EA Cricket slowly faded out over time

It is said that one of the major reasons that shelved the cricket series was the sport did not have much of a global reach as compared to football. EA Cricket found its popularity only in Australia, England and New Zealand, with a majority of its market bieng in South Asia. However, piracy led to a huge loss which later led to EA discontinuing the series.
