Cricket Through the Ages is a competitive sport game themed around cricket but with little to do with the rules of that game. Players face off and aim for each other as much as wickets. Controls work by holding or tapping the screen to spin limbs and release the ball (or whatever you are holding). It’s all very silly, in a quintessentially English way.
