World Cricket 2001 by Eureka Software has only been released in Australia. It requires Win 95/98, SVGA and a Soundblaster or compatible soundcard. It is a sequel to World Cricket 2000 and has been written using Macromedia. In fact I can not see any differences in this new version and the web page for the games is identical to last years version with the same screenshots and features. It even still says 2000 in places.
A glance at the screenshots shows it does not have proper player details but still uses fake names (but fairly close even if they are out of date as Tailor (sic) still plays for Australia. I have not heard anything else about this game. If you know anything about this game send me details.
