Cricket Fans Are Raving About Wicket Cricket Manager for iOS and Android

Cricket is the ideal sport to receive the management game treatment, which is why it’s a bit mystifying that there aren’t more cricket management sims on the market.

Wicket Cricket Manager – created by passionate indie developer Manny – is here to fill the void, and it’s an absolutely fantastic example of the genre, allowing you to experience the daily business of running your very own cricket team.

Right now it’s sitting at 4.4 stars on the Google Play Store and 4.3 stars on the App Store, making it one of the most acclaimed cricket games on mobile.

It’s also one of the most enjoyable. You start off by choosing a national league to play in, with Australia, South Africa, England, India, and all the major cricketing powers represented.

Then you get to pick your region before embarking on an unlikely quest to rise from the lowest division all the way to the top.

Along the way you’ll do pretty much everything a real life cricket team manager would do, from cultivating new talent at the youth academy to recruiting and nurturing the established superstars of the sport.

Wicket Cricket Manager sees you negotiating contracts, building a world-class training facility for your players to practice in, expanding your stadium to accommodate ever-larger crowds, and setting-up sponsorship deals to keep your club in business.

But that’s just the business stuff. You’ll also get into the nuts and bolts of the cricket itself, examining player statistics and fitness levels in order to field the best possible team for any given match.

That means knowing not only where to put your top order batters, your slow left-armers, and your all-rounders, but also which players are ill or injured.

As in life, injuries and illnesses can strike at any time, ensuring that every match, tournament, and campaign comes with its own unique challenges.

There’s a lot to deal with, from contract lengths to reputation rankings to ticket prices. But the simple, intuitive interface and the rapid pace of the gameplay mean that Wicket Cricket Manager never gets tedious or overwhelming.

To check out it for yourself, head to the Google Play Store or the App Store and download it for free right now.
