               the Ordinary Shares in issue on the Exercise Date.

               paragraphs (i)-(iii) of this sub-paragraph Clause 9.2.1, it shall
               fall within the first of the applicable sub-paragraphs to the
               exclusion of the remaining sub-paragraphs:

               (i)  If and whenever there shall be an alteration in the nominal
                    value of the Ordinary Shares as a result of a consolidation
                    or sub-division, the Subscription Price in force immediately
                    prior to such alteration shall be adjusted by multiplying it
                    by a fraction of which the numerator shall be the nominal
                    amount of one such Ordinary Share immediately after such
                    alteration and the denominator shall be the nominal amount
                    of one such Ordinary Share immediately before such
                    alteration, and such adjustment shall become effective
                    immediately after the alteration takes effects.

               (ii) If and whenever the Company shall issue to holders of
                    Ordinary Shares any Ordinary Shares credited as fully paid
                    by way of capitalisation of

                                       15

                      reserves or profits (other than Ordinary Shares paid up
                      out of distributable reserves and issued in lieu of a cash
                      dividend), the Subscription Price in force immediately
                      prior to such issue shall be adjusted by multiplying it by
                      a fraction of which the numerator shall be the aggregate
                      nominal amount of the issued Ordinary Shares immediately
                      before such issue and the denominator shall be the
                      aggregate nominal amount of the issued Ordinary Shares
                      immediately after such issue, and such adjustment shall
                      become effective as at the date of issue of such Ordinary
                      Shares.

               (iii)  If and whenever the Company shall offer or procure the
                      offer to holders of Ordinary Shares (in their capacity as
                      such holders) of new Ordinary Shares for subscription or
                      purchase by way of rights, or shall offer or grant to
                      holders of Ordinary Shares any options, rights (including,
                      without limitation, conversion rights attaching to
                      convertible securities) or warrants to subscribe for or
                      purchase new Ordinary Shares in each case at a price that
                      is less than the Subscription Price, the Subscription
                      Price shall be reduced to such price. Such adjustment
                      shall become effective immediately on the date of issue or
                      purchase of such Ordinary Shares or grant of such options,
                      rights or warrants (as the case may be). For the avoidance
                      of doubt this Clause 9.2.1 shall not apply to the
                      allotment and issue of Ordinary Shares in the Company to
                      Simon King at Final Completion pursuant to Clause 8.2.3
                      above.

     9.2.2

               (i)    If and whenever any of one or more events or circumstances
                      specified in Clause 9.2.1 above (or any other events or
                      circumstances which the Company in its absolute discretion
                      determines should result in an adjustment to the
                      Subscription Price) shall occur or exist, and if the
                      adjustment would result in a reduction of the Subscription
                      Price where such adjustment is made other than by reason
                      of the consolidation of Ordinary Shares, such adjustment
                      shall take effect as so determined from the relevant date
                      specified in whichever of Clauses 9.2.1(i) to (iii) above.

               The Investor will be given notice in writing of all adjustments.
               The Company at its expense will promptly compute such adjustment
               or readjustment in accordance with the terms of this Clause 9 and
               furnish to the Investor a certificate setting forth such
               adjustment or readjustment and showing in reasonable detail the
               facts upon which such adjustment or readjustment is based,
               including a statement of the Subscription Price in effect
               immediately prior to such adjustment and after giving effect to
               such adjustment. No adjustment will be made to the Subscription
               Price (other than by reason of a consolidation of Ordinary Shares
               as referred to in sub-paragraph Clause 9.2.1 (i) above) if it
               would result in an increase in the Subscription Price and in any
               event no adjustment will be made if such adjustment would be less
               than one percent of the Subscription Price then in force and on
               any adjustment the adjusted Subscription Price will be rounded
               down to the nearest one penny.

                                       16
<PAGE>

               Any adjustment not so made and any amount by which the
               Subscription Price is rounded down will be carried forward and
               taken into account in any subsequent adjustment.

