Cricket World cup 2011 and ESPN Cricinfo has push notification which is great feature. NDTV Cricket app is neat. ECB cricket has lots of features but some live match updates are missing. Even though Yahoo Cricket has fewer features it looks neat.Also try Cricinfo on Snaptu app that is available for most of the Symbian, Blackberry and java phones.
