I’ve got a long train journey ahead of me on the weekend, which is the perfect accompaniment for the Switch and a boundary or two.
I’m still working on my Cricket 19 save on the Switch, slowly knocking my way into contention for Australian selection. It’s been a good way to test out the new SN30 Pro+ controller I picked up recently from Amazon, especially since the game’s classic controls for bowling aren’t conducive for long-lasting JoyCons (rotating the left thumbstick sounds like a perfect way to get controller drift).
