CricketNext claims to offer the fastest scorecard in the business along with features such as ‘From the Press Box,’ ‘From the Archives’ and ‘Off the Field’ which helps visitors stay updated about the happenings in the field as well as keep tabs on their favourite players.
“Leveraging the fact that CricketNext stands for the ‘Next’ best thing to watching a match live, with the launch of the app we aim to reach out to a wider audience making it the ‘Next’ destination for cricket,” said Manish Maheshwari, CEO, Network 18 Digital.
