Alexa can count only from 1 to 10

Alexa is the smart virtual assistance by Amazon. It is beating google now and Siri on non-screen devices. Alexa is hailed for its intelligence but it seems that the Alexa knows to count only from 1 to 10. By 1 to 10, I mean exactly from 1 to 10; neither more nor less. Even asking Alexa to count from 1 to 5 or 3 to 10 or 3 to 5 results in an apology from Alexa. Watch the above video to see for yourself.

BCCI fails to renew domain name for its official website

www.bcci.tv is(or should I use "was") the BCCI's official website where it posts news about Indian cricket and even live-stream the cricket events. I tried to reach to their page and it's rendering above page as the domain has expired and BCCI(Board of Control for Cricket in India) has failed to renew it within the expiry deadline.

After using whois for this domain name, I got to know that the domain was registered on 2nd February 2006 and was updated again today on 4th February 2018.



Will BCCI be able to regain its domain back?

Update: BCCI has got its domain back and showing the contents as earlier.
