I will never understand why silly cricket boards decide they need to do their best and scrub YouTube and the internet of highlights of series past. I just do not understand it. There I was, hoping to relive the England v. South Africa Test Series of 2009 — just to pass the time — only to find copyright claims instead of videos on my favorite cricket highlight websites.
This has really got to stop! Even the IPL, the world’s most money-obsessed cricket league, saw the benefits of the Internet and diligently posted not only highlights but entire matches for this past season. Really, Cricket South Africa, do you think you stand to make any money from selling highlight reels to cricket channels? (Or am I missing a major point here?)
