From a very early age I have been fascinated with the game of cricket, I was introduced to the game by my dad he used to play for a couple of local teams. One of these teams was our local amateur side and the other was an indoor cricket team he played with his workmates, by attending both these games to watch my dad it greatly developed my understanding of the game. As soon as I was able to play for I local team myself I jumped at the opportunity, and as I’ve got older I have developed further my understanding of the rules of the game as well as the gamesmanship part of cricket which is such an important factor.

I am now in a position where I am still a great fan of cricket and very fortunate that I get the opportunity to go and watch many live cricket games that Edgbaston cricket ground which is only half an hours drive from where I live. But when I am not able to go and physically watch live cricket thanks to the development of new technology both in mobile phones and on the Internet I’m now able to keep in touch with cricket news no matter where I am. It is worth saying that in all the years I have been on the Internet there is been one website that has remained as my main source for cricket news and information, this is the cricinfo website which is now owned by ESPN.

Cricinfo began its life as a fan owned website and began its life back in the 1990s when the Internet was just beginning to recognise its potential in the wider world, initially cricinfo gained all of its information via the contribution of other cricket fans who would submit scores and statistics for inclusion on the websites database. This is a far cry from what has been achieved in the websites current incarnation as being the number one source for cricket news, scores and even live cricket highlights on the Internet.
