    While looking for more information about cricket and IPL , I wanted to know which is the best website for cricket score and IPL score and to view scores live on the Internet. I performed a google search and the first website that google gave was Cricinfo.com – The Home of Cricket .

    Cricinfo is one of the best place for cricket updates. Though the website is not that user friendly or easy to navigate, it serves the purpose by giving the latest scores online. Any cricket fan can follow the scores across the cricketing world from a single window and also gives a easy facility to keep a track of the forth coming cricket matches and cricket results. The website gives cricket updates of variety of cricket games like ICC World Cup Qualifiers, Indian Premier League, County Cricket, Current and Future cricket Tours, Match/series archive etc.

    As far as IPL is concerned they have launched a mini portal at http://tinyurl.com/df29zg . Through this mini portal they have tried to bring the sime liveliness as we feel while watching the games. It has interesting features like live chat with Cricinfo editors Sambit Bal and Dileep Premachandran , or the mischief gal feature where it focuses on – Diary of a cheerleader. The section is very well managed by Rebecca Lee. She is a Part of the team of Royal Challengers Bangalore’s Mischief Gals cheerleader squad for the second season of the IPL in South Africa.  Rebecca Lee has performed with and instructed for one of the largest cheer and dance companies in the world, Varsity Spirit Corporation and Universal Cheerleaders Association, for seven years. Her insight and live blogging updates will be one of the good features to watch for on cricinfo. 

    So in short www.cricinfo.com should be a good place to browse around during the IPL. Also if you are looking for live cricket scores from google search , simple go to google and search for [cricket] and you will immediately see a summary of the current cricket matches scores. Below is what I got after a live google search for [cricket]

    Australia vs. South Africa, 5th ODI

    Aus 190/2(30.4) | RR: 6.20
    Ponting* 19(29), Ferguson 40(31)
    Last 2 Overs: 2 . 4 1 1 1 | 1 1 . 1 
    www.cricbuzz.com
    Cricbuzz Cricinfo Willow

     

     

    As you can see these cricket score results are powered by Cricbuzz Cricinfo Willow  A few additional features have also been customized where in if you type [cricket India] you will get  results for Indian matches. You can always change India with the country that you want to follow like Australia, Pakistan, South Africa, Srilanka etc.  The score card display gives the Current score, Batsman at crease with individual scores, Current run rate, Last 2 overs run split, Required run rate and Remaining target.  This is more than sufficient for any cricket lover. I am looking for any such interesting cricket widget for wordpress. Would love to have it on my blog especially during the IPL matches.
