Brian Lara Cricket '96 Wikipedia
The style and method of game play is almost identical to previous versions of the game. Lara '96 featured the updated player names and statistics of the 1997 cricket season. Notable additional features include the capability to play as English county sides as well as a player editor.
Lara '96 uses the same pseudo-3D graphics used in its predecessor, but the animations and sprites were updated. This game uses a serial EEPROM (24C65 type) for backup.
