Ashes Cricket 2009 Demo
While baseball is definitely the most popular American sport, England has it's own variation of the game and it is called cricket. Hence, although the main ideas are similar, there are many differences between the two versions, especially when it comes to the equipment, the bats used to execute the hits and the layout of the field.
