Oooh! This might be a little new feature. Rather than clogging up everyone’s inboxes with article upon article and rapidly running out of photographic ideas, Extras can be a medium to detail a series of little tidbits about the global game from time to time.

Bye: Don Bradman Cricket 17 (PS4 and Xbox One) will be released on 22nd December. The second instalment of the Big Ant Studios production provides even more (Yes, even more!) customisation, a more in-depth career mode, women, improved DRS and bails that light up amongst many other things. The theatre looks great and Big Ant deserve huge credit for the effort and attention to detail that they’ve put into this game. As mentioned in the latest edition of ‘Upcoming Articles’ Silly Point will provide a thorough review in due course. Take a look at the trailer below but one word of warning…

… it’s £54.95 at the South American rainforest!

Leg Bye: England Legend Charlotte Edwards has joined Hampshire after ending her sixteen year association with Kent. Edwards will also be representing the Adelaide Strikers in the Women’s Big Bash (On BT Sport) this winter.

No Ball: Nepal Women were dismissed for just 21 (Ouch!) in the ACC Women’s Twenty20 Asia Cup. Rather appropriately, Extras top scored with 7! Let’s hope that Nepal can come back stronger next time they take guard.


Wide: Zimbabwe have announced a new domestic structure that includes a forty over league. It’s kind of like domestic footballers playing seventy-five minute matches then being expected to go out and play internationally for ninety!