               (ii)   Whenever the Subscription Price is adjusted as provided in
                      this paragraph (other than by reason of the consolidation
                      of Ordinary Shares as referred in sub-paragraph Clause
                      9.2.1 (i) above), the Company shall adjust the number of
                      Additional Subscription Shares available to the Investor
                      at the same time as such adjustment takes effect. The
                      number of Additional Subscription Shares to which the
                      Investor will be entitled shall be calculated by using the
                      following formula:

                                      AxB
                                      ---
                                       C

               Where:

               A is the number of Additional Subscription Shares issuable upon
               exercise of the Subscription Rights immediately before the
               adjustment;

               B is the Subscription Price immediately before the adjustment;
               and

               C is the adjusted Subscription Price.

               (iii)  Whenever the Subscription Price is adjusted in accordance
                      with this Clause by reason of the consolidation of
                      Ordinary Shares as referred to in clause 9.2.1(i) above,
                      the number of Additional Shares for which the Investor is
                      entitled to subscribe will be reduced accordingly.

               (iv)   The Subscription Price may never be adjusted so that it
                      results in the Investor paying a price per share that is
                      less than the nominal value of the Company's Ordinary
                      Shares then in issue. Any adjustment which would, but for
                      this paragraph, result in a Subscription Price of less
                      than such nominal value shall be treated as an adjustment
                      of the Subscription Price to an amount equal to the
                      nominal amount then prevailing.

               (v)    If the Investor shall, for any reason whatsoever, disagree
                      with the Company's adjustment of the Subscription Price,
                      then the Company and the Investor shall negotiate in good
                      faith in an effort to reach an agreement upon the
                      Subscription Price for a period of ten (10) days beginning
                      at any time following notice by the Investor of such
                      disagreement. If the Company and the Investor are unable
                      to reach agreement as so provided, the Company shall, at
                      its own expense, within thirty (30 days) after the
                      expiration of the ten-day period referenced above, engage
                      an independent firm of auditors nominated by the Directors
                      of the Company (the "Appraiser") to make an independent
                      determination of the Subscription Price for the Additional
                      Shares (the "Appraiser's Determination"). The Appraiser's

                                       17
<PAGE>

                      Determination shall be final and binding on the Company
                      and the Investor.

     9.2.3     The Investor shall not be entitled to exercise its Subscription
               Rights for Additional Subscription Shares if such number of
               Additional Shares would result in the Investor holding more than
               25 per cent of the fully-diluted ordinary share capital of the
               Company following exercise of the Subscription Rights .

     9.2.4

     (a)       In the event that the Investor's aggregate holding of Ordinary
               Shares in the Company falls to less than 20 per cent of the
               issued share capital of the Company other than by reason of the
               Investor transferring its Subscription Shares in the Company, the
               Investor shall be entitled, at any time, to subscribe for such
               number of further Ordinary Shares as are necessary (the "Anti-
               Dilution Shares") to restore the Investor's holding of Ordinary
               Shares to 20 per cent of the enlarged issued share capital of the
               Company (taking into account all shares to be issued pursuant to
               this clause 9).

     (b)       The Anti-Dilution Shares shall be subscribed for in the same
               manner as the Additional Shares set out in Clause 9.1 save for
               the Subscription Price which shall be calculated as set out
               below.

     (c)       The subscription price for each of the Anti-Dilution Shares shall
               be an amount equal to either:

               (i)  if the Ordinary Shares are listed on a Stock Exchange, the
                    average of the bid and offer prices of Ordinary Shares on
                    the Business Day immediately prior to dilution of the
                    Investor's holding; or

               (ii) if the Ordinary Shares are not listed on a Stock Exchange, a
                    price equivalent to the value per Ordinary Share calculated
                    by reference to the most recent issuance of Ordinary Shares
                    resulting in dilution of the Investor's holding of Ordinary
                    Shares.

