Hit for six

North American cricket fans frustrated at being unable to purchase Ashes Cricket 2009 on their side of the pond should stay tuned to the Wii Shop Channel in the coming months, as the ESRB has just rated Cricket Challenge.

Gameshastra's leather-on-willow title will be the first dedicated representation of the sport to make it across the Atlantic, and although it's not the simulation many will want it's still a good opportunity to don your best cricket whites and take to the crease.

Be sure to read our Cricket Challenge review and stay tuned for the announcement of the game's release date.
