 Four months after rival Ten Sports announced their decision to offer free streaming of live cricket matches on their website, Nimbus Communications has also joined the Webcast bandwagon.

Cricket portal Cricketnirvana.com will feature live Webcast of full cricket matches of the much anticipated upcoming tri series between India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. The ODI series which began from January 4 will be followed by a test series between India and Bangladesh, stretching the cricket festivities to a month. The picture quality will match standard definition and could be even projected without loosing data quality.

The video experience will be complimented by commentary, graphs and statistics that will allow viewers to simultaneously check player profiles and content library during live webcasts so that fans who have tuned-in late can catch up on crucial moments of action. These highlights will be hosted permanently on the site so that fans that missed live webcasts can still experience, on-demand Videos, the best moments of the game with the click of a mouse.

Jose Felix, Vice President - New Media, Nimbus Communications Ltd. commented, "Cricketnirvana.com offers a unique capability to integrate live streaming with relevant advertising, just like television".

All this is for India and

All this is for India and India only. It means nothing to the rest of the world. Folks in the Asian Subcontinent do not need to watch Cricket on their computers when they have it on the TVs for a low monthly subscription.

It is those of us in North America who get shafted.

This current Tri-Series featuring Bangladesh, Sri Lanka and India is not available in North America. The ICC tournaments and IPL are all Pay Per View and viewers are charged over $100 per series/event to watch it.

In these tough economic times there is no way people will fork out $300-$400 dollars an year to watch ICC Champions Trophy, IPL, ICC T20 World Cup etc..

So Nimbus and Ten Sports beaming free cricket on their website to Asian subscribers, is a complete waste of their time and resources, if you ask me..
