Description

Cricket Captain 2023 puts you in control. Create your own legacy. A packed international schedule includes the oldest Test Match rivalry in cricket as Australia tour England, the test championship final and 2023 World Cup. Test Match cricket was shaken up by a new aggressive approach in 2022, nicknamed Bazball, creating some of the most thrilling matches in history. Our new aggression system, inspired by Bazball, uses batting ability and natural aggression based on the current batting tactic, rather than the type of match being played. A generation of cricketers brought up on 20 Over Cricket have naturally aggressive styles that mean many have higher one-day averages than first class. Batting aggressively to match their natural style can improve performance. Equally, knocking runs off at 12 an over is natural to players in the last overs of a 20 over (or even Test) match.

Cricket Captain 2023 also includes historical data for international player rankings and player recent form, including recent performances in Test, ODI and 20 Over Internationals. International team ranking has been remodelled using results of every match in the four-year window. New wicket keeper statistics are also included, with separate fielding stats for keepers and outfielders, as well as byes conceded records. Wicket keeper abilities are also now more accurate.

All domestic systems have been updated to include the latest developments in India, South Africa and around the world.

Key features for 2023 include:
  • Match Engine: new Bazball inspired player aggression and rating system.
  • Updated International Team Rankings: calculated from last 4 years results.
  • International Player Rankings: with historical data, all-rounders and improved system.
  • Asia Trophy: play in ODI and 20 Over International tournaments.
  • Player Form: includes historical data, opposition and an updated system.
  • Recent Internationals: recent international player form graphs.
  • Wicket Keeper Statistics: keeper and outfield catches, byes conceded.
  • Wicket Keeper Ability: greater accuracy for keeping ability.
  • Stadium Model Updates: including new Perth stadium.
  • New South African Franchise League: six new teams.
  • Indian Domestic System: major update to all competitions.
  • Domestic System Updates: all systems updated to latest rules and formats.
  • Improved Player Generation: rebalanced with focus on player aggression.
  • New Kits: including international and Australian 20 Over.
  • Test and ODI Championships: updated for the 2023 season.
  • Tournament Modes: play in stand-alone One Day or 20 Over World Cups. Create your own World XIs, All-Time Great and Custom Match Series.
  • Interface: improved screen layout and flow.
Complete Stats Update for the 2023 Season:
  • Updated player database with over 7,500 players.
  • Added historical keeper and outfield stats.
  • Updated versus, ground and team records with partnerships, bowling and batting records.
  • Updated domestic squads for all 146 playable domestic teams.
  • Updated recent series stats for all players.

Reviews about the game

Cricket Captain 202305.07.2023

Initially when I reviewed this I pointed out things I didn't like. Having played a further 18 hours, I want to revise the review. The game is fine to kill time. I put it on while I listen to podcasts in French because I'm trying to learn the language. But it is absolutely the most infurating game full of missed potential. In well over a decade the UI has not changed once. It's been the same since I played International Cricket Captain 3 on my PSP ffs. It's not changed one tiny bit. Little, basic things that I think should be standard or available aren't. There's no way to track how fast a bowler is bowling. There is no way to track how good they are at getting swing, or reverse swing, or bowling over 90, or actually doing anything to help train that bar "aggressive" or "defensive" bowling. I have a bowler who is "LF" - this is completely meaningless. Okay, he's fast - how fast? How fast does he bowl on average? Could I find another bowler who bowls quicker? Could I find a bowler who bowls not quite as quick, but is more proficient at getting swing out of the ball? Well, no, I can't do any of this. Because none of it is in the game. My best bet is to look at their bowling average and that's it. There is nothing at all in this game that gives you any indication of what a bowler is actually good at. Batters have "preferences" - but they're so vague and useless. "Slight back foot preference" - okay? So? I would much rather have a list of what kind of shots they're good at, what they're bad at, how their footwork is, where their technique could improve. But, again, the training is so completely useless and non-specific to anything. I can't train them in their footwork. I can train aggressive, off side, leg side, defensive. But, like... This doesn't help me figure out where they're good or bad or what needs work. I want to train my batters on what they're weak at but I can't because the game doesn't tell me. There are no attributes - so claiming "this batter has improved his offside batting" is pointless. How much has he improved? A lot? A little? The game essentially boils down to what length you want to bowl and how aggressively you want to bat. The "bazball" system is barely noticeable. Also, telling someone to keep the strike is completely pointless because no matter what you do they just don't ever bother. I just don't understand when you've got a sport that has so many statistics and intricacies in how it's played you put out a game that's so shallow every single year and demand more and more money for it. The fact that this game has been a series for over a decade and you still haven't even got the word "swing" in it anywhere is insanity.

