Armed with all the knowledge on the upcoming cricket season, Alexa is ready with the latest updates on teams, players, match schedules and trivia. By using simple voice commands, customers will be able to track live cricket match scores, game schedules, follow their favorite teams and cricketers and more with Alexa.
This year, Alexa will get post-match updates from renowned cricket commentator Harsha Bhogle for all 62 matches, powered by Audible Suno. These reports are a concise 5-minute audio clip providing match highlights and detailed analysis. Reports of previous day matches would also be available on Alexa every morning at 7am IST. Just ask, "Alexa, what happened in the match yesterday?” or “Give me Harsha’s match update” to get instant updates.
