Cricket fans are amongst the most rabid sports lovers in the world. It seems fans around the world just can’t enough.
Thankfully there’s plenty of online services and radio stations that can keep you up to date.
Watchcric is impressive. I was actually seeing what the website offered within a minute of going to the website.
The quality was ok and gave you the option of switching between any of four channels if the vision dropped out. Good audio too.
It’s an informative site too. There’s a detailed schedule and up to date results plus scorecard and ICC Rankings menu.
You have to subscribe to see live test matches for free on Cricket.com.au but there’s plenty of first class Australian cricket that you can access.
Premium passes can be accessed using the CA Live Pass, which gives holders have access to the following series during the 2017/18 summer:
- Magellan Ashes Test Series
- Commonwealth Bank Women's Ashes Series (ODI & T20)
- Men’s ODI Series vs England
- Men’s T20 Intl. Tri-Series vs England & NZ
- KFC BBL|07
- Rebel WBBL|03 (Broadcast Matches)
Live Cricket is provides the same quality as watchcric.org but asks you to sign up when you go to watch the vision.
Signing isn’t painful but I always dislike entering my credit card details even though they guarantee there will be no charges.
The upshot is yes you do get a free trial and yes, you can cancel before payment is due.
And yes the quality of cricket is there.
We’re talking radio here, ABC Australia. Aunty loves the sound of bat on ball and when it’s summertime they are as much a part of our landscape as barbies in the back yard and beach cricket.
With their team of expert commentators the ABC truly are the home of Australian cricket.
If you’re listening on a mobile device you’ll need to download the ABC app from google play or the Mac app store.
The ABC grandstand option is on the home page.
Cricbuzz in an Indian site which prides itself on 24 hours live first class cricket coverage. Most of the action is over by live blog but there’s also videos, photos and plenty of drop down menus .
You can get coverage for first class internationals, T20, women’s, domestic Australian, New Zealand and English County Cricket,
Download the app from the Mac App Store or Google Play or follow the link above to the live site.
As the name suggests Yahoo! Cricket is on the Yahoo home page. It’s a great resource for cricket lovers, again jam packed with live coverage updates and an extensive archive.
For a bit of fun you can join in with the live commentary area and make your prediction. Ask the question,’Is a wicket about to fall?’ You’ll find out pretty quickly how many think you will. I did and 1013 fans clicked yes within a minute. Now that’s my idea of instant response.
