Wisden.com and CricInfo Merge, as Expected


Two of the biggest cricket sports sites, Wisden.com and CricInfo.com, have decided to merge, as expected. The merger comes in the middle of the Cricket World Cup, being held currently in South Africa and Zimbabwe. The new site, called Wisden Cricinfo, will remain free of charge, with both parties? respective subscription services being retained pending the launch of a new subscription service later in the year. ?CricInfo has built its business based upon free access to content. We certainly don?t plan to change that – but we will look at introducing a subscription element for certain types of premium content later in the year,? said Robin Bevan, new CEO of the joint company.
