Cricket is the most popular sport, and arguably the most popular form of entertainment in India. It’s no shock then that Indians take the Indian Premier League (IPL) very seriously. From simply viewing and following games, though participating in fantasy leagues, to betting, there are a lot of IPL apps dealing with this league.

However, not all of those are up to scratch with their services. When you narrow them down to those that are available for iOS, even fewer are left standing. Of the few that are left, though, I have reviewed and picked out the 10 best choices for you.

What are the best iOS apps for the Indian Premier League?

Worldwide cricket fans suffering from the fever of IPL surely don’t want to miss a single ball of the tournament. Here are the best IPL and IPL apps.

If you’re looking for an IPL app to download, the official app should be your first stop. The app has a straightforward, clean interface that makes it easy to access desired information. Info available include, standings, schedule, stats etc. The selling point of this application, though, has to be the opportunity to view exclusive IPL highlights. That, and the IPL fantasy league you can enroll and participate in through the app.

BCCI official app for iOS provides live scores, news, match schedules, stats, standings, and other relevant information for IPL. The app also features videos, virtual replay, live commentary, photos, and score updates of all matches.

No need to worry, though. With the star sports app, and access to the latest scores, stats, and in-game analytics, you can have as close to a real-game experience as you could hope for. There are other features, but you would have to check those out for yourself.

It allows users to follow a wider range of competitions, including those of some popular cricketing African countries. It can be difficult finding your way with this much info to cover, so the app also prioritizes convenience and customization. Users can streamline info by selecting favorite teams and competitions, and allowing notifications.

Widely considered to be one of the best cricket analysis apps out there, CricViz is a goldmine for bettors.

The app doesn’t analyze IPL cricket alone, but you can be sure that when the season starts, there would be doses of cricket intelligence to help you.

Another Live Cricket Score app that doesn’t deal exclusively with the IPL alone, Cric world has something for every cricket lover. Users of the app can view game schedules and read news articles. In addition, users of the app who partake in trivia contests would love access to records. Besides following IPL cricket, fans can also check on international series, national teams and individual players. 

There are more apps that provide value to IPL fans, but these represent the best of the best. Though arguments could be made for the inclusion of fantasy and betting apps, the latter are better reviewed as a whole while the former’s variations cannot be judged through any general metric. That said, you could check out this and let me know what you think of my list in the comment section. Ciao!
