Swiss.- October 24, 2022 www.zonadeazar.com Sportradar and the International Cricket Council (ICC) have released a live fielding data solution that uses a data collection tool to capture fielding and batting statistics.
It will debut at the ongoing ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia and is the latest release in the partnership between ICC and Sportradar.
The supplier says its new solution captures up to 80 data points per ball bowled and can do so at low latencies.
The data will feature on ICC’s fan-facing website and its mobile application. Sportradar’s data can also be provided via feeds to media outlets and broadcasters globally.
Sportradar’s proprietary tool also allows cricket boards around the world to access these analytics, as well as power their own match centres and assets.

We look forward to sharing the outcomes and benefits with our cricket partners worldwide.”
