Summer has officially started, bringing with it the biggest cricketing league in the world. Smart phone users have an array of entertainment choices to explore. Let's take a look at what's on offer:

Match madness: Riding the Indian Premier League (IPL) wave, Amazon is offering a solution to let you indulge in the T20 madness. It has tied up with Cyrus Broacha who will provide you a weekly capsule of IPL updates in the form of a podcast. Amazon Echo users have to 'ask Alexa' for updates. Alexa is also equipped to give you player statistics, team standings, trivia and information on each IPL team. Amazon has provided simple voice commands to help you get IPL related queries answered.


If you happen to be a fan of Irfan Pathan and Virendra Sehwag, UC browser offers short videos where the duo provide analysis and news from their favourite teams. The browser also gives you GIFs, memes and goodies all through the IPL.

Stomach the tension: IPL matches tend to be edge-of-the-seat affairs that require steely nerves. Realizing the basic human instinct to eat more when tensed, Hotstar, one of the largest streaming video providers in India, which is live streaming all the matches in 8 languages has tied up with food delivery app Swiggy. You can watch live sports and order food at the click of a button, from your home screen. Hotstar allows you to choose any food item of the Swiggy Pop menu of single-serve meals from your neighbourhood restaurants without having to pause live broadcast of IPL matches. 


Immersive gaming: Eying 200 million cricket enthusiasts in the country, many fantasy gaming platforms have cropped up. If you are a serious gamer and believe in having a gameplay experience by yourself, Ballebaazi may be for you. It provides an immersive experience by optimizing it for least number of clicks.

Potent message: Snapchat has taken the IPL rather seriously and offers a range of options to their users. The company has tied up with Mumbai Indians, Rajasthan Royals, Chennai Super Kings and Kolkata Knight Riders, providing behind-the-scenes updates. Snapchat also allows you to show your support using its augmented reality lenses and partnerships with Sportskeeda and CricTracker for Publisher Stories and updates. 


IT's official! And for getting all the games details, scores and stats there is no better tool that the official IPL 2019 app for Android and iOS, complete with its own fantasy league and selfie feature.

Fantasy gaming or food deliveries or match data, your IPL experience follows you where ever you go this year -- on your phone. Get smart and play on!
