Introduction

The Cricket API provides real-time scoring, detailed match statistics (when available), and an array of supplementary data.

The API is consistent in structure, format, and behavior with the other General Sport APIs. Primary feeds will return schedules, competitions, team and player data, and real-time scores.

Additional feeds provide a host of complementary stats, including: 

  • Standings
  • Player profiles
  • Team profiles
  • Historical results
  • Match lineups
  • Seasonal statistics
  • Detailed ball-by-ball data
  • Live pitch and field coordinates

🗝️

Authentication is required for all API calls.


Data Source Upgrade

Our upgraded Cricket v2 API is official for ICC, ECB and Caribbean Premier League. See the Content Strategy link for detailed info.

While this enhancement mapped out new data to our existing attributes, there are some attributes that we will not be replacing. Details of this can be found in the Data Mapping document.

The new dataset will also include each of the below features:

  • Custom-designed for cricket with multi-mode capability to ensure the lowest latency in the market.
  • Unique fielding data points exclusive to Sportradar
  • Ball tracking for shot and delivery, type coding and AI-powered automated text commentary.
  • Automated system monitoring platform redundancy to ensure reliable, uninterrupted service.

API Map

To best utilize the Cricket API, you will need several parameters to create your API calls. The map below illustrates how you can obtain the parameters you need.

The primary feeds require only a date or human-readable parameters to call the endpoints. Those feeds provide Sport Event Ids, Competitor Ids, or Season Ids which can be used to generate the match, team, and tournament feeds.
