The Cricket World Cup is under way, bringing together 14 of the best cricket-playing nations in the world in an international competition. Keeping track of the many one-day test matches may be a little tough, so stay up on all the latest news with Cricket World Cup 2011.

From now until April 2011, Cricket World Cup 2011 will be a source for people looking to stay abreast of what’s happening in the ICC Cricket World Cup. The app shows fixtures to track match schedules and a points table to see which teams are leading in the tournament. CWC 2011 also has links to news articles and a page showing select tweets mentioning the World Cup, but that feature is rather limited and not that valuable.

What is worth noting is that CWC provides live coverage of test matches. Scores, news, and commentary are available during matches, and notifications are supported. CWC can be set to appear in the notifications menu after scores or wickets. Someone who can’t watch the action can still know what happens as the West Indies and South Africa face off.

Cricket World Cup 2011 requires Android 2.0 in order to work. An ad-supported is available for free in the Android Market, or users can upgrade to a premium version that is ad-free.
