ECB Cricket Live allows fans to follow the game on their iPad like never before - with real-time data visualisation on top of the traditional scores service, and all the best news and video coverage from ecb.co.uk.
For all England internationals plus Test matches and ODIs/T20s around the world, the comprehensive data coverage gives users a 3D pitch display illustrating ball-by-ball info for each delivery, including batsman shot type, bowler delivery type, active fielder positions, line and length detail on the 3D pitch, plus heatmaps and wagon wheels.
And across every match of the county cricket season there is a 3D pitch display available, on top of the standard match info expected like full scorecards.
A Manhattan-style timeline for the games allows users to go back through the play to look at individual deliveries once again, and access further detail through the information panels in the bottom split of the screen.
These info panels feature a live scoreboard; detailed scorecards with links to launch heatmaps and wagon wheels; and relevant match news and Twitter feed from @ECB_Cricket.

Like the real team
About as successful as the real England team. Whatever match I want to look at just takes me to a picture of a pitch and then it crashes and I have to reload the app.
Not entirely sure why I bother trying anymore - a similar situation to actually watching the team
Far too complicated
Somehow I'm looking at a cricket pitch and can't escape without closing the app. Needs to be much simpler and intuitive like the iPhone app, where I can easily configure which teams and competitions I'm interested in.
Only a picture of a pitch! Can't even reload the App! Where do we go from here?
