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.

When Can A Jet Ski Become Dangerous?

Whenever you are at the beach and you see people jet skiing, you often think to yourself “It must be fun to ride a jet ski.” You catch the wind, you enjoy the speed, and you get to see the ocean in a whole different way. But, skiing is not that easy. As enticing as it may seem, it is very dangerous especially if you are inexperienced.

Jet propulsion powers jet skis and one can only have control over it if there is power. There is no braking system in the machine. It is like a water motorcycle with applications of boating. However, it is still handled differently. You have to have the fitness to be able to control such machine. If you have little experience in such, do not try dangerous maneuvers.

Jet skis can be toppled easily when the sea is at its rough state. Plus, it offers little protection in case of collision. An accident may instantly cause death. When jet skiing, you must consider the number of people skiing and how experienced they are in handling the machine. It is important to keep in mind that a simple collision may lead to a very serious injury.

Accidents at sea due to jet skis often happen on places where it is not a strict policy to have a license before you are allowed to ski. In some popular tourist destinations, there is no strict reinforcement of having a license. Operators rent out skis to anyone who desires to ski and all they give are basic instructions on how to use the machine. Operators who conduct detailed trainings or lessons for skiing, the way Tony Horton gives trainings or lessons about fitness, before they let skiers go out to sea are very few.

To avoid unnecessary deaths and accidents, we must be careful in handling a jet ski.
