Cricket Coach 2007 PC (2007)

Developer Notes

The most obvious change from the previous version is the vastly improved user interface, which looked much more tighter and detailed. Glenn Stiemens takes all the credit for that, with Oli Norwell concentrating on speeding up the match engine, improving the depth of statistics available to the player and creating a new one-off match/series mode.

Key Advances from Cricket Coach Pro

  • All new International Series mode that allows you to pit two of the international teams against each other in a series of games. Play a series of up to 5 Test Matches, One Day Internationals or 20 Over Internationals. This mode provides ‘instant play’ and makes it easy to setup your own ‘Ashes’ series.
  • All new auto-play feature. Rather than clicking your mouse button every over you can now sit back and watch the action unfold. Perfect for those who enjoy sitting back and watching a day’s cricket unfold.
  • Improved interface – a completely new look for 2007. Smaller fonts and a vastly improved layout ensure the game is even more absorbing than before. New for 2007 is a simple scoreboard match view, showing just the key pieces of information, perfect for those who like to keep it simple.
  • For the first time in a cricket management simulation, take full control over international central contracts – choosing when to rest players from the rigours of domestic cricket.
    Reflecting real life many nations now play Twenty Over international matches as well as ODIs and Tests.

Key Features

  • Take control of any domestic team from the 10 Test Match playing nations, competing for domestic league and cups – alternatively dive in at the deep end and take charge of one of the 10 Test Match playing nations and guide them through a full calendar of Tests, One Day Internationals and World Cup’s.
  • Advanced tactical options. Create your own field settings, bowling plans, and instruct your batsmen to target different bowlers. Either dive in and decide exact bowling line/length/style for each ball, or take a backseat and use one of the many predefined tactics.
