As more technology makes its way into cricket, let’s have a look at a few gadgets that could potentially be an essential part of the game in the upcoming years:
Ad Analyzer: A scanning device. Cricketers’ kits are passed into it and it analyses the optimal amount of space that is to be covered by advertisements. The device is supposed to be available in three versions—Basic, which scans only the clothing: Professional, which not just scans clothes, shoes and bats, but cleans them also!
Beep Off: As cricket goes worldwide, cursing opposition players (an essential part of the rich & varied heritage of the game) is getting potentially thorny, because players often do not understand each other’s language. Enter Beep off, the automatic swear word generator. Beep off integrates a module that can be put on around one’s neck similar to an amulet that repeatedly gives off invectives in the opposite player’s language. Invectives can be modified for picky players or selected at hit and miss. An unusual Wi-Fi version of Beep off also enables players in the pavilion.
Howzaaat! The appeal analyzing kit, Sensors are placed on the players, and at whatever time they appeal for a dismissal, the sensors record the decibel level of the appeal and the amount to which it had an effect on the umpire. This kit will allow cricketers to make the just right appeal more often than not, as a consequence cutting down on preventable shouting and decreasing noise pollution on the cricket ground. (Note: Umpires can reduce the bang of Howzaat! by making purchase of Thatz how! — a device that gives off a soft humming sound, which gets in the way of the smooth functioning of Howzaaat!)
The Howl Ball: Thanks to the development of microprocessor technology, ball tampering will be a thing of the history. A pioneer in this arsenal will be the Howl Ball, with microprocessors implanted at strategic locations on the surface & the seam. Any effort to scratch the surface or lift the seam of the ball will set off an earsplitting scream or howl from the ball. (Statutory warning: Kindly don’t make use of too much saliva to shine the Howl Ball as you could be at the risk of not just ruining the circuits however getting electrocuted also!)
Tack Ticks: Strategy advisory software, Tack Ticks will let team captains take the best decision on the meadow by telling them of the best possible decision based on a set of cricketing (players’ records, existing scoring patterns, ground conditions, etc.) and non-cricketing (sponsor considerations, betting odds, etc) parameters. Tack Ticks includes a tiny component that fits at ease on the wristband of the captain and can be run utilizing a stylus that is also to be employed to tamper with the ball (users are warned of using a hack code while utilizing it on a Howl Ball)
Blah Blah! A software application for the commentators, it brings about phrases & similes that can be used by the commentators in their commentary. Commentators can go for germane phrases & similes by picking from a dropdown list or let the application create random phrases that are not supposed to be pertinent to the action.
