Harsha Bhogle, the Indian cricket commentator and cricket expert has talked about EA’s officially licensed dropped cricket title ICC Cricket 09. Harsha Bhogle has revealed on twitter about his involvement in the game as commentator and has also said about his disappointment on EA not releasing the game last year. Here is what he has said on twitter:
“One of my biggest regrets that ea didn’t release cricket 09.spent 3 days doing commentary on it.was proud an Indian had been asked.”
“don’t think will release it now.had mark nicholas and me as voices.studio in mumbai but prod in canada listening in on skype!good experience”
“cricket games have nowhere near the kind of funding football and basketball games do.so cannot invest much in tech.we are only a tiny sport” – Said Harsha
EA Sports ICC Cricket 09 was officially licensed by ICC and was featuring the official ICC T20 World Cup 2009. The game was to be released in May 2009 for PC according to the sources but later on it was dropped by EA Sports. The game was developed by HB Studios. Since ICC Cricket 09 was dropped, cricket gamers can expect a game in 2011.

No Mr. Bhogle,
We are not a tiny sport. We simply have the largest following of the cheapest people in the world. Now I’m not saying that people in the west don’t pirate, or games like FIFA or NBA aren’t pirated. But when more than half your fan following is from the subcontinent, you should expect to make absolutely NO profit. I actually have no idea how to buy an original game in Pakistan. I assume the same applies in India.
But props to you. I’m also proud they chose a desi commentator, Richie Benauds RP accent was getting rather tedious. Especially in those 5 day tests where he NEVER seemed to stop recycling lines…
