oval, Newlands, and Edgbaston, Brian Lara International Cricket will be a truly authentic experience.
The ICC deal also brings authentic strips and real name players with detailed facial likenesses to the game. So, in addition to Brian Lara himself, you’ll be facing world-class bouncers from the world’s greatest bowlers, including Wasim Akram, GD McGrath or Andrew Flintoff or trying to send the bails flying from cricket’s best batsmen such as SR Tendulkar, Ricky Ponting, or Andrew Strauss!
Brian Lara International Cricket will capture all the exciting, athletic, skilful and technical elements of the sport in the only cricket game designed to make batting, bowling and fielding equally enthralling to play. Brian Lara International Cricket will hit you for six this summer when it’s published by Codemasters for PlayStation 2, Xbox and PC.
