About this game

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.

Exactly the same as previous versions. The "improvements" are extremely minor. (Wow, a changed logo and yellow helmet!) The game needs a massive makeover. It has been the same for many years and I guess the old saying "if it ain't broke, don't fix it" seems to apply to the developers. 100% not worth the money, wish I had saved my $$ and just kept playing older versions. Hopefully they actually put some effort in next year or another gaming company tries their hand at a cricket management game

No change to this game in the last 20 years I am playing this. All versions have excatly the same commetry, same kind of shots, graphics, mistakes, graphic flaws.. nothing really changed even though hard core game lovers have been giving feedbacks. Only thing that changes every time is player data & statistics, cricketing rules and some minor visual layout, which actually should be provided as an update to earlier versions. Somehow it just doesn't justify new releases.

The game is fine. It needs a few more additions to stop it going stale. Like a current ability and a potential ability (similar to football manager) and maybe a coach report so you can get some joy out of developing youngsters. Also some player and media interaction would be great. Like when you take a job the board gives you targets to achieve or a player says he wants to bat in a position or an all-rounder doesn't want to bowl anymore etc.
