The game of cricket has done nothing but grow in popularity in the last few years. Long gone are the days when only 5-day games were played with breaks for tea. Nowadays, it’s a sport that’s becoming more and more present in the world and that’s also insanely popular in many countries. Not to mention the fact that it’s a sport that’s represented in plenty of high-quality mobile apps. Today, we’ve selected the best cricket games on Android so you can take the excitement of this sport with you wherever you go on your smartphone or tablet.

Epic Cricket stands out thanks to how it accurately captures the experience of the sport through different game modes.
