    Hello All,

    I'm sorry to inform you but we will no longer be allowing any cricket downloads on the site. It is due to cricket boards asking us to respect their copyrighted content (which we are) - we received a warning.

    However, as a courtesy, we will leave all the old threads open for 30 days for anyone who would like to download whatever was posted.

    Thanks for understanding; we did everything we could.

    Sincerely,
    Cricfire Staff

    I understand your frustration, this is out of our hands. We can't simply take the risk.
