Besides having these features, it also has a mode called Career, allowing players to either start a career as a rookie or play as an existing established cricketer.
2. Big Bash Boom
Big Bash Boom is a Cricket game released way back in 2018. Initially, it was only released for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One but later it was launched for Nintendo Switch and PC as well. As mentioned above, it was the first major Cricket game released by Big Ant Studios.
