Have you played cricket in the dark before? We're not talking about flood lights on full, but in actual darkness? Nokia India has attempted to do so, using only some coloured lighting for guidance as two teams battle it out on the streets. Thanks to the imaging capabilities of the Lumia 925, some shots were captured.

We've received multiple tips that ESPNcricinfo has been updated with a revamped interface. Instead of continuing to sport a rather dull and boring interface, the team behind the app has implemented a brand new design, better reflecting the modern UI that's utilised on Windows Phone and across the Microsoft ecosystem. What's more is the new look also brings the app up to speed with counterparts on iOS and Android.

ESPNcricinfo is a Windows Phone sports app to keep you up to date on all the cricket action going on around the world. Cricket the game, not cricket as in Jiminy Cricket.

ESPNcricinfo covers international matches, ICC tournaments and major domestic leagues including English county championships, Indian Premier League and Champions League. The app is laid out nicely, as with any ESPN app, with pages covering match scores, news, magazine articles, and a tile menu that pulls up stats, videos, settings, rankings and more.

Other features for ESPNcricinfo include:

  • Live game coverage that includes commentary, scores, match graphics, player profiles, and sideline reports
  • "Lean Back" mode for full-screen viewing that allows you to lean back and enjoy the match
  • Live tile support to pin games to your Start Screen
  • Push notifications for instant alerts for wickets, batsman milestones, and score updates..

While the game of cricket isn't very prominent in my neck of the woods, I can see ESPNcricinfo being a handy app to have for those who follow the game. ESPNcricinfo is a free app for your Windows Phone and you can snatch it up here at the Windows Phone Marketplace.

Thanks, bilzkh, for the tip!
