New South Wales, Australia – Mobile app developer, Winning Games is proud to announce the release of Play Wickets, an app for the cricket enthusiast. Play Wickets is a game that challenges players’ knowledge of the game of cricket, which is popular in countries all over the world including Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, West Indies, and Zimbabwe. The question is, does the player have what it takes?
Play Wickets is designed like a trump-style card game where players must choose their cricket player’s best statistic. Players can play with cricket legends like Sir Don Bradman, Sachin Tendulkar, Sir Vivian Richards, Brian Lara, Jacques Kallis, Sir Ian Botham, MS Dhoni, Shane Warne, Dennis Lillee, Glenn McGrath, Muttiah Muralidaran, and Imran Khan. They can choose from a variety of decks including World Cup 2011, Country vs Country, Top 50 Legends, Top 50 Current, and Indian Premiere League. If players wish, they can also mix and match decks to create the team they desire.
“The game of cricket has die-hard fans from all over the world,” said developer Andrew Walsh. “The Play Wickets game brings together exciting play from the best cricketers in the world in a challenging and fun game for veteran players and newcomers alike.”
Before beginning a game, players can choose from three different game formats: Test, One Day, and Twenty20. In real cricket, a Test match refers to the highest standard of first-class cricket where teams represent their country. A Test match might feature a game between Australia and India. A One Day match refers to a limited overs cricket where each match is scheduled in a single day. The Twenty20 match is another limited overs cricket where matches much be completed within three hours. With these game formats in mind, the options for players are endless.
The app records the latest statistics of over 3,000 cricketers in the three game formats for players to use to their advantage. There are also 30,000 statistical records of cricketers’ matches, innings, runs, batting average, batting strike rate, highest score, wickets, bowling average, best bowling, bowling strike rate, bowling economy, and catches. These statistics are what players must draw upon in order to win the game.
Play Wickets allows players to challenge themselves or their friends, making it both an independent and social game. Players can play country vs. country, era vs. era, or era vs. country depending on the challenge they are looking for. The app also features trivia quizzes and showdown games to further test the player’s knowledge.
