The app provides future and historical information on International and domestic cricket across the world to keep you informed whenever you feel the need to be.
The BCCI app is available on iPhone, iPad and Android and has some great features attached to it.
BCCI app review
One of the most satisfying features of the BCCI app is that it is completely advert free. No pop-ups, no ads at the bottom of the screen, nothing. All information is purely cricket related and provided with the aim to inform and grow the name of cricket, not to sell or make profits.
This keeps the interface clean at all times and makes it much more easier to see the information you want to.

Can you bet on the BCCI app?
Unfortunately not is the short answer. There is no mention whatsoever of odds or markets available for each game being played. For this you will need a specific cricket betting app. One such app that we would recommend would be the BetRally India app. In our opinion this app is one of the best betting apps in India.
The BetRally India app holds particular focus to sports in India such as cricket, Kabaddi and Badminton. However it also offers plenty of markets across other popular sports and pastimes around the globe. There’s even live casino action attached to the app as well for those who like to turn their hand to the roulette wheel every now and then.
Cricket Betting on the BetRally app
BetRally covers all the main cricket tournaments. Some of which can be found in the list below.
- ICC World Cup
- ICC Champions trophy
- Test matches
- Asia Cup
- T20 World Cup
- Ashes series
Betrally offer competitive odds across all of their markets but they also make available attractive offers to both new and existing customers to provide extra value and a more loyal relationship. They are also renowned for their lightning fast payouts. BetRally are one of the very few online bookmakers that accept direct bank transfer as a payment method (for both depositing and withdrawing)
To give you an idea of the level of choice available, here are some examples of the markets available to bet on.
- Which team will win the match
- First Wicket method (e.g bowled, caught, run out)
- Half century scored in the match
- Century scored in the match
- Over/under markets (e.g 1st innings score, highest Individual score, total runs in match)
- Which team will win the toss
- Who will be Man of the match
- Which team will make the most run outs
- Many, Many more.
If you’re looking to bet on the cricket, then we would still highly recommend getting the BCCI app to get all of your key information and statistics, but to accompany that with the BetRally app in order to actually place your bets.
