After completing the tutorial basics, you can partake in some bowling and batting challenges. The game features 5 commentators. Matches are challenging and quite frustrating.

The game’s AI is clunky and unpredictable. Even when you pick the easiest difficulty mode, you can still get defeated easily. There is a simulate function that allows you to skip several parts of the match allowing the game’s AI to take over.

It is a 50/50 thing because sometimes, the AI performs well for you and other times it does not. If you allow the AI to take over your games, you forfeit trophies, venues and other unlocks. Bowling is easy and the controls aren’t difficult. You simply select the direction of the pitch that you want the ball to go to and you watch the meter.

You can trick the AI and multiplayer batsmen with your bowling. You can rotate players when bowling for better accuracy and results. Batting is fun and can be controlled in various ways.

For instance, many times fielder will keep running for the ball in the straight line even when it can just run across and cut off the ball.

Moreover, if a ball bounces in front of the fielder, it fumbles first, then wait for good 1 or 2 seconds as if it woke up from a deep slumber and then grab the ball to throw it.

Additionally, there are many overthrows just because the fielder does not react if a ball passes from the side.

So fielding is where the developers I guess, got callous.

Game data[edit]

There are three match formats. Test matches, One day matches and T-20 matches.

Additionally, to keep with the requirement of the name, there is an option of Ashes series where you can directly start playing an ashes test match between England and Australia.


Gradually as you play, you unlock different achievements, gears etc. For e.g. you can change the color of the gloves, bat etc.


The commentary is quite diversified. However, it does become a bit repetitive but it depicts the game scenario very well. Similarly, the crowd chanting and celebrations sound also creates additional ambiance to keep you hooked up with the game.

Essential improvements[edit]

I run Ashes Cricket 2009 on Windows 8, Intel I3 2.5 ghz, 4GB RAM machine and that without any graphics card and yet, that’s an overkill. The game loads blazingly fast on my laptop.

So you can run this game on a system even two or three levels down than what I have mentioned.

Officially speaking, you may require following system specifications to run this game:

  1. 2.5 GB Hard Drive space
  2. 1 GB RAM
  3. 2 GHZ processor
  4. Direct X 9.0
  5. Windows XP/Vista/7/8 etc.


So if you ask my opinion, I’d definitely recommend this game. In fact, after Brian Lara 99, this is the only game to which I’ve hooked up for so long. Otherwise, cricket games turn out to be rather boring pretty soon.
