Countdown Cricket lets you to play your version of The Hundred anytime, anywhere! The app will allow you to quickly and easily score a match of countdown cricket, in a fun, interactive environment. It’s fast, simple and designed for all skill levels. Simply find a space to play with 2 players per team, choose the number of balls for each team to bat for, and you’re ready to go.
When you start a new game, you’ll be able to choose between Standard (One wicket per batter. When out, next batter is up) or Pairs (Bat in a pair for a set number of balls, lose 5 runs for each wicket), before then selecting how long you want your game to be – this can be done by selecting the number of balls you want to play for, or the amount of time you have to play. You’ll also then get a chance to select the number of players you’ll have on each team.
As Countdown Cricket is your version of The Hundred, you can choose to play as one of The Hundred Teams – who’s your favourite? Pick from all 8 teams from the Hundred, or add your own custom team and create your own team name.
The scoring itself is super easy to use, as you’re playing simply select the number of runs made or record a wicket, and the app will automatically countdown the number of balls you have remaining. When you’ve run out of balls, swap teams!
You’ll be able to view loads of stats from your game, and even look back at old games you’ve played to track how well you’ve done.
