Cricket, the craze and love of so many all over the world, and for those who migrate to countries where cricket is not to popular are starved for any kind of cricket action. But after many years of searching i have compiled a list of cricket resources to feed a little bit of the cricketing appetite.
The best website for cricket in my option is www.cricinfo.com the sites give live ball by ball cricket match cover, of all international matches. Even some first class cricket matches are covered as well as any cricket matches are covered by their staff. Cricinfo, also has a large statistical database. Cricinfo has statistics on nearly all first class cricketers from the beginning of time until now. Cricinfo team up with wisden a few years ago and recently formed partnership with ESPN to improve the the worldwide coverage of cricket. So that is my number one site for cricket, just waiting for them to launch a partnership for free internet streaming cricket.
I have to give mention also of the ICC, international cricket council, www.icc-cricket.com and the www.lgiccrankings.com. These two website will keep you update on all the live series and upcoming series events. Big events, like the world cup, and T20, and U19 world cup information, can easily be found on the ICC website.
Another good site to visit, although the focus will be on cricket in England, would be http://www.skysports.com/cricket/. This site also covers all international matches, and country cricket information can be found on their website. Highlights of international cricket matches involving England can also be found on their website, so this one is always handy to have in the favorites to check for cricket highlights.
From time to time as well, i visit the http://uk.eurosport.yahoo.com/cricket/ to get cricketing information. This is the UK version of yahoo sports, which also provided information on cricket as well as other sports such as “football” aka soccer.
Directv, and dish network, have caught up on the cricket viewing and try to cash in on cricket lovers need for cricket.Now most test and one day international cricket matches, can be viewed on pay per view channels. So those who can afford to feed their cricketing passion, can do so buy purchasing it on directv or dish network.
Now to watch or view cricket on the internet for free, you need to get yourself a set of software to keep handy, windows media player, tvuplayer, sopcast,ppmate, ppstream or pplive. Having these programs all in your possession wont hurt either as it will allow you to find out which stream will be best suited for the current day. Now to find the best streams is probably your biggest test for any given day, because with free stuff they are no guarantees. Add these sites to you bookmarks, my favorites are www.myp2p.eu, ipcricket.com , acricket.com, cougarcricket.com. Of course they are many more website around the place to look for, but these ones are the more consistent that i have found at providing cricket to help feed that need for cricket.
Of course i cant say cricket without mentioning one of the best inventions since slice bread, youtube. On youtube, you will find highlights, create accomplish, series recaps, old time cricket, new cricket, street cricket. You can watch the ball of the century from shane warne, lara 365,and 400, shoaib thundberbolts, wasim akram great swing action, waqar younis great toe crushing yorkers. You can also find crickets highlights of your favorite crickets. I spent hours and hours looking through cricket on youtube to know about ipl 2020 schedule pdf download to get the information which has provided the price of tickets which will be decided on the basis of seats because this time the sponsor will be arranging new system of seats for matches.
Well i hope that with all this new cricket action, you will feel more at home and enjoy cricket where ever you go.
