For the Bug-Byte Software Ltd re-release:

Bugfixes provided by Darren Shacklady:
  • The instructions state that the weather conditions "Dry but windy" are favourable to slow bowlers, but due to a bug these conditions do not arise during play.
    Fixed using POKE 55346,6
  • A graphical glitch can occur when Gillespie bowls against a batsman with a long name and high score; the gameplay screen scrolls up by one line, but the player animations remain in place, creating an ugly effect. This is because the bowler description "G'llspie Fast-Med" is too long.
    Fixed by shortening his name further to "G'spie", then amending "Wright" to "J.Wright" (John Wright) to fill in the two-byte gap left in the code.
  • Some trivial spelling errors are corrected in line with information from the appropriate Wisdens: "Allot" is "Allott", "Yousef" is "Yousuf" and "Mathews" is "Matthews".
    To accommodate these changes, "D'Frtas" becomes "D'Ftas" and "M'mott" is now "M'mtt."
  • There are no Slow-Medium bowlers in the game, although provision is made in the code. The England team has three Fast bowlers and three Slow, but four Medium (plus one Fast-Med). The fix changes Allott to Slow-Med instead of Medium - maybe not accurate, but allows the chance to see what Slow-Med is like. Slow-Med bowlers take six minutes per over.
    Fixed using POKE 57443,2
