Among modern era cricket games, EA sports Cricket 2002 was the first one that became an instant hit among the fans, with its modern visuals and improved sound relative to that age. After that, numerous Cricket games were developed by EA Sports, as well as by other entities. But, none of those games stood a chance of competing with any FIFA game. Cricket games have been less in number and lower in quality, compared to their competitor football games.

There is no second opinion regarding the immenseness of market of football games as compared to cricket games. However, that couldn’t be used as an excuse for not developing good enough cricket games.

After Ashes 07 and EA’s Cricket 07, there have no notable cricket games been brought into the market and what was more dejecting for the cricket fans was the cancellation of Ashes Cricket 2013. But, now in 2014 after a long while a truly awesome cricket game which goes by the name of “Don Bradman Cricket 2014” has been developed and without any contention this has to be the best cricket game ever developed, hence the tardiness in development can be excused.

In the previous cricket games, the user could only control the placement of ball and speed but in this game along with these two features bowler could also control the jump while delivering the ball. Only a true cricket fan would know the importance of a long nice run up couple d up with an appropriate jump for delivering a wicket taking delivery. There are few other amazing options for bowlers but all these options have been developed keeping in view the convenience of their usage so that bowling can become more natural and close to reality.

One other aspect which will make bowling fans jump in their seat is the incorporation of “degradation of pitch” factor. Just like international cricket, pitch will surely degrade in your Don Bradman Cricket 14.So; beware of batting in 4th innings.

2. Batting Improvements.
