Ashes Cricket demo now on Xbox Live

Try out this "exciting" and "thrilling" "sport".

A new demo of Ashes Cricket 2009 is now available on Xbox Live.

As reported by Major Nelson, it'll let you experience "the most exciting and thrilling confrontation in international cricket".

Ashes Cricket 2009 will be released for PS3, Wii and Xbox 360 on 7th August, which is the first day of the fourth real-life Ashes test at Headingley, whatever that means. You can take part in test matches and ODIs as well as Twenty20 games, which it turns out do not involve playing cricket while heavily under the influence of low-end fortifified wine. Disappointing.

For videos and screenshots, visit the gamepage. For advice on hair loss, ask Shane Warne.
