Bing's Cricket World Cup coverage includes predictions, polls and more

The 2015 Cricket World Cup in Australia and New Zealand is almost upon us and Bing will be giving you some great coverage of the tournament. Searching for "ICC World Cup 2015" on the Bing homepage will bring up the content shown up top where you'll get match predictions, standings, stats, polls and trivia on a day by day basis as the competition progresses.

Microsoft's predictions for match winners are usually pretty reliable, not least with Cortana correctly declaring the Patriots would win the Super Bowl. But it's not an exact science, and at least one person here feels pretty strongly that England won't lose to Australia!

If you're following the World Cup closely, definitely bookmark the page at the source link below.

  • On phone, search and write ICC world cup 2015 for prediction
  • Now We know in advance the winner of the coming matches ! We can rely on Bing for the correct predictions.
  • Just saw that but..Tables can turn anytime as we have seen in the previous editions..!!
    #WeWon'tGiveItBack
  • Table doesn`t matter, We can goto quarter finals easily, Then it matters. "WeWon`tGiveItBack"
  • It's a saying 'Tables have turned..'
  • I think Bing predictions are different cause they actually analyse every player venue previous clash outcomes,etc but the cricket predictions are entirely based on only the team's previous track record and not of the players whom many have changed from last world cup. So these predictions mostly can't be true
  • And now the power of Cortana is really tested
  • Be the first to comment, I am cricket Fan!
  • Late
  • Yes, But when I open this page it didn`t shows any comment!
  • You are 21 seconds late
  • K.
  • Fatal fail. Now you can lock up yourself in a room and regret for the rest of your life. And also, you won't get cookies.
  • U failed
  • That fixures and standings in Bing is Awesome! "All the Best" to Team India! Bing predicts as India will beat Pak in their first matach, lets hope for it...!
  • Sure.. :)
  • Damn right!!! ...*I mean just predicting!
  • I sure hope so! But I don't think they can stand a chance against Aus/SA this time... :/
  • I tipped.
  • He was too busy I think..
  • Life is hard.
  • Yuvraj ke bina world cup kaise jitoge :(
  • Jadeja aurr Axar ke sahare
  • only if we had official app from ICC
  • Yeah, even Cricket Australia left us Windows fans out in the cold again this year. At least NRL and AFL have official apps here in Australia that allow subscription services to watch live matches. I don't understand when cricket is so big in areas such as the sub continental amd Australia that ICC and Cricket Australia completely dismiss Windows as a platform to promote and sell their product. Having a Nokia 1320 I love being able to keep up to date and watch live streams with a subscription on the NRL app.
  • ESPNCricinfo desperately needs an update.
  • Android n iOS apps just received gorgeous updates
  • All cric apps on WP need update.
    Yahoo cricket,Cricbuzz,Espncricinfo and more
  • Love the way it looks currently, but live tile and notifications are nothing but unreliable.
  • Try this app. http://www.windowsphone.com/en-in/store/app/cricket-world-cup-2015-unoff...  
  • De ghuma ke!
  • LOL bhai AUS-NZ Mein h India m nahi

  • Hey Richard couldn't you just ask espncricinfo team whether they are planning to update their app on par with iOS and android or not?

  • Does Cortana answer these questions?
  • Cortana not officially available to cricketing countries till now!
  • It's still for US only
  • Yes. Cortana can do predictions on phone
  • She'll predict. But don't expect her to come up with her voice.
  • Best answer. Thanks :) [currently using L630 cyan]
  • Richard isn't going with the result till the match is over..?
  • Still waiting on a proper Formula 1 app. I guess its easier to make apps for a wooden bat and leather ball.
  • Ya need one for that too..Races start next week..!!
  • Nah, not easier then than making apps for just a sheet of aluminium on 4 wheels. But nobody cares.
  • Carbon fibre buddy. Living under a rock??
  • Unfortunately bing sports app doesnt show in depth scores for cricket nor stats like other sports ,discrimination
  • I think South Afrika will win the world cup.
  • Well, you are Cortana Part 2.. :P
  • Marked my words. :D
  • Maybe they should also update the Sports app to support detailed cricket score views and real time score updates.
  • Here is an answer to all those ppl who whine about "When in India?" for Cortana prediction capabilities
  • Cortana still not available in India(Despite WP is 2nd largest marketshare in India), How they will expect cortana prediction?
  • Well, with Denim its available. I guess you haven't got Denim yet.
  • I don`t have Denim yet, waiting for it to come..!
