Pitchvision Helps CSA Launch Cricket Academy
Pitchvision recently partnered with Cricket South Africa (CSA) to help them launch their all new state-of-the-art cricket academy at the University of Pretoria.
The centre has Pitchvision installed in all four lanes to track pace, line, length, bounce and deviation and all four combine motion tracking and video capture with four live feeds for each delivery.
Lane 4 has high speed cameras and Pitchvision's brand new batting studio, allowing players to simulate specific fields and match situations while they are batting.
"We always dream of having a comparable if not the best development programme in the world," CSA Chief Executive, Haroon Lorgat, said.
Corrie van Zyl, CSA General Manager: Cricket, added: "I can say with confidence that we have a facility that is the equal of any other in the world."
Prior to their departure for the ICC World Twenty20 in Bangladesh, South African internationals Albie Morkel and Lonwabo Tsotsobe were the first to bowl on the system, which will spearhead development through the use of the PitchVision 'Cloud' where all players' performances can be viewed remotely.
