New Delhi:In a bid to expand its reach to the Indian cricket fans world over, the billionaire board, BCCI, is planning to go virtual and has signed an agreement with The Cricket Network (TCN) to design, build and operate its official Website.

The initial phase of the Website was expected to go live soon and would be fully functional by October this year when India hosts the ICC Champions Trophy, according to information received.

The Website will enable cricket internet users around the world to access various levels of news, highlights, archival footage, statistics, streaming video, merchandising and mobile phone content.

''Our vision is to embrace the entire Indian community worldwide,'' BCCI vice-president Lalit Modi said today.

''The BCCI will promote this portal on all TV channels that broadcast the Indian home games through branding, which will be prominent on BCCI's live TV feeds around the world. This will help it to become one of the most prominent portals in the world,'' he added.
