Brian Lara Cricket [PSX] World Cup Match: England v Scotland

The Cricket World Cup is just around the corner. In anticipation, I decided to create a 'Battle of Britain' scenario in Brian Lara Cricket for the original Playstation. Here, England are pitted against minnows Scotland (me), in a ten over match on the Test level. Who will emerge victorious?

Misc. Brian Lara Cricket [PSX] gameplay videos

Super batsman cheat

An over of Brian Lara Cricket Superman cheat. Just enter 'SUPERMAN' in the classic match passcode box.

Small bug

A common glitch in which the computer batsman is not ready to face a delivery immediately following the start of play. This allows you to get a free shot at his stumps. The glitch is shown here in the practice mode but it also occurs in matches.

Bowling tactic

One method of getting the computer batsmen out in Brian Lara Cricket. Get a spin bowler to pitch a full toss on off stump. Be warned, this can leak a lot of runs if you are inaccurate or unlucky, so set fields accordingly.

Beach mode

Beach cricket courtesy of Brian Lara Cricket on PSX. Uses the big balls and beach mode cheats: SUNSHINE and BIGBALLS if I remember rightly.

Classic match

Playing one of the scenario matches. Oh yeah, this is carried out on the Village difficulty level so if I can't do it then I suck.
