2Hr Test Cricket


2Hr Test Cricket comes with the Ratings for 2003/4 and some A-T-G ratings

This game is designed to enable a solo user to play a complete Test match in around two hours. Using the Basic Game no individual player scores will be generated, just team scores and partnerships for each wicket. However, the scores will be realistic, as will scoring rates (depending on Batting Mode chosen) and the game system incorporates eleven different types of starting Test wickets (i.e. Pitch Conditions) which will change over the course of the match in a logical but not entirely predictable way. Users of 'County Championship' will immediately notice much that is familiar in this game but there are important changes and improvements (we hope) and no-one should have a problem with completing a full day's play in 20-25 minutes once the play system is thoroughly understood.

We also provide rules to enable individual batsman's scores and bowler's analysis to be generated if you so wish, but this will lengthen playing time by about 25% and users will need to provide their own batting line-ups and be prepared to make some subjective decisions when rating a team's bowlers by deciding which of a pair is Senior Bowler and which id Junior Bowler.

We provide Team Ratings (Batting and Bowling/Fielding separately) for all Test-playing countries for the period covering the winter of 2004/5 and the summer of 2005, plus some All-Time-Great teams to enable you to set up some fascinating 'What if?' series.

For those of you who have enjoyed 'County Championship' over the years, and those of you who feel the need to play relatively quick Test matches, this is the game for you. For those who need more detail and more individual player 'feel' we recommend 'International Cricket', also available from 'Owzat Games.
