There are lots of websites out there for cricket players and fans. This terse list seeks to isolate which sites and blogs you should keep track of for coverage, equipment, entertainment, and opinion.

 

1.    ESPNcricinfo.com

ESPNcricinfo is the world’s most popular cricket website and for good reason.

It also has a pretty good App for iPhone and Android.

4. Sticksports.com

For pure entertainment factor and addictive simplicity, you can’t go past Stick Sports. Home of the original stick cricket game, Stick Sports is now your location for a range of other simple, fun and free cricket and sports games. Just like the real game, the original stick cricket is all about timing. There are only so many strokes you can play and clearing the boundary is all about expert short selection and precise timing.

 

5. www.kingcricket.co.uk

 

King Cricket is not only a blog full of information and opinion, it’s also hilarious. Features such as ‘Animals Being Conspicuously Indifferent Towards Cricket’ is an example of some of the important topics being addressed by the website.

Not only is King Cricket up to date, it’s also updated by the session! The dry sense of humour is spotted through every story.

Take, for instance, these dry-witted gems from a story about Jake Lehmann (son of Australian Coach Darren Lehmann) signing for Yorkshire.

“He needed to hit a four. He hit a six, which was also acceptable.”

“Lehmann’s ludicrous moustache and foppish hair…replaces Travis Head whose comedy attributes are largely limited to nomenclature.”
