I am a cricket fan from Oman. We had an article about cricket in our local Times of Oman paper and I believe it should be featured here. The link is http://www.timesofoman.com/newsdetails.asp?newsid=31338&pn=local

It concerns a launch of a cricket website by an Oman batting prodigy. This sort of stuff is huge news cricket-wise in our part of the world.

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
