There’s less than 24 hours to go until Mitch Johnson may be tasked with trying to land the first ball of the 2013-14 Ashes series somewhere near the pitch, unlike Steve Harmison in 2006-07.

To coincide with this momentous occasion, we’ve just released a major update to Stick Cricket – now available on the App Store, Google Play and Amazon.

New features include:

  • Improved gameplay  We’ve completely rewritten the game from the ground up to drastically enhance game performance. Previously on some devices running Stick Cricket felt like watching Jonathan Trott bat. With Ed Cowan. In slow motion. This is no longer the case.
  • New graphics  As is the trend in cricketing circles, we’ve given the game a major facelift.  This includes  a brand new stadium: Adelaide, the venue of the second Test.
  • Two Player – Thrashing your mates, via WiFi or Bluetooth, is now a vastly improved experience.
  • Academy – The best place to hone your technique is now even better. Book your spot early before Boof Lehmann arrives with the Aussie top-order for emergency coaching.
