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.

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.
