After 60 matches, another exciting season of the Indian Premier League (IPL) is over, with the Mumbai Indians successfully defending its 2019 title. In doing so, the team has become the most successful side in the Twenty20 tournament’s history. The next big bit of cricketing action starts later this month when India’s tour of Australia begins on 27 November with the first ODI in Sydney. However, this two-week gap doesn’t mean you can’t indulge in more cricket from home, on your smartphone screens.

Just like the fantasy cricket games that kept you busy during the IPL season, there are some cricket video games that are equally fun. Here’s a look at some interesting cricket games that won’t let you miss live cricketing action.
