Out of 10 test cricket playing nation, only one doesn't have its official website. Its the richest cricket body in the world.. and you guessed right - its BCCI. The board for cricket control in India!
There's no BCCI.com or indian cricket.com on the web, but once a certain site called www.bcci.tv was released during ICC champions trophy in october 2006. here, you've no updates for last 11 months and no one seems to care.
Not sure where all the money goes, but Indian board wants more. BCCI is already worth around Rs 10 billion but again, they're looking for big sponsors for the website to be launched. With Indian team not doing well in world cup 2007, corporate interest in Indian cricket went down considerably. Now with India winning twenty20 world cup, interest is back.. and so has sponsors.
So, expect a BCCI official website to came into picture very soon, which will at least enable us to buy tickets of matches played in India. Indian Premier League (IPL) is also collecting big International names every second day, with the possibilities of tournament being played around April new year. we all cricket fans need one website where all the information will be complied.
Its amazing that once Itsonlycricket.com had Mr Lalit Modi (the vice president of BCCI & Chairman of IPL) as a visitor and he left a comment on the blog. Hopefully, we still have that marketing brain revolving around here and he'll push the things around official website of Indian cricket.
Hope, is a good word!
