As much as we would like to sit at home and watch all the IPL matches, this dream is not about to come true. So here’s how you can stay connected to the cricketing action. All you need is the right application that will ensure you never miss an update.
You can’t watch matches live on your smartphone with these apps, but you’ll still be totally tuned in.
