Cricbuzz brings World Cup live on its new app

Cricbuzz, a division of Times Internet, is launching a new World Cup section across web and mobile to capitalise on the World Cup and the Indian Premier League (IPL) season 8 for the next four months.

More than 50 million people used Cricbuzz during IPL 7 last year. Of these, over 80 per cent of the users used the app on their mobile phones. In January, Cricbuzz users spent over 2.5 billion minutes on its app (just under 5000 years), generating 2.6 billion page views.

The new World Cup release features a number of new sections. They are--

A) Timelines: The section takes a look at the timeline of each tournament since 1975, to relive the epic moments.

B) Records: This section reports the most interesting cricket stats and figures, with a log of the previous World Cup matches.

C) Captains and Kits: This section is a collection of caricatures of team captains for the past 30 years.

D) Your Team: This category is dedicated to each team, with history, stats, and easy access.

E) Venue: It includes the information on the cities where the matches are being held.

Cricbuzz will also feature editorial content, fastest scores and alerts. With live reporting, the portal will make sure that users have the best insights at their fingertips.

Last week, the Cricbuzz app had crossed 10 million downloads, making it the first sports app in India to touch that record. Cricbuzz ranks in the top five sports apps globally. It ranks after ESPNScoreCenter and the official apps of FIFA and the NFL.
