The initial schedule of one of the biggest events in cricket — the Indian Premier League a.k.a IPL — kicked off a couple of days ago. Surprisingly, this time, the IPL will be hosted in two parts — the first part being held in the UAE and the second one in India. For cricketing maniacs, IPL is associated with huge sixes, some tense moments and nail-biting finishes, which is what has made the tournament so popular in such a short time.

However, with the sheer number of matches being held in the IPL, it is very much possible that even the most avid cricketing fans will lose track of the schedule and scores. Therefore, to make your life easier, we list down some apps that will help make following IPL easier.


This is the official Board of Cricket Control in India (BCCI) app that has been totally overhauled for the latest season of the IPL. The app now sports a brand new UI that is optimised for tablets and packs in features like hawk-eye analysis, commentary analysis, standings and more. The official IPL app also provides you with the schedule of the matches, results, interesting information about the venues, video clips, highlights of the matches, photos and more.

Google Now

Google recently added the ability to view cricket scores in Google Now including support for all the IPL teams. It will also constantly notify you of scores while the match is going on and just before it is about to start. App

The official Star app is a great way to catch up with all the IPL related news and happenings. Unlike others, this app also offers free live-streaming of cricket matches, in case you don’t want to miss that nail biting finish. Keep in mind though, that the free streaming is delayed by 5 mins. The app also provides real time in-game statistics, HD video streaming, and a video timeline among other things.
