Here’s a glimpse of how Alexa can be your companion this cricket season:
Listen live commentary
If you are a big fan of the ‘Men in Blue’, cheer for your team while listening to the official live commentary during India’s matches and the knock-out matches. This skill comes to Alexa for the first time and is available for free across different devices including Echo smart speakers, Fire TV, Alexa mobile app, and even the Amazon shopping app (Android). To tune in, just say “Alexa, start live cricket commentary”.
Get updates on team India
Keep a track of Team India. Just ask “Alexa, remind me when India’s match starts” or “Alexa, when is India’s next match” and never miss a game. Even if you forget to tune in, you can always ask “Alexa, who won today’s match?”.
Keep a track of schedules, when is the next match
Keeping track of your favorite team’s fixtures just got easier. Just ask “Alexa, which teams are playing tomorrow?”, “Alexa, what is today’s match?”, or “Alexa, अगला match कब है ?”, this way you know when to schedule your watch party. Alexa can also tell you about much-awaited matches like “India vs Pakistan”. Just ask “Alexa, when is India vs Pakistan match?” and gear up for some intensity.
Ask for match stats and trivia
Unsure about the starting 11 from team India or the opposing teams? Simply ask “Alexa, who are the players for today’s match?”, “Alexa, आज के match कौन खेल रहा है ?” or “Alexa, who is the captain of New Zealand?”. To know more about which team won the toss, just ask “Alexa, आज के match में toss कौन जीता ” or “Alexa, which team won the toss?”
Once the match is complete, Alexa can also give you information about the man of the match, leading run-scorer and wicket-taker. Just say “Alexa, who won the man of the match?” or “Alexa, how many wickets have Pakistan team taken” or “Alexa, how many runs have Sri Lanka team scored”. You can even check the table standings by asking “Alexa, which team is at the top of the points table”. As and when the match proceeds toward the final stages, you can ask “Alexa, which teams are playing the semi finals 1?” or “Alexa, which teams are playing the final?”
Get data-driven match insights
For the die-hard cricket fans who want to stay a step ahead, Singapore-based data analytics firm TV Conal has launched a skill on Alexa that uses information from historical matches to analyse the current ongoing matches. Cricket fans can use this ability via Alexa to enhance their live sports experience and ask for the likely winner, innings scores, and much more. Just say, “Alexa, ask Cricket Predictor, how much will Australia score”, “Alexa, ask Cricket Predictor who will take the next wicket” or “Alexa, ask Cricket Predictor who will be the top scorer.”
