The concept of live streaming on the internet has caught on like wild fire across the globe. Fans of cricket have benefited greatly from the technology as it often happens that one is not able to access television. The idea of having to wait for next day’s newspaper is quite frustrating and thanks to internet, it doesn’t have to be that way anymore.

However, there is a downside to this too. Often there are malignant websites disguised under the veil of free live streaming, but will only infest your computers with bugs and viruses. Moreover, in more grave cases, it could be used to spy on the user or steal information from devices. Be smart when visiting live streaming websites. Use only authentic sources for the service.
