Crickick.com gets a new name hrgcricstats.com

Crickick.com was doing extremely well during its existence. This can be veiwed by the fact that during the World Cup 2011,  the portal had 900,000 plus hits on a particular day. So much was the popularity of the portal. It was on google crawl which attracted a huge cricket netizens. The contents were extraordinarily excellent and some of them were researched.  We were unable to open the site on the day when we had 900,000 plus hits and continue our good work  as the portal had crashed. The reason for crash was the limited bandwidth. Luckily we had saved  contents of crickick.com upto the day of its crash

We felt that we have cheated our visitors, which forced us to host a new portal by name hrgcricstats.com. We have transferred the saved contents of crickick.com to the new portal hrgcricstats.com

Thus the birth of hrgcricstats.com. We are proud to say that we started catering cricket statistics of all the matches played all over the world in our new portal as we were doing in our old portal
