Best Cricket Based Video Games to Play 

Cricket was never invented in India. But for Indians today, this sport has a different fan base altogether. Cricket has entered the minds and the hearts of almost all the people living in India, from those who enjoy playing the game to those who enjoy watching the game and predicting who is going to win. Whenever there is a cricket match, especially before the advent of the television or before the television entered each and every house, people would gather and huddle together in front of the only device that could tell them the score of a particular cricket match and pray that India won. The times have changed and television sets are now there in every house, but watching a cricket match live is still the most entertaining thing you will ever see. But, that’s where the Covid-19 pandemic factors in. With cricket stadiums being under lock and key for so long, and the daily or weekly cricket matches not being held, cricket enthusiasts need something to hold on to.
