There is something, I wanna share with you about the Modernized Cricket. In Olden Days, there were to be 60 Overs in ODI’s and Tests are played between some teams only. But, as the days and years went on, Cricket also got reformed and revolutionized. Now, Many Countries have announced Cricket as a Significant Sport. So, there is a need of Technical Implementation in Cricket too. That’s why there are many new Rules introduced into this Huge Sport’s Life by ICC.

Now, it is time to update Cricket Learning once again. Which I mean that there is a new Invention that Remodelled and made learning Cricket so much Interesting. They are nothing but New Bowling Machines, which allow the batsman to see the cloned action of bowler on the Screen attatched to the Bowling Machine.

Isn’t it quite Interesting? I was amuzed after seeing this. I just thought what on earth to lead to the  thought of such a Idea to Implement in Cricket. The Technology used in this is quite amazing too.

At first, they recorded many famous and infamous bowling actions. And then they reframed it with different speeds.

After that, They put the Swing option applied by Artificial Intelligence Coded into the Controller of the Machine.

However, I am very much happy with this Invention, because I can literally watch or observe the Bowling action going to be Delivered by the machine, and by default of being a Cricketer, there is much possibility of hitting the ball with proper timing, at Right gaps. Which is very much helpful to any upcoming batsman,as me, to learn things of this way.

I hope whoever read this  may think ” Wanna Play with these one day?.” Right. I too have the same feeling dudes. Chill out.
