Teams will be available for download through the scenario creator mode to allow players to recreate matches from the past.
“Before every cricket game that we produce, we give players the full suite of customisation tools early and before launch,” said Ross Symons, CEO of Big Ant Studios. “With the scenario creator in Cricket 19, you’ll be able to then relive your thrilling run chases and glorious victories from the comfort of your living room.”

Symons said: “We thought that this would be the way that players can enjoy the game their way, right down to their local club experience. We’re looking forward to seeing local and community teams put themselves into the game, so they can recreate their own classic matches and moments of glory.”
Cricket 19 is now available for Steam on PC, and later this month for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch.