I bought the very first edition of this game back in the late 90s and loved it. But the lack of development in the 25 years since is astounding. I still buy it every few years hoping for big improvements - and whilst the match engine may be better 'under the hood' - most things are still their same basic self and it is immensely disappointing. When bowling you still only have three options for length and three options for line - that hasn't changed since 98. There are still no attributes for players, no detail on player potential, only a very basic sense that training may be working (so and so has improved his keeping is about it). The animations on match highlights are still rudimentary - there's the addition of a reverse sweep this year but it still looks so dated. There's no sense of man management in the team - negotiations are simple and then that's it. No interaction with your players at all. There are so many basic frustrations too. You can't sort any columns on squad or record pages - ie sort by average, runs, wickets etc. Surely this would be very easy to put into the game. Everything seems to require one more click than it should. The depth of stats and players has improved no doubt. And you can now look at a players record by team - but there's no 'season by season' at a glace list of how a player has performed. No simple to way to guage how he has improved or otherwise. Overall another very disappointing game and a real lack of effort in developing it that goes back years. All from a very promising start a quarter of a century ago. If you've bought this game before, don't bother again.

I really don't understand this developer you have a good foundation and a good fan base why don't you improve the game or you wanna end up like FIFA? seriously do something useful youth development is near non existent I don't even know what the players improve and by how much its like throwing a dice if anyone knows how to take zimbabwae for example from 2 stars to 4 stars? is that even possible? I'm never buying this game again if it doesn't improve

Another year, another CC release in which we all have to say it's the same game with little development and, somehow, more technical issues. What is new is that the balancing is all over the place now. One day cricket has always been an issue in Cricket Captain because there simply has been no balance in aggression and bowlers, and now that's been transposed into long-form cricket to emulate "Bazball." The result being even the worst first-class sides will score at sevens and your bowlers don't matter. Add to that, no women's cricket (players still called "batsmen") even though its 2023, the same team selection as last time with top-order batters batting eight, no development in management and development of players, same issues as the game has always had - including running like you'd expect Cricket Captain 2013 to on Windows 11. Using smaller teams to try and bring them up is pointless and, like 2022, teams like Ireland and Zimbabwe in the international mode simply don't get generate new players. One positive, it's blue now, which means it's vaguely easier to read than the green, though the UI remains confusing (increase arrows being on the left will never be intuitive) and changes in layout mean bugs like the average overlay for bowlers staying forever is more common. Just... the same game with a database update that wears thin very quickly.

Developers seem to be resting on their laurels, no real improvement or significant change compared to previous editions, unfortunate that this is the only cricket sim available on the market. Lots of aesthetic changes, including UI and look of match engine but still functions as it has in previous years. Feels like a slog to play, not sure what the dev team are getting paid for but with this game being at £25.00, they're stealing a living. Again another glorified DLC presented as a brand new edition of a game, very disappointed.

Again, It's Ok. I bought every game for 20 odd years but stopped after 2020 to leave it a few years to get the benefit of more "updates". The three year gap hasn't seen any massive changes to the game though the T20 sim is better. I haven't had every batter in the last 2 overs get out first ball as used to happen with too much regularity back then. I've also noticed a new shot in the match engine. A reverse sweep or pull? I only really have 2 gripes. One technical and one to do with the game itself. Technically, the selection of line and length when bowling has been unnecessarily messed up with now a 3 click toggle "outside off, off, middle" you have to toggle through them same with full, length and short of a length. You can't just click on the line and length any more. Not sure why they've done that - unless it's to make it easier for the Ipad conversion? Either way - I'm not a fan The bigger issue is the same as always. It's basically still the same game. The match engine tweak makes it a better gameplay experience than 2020 but other than that it still has the same daft issues and lack of progress. I've long since given up thinking this game will ever add new features or game elements. After 20 odd years it's clear the devs don't have the resources. But some issues are still irksome and probably could be removed without having to make a whole new engine. Overseas Players They say "100%" availability. Then they all get picked to play for their nations. In just the second year of my first game 4 of my 5 overseas player (and I only give them a contract if their availability is 100%) has gone to play for their nation in the T20 world cup or a test match. What is more annoying is that of the 5 (2 FC, one FC replacement and 2 T20 players) only one of them had ever played international cricket before. It seems that spending budget on overseas players is far too much of a lottery. The last gripe has nothing to do with the game but with English cricket. About half way through the season all your good players go and play The Hundred and you get nothing for it IRL teams do get compensated as the recent report on the massive losses (9 million UK£) the Hundred has accrued points out. The report detailing the losses makes clear that the 9 million lost does not include compensatory payments made to counties, which they say would add about 1.5 million more over the 2 years it has run so far. Hmmm makes you wonder how they have managed to gift profits to small clubs around the country based on The Hundred profits. How do you profit share when you have made a 9 million loss? What profit are they talking about. Seems to me if they never even did the Hundred they'd have (at least) 9 million more they could give to small clubs and grass roots cricket? I don't know. Maybe maths is confusing for the EWCB. Glad I'm not their accountant. Anyway, as a once every 3 or 4 years purchase it's just about thumbs up. For the second largest spectator sport in the world. This being the only and by default best simulator of that sport is a pretty sad state of affairs. But that's where we are.
