International Cricket (Aus, Prototype 19920824)

Nintendo NES 1992 Laser Beam
International Cricket is a cricket video game for the Nintendo Entertainment System that was only released in Australia in 1992. Developed by Melbourne-based Beam Software, it was the only cricket game released for the NES. There were no attempts to release a cricket video game to the North American, Japanese, or European markets. The reason is that baseball games dominated the North American and Japanese markets while soccer dominated the European market during that era.

Naming parodies

The game featured all the major Test cricket playing nations but no official team and player licensing in place. This meant that player names within the game, particularly for the Australian team, were parodies on the actual names of cricket players at the time. Following is a list of player names from the game and their respective actual names from Test-playing teams.

  • A. Boulder - Allan Border
  • M. Sailor - Mark Taylor
  • D. Boost - David Boon
  • G. Swamp - Geoff Marsh
  • J. Dean - Dean Jones
  • S. Mars - Steve Waugh
  • I. Hilly - Ian Healy
  • R. Bruce - Bruce Reid
  • M. Ewes - Merv Hughes
  • C. McDirt - Craig McDermott
  • H. Mervyn - Merv Hughes
  • P. Tail - Peter Taylor
  • T. Oldman - Terry Alderman
It is unknown why Merv Hughes' name was parodied twice, however this could probably be attributed to his cult status of the time.

Variations of player names for other countries do not appear to be as obvious, however there is a player in the West Indies team called "R. Marley", a reference to Jamaican reggae musician Bob Marley.


International Cricket was followed by an updated sequel for the Super NES, Super International Cricket, in 1994. Beam Software would also develop Cricket 96 and Cricket 97 for EA Sports.
