TOUCH CRICKET delivers the realistic thwack of English leather on summer willow. Included in The Guardian’s top five cricketing games TOUCH CRICKET embodies the temerity and dedication required to become a first class batsman. This latest version 2.2 now features a new Test Series mode - perfect for playing along with this summer’s Ashes series!
Using multi-touch, TOUCH CRICKET challenges you to find the right combination of footwork and timing in response to each unique delivery. Face all manner of googlies, leg breaks and yorkers and deploy the most effective response as you build a score to challenge the record books. Revel in a veritable almanac of play stats (are your opening pair working? Does your tail wag?) or simply come to understand the importance of stopping for drinks on a hot day and a decent Victoria sponge.
With an immersive soundtrack, TOUCH CRICKET puts you at the crease, facing the heat of a varying attack and will require as much dedication and skill to master as the great game itself:
* Choose to represent any of the 8 great cricketing nations
* Tailor your game to the time available with Twenty20, ODI and Test modes

Really good but a few things to improve
It's an enjoyable game, especially if you want a cricket game that takes a bit more practice, patience and skill than just button bashing sixes. It is quite a simple game which I think is a strength and gameplay is good.
A few things to change would be the glitch where the ball goes into the top right corner (between 4 and 6) and you get 0 which is a bit of a pain. As many others have said, the spin bowling is too much. I don't mind the odd magic ball coming along but it's just unrealistic to have a ball that pitches, bounces straight up and then rolls into the stumps! Maybe make seam bowling a bit harder to compensate (it seems to take a genuine mistake or misjudgement of speed to get out to the seamers rather than an unplayable delivery), a bit more variable bounce or pitches that take more spin after a few days rather than vicious spin on morning 1. This might be a bit much though for a cheap and simple game. All in all though it's really good fun.
Awaiting ios11 update
Great little game rendered unusable by delayed update to support ios11.
It would be good if you could change team names and customise the teams a bit more but otherwise the simplicity of the ui and challenge of gameplay makes this brilliant. There’s a bit of a glitch when you hit the ball directly between the 4 and 6 runs zone which results in no runs. Test match hitting zones could do with being slightly bigger. But overall this is best cricket game available!
Seems to have gone into neglect of late though - summed up by the delayed response to ios11 meaning I can’t actually play it anymore. Please give this brill app the tlc it deserves!!!!
Needs a bit of work but really addictive
Like most others, the spin bowling is just too much. You can get into a flow with the medium & fast bowlers but the spinners either get you out with 5 bounces (illegal ball), come back off your bat and roll onto the stumps unrealistically, the random spin that gets you out no matter what and also the ones that spin so fast they're quicker than the fast bowlers themselves. The 0 runs for hitting between the 4 & 6 is a bit frustrating too.
