Don Bradman Cricket – Making Gaming Videos!

cricket-ball-295206_640For years I’ve wanted a decent game that I could play which replicated my favorite sport – cricket! I have played the old Brian Lara games back on old gen consoles, but they’re not as good as the current consoles which allow for more detail, if you look at the capacity these consoles have such as the FIFA 16 games which have so much management detail and different modes.

Anyway, Don Bradman cricket provides a good way to play cricket on the Xbox or other consoles, I love my xbox and have even been recording my gameplay videos using my amazing capture card which I found on

Don Bradman cricket leaves a little to be desired in a few areas, but generally it is a pretty cool game. The running between the wicket could be a little bit better, and playing against Australia is unrealistically difficult (they must be superhuman on the game for some reason!) I have run a career mode which is awesome, and allows you to pick a team to play for and a country, and work your way up through the ranks. The stats are pretty good, it keeps all your averages etc.

My capture card review was good, and it is living up to expectation as the footage I am getting is of a really high standard and is High Definition which is wonderful, I am just using the videos to put on youtube at the moment but in the long term I may even look to edit them and make some really cool effects etc. or even do a career mode people can follow through to the end and watch me scale the heights.

Why We Love Golf (Not Just Cricket!)

golfI love a lot of sports, one of the absolute best fun being Golf. So what do we love about this precise and high technology sport?

Being Outside

I adore the daylight, I like being out in the wind, the odor of the grass. Hell, I even love playing golf and strolling through all 18 holes in bad weather. It is so pleasant to just be outside appreciating a decent walk and getting some physical and mental enthrallment

Being Challenged

As I touched on in my last point, I cherish mental challenges. Along these lines, I adore having to plan and be challenged. Give me a danger/reward choice on each shot. Shoot… give me two or more on one opening. That is the thing that makes the whole process fun. Whether I have the technology such as a rangefinder or I’m just playing on my own judgement.

The trip

I want to play new courses. I discover the revelation of something new on each fairway or green to be intriguing. Be that as it may, I too like the genuine outing to get to the place I’m playing. Whether it is taking a street trip inside my home county and seeing some new towns or flying out to another part of the nation (or the world), I cherish it. Encountering new societies, new scenes, and meeting new individuals is continually fascinating and beneficial to me. If I had the money, as I’m sure many would agree, I would go all around the world looking to play golf on the courses we all know from Malaysia to Scotland, America to Spain. The sport is known globally and there is a reason for this.

How to Swing a Cricket Ball When Bowling

cricket-ball-295206_640The standard technique used to make a ball swing involves the bowling team working to make one side clean and smooth and the other side battered and uneven. The bowler will then hold the ball with seem upright and indicating in the way they will then go ahead and bowl. The un-smooth side is held to the side of the stumps the bowler wants it to move towards.

For instance, to send the ball outwards where the main principal is that the ball moves in the air and goes far from the batsman toward the slip cordon, the bowler holds the ball with the crease pointing to the slips and the bad side of the ball on this side of the stumps.

What makes a ball swing?

The surfaces of the two sides of the ball power air to consider the two parts at two separate velocities. Air moves gradually over the bad side of the ball but flies rapidly over the clear side (which has low weight), having a stress effect makes the net power to push the ball towards the harsh side.

The climate can likewise influence the measure of development of the ball. On moist overcast days when there is not much wind, the ball is known to move around in the air more. The hypothesis is that the air is, on days like this, denser and therefore amplifies the impacts of the two different sides of the ball.

The system of the bowler additionally appears to have an impact. It appears that the bowlers with a sideways method discover it less demanding to bowl outwards, and those who come at it from a frontward movement it is less difficult to send the ball inwards.

Cricket All Stars 2015 – What Did it Achieve?

shane warneShane Warne and Sachin Tendulkar have taken their respective groups in a three-match T20 display voyage through the USA. The matches took place in New York, LA and Houston and the occasion, titled “Cricket All-Stars Series 2015”, highlighted more than 25 resigned classic players with great records from other Test countries.

The matches happened throughout november with Warne’s team taking the series 3-0 The initial two recreations are were to be played in the daytime while the last diversion at Dodger Stadium was scheduled to be played under the lights with a great atmosphere

Warne had said he will likely bring the tournament back with many of the cricketers already signed up to play in future years, so did it increase in popularity? Well around 100,000 people attended the events and cricket has at least registered on the radar of many americans for the first time. Baseball fans were particularly interested as the stadiums were all traditionally used for their sport. Every one of the three are baseball stadiums – homes of the NY Mets, Houston and the world famous Dodgers – and the pitches were created at a respectable halfway point stretching out toward the inside field divider.

This surely needs to continue if it is to work long term, but for now, Sachin and Shane have made a big step in the right direction, and had a good time in the process. The on pitch microphones were a particular highlight as we listened to cricket greats while they played, and commentators even conversed with them during the match.
