Anyone know where to find the latest match photos on the match centre? Im watching Bangladesh v Australia, they were usually on the right side bar on the right but I can't seem to find anything.

Agree with the rest, bring back the old layout.

This is what I see on my screen.

The red areas have been manually added to show how much empty space they are not using. Such a waste. A lot more can be done with that space to make the whole experience better.

They had (seriously, they had) a great site that was properly structured both in layout and content. Now its tripe

How did you manage to get rid of the annoying "video highlights" box that sits between the live score and the commentary? That is pissing me off no end.

I live in the Netherlands. Perhaps we do not have access to those. Don't know.

I actually found something good about the changes to the site.
Each article is no longer bombarded by 10,000 Indians/Paki's/Sri Lankans and their stupid comments.

Layout is shocking. "For the mobile era," they say, ignoring the fact that that's what apps and mobile sites are for.

Given it's the same model as used by other ESPN sites, it's pretty clearly been foist upon them by those who have no knowledge of the workings of the site.

And it's not just cricinfo. It seems every time there's an update of any app, it gets worse. Silly me, I thought the idea of updating is to improve something.

Is anybody familiar with the Commentary function? It is the link which features in all Cricinfo's scorecards which allows you to see how the scoring progressed ball by ball for each innings, and also for individual innings. I have been clicking on it today for a game which interested me but I am getting nothing.

The recent upgrades have made it far more difficult to navigate.

I think they need to realise not everyone (or probably, hardly anyone) is accessing the site on a touch-screen tablet.

What particularly annoys me is the removal of real-time updates of career and season statistics in live scorecards.

That's done as a way to pump the ad view numbers up. Cheeky as **** but it's pretty par for the course these days.
Yeah or forces you to sign up as member which I have done just to avoid.

Content wise it is absolutely unparalleled and there really is no competition. Not a huge fan of the changes, but pretty comfortable in navigating it by now. Not so bad on macbook laptop, but is horrible trying to read articles on my phone when it keeps jumping up to the top of the page as you are trying to read.
