To enable scorecard for a particular match, use the "Scorecard" check button inside the submenu of that match.

Features

  • Shows current score as indicator label
  • Updated as soon as espncricinfo is updated
  • Submenu shows the scorecard of corresponding match
  • Categories for International and Domestic matches
  • Option to set a particular match score as indicator label
  • Adds new match as it is available and deletes the unavailable ones
