BCCI Gifts iPads to the Scorers; To Bring Minute by Minute Match Updates
It has been announced by the BCCI that scores of over 2,000 matches will be updated live on the BCCI website this season. The Matches include women’s games along with the U-16 and U-19 matches that will be across the country.
Exclusively for the cricket followers, the BCCI will update the live details of runs scored, wickets taken and analysis in domestic and international cricket.
“We’re aiming to position BCCI’s official digital platforms as the single comprehensive source of information on all Indian cricket,” says Anirudh Chaudhary, BCCI treasurer, who as the chairman of the Data Management Committee in 2012-13 had initiated this overhaul.
The present data committee, headed by Samarjit Gaekwad, is working closely with the Information Technology committee, led by Sudhir Dabir, to come up with an integrated website.
Six scorers from each recognised state associations have been given iPads that are equipped with scoring applications. From Now on, every stroke played by every cricketer (even one playing for a U-16 team) will be plotted on a wagon wheel. Live ball-by-ball scoring and pitch-maps will now be available for even junior and women’s cricket matches.
Few workshops were conducted by the BCCI for the scorers earlier this year and since these iPads are connected to nodal computers, everything will be centralised. So if a junior cricketer scores a stunning 100 at a remote centre where the telecast is not posibble, the video will be uploaded on the website for fans to cheer on.
The BCCI is also mulling Online Player Registration and issuing smart cards to players, which will help bonafide cricketers to benefit from BCCI’s corporate tie-ups. However, it is the website that will face the huge task of uploading the action from most U-19 and U-16 games.
Every venue on the junior circuit has four cameras, which have hitherto been used as part of BCCI’s umpire’s project. The plan is to integrate all data that is at BCCI’s disposal. Officials in the board say that a fundamental template is ready, and only awaiting modular embellishments.
