Two years on…

Dear Readers, 

Its been 2 years since this blog was started in Dec 2005. I should probably have written this article on 9th Dec, but I got caught up in other things.

This blog has so far been read 80,913 times, with 2743 comments. There are a total of 354 posts.

In Dec 2006, the blog had been read 32500 times, with 1500 comments. There were a total of 250 blog posts.

So the actual delta for 2007 is 48413 times read, 1243 comments, and 104 blog posts.

My biggest problem this year has been …. interestingly, the same that associate countries also have :). The fact that since I am not a professional writer, the site goes into a hiatus once the work gets hectic. This has primarily been the reason why the number of posts this year has not been the same as last year, infact it has been less than half the number.

But there have been more comments per post, for which the readers like you have to be thanked. It has kept the site alive during periods when the content was not coming forth.

The year overall has been one of extremes. Ireland beating Pakistan and Bangladesh, Scotland losing to WI on the penultimate ball, Bangladesh beating SA and India, Zimbabwe beating Aus in 20 20 WC, Oman making it through to ICC Trophy, Uganda and Denmark beating Bermuda, Bermuda getting a viewership of 1 billion people in a group match at the WC….. the list goes on. Many of the themese from the previous year were equally present this year as well. Lack of playing numbers, ICC funding, expats, playing calender etc.

Hopefully the next year will be better, both for this blog and also for associate world of cricket.

Regards,
Nasir M. Khan

    Great blog – I’ve enjoyed reading it and commenting on it since I discovered it about 12 months ago.

    Not sure about the new look though – black background makes the text much harder to read.

    I concur entirely with Rich B’s sentiments (again). Nasir please do something about the black background, my eyes hurt already

    Thanks for the Blog Nasir. very interesting and informative and opens up another side of the game I understood very little about.

    As for the other colour scheme, looked very trendy to me.

    People were complaining about the black blackground so I had to change it back to something else….. 🙂

    Keep up the good work Nasir, hopefully in the coming years, this blog will be filled with lots of good news for us non-test fans.
