I’m very happy that in last edition, you introduced keyboard controls. That is one of the requested features that time but controls seemed a little unpolished as we cannot find the possible gaps in field with arrow keys.
So I am suggesting that using mouse gives better control on direction of shots than arrow keys as can point only in 8 directions and moving batsman positioning control to arrow keys.
If there is any issue regarding using mouse as a controller then you may use right and left arrow keys to turn the shot direction in clockwise and anticlockwise directions so that players can select the shot direction easily even without using mouse
We can enjoy the cricket games with controller man. Please buy a controller and learn to play and rather request for gameplay improvements
Yes controller always will be the primary mode of playing , but as they added keyboard support too it is necessary to make it playable with it
