With the ongoing ICC Cricket World Cup 2019, Alexa is equally excited to give users the latest updates about the teams, matches and everything else you need to know about this year’s cricket tournament. Amazon Echo users will now be able to easily track live cricket match scores using simple voice commands. Alexa is now armed with knowledge about the various teams, players, match schedules and trivia.

Alexa can help you keep track of live match updates. Just ask "Alexa, what's the cricket score", "Alexa, what's the current run rate of England", or "Alexa, who is batting". Users can also get answers to follow-up questions like “Alexa, who was man of the match”. Other such questions include “Alexa, how many wickets did Raina take”, and “Alexa, who holds the record for most runs in the world cups”.

And then are ways to win an Echo Dot - as explained by Mayanti Langer Binny & Gaurav Kapoor below.
