ATLANTA (CNN) -- Looking for the latest from the international world of sports? Where else but the World Wide Web would you expect to find what your local cable channel never airs?


The batsman and the wicket

For the lover of the wonderful world of cricket -- there's a Web page of the same name, with all the very latest in cricket news.

The site is a collection of links, including an explanation of the rules, score cards, and a site that purports to settle the argument over who is number one.

And even if you can't catch the ICC Cricket Tournament in Kuala Lumpur, you can get the highlights right over the net.

Bet on it

The Dania Jai-Alai Company's Web page contains everything you'd ever want to know about the fast-paced game.

Here you can take a quiz on the favorite of Basque sports -- or look up some of the answers if you find you don't know enough.

And as the site points out -- jai-alai is a betting sport.

Wrestling, Japanese style

It's a Sumo World has information about the hottest tournaments, and some philosophy of the Japanese wrestling spirit.

It can also connect you to the home page of Hawaii's champion Konishiki, where you can follow his tournament action -- and get his messages designed to inspire kids to excel.


A daily kick

And finally, there are more than 600 soccer pages on the net.

Daily Soccer provides fast scores on games all around the world, some going back several months.

It also gives you a chance to play manager yourself. As the head of a fantasy soccer team, pick your players -- and start competing with others on the Web.

The winner gets $10,000 and a trip to Amsterdam -- not bad for virtual sports.
