There are a lot of manager games on the market from football to racing and everything in between, so why not a cricket manager game. And yes, there is one and the newest version of it will be released later today, Cricket Captain 2015.
“With the Australians in to town to take on England, one day international records falling daily and the launch of the all-new Cricket Captain 2015, this is set to be one of the most exciting cricket seasons for a decade.”
Cricket is a sport that is extremely popular in some parts of the world while other parts barely know it exists, so it is logical to assume that it will be a bigger hit some places than other. Britain, India, and Australia are markets where I’m sure it will find a lot of fans, and probably more.
The new Cricket Captain 2015 takes the experience to a new level and the game now includes Indian domestic club competitions, updated and expanded stats, a new and improved interface, updated 3D graphics, and a stack of other additions and improvements over the previous Cricket Captain games.
It is a game with low requirements, all you need is Windows Vista or higher, 1GB of RAM and a graphics card that supports OpenGL 2.0. Recommended graphics card is an Intel HD 4000, AMD HD 5450 1GB, and a Nvidia GT220 1GB or better.
