Robin Smith’s International Cricket
Although then a successful cricket player, Robin Smith licensed a management
game. Playing against the computer, you can play a single match or a series of
3 or 5 one-day matches, as one of the top 7 international sides. These matches
can be anywhere between 40 and 60 overs per side in length.
First you select your team off 11 based on their battling, bowling and wicket-
keeping abilities. A coin toss decides who bats first, after which you choose
your tactics for the upcoming over, based on weather and wicket conditions.
The bowling side has 9 field layouts to choose from.
The action is represented from a top-down view of the whole field, with a
running commentary as to the results of each stroke, showing what type of shot
was played, who fielded the ball, and how many runs were scored.
