    The ICC's domains

    Ok this isn't really anything about cricket per se. But it is about the ICC.

    The ICC's website redirects to www.cricketratings.com for the cricket rankings, sponsored by a South Korean electronics giant. Several links within that page redirected to www.sidlothian.com! I noticed this several months ago, but I didn't blog about it. Here goes.

    The whois listing for cricketratings.com has Benedict Bermange (benedict at bermange.com) as being the registrant. sidlothian.com has Sid Lothain (not Lothian?!) as the registrant. The ICC's website icc-cricket.com is shown as being owned by 'International Cricket Council, Lords Cricket Ground, The Clock Tower, St Johns wood Road, London NW8 8QN, UK' and Mukesh Karsan (mukesh at icc-cricket.com) as being the Technical/Administrative contact.

    Are either of those two affiliated to the ICC? Going by the whois information, there is no evidence to suggest that either of those two work for the ICC. Why does cricketratings.com have content from sidlothian.com? Why isn't the ICC listing it's Dubai address? Will the ICC eventually buy out the cricketratings.com domain?

    1 sledge(s):

    Benedict Bermange set up cricketratings.com for C&L (Coopers & Lybrand) which then became PricewaterhouseCoopers. Thus C&L ratings became PWC Ratings.

    Then PWC/ICC deal happened (I guess! since no Press Release was out) which resulted in ICC taking over the ratings and rebranding that as ICC ratings.

    As to Sid Lothain - I guess he/his agency would have done the programming that went behind the PWC ratings and several queries are still made to his site.

    icc-cricket.com was registered when ICC were still at London. It is a bit too much to expect that they would update domain registration records after they moved to Dubai:-)
