International Test Cricket Registered is a cricket simulator for Windows PC.

In International Test Cricket Registered, players get the chance to test their cricket knowledge to plan out the ideal match during five-day tournaments. This non-graphical, statistic based game is all about the strategy of the game. Players pick a starting eleven team out of an assortment of players, then the player-as-coach and strategist fine tunes the game using the interface. For instance, players may need to be repeatedly refining batting as well as bowling aggression as well as protecting plays from strike and timing when to go with the ball.

International Test Cricket Registered is purely figure-based rather than graphical, the user interface is simple. Menu buttons allow players to direct actions during the cricket match, the mouse is used for overs, and little icons display onscreen explaining what has happened for each play. Text commentary adds to the simulation and can be viewed at various points such as the score milestone.

What makes International Test Cricket Registered modern rather than dated software is the fact that updates allow for the latest squads to appear in the game alongside their averages, giving players a more real-to-life experience.

For diehard cricket fans, International Test Cricket Registered offers the intellectual stimulation of being in the coach's chair from the comfort of home.

According to the game designer, the game is the work of more than two years of testing and coding, resulting in a cricket simulator with accurate and realistic results. Cricket Games also has a number of other software titles about cricket, which are shared between multiple companies and game designers. Other titles in development include World Cricket, Cricket Manager, Cricket Player, County Cricket Manager 2002, Millennium Cricket and half-dozen freeware cricket games.

Some promising features in International Test Cricket Registered include complete player averages and records, play against AI, play one on one with a friend, squads of 20 players to pick from when designing teams, choices of weather and outfield conditions, batting and bowling order, a two squad league option, printable scorecards and records, and the ability to email scorecards and records using the program's software.

Players of International Test Cricket Registered will need a Windows PC running any type of Windows operating system from 2005 onward, and 1.1 MB hard-drive space.
