Cricket fans could sell old mobile to enjoy new app
14 June 2010 — 12:00 PM
With the domestic Twenty20 cricket season underway, fans may wish to sell their old mobile and put the cash towards a new Apple iPhone.
This is because Friends Provident, sponsor of the limited overs tournament, has commissioned a new app for the device specifically for the competition.
Users can take part in a predictions league where they compete with each other to correctly forecast the scores of a host of matches.
There will also be the chance to test out cricket knowledge in a series of quizzes and catch up with the latest news.
Friends Provident has enlisted the services of ex-England player and pundit Mark Nicholas to help craft the app.
It is thought the former Channel 4 anchor, famous for his partnership with Richie Benaud, will help the company design the features of the app so they are enjoyable to fans of the sport.
Sussex Sharks are the reigning Twenty20 Cup champions, having defeated Somerset in last season's showpiece final.
