Cricinfo at 20ish: CricInfo365 at 15

Submitted by rickeyre on July 17, 2013 - 12:12am

Today, July 16, is the 15th anniversary of the first edition of CricInfo365 - the daily news email service of CricInfo, then a joint venture with Direct Network Publishing (later 365Corp). I was its creator, editor, and in those early days, its full-time staff of one, and worked on about a thousand editions (through a name change to CricInfo Daily) until August 2001.

Despite it being Cricinfo's first serious move into news content publishing, CricInfo365 hasn't gained a mention on the CricinfoAt20 timeline for CricInfo's 20th anniversary which is being celebrated this year. More troubling however is that the archives of each daily newsletter were taken offline in the mid-2000s.

Many, but not all, editions of CricInfo365 can be found on's Wayback Machine if you know where to look. Here, though, is the very first edition of CricInfo365, from Thursday July 16, 1998:
