It's about time! Last year I asked Codemasters if they had any plans to release anything on Wii that wasn't just shovelware, to which they replied 'no'. I also suggested that they should look at bringing cricket to the Wii. They seem to have upped their Wii line up recently and now announce a cricket game, it's almost like they actually listened to me!
Personally I hate cricket but it was obvious that a Wii cricket game with decent controls could be huge in places like England or Australia.
