BCCI, the richest cricket board in the world, was not able to renew the domain of its official website www.bcci.tv in time, after which the website went offline.
Website registrars register.com and namejet.com had put the domain name up for public bidding, receiving seven bids with the highest of USD 270.
The domain was valid from 2-2-2006 to 2-2-2019. The updation date however happened to be February 3, 2018. The board’s website was dysfunctional till Sunday evening and even more embarrassment as the senior national men’s team was playing the second ODI against South Africa at the Centurion.
The BCCI website is an important source of live scores across age categories besides putting up key documents regarding the functioning of the board.
In September, the powerful board bagged a $2.55 billion for granting the IPL media rights to Star Sports. The board also gets the maximum revenues from the ICC, $405 million.
