3 of the best apps for cricket lovers wanting to follow all the action this summer

For cricket lovers across the world it’s been an exciting summer.

The ODI World Cup, despite a slow start, lived up to expectations – expectations that culminated in that unforgettable and enthralling final between hosts England and the Kiwis, that the hosts went on to win right at the death after a tied super over.

Aside from one day cricket, one of sport’s biggest rivalries is currently taking place: The Ashes.

Australia are currently in England attempting to retain the little urn they won last time out down under and there’s plenty of other tasty tests taking place right across the globe.

But what’s the best way to keep up with the action? And what apps can you download to help you get the most from this glorious summer of cricket?
