How do I find out the coverage for a particular match?

This is available in our coverage properties within Match Timeline. Coverage levels are:

  • Post-match - Lowest level of coverage. Data is entered after the completion of the match
  • Core - Includes basic data such as scores, players, current over stats, required run rate
  • Advanced - More granular coverage. Includes more datapoints such as shot and ball types, wagon wheel data
  • Fielding - More enhanced coverage currently only for major ICC events (World Cup Mens, Womens, U19) and the Caribbean Premier League (CPL). Data points include richer data for fielding events, fielding position coordinates and multiple-player events

How will a sport event behave when it is not covered with live scores?

When a sport_event is not covered live, the status and match_status will remain as not_started until results are entered post-match.


How can I find the values for various enum data points within the API?

Many enum values are listed in the FAQ below. For the most up-to-date values, please see the Schema section of the OpenAPI specification here:

What format are date fields presented in?

We use these for attributes that have date and no time (such as birthdate). For more information:

How do I locate the TTL (Time to Live)/cache on an API endpoint?

The cache (in seconds) can be accessed in the returned header information on each RESTful API call, under cache-control.

ex. cache-control: max-age=1, public, s-maxage=1 or
cache-control: public, must-revalidate, max-age=120

What does the batting_params.trace attribute represent?

The trace attribute is a Boolean value signifying whether or not the ball was hit in the air.
