    Actually, I play 3rd grade cricket, on the weekend after I dived and saved
    a four, my teammate Armo threw the ball from 2 steps inside the boundary,
    hit the stumps directly, and got the batsman out. A real life glitch if
    ever I saw one. No joke guys, I don’t think I’ll ever forget itο»Ώ

    The game is actually good, better even than numerous shoddy ‘attempts’ at
    cricket for subsequent consoles. It plays well and the graphics are
    excellent for the time – there were very few PS1 games that were completely
    bug free back then. You got used to the glitches and played around them.
    Dunno, guess I had more patience as a 15-year old. πŸ˜‰ Cricket in a
    nutshell: Fat blokes chuck a ball at other fat blokes with sticks.

    Yeah, he always runs to the stumps when it would be better to pick up and
    throw. On the rare occasion he does it catches you out and that’s it, run
    out. Luckily, if you wait a second longer you can twig it. One of my
    favourite cricket games. I have two copies. πŸ™‚

    @lakepalmer The wickie was having a spot of tea with the leg umpire and
    neglected to take up his position. Nobody noticed. Just like on the village

    “IN THE AIR……..and SIX and safe and that’s out, caught by McGrath.” I
    knew that was a glitch because McGrath couldn’t catch a cold.

    @Hindleyak i knew how to overcome the hangs but tricks were not working in
    my android, so i changed my emulator from FPse to psx4droid and it worked!!
    now i can play this game on my Android phone (mytouch 4g) and the trick was
    start worldcup and after choosing team, u will hear music animation of WCup
    and after that Quit worldcup and then u can play any friendly match without
    hangs after toss.. thanks for reply though πŸ˜› thanks

    @mrugankpatankar I’ve had the overthrows thing happen to me on numerous
    occasions, but I didn’t know the game treated it as a boundary. πŸ™‚ Usually
    a bloke goes across to pick it up and throw it back while the controls
    remain unresponsive. Oh, and you just reminded me of the many times when
    run-out decisions went to 3rd umpire and showed the batsman got home yet
    the game gave it out. I need to get playing again, probably worth it just
    to find more bugs!

    its so reality based game.. the modern games should be based on this
    version of cricket not stupid EA 07 like etc.. but the Wicket Keeper is
    inspired from kamran akmal i think lol

    Love the video and the game’s weird happenings.

    I remember hitting the ball so hard after it had been given as a six it
    rolled back past the umpire. I also remember when georgia browns was called
    bonnie lasses

    @lakepalmer Robot wicket keepers are the future. Screw humans and their
    desire for money! Robots don’t need paying or feeding and you can switch
    them off at night. Probably have to cart them into the pavilion so they
    don’t rust in the rain though. Agh, I’ve been watching far too many sci-fi
    action films of late. I need to put on some Superted to redress the balance.

    @mrugankpatankar There was a glitch to get an easy wicket right after
    saving the game which I omitted from this video but I can’t remember many
    more advantageous bugs. If you know of any, one must inform me of them
    immediately πŸ™‚

    @rang6300 There’s a Planetcricket forum thread with a possible solution. I
    would link you to it, but YouTube is a piece of poop and won’t let me. Do a
    Google search for ‘hangs after toss’ and the thread will be the first
    result πŸ™‚ I think it might be something to do with sound drivers, from what
    I can gather.

    I think all of these glitches occured to me when I played this game, Oh the
    nostalgia by watching this video πŸ˜€

    @Hindleyak Yeah there was one where they try to run you out and the fielder
    has a shot at the stumps, but the batsman makes it, and no one bothers
    stopping the ball – you get four overthrows. But you dont get runs for the
    single or two runs or whatever you ran. If you ran three&that overthrow
    thing took place the batsman who played the shot miraculously comes back on
    strike! I remember i was like 6 or 7 when i played that game…It was one
    of the best cricket games out until cricket 2000 came.
