USA Cricket in conjunction with Real Cricket has introduced an Interactive Video Scorecard Analysis (IVSA) for matches involving Team USA in the current ICC World Cricket League Division 3 Tournament in Hong Kong.
From a training perspective, the video analysis should help Team USA review the performances of its own players in preparation for matches in this tournament and other tournaments, so that any possible corrective action in the analysis of Team USA’s players may be taken.
The concept, although not a new one to coaches and many national teams’ study of its own players and opponents, is innovative enough to now place the average cricket fan in the front row review seat, of individual performances of players through the IVSA concept. The post-match video analysis will be made available only on the links noted below.
Viewers can review the hitting of 4′s and 6′s by the batsmen tagged, as well as the wickets taken by bowlers, by simply following the instructions below, once at the site www.real-cricket.com or the link http://www.americancricketacademy.com/
Instructions for Video Scorecard:
In the batting section of the scorecard you can click on the:
• • 4′s column to see a video of each of the 4′s hit by that batsman
• • 6′s column to see a video of each of the 6′s hit by that batsman
• • Dismissal column to see the delivery and how that batsman was out
In the bowling section of the scorecard you can click on the:
• • W (wickets) column to see a video of each of the wickets taken by that particular bowler
USA Cricket has retained the services of Real Cricket and its technical group traveling with Team USA in Hong Kong, to build the review database, as part of the team’s match preparation analysis.
