An all time classic! Here's hoping they revisit it for the 2017 edition!

After watching this I'm kind of interested in playing cricket or at least trying it.

Dan mentioned this as being one of his favorite Quick Looks in today's weird stream thing. And my god this was amazing. Laughed so hard.

This game is still $50 on Steam. What.

Also, one of the Steam reviews is a guy who simply says "I am crazy about this game." Looking at his account, he owns one game, this one, and has 928 hours played. He does not lie.

Christ, when you started moving Bradman's head I choked on food because of a Giant Bomb video for the second time this week.

Also, I said it in the UPF this game first appeared, but as an Australian it never ceases to delight me how disrespectful of a national treasure this appears.

I don't know much (anything) about cricket, but I felt compelled to look up Don Bradman. The guy's stats seem insane. As a sports fan I can always appreciate incredible performances from 'before my time'. Juan Manuel Fangio is another such example, although this guy Don takes the cake. Extraordinary human beings are interesting. Always makes me wonder if we'll ever see (and recognise) the next Mozart / Fangio / Bradman / Da Vinci of our time.

Yeah, I'm not a big sports fan (other than F1), and certainly not a soccer fan, but I found http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/lionel-messi-is-impossible/ really cool. Statistically, Messi is a crazy outlier.

I have no idea how this sport works but it's fun to watch them dick around.

Funniest first 5 minutes of a QL I can remember. Usually I get frustrated when the guys play a sports game, but when they play a game of a sport that I also have no idea about, it's pretty hilarious.

This is a really decent cricket game. I've owned it for months now and really like it.

This is not how cricket or this game is meant to be played.

It was fantastic.

Wai-wai-wait. Fucking cricket (of all sports) has predator vision and yet the MLB can't even figure out instant replay? smh

I did not mean swearing. This site is full of it. I meant the "idiot" part.

Maybe you should read the forum rules.

These games may be terrible to play, But damn the videos they've done on these cricket games are freaking hilarious. Of course it wouldn't be possible without resident cricket expert Danny O' Dywer.

I want the next Madden game have the same loading screen.

No chance that I'm licensing our man Bradman to EA.

PS: Our font looks nothing like EA's font :p

"As a European I assume he knows about cricket" If we go on the British line of Britain not being part of Europe because they're not part of the continent then NO ONE IN EUROPE KNOWS ABOUT THIS DAMN SPORT! =) Don't blame us, Dan! =P

I'm halfway through and this is already one of the best pieces of content in a long while! =)

Between this and the Ashes video, I'm pretty sure I totally understand how to play Cricket now. Weird.

No Dan is not crazy, a flight of beers is a real thing. It's just a sampler of different brews and yes it does look like a cricket bat.

I hope their player creator engine can handle Mitchel Johnson's mo.

Edit: Well they certainly modelled his aggro!
Also all the chicken sponsorship boards are there because KFC is one of the big cricket sponsors in Australia. Big Ant were taking the piss with the slogan as the other big chicken chain's (Red Rooster) popular sub is called a "Rippa".

There we go, way too much info on take away chicken in Australia.

Dan's desire to be the "bad boy of cricket" set me on a path I couldn't get off until this was done.

So here you are, I guess.

Now we need a version of that chicken ad, but instead it says "Rykert - you bloody ripper"
