So, if you want to recreate iconic moments, such as Shane Warne’s ‘ball of the century’, or a lengthy knock from Brian Lara, then this is the ideal game for you. It’s available on PC and has built up a large fan base.
Clearly, the game is all about the Ashes, which is one of the most intense and historic rivalries in all sport. It’s a clash that attracts attention from fans across the world, but it has to be the pinnacle of the game for any English or Aussie player.
