Cricket Captain 2021 takes to the field for a new season. An exciting year includes the final of the inaugural Test Match Championship, and the new ODI World Championship, which gives teams the chance to qualify for the 2023 World Cup. The 100 Ball competition will run for the first time, introducing a new short format game. Cricket Captain 2021 gives you the change to play in these, and many more, competitions and formats.

20 Over match simulation has been improved for Cricket Captain 2021, with a rebalanced match engine and updated batting aggression bar, providing greater control of scoring rate. We have also increased outfield catches when batsmen are attacking. The target RPO (T.RPO) indicator has been replaced with estimated RPO (E.RPO) when batting, taking changing bowler tactics into account, to give greater scoring rate accuracy. Dot ball percentage has replaced maidens in 20 Over matches to provide further information about the bowling strengths and performance of your bowlers.

The exciting atmosphere of the Super Over makes its debut in Cricket Captain. The English domestic system has been updated with the latest rules for competitions and overseas players. We have also updated the South African domestic system, with 15 new teams.

Remove cost

Please remove the paying to play the game after 6 games it’s done I was enjoying it before that just add ads to people who don’t want to pay. That’s my only complaint

Good but not after a while

I was playing an Australian first class match (batting). It was the 25th over and my computer opponent decided to bowl Nick Larkin who has never bowled in first class, list A or T20. I would be fine with this (players who don’t bowl doing so) but not whilst your opponent is 2/83. Batting feels very repetitive if you play against the same team twice because you know who they are going to bowl next over. I was playing a one day game and 3 different players bowled 10 consecutive overs. That doesn’t happen in real life.

A lot of the batsmen’s preferences feel quite random. David Warner has a ‘strong leg side preference despite being one of the best cover drivers I have ever seen. Even Rickey Ponting has a ‘strong front foot preference’. I think you know that can’t be right.

Also fix the gameplay. Your player can bowl a full ball and yet somehow the batsman plays a straight drive off the back foot. We need a larger variety of shots. I wouldn’t be surprised if there was less than 10 different animations in the game (referring to batting).

The game is also way too difficult. I have to play on ‘V easy’ to even have a chance at winning.

I like how you can sign different players from around the world to a contract in the Australian T20 league although it’s not in any other leagues (that I could find). It would be nice to see an IPL auction (like Real Cricket do)

Great game, very detailed

The gameplay is solid, the concept of managing a team (instead of directly playing like other games) is great and the detail is awesome. When playing in notable places such as Lords, the animation reflects it instead of showing a generic stadium, and there is an extensive amount of statistics and diagrams on each player and team’s history, something other games available on mobile cannot match. Along with in-match data about each player’s performance across endless graphs and tables, this reflects a commendable amount of effort put into making the game. Definitely worth the price tag, although the bowling should be made less difficult.
