After a long delay, the Cricket Board finally launched its official website on Saturday following the conclusion of its 79th AGM at which Shashank Manohar took over as its President from Sharad Pawar.

The BCCI website, www.bcci.tv, will offer millions of Indian cricket fans across the world deferred streaming video and mobile content apart from 'live' scoreboard of matches, player interviews, profiles, statistics and fan interaction.

The website is being produced and maintained by Global Cricket Ventures, which also manages the official IPL site www.iplt20.com, as per a ten-year agreement it has signed with the BCCI.

Pawar said that it will help in bringing Indian cricket fans closer to the game.

"I'm happy that this alliance between Global Cricket Ventures and the BCCI will further significantly enrich the user experience for the Indian cricket fans around the world with a direct window to the on-field action through next generation technologies", he said.

"I'm certain the forthcoming India-Australia series itself will generate a lot of traffic to the BCCI website," said Satyajit Swaminathan, president of GCV.
