We often watch ODI’s, T20’s and tests on TV, even when tournaments like the Big Bash and the IPL are aired on various other mediums. The pleasure of watching a match on television is unmatched: the satisfaction for a player to see himself hitting a bowler out of the park or removing the stumps of a batsman is hard to replicate. But the other side of the coin is that only international-level players have the pleasure of video data & analysis.
Ten years ago, the concept of a local match being streamed with live footage was unimaginable. However, times have changed, and technology has evolved. That’s where technology companies come into play, like United Kingdom-based PitchVision.
Video data of a match assists the players in more than one way to improve their game. All international teams follow a detailed video analysis for each player of the team to work on their technique, and to detect flaws and mistakes. All these benefits are now possible even at the grassroots level which will eventually help the players in improving their game, to hone their skills and to work more efficiently on their technique. In modern day cricket, the role of an analyst and coach has become increasingly important.
