BBC Sport app push alerts: Follow the Cricket World Cup

Want to know how England are getting on? Keen to find out how the wickets are falling?

With the BBC Sport app you can set push alerts from their matches, along with updates from football teams right across the English and Scottish leagues and the coming Formula 1 season. On opening the alert you will go straight to the right section to get the latest results and news.

The app is already freely available from Google Play  for Android devices, the App Store  for iPhones, and the UK Amazon Kindle Fire Appstore  .

And a scaled-back version is now available for Windows Phone users. 

To add the alerts, you might need to install the latest update of the app. Once installed, follow these steps.

  1. Visit the MyAlerts section of the app from within the menu
  2. Select the sport - cricket, football or Formula 1
  3. If you want cricket alerts, select the nation(s) you want updates from. For football, you can select any English and Scottish league sides, along with international sides. To set alerts for the new Formula 1 season, simply set the sessions you would like to receive updates for.
  4. Wait for the alerts to arrive - hopefully they're good news!

You can of course easily turn alerts off - if, for example, you do not want to know the results of a match you're planning to watch highlights of on Match of the Day.

The app also now fully supports Chromecast, so you can cast any live action of highlights straight to the biggest screen in the house. Been watching while out and about? Simply cast the action to the TV as you get in.
