In the past few years, Microsoft Bing has been providing custom experience for major sporting events. For the upcoming ICC Cricket World Cup, which runs from February 13 to March 28 in Australia and New Zealand, Bing will offer all the key information cricket fans need to follow the action.
You can find match schedules, standings, head-to-head comparisons between teams and much more with just a few quick searches on your phone, tablet or PC. There is also Bing’s predictions for every match, polls and quizzes, plus trivia for the novice and expert alike. As soon as each match begins, Bing gives up-to-the-minute scores and the latest information.
Search for any cricket team or player and you’ll see a “snapshot” of all the relevant stats. Searching for your home team? The entire squad is displayed at the top of the page. Search for “cricket WC winning captains” to find a list of captains whose teams have lifted the World Cup in the past.
After correctly predicting 15 out of the 16 FIFA World Cup knockout stage games, Bing continues to leverage the power of the web by predicting outcomes of the 2015 ICC World Cup. When you search for your team or a match on your devices, or ask Cortana for a prediction, Bing calculates the chances of a victory.
