The gameplay has been criticised for being too difficult, batting even on the easiest of difficulty levels can be a struggle.

Unlike rival game Brian Lara International Cricket 2005, this game has fully licensed players, but no licensed kits. Its popularity is in decline due to other games receiving better reviews by gamers and critics alike.[1]
