Brian Lara Cricket '96 (also known as Lara '96) is a follow up to Brian Lara Cricket and the second game in the Brian Lara endorsed series of cricket video games. It was developed by Audiogenic Software for Codemasters and released in the summer of 1996 for the Sega Mega Drive and PC systems.
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 and a player editor.
Lara 96 uses the same pseudo-3D graphics used in its predecessor, but the animations and sprites have been updated.
