I have the CC 2014. These later versions look similar. It works like the football managment sims; buying and selling players, coaches etc. The matches are well presented and give the same sort of control that a captain would have in a real match. During bowling, you can select/change bowlers, adjust their style, and set field placings. When batting you can set how aggressively the batsmen play and whether one should try and take more of the strike. But of course there is no direct control over the result. Like the real game the pace is slow and so plenty of spare time is needed, especially in career mode. Personally I prefer Smashtastic Cricket. Much faster paced and with some arcade type involvment in the matches.

Thanks for the feedback
Def looks like a game hat will require time and patience to get into and while I like those sometimes I don't
I've been a fan of the real cricket games
Real cricket 2016 is good I just wish it wasn't so heavy with in app purchases and instead had a 5-10$ flat fee and then it would be really good
I'm still debating on it
May grab 14 first since it's cheaper and see how I like it

Smashtastic is great, still playing that one regularly.

I'll pick this up once the funds recover from the latest app binge.

Big Cup Cricket is also worth a look if you like arcadey action.
