I have fallen foul of the bandwidth limits of my web provider. I have a transfer limit of 1.5Gb per month which was exceed on 26 December. I have to pay 25 per month per additional 500Mb transferred which perversely is more than the normal monthly charge of 19.95. If this continues in January I will have to do something to address this situation or look for another provider as I want CricketGames.com to be able to grow. This index page has received over 6000 hits this month alone. A small reminder that to help support this site you can buy the CricketGames.com CD-ROM which is a very good CD-ROM dedicated to cricket or you can register International Test Cricket.

After saying that World Cricket was the worst cricket game ever Ken Daniels claims he has a cricket game, Howzat World Cricket Quest, that is even worse. I have never heard of this game so if anyone else has experiences of it please send them in. Ken is sending me the game so I can review it for these pages but it will take a few weeks to arrive as he is based in New Zealand and I am in the UK.

Has anyone heard of a game called International Cricket Challenge? It was published by Spectre Software in 1991 and may well have been only an Australian release. I have got this game but it was originally released on 5" disk and was copy protected so the copy I have on 3" disk does not work. If you have got this please send me details or better still if you have got a version installed that does not require copy protection send me a copy. I have the original disks and manual but can not play the game.
