The World Cup 2015, which involves the sport Cricket takes place after every four years, with a total of 14 teams participating. The popularity of the sport has started to proliferate to other regions and currently, the following teams are taking part in the tournament:
- Sri Lanka,
- New Zealand
- South Africa
- West Indies
- United Arab Emirates
The omnipresence of smartphones and tablets belonging to iOS and Android platforms have enabled users to simplify their tasks, with browsing the internet one of the several. Another one happens to involve live streaming several tournaments and fortunately for Cricket buffs, mobile device owners will comfortably be able to stream each World Cup match from the comfort of their homes.
With a total of 49 games to be played throughout the course of the tournament, smartphone and tablet users can start their live streaming sessions by downloading the ESPN Cricket app (link for iOS devices is here). Unfortunately, one of the requirements to use the application will be that users will have to reside in the U.S. In addition, people intending on using the mobile application will also have to pay a total of $99.99 in order to use all the active features.
Smartphone and tablets also have another alternative, should they find the price of the app too steep for their wallets. Star Sports, which is based in India, is charging iOS and Android device owners a modicum amount of $2.50 to have all 49 games stream to their devices. Compared to ESPN mobile app, the Star Sports substitute feels like a far more resourceful option.
