Cricket taps bowling technology – iPad




The International Cricket Council is on an ongoing process in the development of a technology that will evaluate bowlers’ bowling in matches as well as during training. The collaboration is with Australian institutions that include ones of engineering, science and sports. The process has stepped into its second stage of work.

The technology would judge the actions of bowlers in a match-like environment. The same kind of equipment and expertise is also used with phones, car crash detection systems and the iPad today. The sensors that are incorporated in the equipment will be able to review the bowlers’s actions during play. The bowlers will have to wear the device on their hands but it is assured that this will not hinder their performance. There are all efforts being put into the research and construction to make the equipment as comfortable, economical and productive.

After the many scandals that surround bowlers, from various countries, this technology strives to bring unbiased and fair practices to the ground. The bowler will not be affected on his bowling while he wears the gadget. At the same time, there will be information being delivered about the bowler’s actions, speed, pace etc so that control can be maintained and the game is played in all honesty.

There have been bowlers who have been reported by the umpires of illegal bowling actions. Those bowlers will be called to the lab to record their arm and hand movement so their bowling actions can be recorded. The biomechanics used in the technology will assess their elbow extension and retraction and record the same. This way, if in the future, those bowlers are suspected upon, the gadget on their arm will be used to prove their case right or wrong.

There is a full team from Canberra and Brisbane doing their research into making this idea as effective as possible. The ICC is overlooking the project. There are three phases to the project and it will take another year for the project to materialize and come into effect. Of course further time will be needed for the players to get acquainted with the technology and incorporate it into their games without changing their play.

The bowlers can create their last of scandals now as very soon they will be put under major scrutiny.
