Sadly, it plays a sub-Brian Lara Cricket game </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-enable-hero"> <div class="field-label">Enable hero:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Enable full width image </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-main-image"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_main_image" width="400" height="400" alt="" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/images/news/connectv-cricket-1_0.jpg?1364300695" /> </div> </div> </div> <p>Playing real cricket isn’t much fun. Batsmen have to waddle around with mattresses strapped to their legs and fielders are left praying a leather rock doesn’t fly into their face. </p> <p>There is a more friendly alternative, though; Radica’s interactive video game. </p> <p>As the name suggests, you don’t need a console to play Plug ‘n’ Play Cricket – it hooks up to any TV via the two AV sockets. Before the plugging and playing, though, you’ll need to go to the petrol station to pick up four AA batteries for the main console, and two more for the mini bat. </p> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-pricing"><legend>Pricing</legend><div class="field field-type-number-float field-field-test-price"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> £40.00 </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="fieldgroup group-ratings"><legend>Ratings</legend><div class="field field-type-hcmreviewrating-rating field-field-overall-rating"> <div class="field-label">Overall rating:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="hcmrating-default">6 stars</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>Review Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="messages warning">This video is not currently supported.</div> </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> </fieldset> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-verdict"> <div class="field-label">Verdict:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Fine in short bursts but isn’t a patch on the Wii for interactive sports games.
