  1. Cricket is going to be huge on Youtube In my opinion .Theres so many expat Aussies ,Poms, Indians ,Pakistani’s West Indians and South Africans thats this could take off ,Ive streamed cricket form various nafarious sources .This could be a interesting move by Youtube and might even pick up a US audience for the the game ,

    Im a Aussie that lives in the US and cricket dominates TV in summer .They put a game on for 12 hours a day 5 days a week and just have ads during overs and theres all sorts of ticker and bug type advertising on the screen all the time .When they put the stats up its sponsored by a large comapany and theres nearly always some ad on the screen .Perfect for Youtubes Ad model ,

    Im sure Om will be watching .
