Both the Xbox 360 and PC versions of the game will feature online play, with the PS2 game limited to single-system multiplayer modes.

In the Xbox 360 game, Xbox Live will enable players to take part in online tournaments, including the ICC World Cup 2007 and ICC Champions Trophy 2006, leagues, exhibition and warm up matches. There will also be online leaderboards and achievements to gain.

The PC game will feature LAN and online multiplayer, and like the Xbox 360 version will feature leagues, tournaments including the ICC World Cup 2007, and exhibition and warm up matches.

Both versions will enable up to 16 players to take part in online tournaments, and up to eight players will be able to sit back and watch a match being played.

"We're proud that Brian Lara International Cricket 2007 is again raising the bar for cricket video games by being the first and only title in the genre to offer full online play on Xbox 360 and PC," said John Jennings, Executive Producer of Brian Lara International Cricket 2007.

Besides all the talk of online play, Codemasters has revealed that the game has officially licensed the use of the ICC Champions Trophy 2006 and the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007, meaning you will get accurate player models of all the stars in international cricket.

The game will also feature in-game commentary from cricket experts Jonathan Agnew, David Gower, Ian Bishop, Bill Lawry and Tony Greig, plus real player stats from Wisden, and the Hawkeye analysis system that is seen on TV.

The game will be released in March 2007 for Xbox 360, PC and PS2 to coincide with the ICC Cricket World Cup 2007.
