As sports followers we can be an impatient lot; always wanting the best, and wanting it now. And with the advent of an increasing array of online options we want even more.
Part of the mix is the recent introduction of New Zealand Cricket’s MyBLACKCAPS feature. Signing up for this, and it is free, gives you a range of goodies accessible on your PC, phone or tablet
Probably the biggest carrot in all of this is the video highlights – You can access the SKY TV video highlights package soon after the completion of an innings. If you’re missing the cricket, you can stay up with the play by getting highlights delivered direct to your email inbox as soon as they’re available.
Perfect for when you’re stuck at work and suddenly need a lengthy comfort stop.
There is also “The Inside Edge”; a newsletter focussing on behind-the-scenes activity of the team. Previews, reviews etc, and it also provides the latest news from other top level cricket in NZ.
There is also Priority Ticketing once you are signed up. This includes exclusive ticket offerings for New Zealand matches and savings of up to 35% on the regular public prices.
There are also regular draws to win prizes and get special deals on merchandise, as well as other offers from New Zealand Cricket’s sponsors and partners.
The main thing it is missing as an updated Angst-o-meter
