NEW YORK (AP) _ When Mick Jagger learned he couldn’t always get the cricket results he wanted, he realized the answer was practically under his thumb.
The Rolling Stones front man started a new Internet company to bring cricket matches to cyberspace.
His company, Jagged Internetworks, along with WorldTel in Connecticut and CricInfo, plans to netcast the Akai-Singer Champions Trophy, an international cricket tournament from Sharjah, United Arab Emirates.
Cricket-loving Web surfers can use the site to hear live broadcasts of the matches and see video highlights afterward.
Jagger got the idea to put cricket on the Web when he couldn’t follow England’s team while on tour.
If the netcast is successful, Jagger said he plans to carry more tournaments next year and include other sports in the lineup.
The tournament will be broadcast from www.cricket.org.
