If standing around in a field waiting for a shiny red ball to come rocketing your way so that you can catch it to be rewarded the screaming and applause of the crowd is your idea of fun, then you might want to check out International Cricket 2010.
You can grab hold of a copy of the game on the Xbox or PS3 for £17.99, which'll save you exactly £3 on the next best offer on the 360 and exactly £4 on the PS3 version.

You've got your pick of 16 international teams, including England, Australia, and Canada, made up of all your favourite players and they can slog it out against their opponents in one of the 21 stadiums that are present in the game. There are also a number of tournaments for you to take part in, as well as an online mode if you want to thrash your friends over the internet.
My opinion of the game will be somewhat biased because I hate cricket, I can't think of anything more boring than sitting through a test match, or even a Twenty20 session for that matter, and the novelty of being able to take part soon wears off, as I've found is the case with the majority of cricket games I've played, which go all the way back to the days when Graham Gooch still used to be part of the England team.
Cricket fans will not be swayed by my comments though and are likely to be the only people who'll get any enjoyment out of this whatsoever, for everybody else I'd save your money for a game that won't make you feel like you've spent 8 hours in front of the TV when it's really only been 10 minutes!
