Cricket season stays on throughout the year. Millions of people tune in to sports channels to watch their favorite game, but not everyone one can do that.
Sometimes you just have to rely on your smartphone to stay up to date with the ongoing match while you are at work, school or at a party, right??
And what better way to follow Cricket on your smartphone than with a Cricket app!!
So here are some of the best cricket apps available for Android right now.
ESPN Cricinfo is one of the most popular and widely used Cricket app.
It has tons of features that include the usual match summaries,
Once painstakingly slow app is now fast and fluid, responsive, loads in seconds and visually pleasing.
However, it is so feature dense that sometimes navigating around the app can become a little overwhelming, but as you learn to use it, there is no better alternative.
Cricbuzz cricket scores and news
Cricbuzz is another great cricket app which is no less in the feature race from ESPN Cricinfo.
Where it will whet your appetite for Cricket scores and latest news, it is not as visually pleasing, nor has it adopted the modern material design of Android.
Anyways, the app is rich in content and features and users can easily navigate around to find what they are looking for.
The app has a clean and modern look complete with all the features you normally look for in a Cricket app.
One feature that I really liked was how easy it was to add matches to your calendar. Just a tap on the upcoming match will take you directly to your default calendar app where you can save it. No hoops to go through.
Despite all the positives, there is one thing which annoyed me to the brink of uninstalling it; every time the score refreshes, the whole screen blinks and refreshes with it. Even though it takes just a tenth of a second, it was pretty bothersome.
Still, it’s a great app to download and I’ pretty sure that the developers will fix the refreshing problem with an update.
Star Sports Live Cricket Score
This Star Sports official Cricket app is actually the best looking Cricket app on the Play Store, period!
On the other hand, it is also pretty anemic in what it has to offer. There is a severe lack of features present in other apps such as upcoming fixtures, statistics and social media integration.
Nevertheless, what it loses in features, it makes up for it by offering updates of other games such as Football, Tennis, Hockey, Badminton and Formula 1.
Cricket Live Scores and News
This app deserves the spot in this list because it looks good and does what it is supposed to do in an excellent uncluttered way.
You can set your favorite team and it will show you the score updates for that team. It also has a floating widget option, which, when turned on, floats on any screen on your phone and opens up a window showing the match summary.
