Yahoo Cricket is a one-stop destination for cricket fans to stay updated with live cricket scores, intensive ball-by-ball commentary and real-time cricket news and updates. Now with a reduced app size, Yahoo Cricket has introduced new features that are innovative, interactive and seamless, to enhance the fan experience for the new normal. A run through of what’s new:
- Uninterrupted experience: Keep track of live scores via ‘Sticky’ Scorecard: Following a nail-biting match when you suddenly need to check another app or join a late-night work call on your phone? Now you won’t miss a minute with Yahoo Cricket’s new, unique “Sticky Scoreboard”. Available for Android users, this innovative feature allows you to continue to track live scores via the Yahoo Cricket app while using other apps on the phone. With this Picture in Picture (PIP) feature, you can seamlessly follow live scores wherever you are. (Minimize the app from the live match scorecard or just click on the icon on the top right of the live match page to switch to PIP mode.)
- A cricket widget (Android) allows users to track live scores even when their phones are locked.
Fast-track to Fantasy research
- If you’re a Fantasy Cricket fan who wants an unfair advantage, Yahoo Cricket has you sorted with its comprehensive ‘Fantasy Research’ section. Loaded with stats related to players and teams, it has the ultimate data fans need by match and player, so they can create their best team yet. (Includes detailed analysis, fantasy research and must-have players in your fantasy teams)
Interactive, fan-centric features
Even if you can’t be in the stadium this year, Yahoo Cricket draws you into the game, making it easier, more fun, and bringing fans together to enjoy matches:
- Real-time polls and quizzes: Yahoo Cricket has match-specific polls integrated within the commentary. Fans can also dive into daily cricket quizzes.
- Graphs: Help users see progression of each match from a numbers perspective
- Bringing users into the conversation: Manually curated user comments are incorporated in the ball by ball commentary — no social distancing required to join the discussion!
- Dark Mode for mobile app (iOS and Android apps) and Web. Switch between light, dark and system default themes