     9.2.5     In case any event shall occur as to which the provisions of this
               Clause 9 hereof are not strictly applicable but the failure to
               make any adjustment would not, in the opinion of the Investor,
               fairly protect the purchase rights represented by the
               Subscription Rights in accordance with the essential intent and
               principles of this Clause 9, then, in each such case, at the
               reasonable request of the Investor, the Company shall appoint (at
               the cost of the Investor, unless an adjustment in favour of the
               Investor is deemed necessary, in which case, at the cost of the
               Company) a firm of independent investment bankers of recognised
               national standing (which shall be completely independent of the
               Company and shall be reasonably satisfactory to the Investor)
               which shall give their opinion on the adjustment, if any, on a
               basis consistent with the essential intent and principles
               established in this Clause 9, necessary to preserve, without
               dilution the Subscription Rights of the Investor. Upon receipt,
               the Company will promptly deliver a copy of the opinion to the
               Investor.

       true and correct and not misleading.

10.2   The Warrantors undertake that (save only as may be necessary to give
       effect to this Agreement) they shall not, and shall procure (as far as
       they can) that the Company and the Subsidiaries shall take all reasonable
       steps so as not, prior to Final Completion, to do any act or thing or
       omit to do any act or thing the commission or omission of which would
       constitute a breach of any of the Warranties if they were given at Final
       Completion or which would make any of the Warranties untrue or inaccurate
       or misleading if they were so given at Final Completion;

10.3   The Warrantors acknowledge to the Investor as at the date hereof that the
       Warrantors have agreed to give the Warranties in consideration of the

       expression of similar meaning is used in Schedule 5 it shall mean to the
       best of the knowledge information and belief of the Warrantors having
       made all reasonable enquiry.

10.5   No liability shall attach to the Warrantors in respect of Relevant Claims
       unless the aggregate cumulative amount payable by the Warrantors in
       respect of all such claims exceeds (Pounds)10,000 whereupon the
       Warrantors shall be liable for the whole of such claims and not merely
       for the excess.

       Relevant Claims shall be limited to an amount equal to the Consideration.

10.7   The Management Shareholders' aggregate liability under this Agreement in

       their shareholding in the Company bear to one another as at the date of
       this Agreement.

10.8   The limitations in this Clause 10 shall not apply to Relevant Claims
       against a Warrantor which (or delay in discovery of which) are the
       consequence of fraud, wilful default or wilful concealment by that
       Warrantor.

10.9   The Warrantors shall have no liability in respect of any Relevant Claim
       unless the Investor shall have given notice in writing to the Warrantors
       of such Relevant Claim specifying (in reasonable detail) the matter which
       gives rise to the Relevant Claim, the nature of the Relevant Claim and
       the amount claimed in respect thereof (detailing the Investor's
       calculation of the loss thereby alleged to have been suffered by it),

       more than 4 months after the publication of the audited accounts for the
       Financial Year ended 31 March, 2001.

       reimbursement or restitution more than once in respect of the same loss.

                                       19
<PAGE>

10.11  No representations or warranties express or implied, statutory or
       otherwise, made by or on behalf of any of the Warrantors to any other of
       the parties in connection with or arising out of the subscription of the
       Subscription Shares and which are not contained in this Agreement shall
       give rise to any liability on the part of the maker or makers of any such
       representations or warranties and the Investor confirms that it has not
       relied on any representations or warranty of any such person which is not
       contained in this Agreement.

10.12  All and any liability of the Warrantors in respect of any Relevant Claim
       under the Warranties notified to it in accordance with Clause 10.10 shall
       (if such Relevant Claim has not previously been satisfied, settled or
       withdrawn) be extinguished on the expiry of six months from the date of
       such notification of the such Relevant Claim unless the Investors shall
       within such period have issued and validly served on at least one of the
       Warrantors proceedings in respect of such Relevant Claim.

10.13  The Warrantors shall not be liable in respect of any Relevant Claim in
       respect of the Warranties to the extent that it arises or is increased as
       a result of any change in law (or change in the interpretation of law) or
       in administrative practice of any government, governmental department,
       agency or regulatory body occurring after the date of Initial Completion
       (whether or not the change purports to be effective retrospectively in
       whole or in part).

