The game was initially delayed from November 25 to December 2, and has now been released with a critical day 1 patch, which Big Ant recommends that the players should download immediately.

To recall, the game’s delay was mainly due to a scandal involving Australian cricketer Tim Paine, who was on the original cover art for the game. After this, the company had to redevelop the cover art, other visuals, and team lists.

Cricket 22 is priced at Rs 2,999 on Steam for PC, and at Rs 3,999 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox. The game is available via online stores, and the physical edition of the game is currently available via Game Loot, Games The Shop, and Prepaid Game Card.
