India has been called a cricket-crazy nation, something which many of us proudly adhere to. The World Cup is less than a week from now and it looks like the Men in Blue are hungry again. It’s time for all Android and iPhone users to get their hands on some free cricket apps and be up and ready for the World Cup.
Although we thought of cross-platform apps, the fact is that Cricket doesn’t have that kind of global reception, something which football does. So we’ll list these apps separately for iPhone and Android. But hey, the apps are free for both!
Let’s start with Cricket apps for the iPhone:
Quite often we are left stranded in the middle of nowhere, searching for a World Cup schedule. Then starts the frantic search through newspapers, TV channels and last but not the least, Google. Instead, you can try this app and get the whole World Cup 2011 schedule on your iPhone. Added goodies include information on team squads from every participating country and there’s also a quick summary about every player.
War of the crickets?
There’re also updates to what all is happening in the World Cup through tweets and videos. Plus, if there’s something you want to share with your friends, you can do so with the Twitter option in the app. Download this free app from here.
Cricket Facts 2011
Is Shoaib Akhtar the world’s fastest bowler or is it Shaun Tait? Not a very tough one now, but there are so many of them that we always forget. Almost every cricket brain within us wants to know who scored the fastest century in a ODI or who took the most catches in 50 overs.
Flip through your cricket magazine
Plus these facts are not restricted to cricket matches of yore. You’ll also find the latest stuff and facts will be updated time to time. Check this app over here.
Don’t spend anxious moments traveling and wondering whether Sachin Tendulkar scored a century or not. Rather download Cricinfo’s official ESPNcricinfo app for the iPhone. This app includes live match coverage with commentary, scorecard, photos, reports and more.
So you can keep a close watch
You can read-up on opinionated pieces by various cricket writers, of course that’s when you’re detoxifying from the world cup frenzy. You can also personalize the interface with your favorite team. Plus there are push notifications and the app has a lean back mode where it runs in the background, giving you ball-by-ball notifications.
