IPL 2019: Track live cricket scores on Amazon Echo with Alexa

As the IPL fever grips the entire nation, Alexa is prepping up with knowledge about the various teams, players, match schedules and trivia. From now, Amazon Echo users will be able to easily track live cricket match scores and follow their favourite teams and cricketers using simple voice commands.

In case you missed a match, Alexa can get you up to date with “Alexa, what’s the match report/update?”. Users can also follow-up with questions like “Alexa, who won man of the match in the last game?”

Other such questions include “Alexa, who scored the highest in the last match?”, “Alexa, who took most wickets in the match?” and “Alexa, how much did Kohli score in the match?”
