Sachin Tendulkar talks about how technology helps, enhances spectator experience
Cricket icon Sachin Tendulkar on Monday said that the use of technology helps to improve cricket and also enhances spectator experience. He was the first batsmen to be given out by the third umpire after TV replays came into being.
“When it comes to technology, I am always on for it even though I was the first to be given out via technology in South Africa in 1992,” Sachin said.
“In 2002, when laptop entered the dressing room, we thought what is it doing here. However, we engaged into what could be achieved with its help. Our team meetings became more precise due to technology,” Sachin, 43, said after inaugurating an online retail initiative launched by a Dubai- based Indian-owned healthcare firm Aster Pharmacy.
“Now you can see the areas where the batsman scores in the first few overs and then later in the innings. It is getting more and more precise. Technology always helps. It has also changed spectator experience,” he said.
Technology like a hotspot, Snickometer helps the spectator to know wheater the batsmen are out or not out. The use of advanced technology has made the sports faster and helps the audience sitting at home to know the game much better.

In many sports technology has helped adjudicators a lot and reduced the burden on the umpires.
Sachin Tendulkar, who has played for 24 years, has seen lots of changes in technology. In the current IPL, the audience at the ground are encourage their opinion on run outs or stumping.
