Cricket 96 is a cricket game for the MS-DOS PCs that was released in 1995. The sequel to Super International Cricket on the SNES, it was developed by Melbourne House (as Beam Software) and published by EA Sports. It was released as Ian Botham's International Cricket 96 in Europe.

Despite featuring improved graphics, like its predecessors the game continued to forgo official team and player licensing, although many of the in-game players had recognisable real-life counterparts.

Melbourne House followed Cricket 96 with one sequel, Cricket 97, the following year.
