Cricket being what it is, its journalists need to cover much more than just what happened on a field during a session.
Over the years, Cricinfo has expanded its operations and the results were plain during the Sri Lankan terror attack. Constant updates; exclusives from the players involved, including Sangakarra’s breathtaking account (what would have happened if that bullet fizzing past his ear had inched a bit closer?) and Younis Khan’s what-if; reactions from across the cricket world, from Strauss in the West Indies to Dhoni in New Zealand and Lorgat at the ICC. Overall, an excellent job.
