Warm up for the game of the summer – PC demo of Brian Lara International Cricket now available!

New York – July 6, 2005 – Set to be the official game of the summer, it’s time to pad up and practice your spin drives and googlies with the PC demo of Brian Lara International Cricket, now available for download from www.codemasters.com/brianlara

Step up to the crease playing as England, Australia or the West Indies in a one-day warm-up of six overs played at world famous cricketing venue The Oval. Test your skills and try smashing the ball to all parts of the boundary like world-record holding batsman Brian Lara, or see if you can beat the Aussies again!

The demo is available in two download sizes. The full demo comes complete with atmospheric commentary from David Gower, Tony Greig, Jonathan Agnew, Ian Bishop, and Bill Lawry. Alternatively a 350Mb demo without commentary is also available.

In the full game you’ll be playing as some the most powerful international cricket professionals from every team in the ICC Champions Trophy and ICC Cricket World Cup 2003. The top-level batsmen all have their own signature shots featured in the game: including the stylish one-knee cover drive, the risky but hugely effective hook from outside off stump and Lara’s own signature pull shot, which continues to plunder runs from the world’s greatest bowlers.

As the game that gives everyone the chance to be the best in international cricket, Brian Lara International Cricket will hit you for six when it’s released on July 21st– the first day of the hugely anticipated Test Ashes series – by Codemasters for PC via www.codemasters.com.
