Mix and match

Now all this information is available to you, it gives you the opportunity to mix and match your own feeds using services like Yahoo! Pipes. For instance, here is one we did which combines every county in England and funnels it into one feed. Here's another we've done for all our Associate countries. If you mash any interesting combinations, let us know through the feedback link at the bottom of the page.


Each of our blogs has its own feed, or alternatively you can subscribe to this one Blogs RSS Feed which contains all posts by our bloggers.

But what is RSS and why do I care?

RSS (or Atom, or feeds, or XML as they are also known) allow you to be told when websites have added new content. So whenever a piece about Sachin Tendulkar, Kevin Pietersen or any other of our 55,000 players is written, you'll be notified with a brief synopsis into your feed reader. The same goes for any domestic or international series, or teams from Derbyshire to Delhi; Argentina to Australia. You can then click through and be taken directly to the article.

The BBC describes RSS as follows. "There is some discussion as to what RSS stands for, but most people plump for 'Really Simple Syndication'. In essence, the feeds themselves are just web pages, designed to be read by computers rather than people."

It is not a replacement to browsing but an addition, keeping you informed of the latest news and allowing you to choose what you read and when you read it.

We hope you enjoy it.
