Whether or not you're a diehard cricket fan, starting out as a player or just looking for something to keep you occupied during those periods during the off-season, our list of Top 10 Cricket Apps for Android should have something for you.
Yahoo Cricket is admittedly an easy choice for this list, and it's by no means the best on offer, but it's also a solid and dependable app that always gets the job done. The UI could do with a makeover that's for sure, but if you enjoy Yahoo services and like to get all your info in one place, then Yahoo Cricket is a decent download. If scores and news is what you're after, this will get the job done.
The Great Big Cricket Quiz
Perhaps more of a game than an app so to speak, the Great Big Cricket Quiz is good fun for diehard cricket fans and could be a nice way of testing how good your friends' knowledge of the game really is. Great for trips making your way to a big test match or on days when you're watching the match at home, this is good, simple fun.
Sky Sports Live Cricket SC
Many of our English readers will know Sky Sports for their excellent coverage of Football, and they do a decent job on the Cricket front as well. With the Sky Sports app, you can stay up-to-date with all the latest news and of course all the latest scores as they come in. A nice way of checking how your team is doing in a series or in their respective league.
Cricket Scorer+ for Android
While this is another older app that has unfortunately not been updated for some time it still does a great job of what it's designed to do. Cricket Score+ for Android is a great way of keeping score at your local club's games or while your little one plays in a match. You can score along with TV if you'd like, but really this is a great app for those looking to keep score at local games and such.
A great app for our Indian readers, NDTV Cricket takes care of scores for both matches in India as well as elsewhere internationally. It's a fairly basic app that mostly just delivers scores, but it is worth having, especially if you're familiar with NDTV's other offerings.
Free Cricket Terms
So you've just got into the game, or you've just started playing for a local team, either way you might become a little confused by all the terminology. Free Cricket Terms is a simple app that can help you brush up on your terminology so you know what's happening both on your field and off.
Cricbuzz Cricket Scores & News
Cricbuzz is a comprehensive Cricket app that offers scores for all major leagues all over the world as well as live match updates where possible. Where this shines is in its comprehensive news coverage and the ability to see what matches are coming up. One of the more respected Cricket apps on the Play Store, this is a comprehensive app worth taking a look at if you want more than just basic score keeping.
Clever Cricket is an app designed for those looking to connect with others and those that think themselves a bit of a know-it-all when it comes cricket outcomes. Clever Cricket lets you predict scores and results online with others to get people talking about the game. It's a fun idea and one that diehard fans will really like, especially if you have friends round to watch the games.
Cricket Pro is another app designed to deliver scores and news to your Android smartphone or Tablet and it does so using a pretty modern interface, one that should please Android fans and Cricket fans alike. It's got live scores and a calendar of upcoming games to boot. All-in-all, a pretty good score app.
GoCricket is another score app, but it's again built with a modern Android UI and unlike other apps here, this delivers pictures straight from the game as well as graphics from the game to give you an idea of how the balls are falling and that sort of thing. A nice addition to an already comprehensive app, these graphics are almost as good as those you'd see on TV during live coverage.
