ESPN's been buying websites left and right of late, and the arbiters of cool have apparently purchased yet another site to provide you coverage of a sport you probably care nothing about.
Sure I like cricket...at 3AM when I come home drunk and don't want to watch an old Real World Reunion show. Well the company that makes sure you know which sports are hot right now has acquired the premier Cricket info site....
"In another significant landmark in its evolution, Cricinfo has been acquired by ESPN, the global sports media powerhouse. The acquisition was announced by ESPN and the Wisden Group earlier this morning.So add Cricket to Mixed Martial Arts, Arena Football, Bowling, and NASCAR to the list of "Items you will see on Sports Center more than Hockey."
With this, Cricinfo joins a stable of top-drawer sports websites including ESPN.com, the US's premier online sports destination, and ESPNsoccernet.com - the world's leading English-language football website."
