Ashes Cricket (PS4): You, Me and Virtuality!

IMG_3479

Been missing my Don Bradman write-ups? Cricket Captain and its graphs and charts just not the same? Well fear not Silly Pointers because with the release of Ashes Cricket soon upon us, my PS4 based cricket adventures are about to begin again!

Come the release of Big Ant’s third (DBC14/DBC17/Ashes Cricket) venture to the crease, you can look forward to the following:

  • Yours truly setting out on a career and this time getting a county gig before the age of 26, a batting average at least in the twenties and international recognition… hopefully!
  • England participating in newly formed Test, ODI and T20I leagues. As per my previously detailed plans to restructure world cricket, I would ideally amalgamate all formats and create the Global Cricket League (GCL) but that is beyond even Big Ant’s customisation boundaries.
  • The Stateside Smash (Something that I’m confident is within Big Ant’s customisation boundaries). Los Angeles Ashes, New York Nightwatchmen and Houston Apollo are just some of the franchises rumoured to be signing up.
  • Original jazzy kits and funky bats designed by yours truly.

Silly Point himself registering a First Class century, England becoming Test champions of the World, a razzmatazz USA based T20 league, Mark Footitt winning an England cap and Ross Whiteley turning out for Phoenix Free Hitters. These are all things that could happen… if not in reality then in virtuality, in Big Ant’s Ashes Cricket!

 

Don Bradman Cricket 17: New York City Pioneers – Franchise Disbanded!

There is nothing new about cricket in USA not working out as planned and so it is that the New York City Pioneers franchise has disbanded after just one match, a defeat at that. You can read about the team’s sole venture to the crease and how it all began by clicking on the link below…

On a positive note however, rumours are circulating regarding the possibility of a city based T20 franchise appearing on the North American horizon within the next few months. Could it be that the Stateside Smash is about to become a reality?

With the release of Ashes Cricket on the PS4 and Xbox One looming, it could be a convenient time to launch a razzmatazz league from New York to Los Angeles!
