Cricket World Cup 2015 can be streamed live to your iOS or Android phone and tablet
As a sport in the U.S., the popularity of cricket falls somewhere south of curling. But there are some who now live in the U.S. who spent their formative years in a region where cricket is played, and would love to watch the Cricket World Cup on a mobile device. First, some background. For those unaware, the Cricket World Cup is played every four years and includes the 14 top teams in the world. This year, those battling for the title include England, Australia, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, New Zealand, Afghanistan, Scotland, South Africa, India, Pakistan, West Indies, Zimbabwe, Ireland and the United Arab Emirates.

All 49 games matches can be viewed live in the U.S. from the ESPN Cricket app (natch!) which is available for iOS and Android devices. In addition, if you miss a match that you've been dying to see, you can watch it on-demand at your convenience.

We are sure that there are some baseball fans out there who might be interested in checking this sport out. However, we must warn you that the price of the app is $99.99 which pretty much limits its use to those who are really passionate about the sport.

Perhaps ESPN should have followed the lead of India's Star Sports, which is charging Android and iOS users in the country just $2.50 to have all 49 games streamed to their mobile devices live. In India, cricket is extremely popular.

That was a good game. I wonder if they allow you to purchase matches a la carte to reduce the costs.

Cricket is not a stupid sport, the cricket world cup after the Summer Olympics and the Soccer world cup is the third largest single sporting event. Like any sport once you really understand the game it can be very exciting. Look up cricketers like Brian Lara, sachin tendulkar etc masters batsmen, Shane Warne etc great spin bowlers, actually of all he sports I've seen ill say the most exciting catches happens in cricket it surpasses baseball. Balls comes at you 90 mph, balls hitting the ground then instantly angles 45 degrees. Its a great sport. By the way 20 over games lasts less than a day. 50 overs lasts a day and test matches 5 days.

one day to play?...this is the short version of the game, a test is 5 days so i guess you can go on being sick. For the record, the India /Pakistan game yesterday in Aust, had the biggest TV audience ever for a sporting event, some 1.4billion. So back to the flat white late'..

"which well is like a version of cricket " - you asserted that you know what the sport is , which I see from your lame comments that you now nothing of . Just sleep as there would not be much contribution to the world from people like you , who just blurt out with bias and without any facts.

You can watch it on ESPN go but it charges $99 for the world cup. Why would anyone want to pay that amount of money when there are other better ways available. I did some research and found out that people in the USA are having trouble and are looking for ways to watch cricket world cup live in the USA. After digging in to the internet I found out about another way through which you can legally Stream cricket and you won't have to pay $100. Just a measley $4 will do. (Depending on the service you choose). You can check out the guide here.​15-live-online/ or if you are looking for a free option then : but the free means loads of ads and lags. You don't want that when you are streaming world cup matches.
