Cricinfo's lame servers

Its 7:30 AM here in Brooklyn, and I'm trying to check scores over at Cricinfo. No luck. The site doesn't come up. Frankly, I'm puzzled. Is there any other sports website that claims so much for itself "the biggest, the best", that has so many corporate connections, schemes, collaborations, marketing schemes, and yet, which simply, always, fails to deliver whenever the biggest games show up? Once again, India is playing a one-day international (OK, not just any ODI, one that marks the return of SRT) and Cricinfo's servers (at least the US ones) cannot keep up with the traffic. They've known about this for a while now, and their failure to do something about it speaks of a bizarre indifference.
