    Default Wicket sound alerter?

    Just started trading cricket for the first time ever this week, and things are not going bad, I might add.

    Is there a sound alerter for wickets anywhere on the web? Similar to flashscores.co.uk or Betfairs own live score for football. (I have googled, yet found nothing. But since I only started reading the rules of cricket yesterday, I might not be using the right search words.)

    What I do at the moment is listening to the live commentary on bet365.com, but I realize there is a buffering delay on any audio/video feed.

    ...........Good luck with that!!!


    Cricket for beginners:

    "You have two sides, one out in the field and one in. Each man that's in the side that's in goes out, and when he's out he comes in and the next man goes in until he's out. When they are all out, the side that's out comes in and the side thats been in goes out and tries to get those coming in, out. Sometimes you get men still in and not out.

    When a man goes out to go in, the men who are out try to get him out, and when he is out he goes in and the next man in goes out and goes in. There are two men called umpires who stay all out all the time and they decide when the men who are in are out. When both sides have been in and all the men have been out, and both sides have been out twice after all the men have been in, including those who are not out, that is the end of the game!"

    Thanks. Still trying to grasp that it is called one innings instead of one inning.

    The Fonejacker was actually the first thing I thought of.

    I normally have the likes of Sporting Index open as these show live scores, and suspend as soon as a wicket goes down. To be fair Betfair does the same.

    if you have an iPhone then you can select a game and set push notifications on within the ECB cricket app. this will give an audible alert when a wicket is taken
