Anil Kumble's Googly Cricket Challenge is that latest game in the Googly series (previous games were Anil Kumble's Googly Independence Cup and Anil Kumble's Googly World Cup 97). I hope this game sees a wider audience than previous games in the series as it is very detailed in its simulation and quite addictive.
The following description and features list has been copied from the Anil Kumble's Googly Products page.
