Cricket Captain 2022 is primed and ready, putting you in control. Can you manage your team to victory? A compelling year of cricket includes the 20 over World Cup and crucial internationals, overseen by a new England management structure. Cricket Captain includes a major re-structure of the player aggression system in both FC and one-day matches, providing greater realism, coaching options and analysis.
Limited over matches have been the main focus of development for Cricket Captain 2022, with new ball impact and swing movement balanced to reduce the wickets lost in white ball matches. Batsmen also settle more quickly, making collapses less prevalent. The aggression system mirrors a player’s real strike rate precisely, modelling boundary hitting and accumulation ability. With new separate aggression ratings for all players for First Class and Limited Over match types, white ball cricket has never been as dynamic.
