I recently came to know about a Free Android application, and trust me saying that it is a ‘must have’ for every cricket fanatic, wont at all be an exaggeration. It’s not that this is the first Android application for Cricket updates I have seen and tried, but I liked it most amongst the ones I have used. Cricket Pro is the free Android application, which delivers you all-round updates of any ongoing as well as upcoming Cricket Tournament on international level.
Currently the application is in its IPL Edition, as IPL 4 is going on and the craze for the tournament keeps the Cricket Fans across the world. Live Scores, Results of recent matches, Fixtures are available and you can get an update of all of them via the application.
Here are the features of the Application –
- A very interesting feature of this application is the news, you can get the cricket news from 6 sources in one single place, to mention the news sources, they are Cricinfo, BBC Cricket, England Cricket board, Cricket Australia, Rediff Cricket and Sky Sports Cricket. There is a drop down menu, using which you can select your source, and later the news from that particular source is loaded instantly.
- You can get to see the teams participating in the ongoing tournament, along with the full squad details. Like is said the application is currently covering the IPL 4, you get to see the details of every player as well, like name, his role in the team, his country, his age, his country and the cost paid by the team owners to bring the particular player to the team.
- You can also access the detailed Points Table to know the current status of the teams in the tournament.
- There is a “Lean Back Mode” for Live Matches, which definitely is a unique feature of this application. This displays the scores of live match in a digital clock like style, imagine, your phone keeps updating you about the score while you keep working on your desk.
- You get to see the timings of earliest upcoming matches; the timings are given in your local time format.
- Records made so far are also displayed in a very organized manner, like as of now the application is showing the highest total runs scored by the team, highest run scorer batsman in the tournament so far, highest number of sixes hit by the batsman so far, etc. in the tournament.
- There is an option for upcoming fixtures as well, where you can get to know about the upcoming cricket tournaments as well.
