Self-introspection, self-analysis of their own performance is extremely critical for a player whether in the initial or advanced stage of the career. Technology-aided technical analysis has amended and enhanced an individual’s game be it batting, bowling, running between the wickets, fielding or throwing at the stumps from long on or long off. Such analysis has been the mainstay of preparation off-field and beyond just cricket…. for almost all sports. For years now, this facility was available to international or at the most a player representing a deep pocket county. It was unthinkable, unaffordable or unheard to the budding/grassroots player. The wait is finally over…
The best in the business, CricHQ, My Action Replay (MAR) and SportzConsult, are joining hands to make top-notch technology to be available to the players even at the lowest strata and help them improvise their game.
CricHQ along with MAR and Pathways are foraying into the Indian market on the back of SportzConsult, India’s biggest grassroots, and participative sports entity functional in schools, corporates, academies and professional leagues. The mission is to work together towards evolving a bespoke software toolset, a mobile application for customers, end-users, academies, tournament organizers and others that will enable the development and nurturing of young talents in India.
Cameron Harland – CEO and Director at CricHQ (or Cam, as he is popularly known) has been following the rise of sports as an industry in India and therefore upbeat about India as a potential market. He ardently believes the product to make big waves in the sports circuit and will result in more and more players to make it big in the international arena. Cam said, “Our decision to partner with SportzConsult is based on the excellent work they have been doing with over 6000 schools and sports academies pan India. By fusing our technology with their ever-growing reach and network, we intend to make sports training in India more analytical and competitive.”
On the other hand, the indexing of real-time events to streaming video is at the heart of MAR’s offer.
An ‘indexed cricket video streaming’ product was the first offshoot of the partnership between the two tech giants. The product is flexible and scalable to meet the market dynamics. The association augments the range of offerings by integrating MAR video capture which provides a cost-effective yet quality video capture solution with CricHQ, and includes infographics and statistics prevalent only with a professionally produced broadcast as yet.
Jitendra Joshi, Co-Founder, and Director at SportzConsult, said, “CricHQ and MAR have been taking colossal strides infusing technology and sports and have produced exceptional results across the globe.
“In India, it’s the small-town wonders that are making the headlines nationally and internationally. We are happy to be a part of this initiative which will go a long way in developing sports careers.”
