Stick Cricket, the worldwide cricket gaming phenomenon, today launches a new game mode for iOS to celebrate the start of the 2012 Indian Premier League.

Available as an in-app upgrade (99c/69p) to the FREE Stick Cricket app - - ‘Stick Cricket Premier League’ offers gamers the chance to play as their favourite IPL team in a bid to win the coveted trophy.

The tournament mode captures the unique essence of T20 Premier League cricket. Boasting a plethora of international superstars spread across the nine teams, the shorter game length – each match lasts just a few minutes – means every delivery is crucial.

The Premier League experience becomes even more nerve-wracking come finals time (that is, if you’re good enough to qualify), with a two-over do-or-die clash enough to get even a seasoned Stick Cricketer sweating.

Stick Cricket, a “title of legendary status” (Pocket-Lint), was first launched on iOS in late 2010 and has been a constant fixture in the App Store charts in all cricket-loving countries since.

Stick Cricket Premier League is also available as an in-app purchase for Stick Cricket HD:
