Some of the apps also let you choose your favorite team. The apps also cover regional and private league matches besides the international matches. So, let’s check out what each of these apps offer.
Cricbuzz is the first Android app in the list to check live cricket scores. The app shows top news stories and summary of up to 6 matches on the home screen. These 6 matches consist of ongoing matches (if any), completed matches, and upcoming matches.

The other sections of the app show list of current matches, the list of series’, schedule, recent results, this day that year, archives, player stats, series stats, records, rankings, and points table. Besides this, the app also adds a special section whenever there’s a special series or tournament going on (like Ashes, World Cup, IPL, T20 World Cup, etc.).

5. Yahoo Cricket:
Yahoo Cricket is the last app in the list and it doesn’t provide advanced options like the apps mentioned above. Even the user interface of the app is not intuitive, but it is a good enough app for those who are interested in only checking the scores and few updates. On the home screen, there are 4 tabs: Matches, Teams, News, and Photos. As for the matches, you can choose from Recent Matches, Upcoming Matches, and Ongoing Series.
