Yahoo Cricket app is back in a brand new look and feels as we have seen above and one great thing is that it offers real-time statices. You don’t need to refresh the app every time to get the updates. We tested this app on OnePlus 5 and used it about a week. After installing it, the app behaves strangely and restart couple of times automatically but using the app about a minute, it was perfectly fine. The new Yahoo! cricket app will surely engage the user in much better way than before. The app has covered almost all things which a cricket lover wants on the go.
