Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Cricket Score Indicator is an AppIndicator which displays live cricket scores from ESPNcricinfo on the panel.

The indicator displays both international and domestic live cricket scores in the AppIndicator menu and allows you to set any match as the label (so the live score shows up directly on the panel).

Scorecards are available as submenus but they aren't displayed initially to reduce network usage. To enable scorecards, simply click on the "scorecard" submenu for any cricket match from the indicator and it should load the scorecard:

  • shows current score as indicator label;
