Yahoo Cricket App is back with a brand new look and feel. With a refreshed design, real-time updates, rich content, the app will be the one-stop destination for cricket lovers to not just follow but enjoy the game.
 
Available on iOS and Android devices, the app offers a slew of new features such as ‘Moments You Missed’, ‘One of the fastest ball-by-ball commentary’, infographics, embedded tweets and a lightning-fast source of cricket scores, news and stats.
 
The Yahoo Cricket app is loaded with new features that include:
 
Quickest score updates and commentary
Our superfast ball-by-ball commentary and score updates will make your LIVE experience the best ever. Users will be able to scroll through commentary of the entire match, including boundaries, on-the-go.
 
In addition, the app’s visually stunning intuitive design offers superb user experience. Users can skip to the action directly by landing on to the homepage which shows the scores for the latest matches. There is match by match commentary, enriched with a feature rich match centre, engaging infographics, real time polls, tweets, and photos that help you relive all the action.
 
Users can also read the latest cricket news and the most interesting opinions from around the world, live on the app.
 
Crank up the excitement with the “Ball by Ball” feature
Users will now be able to view when a bowler starts his run-up and anticipate what will happen next through the ‘Ball by Ball’ feature.
 
Catch up with ‘Moments You Missed’
If you need to get back to work, but don’t want to miss out on the game, this unique feature will capture key moments and recap them for you when you return to the app.
Activate notifications for your favourite teams
Notifications exclusively curated to send alerts for all important match events of your favourite teams. Now if you cannot sit in front of a TV all day for an ODI, or five days for a Test match, simply select what you would like to watch -- boundaries, wickets only, or the complete ball by ball match highlights.
 
Keep track of the upcoming matches
Users can track tournament-wise or team-wise fixtures of upcoming matches.
 
Commenting on the redesign, Gurmit Singh, VP & MD, Yahoo India, said, “The refreshed Yahoo Cricket app is a step towards enhancing the match experience for millions of cricket fans in India who crave real-time, quality content and superior fan experiences every day. Be it our lightning-fast cricket scores or unique features like ‘Moments You Missed’, the experience that users will get through the Yahoo Cricket app will be unique and engaging.”
