YouTube is trying to contend with ESPN by nabbing some rights to live online streaming of sporting events, starting with...cricket. What?

Live streaming will commence in March, starting with 60 matches from the Indian Premier League. (Again, that's cricket, not soccer/football.) Maybe if its popular enough, there will be more than just cricket on the Google-owned site.

I'd actually like to see YouTube get some rights to stream more international sporting events, as it's not always possible to get everything on ESPN 360.
