How to download cricket stickers on WhatsApp?

To get started, open any WhatsApp chat, tap on the emoticon icon, and then tap on the sticker icon below.

Then, next to the carousel of all your added stickers, you will see a '+' icon. Hit that.

This will open a list of the stickers WhatsApp has provided and you should see a "Cricket Matchup" sticker pack present there. You can add these stickers to your favourites.

If you don't see the sticker pack you can scroll down to the extreme bottom, where you will see the Get More Stickers shortcut to the Play Store.

Once you are in the Store, you can search for cricket stickers, which will suggest you a whole list of sticker apps. Notably, though, not all the suggestions that show up are genuine. Many of them are just apps with a bazillion ads in them, and they don't even offer genuine stickers.

Some of the apps where we found genuine WhatsApp stickers were Cricket Stickers for WhatsApp, and Indian Cricketer Stickers.

Once you have chosen the app you want, install it and hit open. Launching the app will show the categories of stickers that the app offers, you can add the ones you want by tapping the '+' sign next to each category.

Now, when you go back to your WhatsApp, you will see the added stickers in the carousel on top when you tap on the stickers icon.
