With so much cricket going on at the moment, SixFour has seen quite a bit a work. Some layout tweaks have opened up space at the bottom for anther line of text, which I’m intending to use to show some match details as they come up (boundary, wicket, etc).
I had no choice. Had to make a skanky name shortener for players in minor teams that don’t have a short name in the Cricinfo database.
Long names may prove to be a problem. I’ll have to find an algorithm for trimming that makes sense. I guess its based on sound groups?
Pebble-owning cricket lovers, its your lucky day. Here’s my live scoreboard app. robn/sixfour
Innings change worked perfectly :)

I think that’s all I need. Just enough room for a tiny clock in the bottom corner - this is still a clock face after all, I might still need the time!
The problem with pulling cricket commentary into IRC is that I want to kickban players when they screw up (ie all day today).
Scenario: You like the cricket. There’s live commentary available on the web, but its not in some kind of nice incremental stream, so using it is a bit fiddly.
