Cricket 07 is a popular Cricket simulation game. Released in 2006, it is still a fan’s favorite and people still keep coming back to it regardless of the several cricket games that have been released since then.
Cricket 07 features several game types including full-length test matches of 5 days, 4-day first class matches and limited overs matches with 5, 10, 20 and 50 overs.

Cricket 07 doesn’t have as much licenses as the prior games in the series. Only four teams have full licenses for names and kits. The remaining 14 international teams in the game use random generic names and kits. But, if you still got that itch to play with real player names, you can edit the names in the Team Management mode. You can also download a third-party roster update online for that. The game graphics looks good with the stadiums and players well depicted.
Several pitches are available with varying weather conditions and match venues. You can adjust the pitch type and the weather condition. The venues available are recognizable international venues. The commentary is good and will keep you company while you slug it out. The player control and the stroke play in the game has improved from prior iterations of the EA Cricket Series, but they could be better. The AI is good and plays like a human opponent. You’ll see the AI make overthrows, fumbles and dropped catches. You can choose from five difficulty modes.

You can choose whether your batsman will play on the back or front foot. Your batsman has a confidence meter that needs to be monitored. Conservative shots at the beginning of a game are often preferred to wild shots later in the game. Player stats often reflect in their game and inexperienced batsmen will make more errors. Running between wickets is easy and you have to choose the right time for your batsman to run. Batting and fielding are fairly easy to execute in Cricket 07. Bowling is more technical, or even frustrating to execute.

- Bowled: the bowler has hit the wicket with the delivery and the wicket has 'broken' with at least one bail being dislodged (note that if the ball hits the wicket without dislodging a bail it is not out).
- Caught: the batsman has hit the ball with his bat, or with his hand which was holding the bat, and the ball has been caught before it has touched the ground by a member of the fielding side.
- Leg before wicket (lbw): the ball has hit the batsman's body (including his clothing, pads etc. but not the bat, or a hand holding the bat) when it would have gone on to hit the stumps. This rule exists mainly to prevent the batsman from guarding his wicket with his legs instead of the bat. To be given out lbw, the ball must not bounce outside leg stump or strike the batsmen outside the line of leg-stump. It may bounce outside off-stump. The batsman may only be dismissed lbw by a ball striking him outside the line of off-stump if he has not made a genuine attempt to play the ball with his bat.
- Run out: a member of the fielding side has broken or 'put down' the wicket with the ball while the nearest batsman was out of his ground; this usually occurs by means of an accurate throw to the wicket while the batsmen are attempting a run, although a batsman can be given out Run out even when he is not attempting a run; he merely needs to be out of his ground.
- Stumped is similar except that it is done by the wicketkeeper after the batsman has missed the bowled ball and has stepped out of his ground, and is not attempting a run.
- Hit wicket: a batsman is out hit wicket if he dislodges one or both bails with his bat, person, clothing or equipment in the act of receiving a ball, or in setting off for a run having just received a ball.
- Hit the ball twice is very unusual and was introduced as a safety measure to counter dangerous play and protect the fielders. The batsman may legally play the ball a second time only to stop the ball hitting the wicket after he has already played it. 'Hit' does not necessarily refer to the batsman's bat.
- Obstructing the field: another unusual dismissal which tends to involve a batsman deliberately getting in the way (physically and/or verbally) of a fielder.
- Handled the ball: a batsman must not deliberately touch the ball with his hand, for example to protect his wicket. Note that the batsman's hand or glove counts as part of the bat while the hand is holding the bat, so batsmen are frequently caught off their gloves (i.e. the ball hits, and is deflected by, the glove and can then be caught).
- Timed out; means that the next batsman was not ready to receive a delivery within three minutes of the previous one being dismissed.
- Retired out: a batsman retires without the umpire's permission, and does not have the permission of the opposition captain to resume their innings.
