Yahoo! India has announced the launch of the first-ever full-fledged cricket app for Windows Phone users in India. The app is available for free on the Windows Marketplace and offers a slew of features and user-friendly interaction for the user to follow live matches, and also keep a tab on the recent and upcoming ones. The app is the first to offer a complete match experience in a variety of ways like live scores, detailed ball-by-ball commentary which can be filtered by wickets, 4s and 6s; an interactive score card which allows the user to browse through the batting line up, fall of wickets and a complete chronology of how a match progressed. If you are a Windows Phone user and live and breathe cricket, then grab the app from here.

Catch all the action on the go!

Catch all the action on the go!

With this new app from Yahoo! Cricket, Windows Phone users can now catch all international matches and the IPL series – live, on-the-go. On a non-match day, the app will connect the user to specially created photo-galleries, latest news articles on the game, player and team profiles, as well as results of completed matches, and schedules of upcoming ones. Developed at the R&D center in Bangalore, this is the third cricket app released by Yahoo!. Following on the success of the earlier apps built for iPhone and Android (the recent Android app has seen 11000 down loads within 10 days of launch) , the new Windows Phone app has already garnered praise from users who've installed it.

Some of the highlights of the app include:

  • A quick look at all the live scores of matches currently happening.
  • An interactive scorecard. Browse through the batting line-up to know about partnerships, who got out when, and who is coming up next.
  • Provides users with various ways of enjoying a cricket match – from the basic scores, all the way up to a detailed ball-by-ball commentary
  • View specially created photo galleries showing the latest from the world of cricket.
  • Read all the latest news articles on the game.
  • A simple way to browse through results of completed matches and to know schedules of upcoming matches.
  • Browse through all international teams and players
