The most notable game mode is "World Domination" in which the player has to defeat 18 of the world best cricket teams namely Bermuda, Canada, Kenya, Netherlands, Scotland, UAE, Ireland, Afghanistan, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, West Indies, Pakistan, New Zealand, England, Sri Lanka, South Africa, India, Australia(in descending order: Rank 18 to Rank 1). "Academy" allows the player to practice batting against different bowlers with different bowling styles. "World T2" allows the player to win the world cup as their own country, each game in this tournament lasts 2 overs. "Stick Cricket Multiplayer" allows the player to play online against people from all over the world, another feature allows for the first time during the game history to bowl. Many thousands of people from around the world have played and play Stick Cricket and it remains the most popular of the Stick Sports. Stick Sports established two versions to correspond with the 2010-11 Ashes series - "Ashes Fan Challenge" - where a player plays as your favourite country from Australia and England, and if you win, a point goes to the country you were playing as, but if you don't, the opposition gets one point which will be added to their total. The country with the most points wins the match. This takes out over the Ashes series, T20 games and ODI matches - and "Ashes Dominator" - where you are able to choose a country to try to achieve challenges that take out from as far back as 1974 to the final test in Sydney of the Ashes.

Stick Baseball[edit]

Stick Baseball has several game modes. "Training" replicates Spring Training. The player can have batting practice as well as play out a scenario in which the player is a slugger trying to get on a team. "All Star Slug" is like "All Star Slog" in Stick Cricket. The player can use teams from the 2006 World Baseball Classic. It's a harder match and scores will be saved in the high scores section. 1, 3, 6 or 9 innings matches can be played against the All Stars. "Home Run Derby" is a home run hitting game. The player controls a Major League Baseball club in an effort to win the Stick Sports World Club Championship each week. It has a high score chart listing in the Hall of Fame for the Biggest Hitters. A registered player also has a record of their most home runs and longest streak in the My Stats section of site. In "World Domination" mode, the player must beat all 30 of the teams in Major League Baseball. The teams are ordered by the 2006 draft order. After each stage the player receives a password to continue at a later time.
