No avoiding the cricket – embrace it with a game

Cricket in a bag

The Ashes are upon us, no avoiding it in the news, time to embrace the willow, wicket and seam (sic) interested for a few weeks. Load yourself up with some cricketing terms and not be stumped as the banter gets lively as we give the Australians a lesson on home turf. AS the games are at an odd hour for us Brits, perhaps it’ll be hard to keep up on the TV coverage live so grab some cricket based games and immerse yourself in the game for the coming weeks….

Owzat cricket game

Owzat is described as having the thrill of the test match, we find our thrills in this 20 day long cricketing format in the edited highlights version – and we love it. This die based game is straightforward enough, pocketable and the perfect excuse to shout cricketing terms out loud down the pub.
