Cricinfo is a free to access website. This means that you can access any of the content or stats on the website absolutely free of cost. 

Cricinfo derives all of its revenue from Advertising. Any one who has frequented the Cricinfo website would have noted banner ads on display. 

These ads are displayed either in direct partnership with the Advertiser or through an advertising network like Google. 

If you are someone who likes numbers, let me tell you that cricinfo has a thriving user community and reaches over 20 million users every month. With Advertisers ready to shell out a lot of money to tap into a user base this large, the revenues generated by Cricinfo are quite significant. 

Apart from the display ads, Cricinfo also monetizes its content using paid content discovery modules in partnership with Outbrain

Outbrain places ads in the form of links (to content on other websites) on the Cricinfo website. Every time a user clicks on an ad, the advertiser is charged at a CPC rate and this income is shared with Cricinfo based on an agreed revenue share.