10.14  If the Warrantors make any payment by way of damage for breach of the
       Warranties or otherwise make payment in respect of any Relevant Claim
       under the Warranties (a "Damages Payment") and the Investor receives any
       sum (other than from the Warrantors) which payment would not have been
       received but for the circumstance giving rise to the Relevant Claim in
       respect of which the Damages Payment was made, the Investor shall, once
       it has received such sum, forthwith repay (net of taxation or costs of
       recovery, if any applicable thereto) to the Warrantors an amount equal to
       the lesser of (a) the amount or value of such sum or (b) the Damages
       Payment.

10.15  The Warrantors shall not be liable in respect of any Relevant Claim to
       the extent that it relates to a liability which is contingent or not
       capable of being quantified unless and until the liability ceases to be
       contingent or becomes capable of being quantified, as the case may be
       (provided that if one of the Warrantors has been notified of the Relevant
       Claim, to the extent known by the Investor, within the period set out in
       Clause 10.9, the period set out in Clause 10.12 shall be extended to six
       months after the date that the liability ceases to be contingent or
       becomes capable of being quantified as the case may be).

10.16  The Investor shall take and shall procure that all other relevant members
       of the Investor's Group shall take all reasonable steps to mitigate any
       loss or liability which is or might become the subject of a Relevant
       Claim under this Agreement.

10.17  The provisions of this Clause 10 shall apply notwithstanding anything
       else in this Agreement to the contrary.

10.18  In return for the Investor agreeing to issue the Consideration ADRs, the
       Company warrants and represents as of the date hereof and as of Final
       Completion in the terms set out in Schedule 7.

10.19  In return for the Company agreeing to issue the Subscription Shares the

               properties and assets and carry on its business as it is now
               being conducted.

       (b)     Save for a resolution being passed by the requisite number of
               Investor shareholders waiving rights of pre-emption over Investor
               common stock in connection with the creation of, inter alia, the
               Consideration ADRs, the Investor has the corporate power and
               authority to execute and deliver this Agreement and all other
               documents hereby contemplated, to consummate the transactions
               hereby and thereby contemplated and to take all other actions
               required to be taken by it pursuant to the provisions hereof and

               Agreement and all other documents hereby contemplated to be
               executed by the Investor has been, and the consummation by the
               Investor of the transactions hereby and thereby contemplated has

               hereby contemplated nor the consummation of the transactions
               hereby and thereby contemplated shall (i) constitute any
               violation or breach of the Certificate of Incorporation or By-
               laws of the Investor, (ii) constitute a default under or a
               violation or breach of, or result in acceleration of any
               obligation under, any provision of any contract, lease, mortgage
               or other instrument to which it is a party, or (iii) violate any
               judgment, order, writ, injunction, decree, statute, rule or
               regulation affecting the Investor or any of its assets.

       (d)     The Consideration ADRs to be issued pursuant to the provisions of
               this Agreement will, upon such issuance, be duly authorised,
               legally and validly issued and fully paid.

       own account or in conjunction with or on behalf of any person or persons
       whether directly or indirectly:

       11.1.1  whether as principal, agent, shareholder, consultant, partner,
               employee, member, or in any other capacity whatsoever,
               participate in, engage in, or be in any manner associated with
               any internet based cricket business that competes with the
               Company or its Subsidiaries or any other business which competes
               with the Business;

       11.1.2  solicit or entice away or endeavour to solicit or entice away
               from the Company or its subsidiaries any officer, manager,
               servant or other employee who was at Initial Completion engaged
               in the Business whether or not such person would commit a breach
               of his contract of employment by reason of leaving service.

11.2   For the purpose of Clause 11.1 above the term "Relevant Date" shall mean
       the earlier of:

       acknowledges that each of the Senior Managers may continue to participate
       in the activities of the companies, organizations, societies and

       participate in any other similar activities with the prior consent of the
       Investor (not to be unreasonably withheld).

11.4   Each of the Senior Management acknowledges and agrees that because of the
       world wide access of the internet and world wide web, that the provisions

       modifications necessary to make them valid and effective.
