The Indian Premier League is back and the IPL season 2017 has already begun. Cricket is very popular in India and we cannot miss a single match. When a cricket match is being played, everything in India stops and people start focusing just on the match. The same happens with IPL matches. IPL matches are played at night. At this time, most of the people are at the office or leaving office or at traffic. So, most of the people try to know the scores by calling friends or searching online.
As we know, the smartphone has made possible most of the things for us. And you can use this to watch IPL matches live from anywhere. There are few apps that live stream IPL matches.

When you have the official app to try, you should try it before any other app. I also recommend you to use the link below to download in place of searching it on Play store. It is because there are various apps with the similar name to confuse you.
This app does not offer live streaming of matches but you can use it to get live scores, News, schedule, point tables, videos or recent wickets and highlights.
ESPNCricinfo is one of my all-time favorite app. Here, you won’t be able to watch ay match online but you will see decent text commentary, live score, analysis, and records. It also shows Push for every boundary or wicket. So, you will not miss any single important update.
You may have already seen the advertisement of CricBuzz on television. It is one of the most popular apps among cricket fans. This app shows ball-to-ball updates with commentary to give you live updates. You can also check the previous match history, cricketer’s record and more to track the performance of a team or player.
Sportskeeda is also a company that focuses on sports content. In India, Cricket is the most popular sport. So, Sportskeeda is also offering the live scores, news, and IPL content to give you all live updates. The app is available in English and Hindi both. If you want a simple app just to track IPL updates, you should also try this.
These are few apps that will give you ball by ball updates for all the IPL matches on your smartphone. Only Hotstar can legally show you IPL live streaming. So, use only these apps to enjoy IPL matches. If any other app or website claims to offer such content, you should avoid it to keep your phone safe.
