It's more of a espn.com layout now but I liked the old layout better, It was simple and easy to Navigate through.

Some parts work with the new style better others don't what you guys think?

I like it.
More details on every pages. Even in the scorecard, they tell you how the bowler got wickets and the batsman got out.

Much better than before. :up: :up:

don't really like the new layout, the old one was easier to navigate through and easier to read.

I'm digging the new scorecards tho, it's more Aesthetically pleasing and they have better weather updates now too

The design will only get better with time. So will user acceptance rates.

I like it. Looks like the espn site of course.Scorecards look awesome. They've expanded the specials part, which I like since I read all those blogs/special articles. I am looking forward to the video though. I don't get to see much in the way of cricket live, so even highlights (all 20s or so of them) would be cool.


They have emphazied the espn aspect of it..

ESPN acquired cricinfo a couple of years ago, so it was only a matter of time.

umm its.... different lol
cricinfo is my homepage and when it appeared I was kinda confused as to what it was .. I eventually realised it was the new layout but it was kind of "in my face" if you get what i mean.
I'll get used to it, even though the other one was soo much more simpler .

It was about time Cricinfo changed their layout.
Not that i mean the last one was of any inferior quality, but i think they have had the same design since thier Day 1. The old one great, simply because we have learned to navigate it over the years and knew exactly what to find, where to find.

But like any thriving business, they needed to revamp their image and i'm glad they have finally done it. Changes are always hard to accept at first but i'm sure we'll also grow to love it with time.

I have not personally browsed through the whole thing as yet, but it does get my seal of approval.

I like change, chage is good, as long as it revitalises the user experience without comprising the content and navigational qualities.

I don't. It's slower. The new scorecard is also worse. The colors are horrible, I want the old grayscale colors. You also get only half of full scorecard when you click full scorecard.

Do you have Javascripts turned off? It may be the reason.

hardly. I wanted to check which is the best "Run out" team in the T20 and do a comparison of our team with South Africa and there arent enough options to plug in.

still sux as ever.

i can't find the stats for domestic tournaments, these were much easier to find with the old cricinfo.

They changed the behavior now. Before it used to show only full scorecard of the batting side (you had to click again to get the other half, but there was no way to get the full scorecard)
