These 5 great apps will let you stay updated with World T20 in style

Not all of us are lucky enough to be at home watching the ongoing ICC World T20 in its full glory on our television sets. For the cricket buffs on the go, their Android smartphone can be their best bet on staying updated with all that happens in the field or outside it in the WT20. As everyone knows, when it comes to the Play Store, there are tons of choices for almost every sort of application. This is exactly the case when it comes to finding an app that keeps you updated with cricket scores and videos.

To help you out with making a good choice, we are presenting a nice hand-picked list of the best applications for this purpose in this article. Let's get to the topic and present our favorite 5 Android apps to keep up with all the cricketing action going on in the sixth edition of the World Twenty20.

1. Hotstar

Hotstar isn't a cricket only app, and provides access to daily soaps, movies, and several other things. But the fact that it is owned by Star Network makes it the best choice to stay updated. This app lets you watch live telecast of the ongoing cricket matches for free, with the additional benefit of being able to play/pause and rewind at will. When you are not watching the live telecast, the app still shows a brief scorecard that updates at regular inervals.

2. Cricbuzz

If it wasn't for Hotstar's live telecast of the matches, Cricbuzz would have been our first choice. With one of the fastest score updates, with text commentary for each delivery, and the presence of options such as "Lean back" - which allows you to lean back and view the scoreboard in full screen mode, makes it the best choice if you don't have the time/bandwidth for watching the live telecast of a match. 

3. Cricinfo

ESPN Cricinfo has been a reliable source of everything related to cricket since a decade, if not more. Their Android app does the job well too, and includes highlighs videos, and expert views on the matches gone by as well as the matches to come.

4. Star Sports Live Cricket Score

One of the most beautifully crafted cricket apps available on the Play Store, this application is a must have. Star Sports is the official broadcaster of the ICC World T20, and therefore has some offerings that none of the other apps that we listed above have. Present options include audio commentary, live telecast, notifications for wickets and lots more.

5. ICC WT20 Cricket

This is the official application by ICC, the governing body of International Cricket. The app has an easy to use, intuitive UI that allows you to access features like exclusive cricket match videos and highlights, score notifications, exclusive interviews, tournament stats and much more.

The knowledge that you gain through this app can make you a cricket expert. Use this knowledge to gain some experience of betting, and using that experience to play betting games over at, you can earn yourself real money!
