2 December 2009, Sydney – Getting your cricket fix this summer just got a whole lot simpler with Vodafone and 3 mobile launching the first iPhone application to feature live cricket action – Cricket LIVE Summer 2009/2010.

Officially endorsed by Cricket Australia, the app gives fans a quick and easy way to watch all the cricketing action as Australia takes on the West Indies and Pakistan this summer.

All iPhone users can enjoy live scores, the latest news articles, Cricket Australia video packages and more by simply downloading the app for $1.19 via the Apple iPhone App Store.

But if you’re a Vodafone or 3 Mobile customers, you can enjoy the extra bonus of LIVE Cricket TV action streamed daily to your iPhone.

Starting at $2.49 for a day pass, cricket lovers can enjoy all the action this summer including International tests, One Day and Twenty20 matches.

And for those Vodafone and 3 Mobile customers without an iPhone – don’t despair – you can still access the original Mobile Cricket TV via your handset’s web browser for $2 per day or $8 per month, meaning there is no excuse why you can’t catch every ball, every over and every match this summer!

“With the new iPhone application and Cricket TV, Vodafone and 3 Mobile has realised every Australian cricket tragic’s dream. The iPhone application brings a new level of ease and simplicity to viewing cricket on the go, but those without an Apple in their pocket can stay up to date with the new revamped Cricket TV via Planet 3 and for the first time Vodafone Live,” said Kate Pepper, Head of Mobile Internet and Portable Services.

Users can download the Cricket LIVE Summer 2009/2010 app by simply logging onto the Apple App store and searching “Cricket LIVE”.
