Google Cricket Sidebar Update

The Google cricket sidebar is inching its way to release. There's not too much more to do, but free time has been scarce of late making the last stage of testing and development drag on.

One of the biggest problems is the sheer number of games available to watch at any given time. There's test matches, limited overs, and 20/20 games. Then there's the domestic competitions from all over the world including India, South Africa, and Australia. The end result is a lot of different variations to test, but which can only be tested when the games are being played!

To help get a release out sooner, I'm considering offering a reduced version that will feature the one day and test matches from only one international team. My personal preference is for my home team of Australia -- but I'm willing to consider any alternative test playing nation based on feedback.

So, post your comments here or send me an email!


  1. Hi! I would love to have South Africa's matches available - please?!
    Thanks for all the hard work that must be going in to this product - I cannot wait for the release!

    Hi, I think India would be a good choice. Don't blame a guy for plugging for his country here. But, if you need any help in programming let me know how I could get involved. I am quite familiar with programming as well.

    Also, I would love to help you test it. I think you'll want to talk to the Cricinfo guy who commented above me. Could be quite useful.
