When the masses generally talk about the “World Cup” they are often referencing a tournament held by The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA). In this context, however, it’s all about the ICC and the 2019 Cricket World Cup, set to start later this month and figuring out how to consume all of the action via iPhone or iPad.

This particular sporting showcase is the 12th edition of the Cricket World Cup and will be hosted by England and Wales this time around.

Some of the world’s most hardcore cricket fans will descend on the United Kingdom to view the action up close and personal, whereas others aren’t quite as fortunate and will need to keep up to date with all of the action via mobile devices. Let’s take a look at the services on offer which can satiate your cricket viewing desires.
