I know that most Americans would not rank cricket as one of their favorite sports. Heck, I think most Americans are not quite sure what cricket is, other than it being loosely related to baseball (make that very loosely) and that it uses funny shaped bats. But outside of the U.S. cricket is a very popular sport, and in India cricket is more popular than any other sport. Nimbus Sports has media operations in over 60 countries, and runs the Neo Sports TV channel with millions of viewers in India. To make following cricket more interactive and personal, Adobe India partnered with Nimbus Sports to create Cricket Center*, an AIR powered desktop app that allows cricket lovers to watch obtain match details, access live scorecards, obtain player stats, and more.
Want to spice up your experience of following live Cricket matches on the web ! ! !
Welcome to Cricket Nirvana’s Cricket Centre Beta, where live data from cricket matches get transformed into a rich, engaging and interactive experience on your desktop, powered by Adobe AIR™. Not only can you get the scores ball by ball, you can also gossip with your friends as you watch the match and even express your emotions on the performance of every player. So don’t forget to let your cricket buddies know that they can catch you online at Cricket Centre.
If you are a keen follower of the game, we know that you will not want to miss out on seeing player profiles and live statistics like Wagon wheels and Manhattan charts, just like you have them on live television.
And just in case the match itself is getting a bit too boring for you, you can always relive the excitement of watching Tadka Marke, Dial C, Encounter and select interviews from our NeoTV archives.
Currently in beta, we seek any comments or suggestions that you may have for making your experience better. Just write to [email protected]
