True cricket fans are hooked to cricket updates on the go

In India, cricket is not just a sport. It is a religion, perhaps the country’s most popular one. Thousands head to the stadiums every day, watch the matches on TV or follow cricket updates online.  If you are a big fan of the sport and can’t seem to get enough of the ongoing cricket league, we’ve got you covered. Here are some of the easiest ways to keep yourself updated on the latest score and not miss out on any live action, all on the go.

Ball-by-ball updates with Opera Mini

Like a true cricket fan, if details are something you vie for, make your way to sports websites like, or, which will give you real time cricket updates every time you refresh the page. You’ll find everything you are looking for: the score, the run rate, overs, previous batsmen scores, bowlers’ sheet, etc. Yes, we mean everything (the ‘c’ to ‘t’ of cricket).

But, here’s something you should know. Constantly refreshing these pages could take away a decent chunk of your data plan, so make sure you are using Opera Mini to save up to 90% on data. Opera Mini was recently updated with video boost, which reduces the size of video data, lessening video-loading time and combats buffering delays.

Be a part of the action with Opera Max

Care for a lot more than just numbers and want to watch the match in all its live glory? Log on to the many sites that let you stream the match live and get all the cricket updates the moment they happen. But this route will definitely burn through your data plan, so make sure you install Opera Max and then stream the videos through Hotstar or YouTube. This will ensure you save as much data as possible while giving you the best video quality available.

So no matter what option you choose to get real-time match scores, make sure you use Opera Mini or Opera Max while doing so, to maximise your data savings.

Also, do let us know in the comments section which cricket team you are supporting this season. We would love to hear from you.
