The Cricket offerings on MX Games range from City Cricket Battle from Gamezop, Cricket War from Galobe, MX Premier League Quiz from Nazara Technologies, Cricket Champions from Hammerplay, MX Cricket Fantasy from Cricclubs, and MX Cricket Predictor from GameOn. While the first four are hyper-casual games, the latter is based on fantasy and prediction.
