Here’s what you’ll find on the app
- Live scores – Once a match starts you’ll get all the ball by ball stats covering the scores, overs players etc.
- Key match information – In the build-up you’ll see pre-match interviews and team news, injury updates and weather for the match.
- Live audio commentary – If you’d rather not read text coverage you can listen to live commentary on selected games in English and other languages where available.
The thing we really liked about the ESPNcricinfo app was the ability to set your favourite teams to follow. This tailors the app to your personal choices and pulls up the information you really want to see first.
It also has all the quality features you would expect with the latest cricket news and interviews alongside live push scores.
The only downside to the app is the adverts which can be a little annoying and there is no premium or ad-free option that we would prefer to see.

Here’s our guide to Cricket betting!
Match result/ winner – The standard market of who will win the match or if it will be a draw. These can be combined as in multiple bets or accumulators.
1st wicket method betting – How will the first batsman fall? Select from
- Run Out
- Others (this is usually 100/1 plus and would need to be a very strange event like the player knocking the ball away from the stumps with their hand).
A fifty scored in the match? This is one more for the 20/20 games and is a yes/ no betting event. To win you need 1 player from either team to get a 50. As soon as that happens your bet should settle and your winning be paid out.
A hundred scored in the match – As above for any player to get a century.
Over under betting markets – We’ve covered all the markets in here as there’s a few of them. In simple terms, the bookmaker sets a number of runs and you bet if the team will go over or under that amount.
Over/ under cricket betting markets available
